Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski arrived Thursday for his second interview by the House Intelligence Committee, despite uncertainty over whether he'll have anything more to say.

Corey Lewandowski has returned for more closed-door questioning by the committee, which is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and any collusion by those around Trump as he was supposed to show up even though he hasn't been summoned.

He could be one of the last major witnesses before House Intelligence as it looks into allegations that Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 US campaign by hacking Democrats' emails and using social media to spread propaganda and misleading reports, and the possibility that Trump associates may have colluded with Moscow. Lewandowski's reappearance is said to be voluntarily.

It wasn't clear whether Representative Michael Conaway of Texas, the Republican leading the investigation, would go along.

But Democrats have said they have a significant list of witnesses still to call, as well as documents to subpoena.

Panel members also remain unsatisfied with the testimony of two other high-profile witnesses close to Trump. He refused to answer questions about things that happened after his time on the campaign, according to the committee's top Democrat, Adam Schiff of California.
