Subject: Burton Comittee may hear from controversial fund-raiser Johnny Chung
The House Government Reform and Oversight Committee has released its witness list for this week's hearings, scheduled for Thursday and Friday.
The stated purpose of this week's hearings is to "outline to Committee members Democratic donor Johnny Chung's unusual access to the White House."
Thursday's witnesses are Maggie Williams, former Chief of Staff to the First Lady; Nancy Hernreich, Deputy Assistant to the President for Appointments and Scheduling; Kelly Crawford, former Staff Assistant to Nancy Hernreich; Carol Khare, former Assistant to Donald L. Fowler, former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee; and Ceandra Scott, former staff member at the DNC.
On Friday the Committee might hear from the Chung himself about his campaign contributions to the Democratic National Committee; Brooke Darby, former Executive Assistant to Nancy Soderberg at the National Security Council; and Robert Suettinger, former Director of Asian Affairs for the National Security Council.
In a recent interview with CNN Congressional Correspondent Bob Franken, Committee Chairman Dan Burton (R-Ind.) said that he will not be surprised if Johnny Chung exercises his Fifth Amendment rights and refuses to testify on the grounds of self incrimination.
Hearings will begin at 10 a.m. ET both days.
