Former FBI Director James Comey has been asked to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday and one local congressman could have a front-row seat.
U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, sits on the committee. Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said that he may subpoena a memo reportedly written by Comey allegedly giving details of President Donald Trump's request to end an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Chaffetz invited Comey to testify Wednesday morning.
On Tuesday, Jordan told Jessica Wehrman in our Washington Bureau that Congress needed “to get to the bottom” of the allegations against Trump.
"Let’s get the information, let's get the facts and then let's move on from there," he told CNBC. "No one's ever accused me of going easy on my own party. I’ll follow the trail, I'll follow the truth, I'll follow the facts, but let's get those first before we start determining and jumping to conclusions and having all these hypotheticals."
