Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg is slated to meet in January with the Senate Intelligence Committee as the panel continues to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Nunberg confirmed to The Washington Post that the meeting has been scheduled and said he is "happy to cooperate and appear” in front of the committee. The meeting is likely to be a closed session, according to The Post.
