Comey to testify Trump pressured him to end Russia probe

Ousted FBI Director James Comey will say President Trump pressured him to end an investigation into one of his aides during testimony before a Senate panel probing Russian involvement in the election, according to a report on Wednesday.

Comey, who was fired by Trump on May 9, is working out details of when he would appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee, one of several panels looking into Russia’s interference in the election, along with the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller, CNN reported, citing a source. His testimony could come as soon as next week.
