• Former FBI Director James Comey will testify in open session before Senate intelligence committee

    Updated:

    WASHINGTON - Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify before the Senate intelligence committee after Memorial Day.

    The committee's chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, and the ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner, announced Friday that Comey will testify in an open setting before the committee. The date of the hearing has not yet been set.

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

    He says he hopes Comey's testimony will answer some of the questions that have arisen since Comey was suddenly dismissed last week by President Donald Trump.
