i'd gone to the Committee's website, but had found no press releases about this, but oh, yes: it's out and about; i chose this because at least it wasn't behind a paywall.

"“The organization, through its Twitter account, posted a letter dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available "for a closed door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location."
A spokeswoman for Warner declined to comment on witnesses. A spokeswoman for Burr also declined to comment.
Assange's legal team is "considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard," WikiLeaks wrote on Twitter.
Assange's testimony would be of interest to those investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election."
declined to comment? is this a calculated ruse?
