Clinton Campaign Chairman Podesta to Answer Congressional Questions in Russia Probe

In the wake of a bombshell story about Russia's meddling in the 2016 US presidential election - and persistent allegations that US President Donald Trump's campaign may have colluded with Russian Federation to win - Trump has taken to Twitter to accuse someone else of collusion: his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

Several members told CNN they were skeptical that the panel would be able to obtain the memos, which detail Comey's account of President Donald Trump's interactions with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, including his ask to drop the Michael Flynn criminal probe.

"Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders", Trump wrote.

The congressional panel is investigating whether President Trump's campaign team colluded with the Russians in an attempt to interfere with the election.

The committee is expected to question Podesta about the leak of thousands of his emails, which became a political headache and embarrassment for Clinton in the heat of the campaign season.

The panel also has set a deadline for Friday to obtain memos from fired FBI Director James Comey about his interactions with Trump, including over Comey's allegations that the President urged him to drop the investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Trump said in an interview with Fox News on Sunday that objections that exist within his party can be overcome through negotiation.

CNN reported the meeting will take place sometime next week.
