Former FBI Director James Comey is expected to publicly testify before the Senate as early as next week about the bureau’s ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. Comey is expected to specifically address whether President Trump pressured him to end the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. A person familiar with the plans told CNN that Comey has already spoken to Special Counsel Robert Mueller about “the parameters for his testimony to ensure there are no legal entanglements as a result of his public account.” There is not yet an official date set for Comey’s testimony.
