Via Fox News:
Former FBI Director James Comey has declined an invitation to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week, a spokesman for the committee confirmed to Fox News Friday.
Comey had been invited to testify before a closed session in the wake of his controversial firing by President Trump earlier this week, but declined to do so.
Comey had been invited by Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and top Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia. Their panel is investigating Russia’s election meddling and allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Warner announced that Comey would not be appearing before his panel in an interview on MSNBC Friday.
The session would have provided Comey a first chance to discuss with lawmakers the circumstances of his firing.
This announcement came after President Trump tweeted a warning to Comey which caused mass hysteria from the fake news media.
