ABC, CBS News to Carry James Comey Senate Testimony Live

The Latest WH says Trump won't block Comey testimony

Former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before Congress is scheduled this week, but U.S. President Donald Trump will not invoke his executive privilege to stop it, according to the White House.

But she said Mr Trump will not take that step in order to ensure a "swift and thorough examination of the facts" related to Mr Comey's sacking and the multiple investigations into Russia's election meddling.

The significance of the move lies in the fact that Comey was probing alleged Russian hacking in last year's US presidential election.

Comey is scheduled to testify on June 8 before the Senate Intelligence Committee about his May 9 firing by Trump, first in public and then behind closed doors.

"The President's power to assert executive privilege is well-established".

Comey is expected to be questioned about the circumstances of his firing and allegations that Trump has tried to stifle the agency's Russian Federation investigation and divert attention to intelligence leaks that have hurt his administration.

A source told CBS News Comey will remain available to Mueller and investigators. Comey was subsequently fired by Trump in May.

Should Comey deliver devastating testimony on any of those questions that suggests Trump obstructed justice, he will significantly worsen the political challenges facing the President.
