Among those to be released are interviews with President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, his longtime spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, and his former bodyguard Keith Schiller. The panel will also release the interviews of dozens of others, including former Obama administration officials and other Trump associates including Roger Stone, who is currently the subject of a grand jury investigation.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who confirmed the panel’s vote, said “some of the most important” transcripts six in total are still being withheld. They include those of interviews with Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California, Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida and the heads of intelligence agencies.
The panel’s interviews form the basis for its GOP-authored report released earlier this year when the committee ended its inquiry. The report concluded there was no coordination between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian efforts to sway the election.
Committee Democrats voted against approving the report. Those Democrats, led by Schiff, have said the investigation was shut down too quickly and that the panel didn’t interview enough witnesses or gather enough evidence. AP NSA
