Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe will not testify next week at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing after two members of the committee tested positive for Covid-19, according to a letter sent by McCabe’s attorney to Sen. Lindsey Graham, who chairs the committee.

“Mr. McCabe is willing, able, and eager to testify in person about Crossfire Hurricane at any time in the future when it is safe to do so. But he is not willing to put his family’s health at risk to do so. For these reasons, we are unwilling to appear in person for the Oct. 6 hearing; and for reasons of fairness, we are unwilling to testify remotely. A fair and appropriate hearing of this kind – which is complex and contentious – simply cannot be conducted other than in person,” .

McCabe was set to testify on “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s investigation into President Trump’s potential campaign ties to Russia. That investigation was eventually taken over by special counsel Robert Mueller.
