James Comey to testify publicly before the Senate Intelligence Committee

"I hope that former Director Comey's testimony will help answer some of the questions that have arisen since Director Comey was so suddenly dismissed by the President", Warner said in the same statement, according to the Post. As more troubling details come out about Comey's termination as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is looking forward to clearing up some of the speculation and finding some real answers, according to Senator Warner in the joint statement from Committee Chairs.

Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify in open session before the Senate Intelligence Committee about the bureaus investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 US presidential election, intensifying President Donald Trumps political troubles. No date for his testimony has been set, but it will be some time after Memorial Day (May 29).

The joint statement came just hours after the Post reported that a senior White House advisor close to the president is reportedly a person of interest in the investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation.

Comey has been at the heart of the scandals enveloping the White House after Trump fired him last week while he was leading the FBI's investigation into Russia's election-year meddling and contact with the Trump campaign.

Wherever Comey testifies, Americans deserve to hear what he has to say, Warner said.

The reports came just as Trump flew to Saudi Arabia to kick off his first foreign trip as United States leader - highlighting how the controversy over his team's alleged links to Moscow is dogging his fledgling presidency.

Both Warner and the committee's chairman, Richard Burr, indicated they were looking forward to Mr Comey's testimony about Russian interference in the November 8 presidential elections that saw Mr Trump secure the White House by scoring the electoral college, though Democratic rival Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. Comey's commitment to testify before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is not unexpected, despite what many believed to be a thinly veiled threat about taped conversations from President Trump via Twitter.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein issued a joint statement Friday saying they were "extremely disappointed" he declined an invitation to testify before their panel. He reportedly wrote that Trump asked him to end the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Mr Trump told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov last week that Mr Comey was a "nut job", according to the Times, citing notes taken at the meeting and read to the paper by a U.S. official.

Comey's memo about Trump's comments on the Flynn investigation has only added to concerns about the White House's shifting explanations for Comey's dismissal.

On Thursday, Trump declared himself the victim of the "greatest witch hunt" in American political history and denied allegations of collusion.
