After initially making it clear he wanted his testimony to be public, former FBI Director James Comey announced this week that he and Republican lawmakers have reached an agreement.
Comey was subpoenaed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on the topic of the bureau’s actions during the 2016 presidential election.
“Grateful for a fair hearing from judge,” he tweeted Sunday. “Hard to protect my rights without being in contempt, which I don’t believe in. So will sit in the dark, but Republicans agree I’m free to talk when done and transcript released in 24 hours. This is the closest I can get to public testimony.”
