"We’re going to need evidence from Rudy Giuliani," Schiff told "60 Minutes" correspondent Scott Pelley. "And it’s our intention as soon as first thing next week to subpoena him for documents. And there may very well come a time where we want to hear from him directly."

Schiff's remarks come after he explicitly left the door open in an earlier interview on Sunday to having Giuliani to appear before his panel. "I don't want to commit myself to that at this point," he told NBC's "Meet the Press." "We certainly have to do a lot of work to see what Giuliani has been doing in Ukraine."

A whistleblower report ultimately led to the release of a readout of the call between Trump and Zelensky in which the president appeared to urge the Ukrainian leader to look into both individuals. Biden is currently one of the top candidates in the Democratic presidential primary.

Giuliani has repeatedly railed against the Democrats' investigation. On Sunday, he told CNN he would be willing to testifying before the House Intelligence Committee after consulting with Trump.

Capitol Hill is also bracing for closed-door testimony from the whistleblower, whose lawyer confirmed on Sunday evening was still willing to speak with lawmakers. However, according to the lawyer, a date and time had not yet been set for the testimony.
