WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Intelligence Committee has invited former FBI Director James Comey to testify behind closed doors next week as the panel reviews a 2017 classified assessment that Russia had intervened in the presidential election.
The January 2017 review found that Russia had interfered in the election months earlier to hurt the candidacy of Democrat Hillary Clinton and to help Donald Trump.
The Senate panel is dissecting the assessment as part of its investigation into the Russian meddling and whether it was in any way connected to Trump's campaign.
Comey has not yet accepted the invitation. Also testifying at the hearing will be former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and former National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers.
