Acting homeland security secretary finally agrees to testify

WASHINGTON (AP) ó Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan has agreed to testify Wednesday before a House committee on global terrorism.

McAleenan had challenged a subpoena sent to him by the House Homeland Security Committee. He had said he could not attend the hearing because it would be held on his second-to-last day in office, and he was focused on the transition.

In the end, he agreed to appear. Chairman Bennie Thompson sent McAleenan a letter Tuesday that said the subpoena had been withdrawn.

The hearing is on terrorism, but itís highly likely the lawmakers will ask McAleenan about his time within the administration.

A replacement has not yet been named. McAleenan had been in the acting position for about six months after former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen quit.
