Trump's ex aide to testify before House committee

United States President Donald Trump's former campaign policy aide George Papadopoulos will be interviewed by the House investigators on October 25, his lawyer Caroline Polisi told Politico.

The voluntary interview comes ahead of the midterm election and is part of GOP investigation into the FBI's handling of the Russia probe.

Papadopoulos' overseas activities triggered the FBI investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 US election. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty of lying to the FBI and was sentenced to jail but later claimed he was set up by Western intelligence agencies.
