Parnas pleaded not guilty in federal court in Manhattan last month for participating in a scheme that used a shell company to raise money for an election committee linked to Donald Trump.
Parnas would be an important witness in the investigation of the committees of the House of Representatives, if he agreed to cooperate with them.
