Ex-FBI Director James Comey has arrived for a hearing before lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Comey reached a deal to testify privately to the House Judiciary Committee, backing off his legal fight for an open hearing.
He said Republicans, who lead the committee, told him he's free to speak afterward and that a transcript would be released a day later.
Comey's lawyers went to court last Friday to challenge a subpoena that would require him to answer questions about the FBI and decisions made during the 2016 presidential election.
Comey had been pushing for a public hearing.
His lawyer said an "accommodation" had been reached and that more details would be available later.
