Comey Agrees To Testify Before The Senate Intelligence Committee

Comey Agrees To Testify Before The Senate Intelligence Committee

A senior GOP source previously told CNN it was unlikely Comey would testify publicly now that former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been named special counsel for the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. Mark Warner, D-VA, Vice Chairman of the Committee announced Friday that Comey, the embattled former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, has committed to testify in open session before the Committee.

Burr says the committee wants to hear from Comey on his role in the development of the USA intelligence agencies' assessment that Russian Federation interfered in last year's election.

Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the panel, said Comey's testimony would help "answer some of the questions that have arisen since Director Comey was so suddenly dismissed by the President".

As director of the FBI, Comey oversaw the investigation of potential links between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's campaign.

White House lawyers researching impeachment
However, a White House official denied the report saying "it's not true" that the lawyers are researching impeachment procedures. President Trump addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time on February 28th, 2017.

Trump has been embroiled in controversy after reports that he attempted to pressure Comey to drop the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn emerged earlier this week.

Rep. Will Hurd of Texas sits on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which invited Comey to testify next week.

Chaffetz, who announced Thursday he was leaving Congress at the end of June, has requested Comey's memos, along with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

But it appears Comey has chosen to testify just once more before Congress.

Hurd also disagreed with the President's comments on Thursday that the appointment of a special counsel "hurts our country". The investigation is now in the hands of a special counsel, as well as multiple Congressional committees. "President Trump acted based on the clear recommendation of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions", a statement from the White House read.

President Trump fired Comey less than two weeks ago.

Trump has been on record as calling the investigation a "witch hunt".
