Former FBI Director James B. Comey has agreed to testify in open session before a Senate panel investigating Russian interface in the presidential election, the committee announced Friday.
Mr. Comey, who was abruptly fired last week by President Trump, has become the focus of allegations that the president was interfering in the FBI probe of collusion with Russia.
His testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee will be scheduled after the Memorial Day holiday, said Sen. Richard Burr, the committee chairman.
“The Committee looks forward to receiving testimony from the former Director on his role in the development of the Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, and I am hopeful that he will clarify for the American people recent events that have been broadly reported in the media,” said Mr. Burr, North Carolina Republican.
Sen. Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the committee, said Mr. Comey “deserves an opportunity to tell his story. Moreover, the American people deserve an opportunity to hear it.”
