Expect two diverging stories to emerge after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's interview, Comey's lawyer suggested in an interview on MSNBC - one from Comey's camp, another from House Republicans.
"It is being reported that Leakin' James Comey was told by Department of Justice attorneys not to answer the most important questions", Trump tweeted.
The committee subpoenaed Comey last month to testify about investigations into the Donald Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation and Hillary Clinton's emails.
Speaking to reporters, Comey said he's willing to continue testifying, even as he suggested he didn't think it was necessary.
Former FBI Director James Comey said he will return for more questioning on Capitol Hill later this month, as President Trump ripped into him for apparently declining to answer certain questions on the advice of his attorneys during Friday's closed-door session.
Comey had fought the congressional subpoena in court, pushing for a public hearing before settling for some concessions.
Comey had originally demanded that any interview before the joint panel of House Judiciary Committee and Oversight and Government Reform Committee members be conducted in public to avoid selective leaks.
House Republicans will grill Comey behind closed doors Friday about his role in investigating alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.
"That's a very teeny part of what we talked about - a whole lot of Hillary Clinton emails, which will bore you", he said.
Gowdy and House Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte threw cold water on that proposal, arguing that previous public hearings with witnesses, like one with former Federal Bureau of Investigation counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok this past summer, were a political farce as members from both parties used the high-profile nature of the interview to grandstand.
The U.S. president early Friday continued his social media assault on the actions the past two years of Comey, Mueller and what Trump perceives as unfair investigations.
After the questioning was underway, some Republicans signaled they were unhappy with Comey's level of cooperation.
"You're going to be displeased and maybe a little surprised by the answers", Issa said on Fox News following the Capitol Hill press gaggle.
Walking into the meeting, Comey said he might answer questions in public after the session.
A transcript will be released "as soon as possible after the interview, in the name of our combined desire for transparency", Goodlatte said. But it also found there was no evidence that Comey's or the department's final conclusions were motivated by political bias toward either candidate.
