Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told Reuters that he would like the committee's GOP leader Rep. Devin Nunes, to call Ivanka Trump and former White House strategist Steve Bannon as witnesses. He also wants Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner to testify again.

Schiff's comments came shortly before it was reported that Bannon is expected to appear before the panel next week as part of the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.

The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," by Michael Wolff, is based on over 200 interviews with the President and prominent figures inside and outside the administration. It includes tidbits about the Trump White House's key players, including the deal between Trump's elder daughter and her husband.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said he wants to call "dozens" more witnesses to testify in front of the panel in the Russia probe , including first daughter and Devin Nunes, to call Ivanka Trump and former White House strategist Steve Bannon as witnesses .

Bannon reportedly hired Washington lawyer Bill Burck to help prepare him to testify.

The House Intel Committee has interviewed several witnesses, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Eric Trump and Kushner, but Democrats on the panel have expressed concerns that Republicans have declined to call dozens of others in an effort to shut down the probe ahead of completion.

One Democrat on the committee said earlier this month that the panel is considering publishing a report detailing how GOP members tried to hinder the investigation, including by refusing to call witnesses.

President Trump, who has repeatedly insisted that there was "no collusion," said earlier this week that he thinks it is "unlikely" he will be called as a witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.


Intel's new cameras add human-like 3D vision to any machine .
Intel has released two ready-to-use RealSense depth cameras, the D415 and the D435, that can add 3D capabilities to any device or machine. They both come in a USB-powered form factor and are capable of processing depth in real time, thanks to the chipmaker's new RealSense vision processor D4. The models work indoors and outdoors in any lighting environment, so they can be used for almost any machine that needs a depth camera. Those include drones meant to soar the skies and robots with AR/VR features.
