The committee subpoenaed Comey last month to testify about investigations into the Donald Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation and Hillary Clinton's emails. Democrats will also attend the interview.
The panels are investigating Clinton's use of a private email server while she was in office and about the handling of the probe into whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 US election. "One - we could have done this in open setting", Comey said.
He also said that President Barack Obama never ordered him to have the Federal Bureau of Investigation surveil or infiltrate the Trump campaign. Under a deal struck with the House Judiciary Committee, he can speak afterward and a transcript will be released. This is a term that he began using shortly after Democrats reclaimed the House of Representatives in November.
"Yes", Nadler said. "Because it's a waste of time to start with".
Comey had two attorneys with him, Issa said, one of whom was a DOJ attorney who advised him "time and time again" not to answer key questions about their investigation into FBI malfeasance in 2016. Comey was accused in the report of making a serious error in judgment by sending the letter to lawmakers that was he reopening the email investigation. The president also took a swipe at special counsel Robert Mueller, who now heads the investigation that has ensnared many of Trump's closest allies. "The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersion on the real investigation, which is Mueller".

The Republican chairman of the House's judiciary committee, Virginia Rep.
In their filing, Comey's attorneys argued the subpoena to testify privately violated House rules, "harasses the witness", had no "legitimate goal", and that it "wreaks of political theater". Bob Goodlatte, decried Comey's use of "baseless litigation" and called it an "attempt to run out the clock on this Congress", a reference to the few weeks left before Democrats take control. Both Goodlatte and South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the chairman of the oversight panel, are also retiring at the end of the year.
The interview comes as GOP lawmakers wrap up a yearlong investigation into decisions made at the Justice Department during the 2016 presidential election.
