  • James Comey

Comey said in a tweet Sunday that it was "hard to protect my rights without being in contempt" and that he will "sit in the dark".

McFadden asked whether Comey could release a transcript of his testimony to get the full picture before the public.

Comey challenged a subpoena issued by Rep.

Comey challenged a subpoena issued by Representative Bob Goodlatte, the Republican head of the House Judiciary Committee, to appear before the panel.

He is expected to be questioned over decisions not to prosecute Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server and the investigation into potential collusion between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's election campaign team.

At the heart of the case is whether the panel should be able to force Comey to testify in secret about the FBI's investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Former FBI Director James Comey has reached a deal to testify privately to the House Judiciary Committee, backing off his legal fight for an open hearing, his attorney said Sunday.

"Mr. Comey will join us for a closed-door transcribed interview later this week", the statement said.

"The broader objective of these tweets and leaks appears to be to mislead the public and to undermine public confidence in the FBI and the DOJ during a time when President Trump and members of his administration and campaign team are reported to be under investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other law enforcement authorities", Comey wrote in his complaint.

Comey agreed to sit for a voluntary interview on Friday under terms that include that "so long as the interview proceeds as a voluntary interview, an Federal Bureau of Investigation representative will be present to advise concerning the disclosure of Federal Bureau of Investigation information", said his lawyer David N. Kelley.

Moscow denies meddling and Trump denies campaign collusion, calling the Mueller investigation a political witch hunt.

The original subpoena requires Comey to testify behind closed doors to the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.

The agreement came a day before lawyers were to appear at a court hearing. Democrats assume control of the majority and subpoena power in the new year.

Comey has received a subpoena from the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee before.
