WASHINGTON – FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify before the U.S. House Oversight Committee Thursday, Chairman Jason Chaffetz announced Wednesday morning.
“Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable. Congress and the American people have a right to understand the depth and breadth of the FBI's investigation,” Chaffetz said in a statement.
“I thank Director Comey for accepting the invitation to publicly answer these important questions."
No Illinois Republicans serve on the U.S. House Oversight Committee. Two Democrat members – Tammy Duckworth and Robin Kelly – do represent Illinois on the panel.
