Attorney General of the United States Jeff Sessions agreed to testify in Senate speaking before the intelligence committee. This was reported by CNN.

"The Senate intelligence committee is the most appropriate forum for such matters, as it has been conducting an investigation and has access to relevant, classified information," he said.

It is not being clarified, however, whether the hearing will be open or closed.

As media reported, Sessions, who is also a part of scandal around "investigation against Russia" as he did not inform about contacts with Russian diplomat during the swearing-in ceremony, offered US President Donald Trump to dismiss him.

Comey repeatedly called Trump liar in sworn statements in Senate on June 8. Trump, in turn, called Comey liar too. Answering the question whether he has audio recordings, which he said he had on Twitter after firing Comey, Trump told he would provide his response in the nearest time.

Come himself expressed hope that these recordings do exist during the testimony on Thursday. 

Beyond that, was reportedly offered $10 million for a book deal this week, as publishers are lining up to get Comey to share all the details of his relationship with President Trump and his investigation of Hillary Clinton, according to FoxNews Insider.
