Former D.C. mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown at a council hearing in March, where he was not a witness.

The D.C. Council had been trying to serve Brown with a subpoena for weeks and it had been unsuccessful until Friday, when a process server apparently served Brown's fiance with one, although Brown maintains that never happened.

Still, he says he will show up Monday before the D.C. Council to testify about some of the allegations he's made about receiving cash payments and about receiving a job for his help during Gray's campaign.

Brown also told the judge that he wouldn't stay for, as he put it, five, six, seven or eight hours, and he said there were certain things federal investigators told him he should not talk about. And on both of these points the judge agreed with Brown. The hearing will start at 1 p.m. and will end no later than 7 p.m.

After the hearing outside of the courthouse, Brown told reporters that he will also bring evidence to back up some of the claims he made. But when pressed, he wouldn't elaborate.
