Scott Schools, the Justice Department’s highest ranking career official, and a close adviser to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, is joining Uber Technologies Inc., the Wall Street Journal reports.

Schools becomes the company’s first chief compliance officer, as the ride-hailing giant seeks to move past a series of regulatory problems and other controversies ahead of a highly anticipated initial public offering next year, the Journal rights.

Uber is expected to announce the hiring to staff on Tuesday.

School departed the Justice Department last week, an agency that has come under constant attack by President Donald Trump.

Committee Subpoenas Former FBI Lawyer Who Exchanged Anti-Trump Emails With Agent

Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer, finds herself getting ready for the firing squad on Capitol Hill.

You might recall that Page exchanged anti-Trump text messages with FBI agent Peter Strzok, triggering a storm of controversy.

CNN, citing “two congressional sources,”  reports that she has been subpoenaed for a closed-door interview this week with the House Judiciary and Oversight committees.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, subpoenaed Page to attend a deposition on Wednesday, the sources said, one day before Strzok is slated to testify publicly before the two House panels, CNN reports.

Page’s attorney Amy Jeffress issued a statement to CNN saying she’s been working with the committee  to arrange for her client’s “voluntary appearance.”

“We asked the committee staff to explain the scope of the investigation and provide sufficient notice that would allow her to prepare, which are normal conditions for congressional committees, but these committees have not followed the normal process,” Jeffress said. “The FBI has agreed to provide Lisa with her notes and other documents to allow her to prepare, but they have not provided those documents to date, so we are still waiting to work out a reasonable date for her interview. Lisa has cooperated voluntarily with another congressional committee that had no objection to explaining the scope of its investigation or providing sufficient notice for her interview. Lisa also cooperated fully with the OIG investigation and appeared voluntarily for multiple interviews, including after she left the FBI.”
