Former FBI Director James Comey has postponed a hearing before the House Oversight Committee that had been planned for Wednesday. Comey was asked to testify before the panel about the circumstances of his dismissal this month, a move that caused a major backlash against President Trump and raised more questions about the FBI’s Russia investigation, which Comey had been overseeing.
He’s expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Russia probe later this month. But his testimony before the House will come only after he has spoken with Robert Mueller, the former FBI director serving as a special counsel for the bureau’s Russia investigation, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz announced Monday. “He wants to speak with special counsel prior to public testimony,” Chaffetz wrote on Twitter, adding that Wednesday’s hearing was “postponed.” No details were given on when it will be rescheduled.
