The special counsel overseeing the government's investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation has approved former FBI director James Comey to testify before a Senate committee pursuing the same matter, a Comey associate said Wednesday. He could appear on Capitol Hill as soon as next week.

The TV network credited an unidentified source, which has not been confirmed by Global News, adding that Comey's Senate Intelligence Committee testimony could come as early as next week.

Following Trump's firing of Comey, reports have surfaced about the president allegedly asking the former FBI Director to drop the ongoing Flynn investigation and asking him for a pledge of loyalty. When reporters pointed out that a story tweeted out by Mr. Trump today used anonymous sources to bolster his own Russian Federation response, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was having none of it. "He is a good guy".

Trump has said he could make a "fast decision" on replacing James B. Comey as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - although so far, the process has been anything but.

Flynn, a former military intelligence chief, had been forced out of his White House job the day before Trump's meeting with Comey over concerns about his contacts with Russian officials. President Bill Clintons dalliance with an intern, which precipitated impeachment proceedings, occurred 15 months after the 1994 appointment of Kenneth Starr as independent counsel to investigate financial transactions that took place during Clintons days in Arkansas years before. "The Committee welcomes the testimony of former Director Comey, but does not have an announcement to make at this time", Rebecca Glover, Burr's spokesperson, told CBS News.

The White House has denied Comey's account of the February meeting.

The committee, which oversees the FBI investigation, has called on the bureau to hand over Comey's memos regarding the matter but to no avail this far.
