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.”

    It is mind-boggling how inept the Republicans in Congress are. Why is Mitch McConnell letting Comey dictate the terms of his testimony? Having that POS testify in open session is absurd. It will be a circus.
    The Republican Party is an embarrassment.

      Andy, it pains me to agree with you, but they are. They are the most inept, stupid, incompetent, disloyal group and only the Republicans can snatch DEFEAT from the jaws of victory.

        That’s because they are mostly RINO’s ( ie Democrats…ie Commies!!!)…they are the algae in the swamp…they thrive on the excrement that foments from the Commies mouths and then they multiply…just like the putrification of a lake!!! We need to get rid of them too. This change will take decades to complete…just keep on plowing the field!!!
