Ms Yates had been expected to tell a congressional intelligence committee on Wednesday what she knows about meetings between Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
The Senate committee also announced Monday it will hear testimony from Jared Kushner, a senior advisor and the son-in-law of Trump, about his meeting during the transition with the top executive of a Russian bank on which the US had slapped sanctions. But getting one off the ground won't be easy - particularly in such a partisan political climate, observers say.
Investigative commissions are fairly rare, with just seven formed between 1989 and 2016. She said his actions raise questions about whether the panel's investigation can be unbiased and independent.
For the Trump Administration, the past few weeks have been rife with controversy, policy change and the failure to deliver on a major campaign promise. He compared the importance of the investigation to both 9/11 and the Watergate scandal.
Since the money comes from the budget, it requires an approval from Congress through an appropriations bill.
The panoply of outside groups competing for primacy is reminiscent of the sometimes problematic internal factions at the White House itself, though the groups' leaders say there's plenty of room for everyone. Locating private funding could be another option, he added, although that could be hard to secure.
But GOP congressman Trey Gowdy told the Weekly Standard, "Jesus would not be a satisfactory chairperson to some of my Democratic colleagues".

Leaders for some of the Trump groups said they viewed backing the legislation as a problem for Congress, not the White House.
Even Republican politicians are beginning to recognize the harm Nunes has done to any impartial investigation. "You can't keep your credibility!" Those include who would sit on the committee (generally a 10-member bipartisan panel), how far-reaching the investigation would be and who would be called to testify.
"The opposition was very well-organized", said Republican strategist Alex Conant. We have had an investigation on Russian Federation for many many years. On Monday, he insisted that his source, who he met on the grounds of the White House one day before going public with these reports, was an intelligence official.
On March 20, Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey said the F.B.I. has "no information" to confirm the wiretapping allegations, according to The New York Times.
But Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., a member of the committee, said Tuesday that Nunes should step down "in the interest of our integrity". "Thank goodness we have one".
Other members of the House Intelligence Committee have also called for Nunes to recuse himself from the investigation.
On Tuesday, March 28, chairman of the investigative committee Rep. Devin Nunes canceled all House Intelligence Committee meetings for the week.
Nunes said from what he saw, the unmasking appeared unnecessary.
But the next morning, the Justice Department sent a letter to O'Neil, telling him any final determination rests with the White House.
