Reports of the death of the House Intelligence Committee's Russia investigation have been greatly exaggerated, it seems. Bloomberg's Billy House reported Friday that former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski received letters this week asking them to testify before the committee in early January.

Prominent House Democrats have recently sounded the alarm that their Republican counterparts may be trying to put a premature kibosh on the House's Russia investigation. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the committee's ranking member, told NBC News that Democrats wanted to conduct another 30 interviews, but Republicans have been intentionally stonewalling them. Conversely, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told NBC News that the investigation should finish "as quickly as possible," and additionally told Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) that the end of 2017 was a "natural boundary" for the effort.
