House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz is inviting former FBI director James Comey to testify next Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
Chaffetz (R-Utah) told POLITICO he has officially scheduled the hearing and is in the process of trying to connect with Comey. The hearing will be the day the FBI is due to send documents to the oversight panel.
Comey hasn’t officially accepted the invite, “but wants to testify publicly as soon as he can,” one person who has spoken to Comey said. “They are trying to connect,” this person said.
