Comey is expected to focus his testimony on a private Feb. 14 Oval Office meeting with Donald Trump. Last month, the New York Times reported Trump asked Comey during that meeting to drop the FBI's investigation into his former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.
According to people familiar with a memo Comey wrote shortly after that meeting, the president told Comey, "I hope you can let this go."
Trump dismissed Comey on May 9.
