Glenn Simpson, a co-founder of Fusion GPS, agreed to testify in a closed-door setting before the House Intelligence Committee next week in exchange for the panel withdrawing a subpoena, per CNN.

Why it matters: Fusion GPS, a Washington-based investigative firm, has been under heightened scrutiny in recent months for commissioning the Steele dossier, which details Trump's alleged interactions with Russians during his campaign. The firm was also hired by Hillary Clinton and the DNC to collect damaging information about Trump.
