Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe will return to Capitol Hill to answer more questions concerning possible political bias within the bureau.
McCabe will be questioned by members of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees in a closed-door meeting Thursday.
The anticipated interview comes after McCabe testified for eight hours on Tuesday about allegations of partisanship among agents assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
However, McCabe will not be questioned about any findings related to the probe.
The House Judiciary Committee will issue new subpoenas following its closed-door interview with McCabe.
According to congressional sources, several unnamed DOJ and FBI officials will be called in to testify.
This report comes after House Oversight chairman Trey Gowdy sent a letter to the DOJ on Tuesday to request permission to interview FBI attorney Lisa Page.
Documents show Page exchanged hundreds of anti-Trump text messages with former Mueller investigator Peter Stzrok while he was overseeing both the Russia probe and Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
Gowdy also requested permission to interview Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Chief of Staff Jim Rybicki.
