Rep. Jordan: Congress needs 'to get to the bottom' of allegations against Trump

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.
