  • Seventy-five percent would make Trump easily one of the most popular leaders on the planet

Former FBI Director James Comey has arrived on Capitol Hill for a closed-door interview with two House committees.

Mueller was expected to provide court filings Friday related to Trump's jailed former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former lawyer and longtime fixer Michael Cohen.

Comey had originally demanded that any interview before the joint panel of House Judiciary Committee and Oversight and Government Reform Committee members be conducted in public to avoid selective leaks.

"I'm still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions". "We would be giving him a pass that I don't think he deserves", added Meadows.

Comey resisted, arguing the GOP-led investigation in the decision-making by the FBI and the Justice Department in 2016 and 2017 was politically motivated.

Issa suggested the committee might bring Comey back because he wasn't answering questions.

Democrats will also attend the interview.

On Twitter, President Trump decried what he called "total bias and corruption at the highest levels of previous Administration".

"The Department of Justice is going to have to agree to allow him to come back and answer a great many questions that now he is not answering", he said.

Congressman Darrell Issa said he wanted answers about what he called the "fake dossier", a 2016 intelligence report including opposition research that alleges misconduct and ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

When he was asked on his way into the meeting room about Trump's assertion that he is best friends with Mueller, Comey said: "Note that I smiled".

"The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersion on the real investigation, which is Mueller", Nadler told reporters outside Comey's testimony. Two other Republicans, Reps.

Both Goodlatte and Issa are retiring at the end of this session, with Issa having been nominated in September for a post in Trump's Trade and Development Agency.

After the court fight was resolved, Goodlatte said a transcript will be released "as soon as possible after the interview, in the name of our combined desire for transparency".

Comey was the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation until Trump dismissed him on May 9, 2017.
