WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top Democrat on the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, said on Thursday there are dozens of witnesses he would like called before the panel as it investigates whether President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Those witnesses would include Trump’s daughter Ivanka and Steve Bannon, his former adviser, U.S. Representative Adam Schiff told reporters. He also said he would like Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to appear again before the committee while noting that the choice of witnesses is determined by the panel’s Republican leadership.
