Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, the White House said Friday.
Mueller’s testimony comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to the Justice Department and the White Capitol Police on Thursday seeking records related to a 1986 case involving a suspected Iran-contra weapons shipment.
The White House did not say what documents it was seeking.

The Senate Judiciary committee is looking to determine if the FBI broke laws by allowing the shipment of weapons to Iran, Feinstein said on “Fox News Sunday.”
She said the committee would release documents “as they become available” and urged the White Senate to hold the hearing.
