As Mueller investigation heats up, Trump unleashes barrage of tweets attacking investigators

But he will appear for the closed-door testimony after Goodlatte agreed that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation head's remarks would be made public in their entirety and Comey is allowed to discuss the hearing publicly.

Comey said he might answer questions after the interview, which is expected to last much of the day.

President Trump blamed the special counsel investigation and "Presidential Harassment" for dragging down his approval rating on Thursday. But he says it won't be complete until Mueller issues his report.

Many of Trump's tweets attempted to preemptively undermine the report. They have also urged their Republican counterparts to shield Mueller from any attempts by Trump or his newly-appointed acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, to impede the investigation.

Mueller's team is also expected to file a memo Friday with recommendations for sentencing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who recently pleaded guilty to lying to Congress.

The court filings will close out a busy week for Mueller as the president has heightened his attacks on the investigation.
