James Comey has agreed to testify in an open forum before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

A date will be scheduled after Memorial Day.

Comey will not also address the Senate Judiciary Committee, however – a decision Sen. Chuck Grassley sharply criticized:

Comey, Trump at a distance even before firing

  1. Earlier today, the White House did not dispute reports that President Trump, during a meeting with Russian diplomats, called Comey a “nut job” and remarked that his firing relieved pressure over the ongoing Russia probe.
  2. Associates of Comey have said that the ex-FBI Director aimed to keep President Trump at a cautious distance.
