Former FBI chief Comey arrives for GOP interview

As Mueller investigation heats up, Trump unleashes barrage of tweets attacking investigators

They will also ask him about his decision to not file criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server before she was even interviewed.

Former FBI Director James Comey is sitting with the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees behind closed doors on Friday to answer (or not answer) their questions.

Comey, who spent Friday testifying before House lawmakers, told reporters his return visit will likely come the "week after next".

Gowdy took issue with Comey's initial insistence that it be a public hearing, allegedly in the interest of transparency.

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that the "phony" Russian investigation is a "witch hunt" and a presidential harassment without which his approval ratings would have been 75 per cent. Mueller took over the department's investigation when he was appointed in May 2017.

"This is a waste of time to start with", Nadler said. "The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersions on the real investigation which is Mueller". A transcript of the interview with members of the House Judiciary Committee will be released as soon as possible, perhaps in the next 24 hours. He had argued that Republicans would selectively leak details from the interview.

He also complained that Comey's lawyers were preventing the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief from answering some questions from lawmakers.

Over the past year, Republicans on the two committees have called in a series of officials and suggested after the closed-door meetings that there is evidence of bias.

Democrats complain Republicans are simply trying to fuel a conspiracy theory to protect Trump from the ongoing Russian Federation probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Strzok defiantly fought with angry Republican lawmakers in a riveting hearing that featured Strzok reading aloud from his sometimes-lewd texts and Democrats openly yelling at their Republican counterparts.

"It is being reported that Leakin' James Comey was told by Department of Justice attorneys not to answer the most important questions", Trump tweeted.

Expect two diverging stories to emerge after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's interview, Comey's lawyer suggested in an interview on MSNBC - one from Comey's camp, another from House Republicans. Two other Republicans, Reps.

Comey's last appearance before lawmakers was 18 months ago, at a public hearing in June 2017. Yet it did not second-guess his conclusion that Clinton should not have been prosecuted, despite assertions by Trump and his supporters that anyone less politically connected would have been charged.

McCabe was let go after Chris Wray became Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
