Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican and the panel chairman, announced Mr. Comey’s date in an appearance Wednesday night on Fox News Channel.
“Comey has agreed to testify to our committee” on Sept. 30, Mr. Graham told host Sean Hannity.
Mr. Graham and Mr. Comey have publicly sparred via press releases, social media and interviews with third parties for months over the FBI’s investigation of the Donald Trump campaign and its supposed collusion with Russia.
Other high-profile witnesses whom Mr. Graham have sought in his probe of the “Crossfire Hurricane” operation have resisted coming before the Judiciary Committee — former special counsel Robert Mueller has refused and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is still negotiating a date and conditions.
