Comey clear to testify about Trump talks, says special counsel

Trump to head overseas without announcing new FBI director

The Justice Department, in an attempt to quell the furor over Comey's ouster, this week hired former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to lead the investigation.

Comey, who was sacked by Trump on May 9, is working out details of when he would appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee, one of several panels looking into Russia's interference in the election, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and special counsel Robert Mueller, CNN reported, citing a source.

Former FBI Director James Comey plans to testify publicly before the Senate as early as next week, CNN is reporting.

Comey wrote a number of personal memos recounting the substance of those conversations with Trump. Comey has spent three decades in law enforcement.

In an interview with NBC, Trump said the Russian Federation investigation, which he considers unfair, was on his mind when he made a decision to fire Comey.

United States authorities seize former NY congressman Anthony Weiner's laptop and mobile devices as part of a probe into allegations he sent sexually explicit text messages to a 15-year-old. They go on to discover emails from Clinton and Huma Abedin, Weiner's wife and a close Clinton aid, on the devices.

"Your question supposes facts that have not been confirmed", Spicer said, when asked about Trump's son-in-law, top aide Jared Kushner, and whether he sought to coordinate secret discussions with Russian officials after the November elections.

Sessions, a close Trump adviser, withdrew from the Russian Federation investigation in March after acknowledging two previously undisclosed contacts with Kislyak last summer and fall. "It took a lot of guts".

The Senate's main inquiry is the nature of Comey's encounters with President Donald Trump and whether Comey took contemporaneous notes of their meetings, as reported in the media.

The source added that Comey is unlikely to be willing to discussed details of the FBI's investigation into the possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. USA Today was first to report that Trump would be meeting with Pistole.

Following Mueller's appointment, it was unclear whether Comey would be allowed to testify before the Senate committee. "I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it", Trump told NBC News.

The White House, however, wouldn't specify if either candidate was considered a "finalist".

"The Committee welcomes the testimony of former Director Comey, but does not have an announcement to make at this time", Rebecca Glover, Burr's spokesperson, told CBS News.
