Jeff Dannenberg, a lawyer for Kislin, reportedly told CNN that the Giuliani associate is “being cooperative” with the Intelligence Committee.

Dannenberg also said that his client has reached an agreement with the intelligence panel to avoid having to appear for a deposition.

"Following an understanding reached with counsel for the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Kislin will not be appearing for an interview or deposition today," Dannenberg said, according to CNN.

"Mr. Kislin is not refusing to cooperate with the Committee's requests. I continue to communicate with the Committee's counsel to satisfy the Committee that Mr. Kislin has no knowledge of any matters relevant to the pending impeachment inquiry,” he added.

The development comes shortly after two other Giuliani associates contacted by the House for documents and testimony, Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas, were arrested on campaign finance charges while attempting to leave the country. 

Revelations that Trump asked Ukraine's president to investigate the Biden's helped spark an impeachment inquiry.
