The report said Comey could testify as early as next week.
The New York Times first reported that Comey in February wrote a memo that Trump had asked him to shut down the investigation into Flynn, the former national security adviser. The memo's existence was confirmed by Fox News.
The memo reportedly said that Trump said to Comey that, “I hope you can let this go.” The president reportedly was referring to Comey’s FBI’s investigation into Flynn.
Flynn was forced to resign Feb. 13, the day before the conversation between Trump and Comey depicted in the memo.
A Comey associate, who wasn’t authorized to discuss details of the testimony, told The Associated Press that Robert Mueller III, who was appointed earlier this month by the Department of Justice to lead the government’s inquiry, is allowing Comey to make certain statements.
A spokesman for Mueller responded to Fox News’ request for comment, but said he did not have any information on Comey’s potential testimony, or whether Mueller has cleared the former FBI director for public testimony.Read more at FoxNews
