Comey Reveals Testimony Deal With House Republicans

Axios reports:

Former FBI Director James Comey tweeted Sunday that he had reached a deal to take part in a hearing with House Republicans behind closed doors but with the ability to release a transcript the next day, stating the deal was ” the closest I can get to public testimony.”

Comey had been subpoenaed by House Republicans to discuss Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as well as Russian interference in the 2016 election in a closed door setting, but he asked a federal judge to quash the subpoena while arguing that he preferred to take part in a public hearing.
