Former FBI Director James Comey is dropping his legal challenge to a congressional subpoena, his attorney announced Sunday.
Comey has made a deal to testify privately in front of the House Judiciary Committee regarding the FBI's investigations into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state and possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. He will be able to speak freely once the hearing is over, and a transcript will be released 24 hours after he finishes his testimony, The Associated Press reports.
Comey was fighting to make his testimony public because, as his attorneys explained, he was concerned that House Republicans would leak select parts of his testimony. President Trump fired Comey in May 2017. His interview is scheduled for Friday.
