READ: House Intelligence Committee Releases James Comey's Interview Transcript

The chairmen of the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees on Saturday released former FBI Director James Comey's interview transcript. The interview in question took place on Friday. 

Comey was subpoenaed to appear before the committees. They wanted to hear his testimony in relation to the probe into Hillary Clinton's email scandal and how he handled the beginning of the Russia probe. 

Although Comey initially battled with the interview, he agreed to sit down with legislators under one condition: that transcripts of the conversation were made public within 24 hours. 

Comey is scheduled to make another appearance on Capitol Hill on Dec. 17 to continue his interview.

Republicans are putting together a report detailing their findings on the FBI's investigations into Clinton's email scandal and the Russia probe. They're attempting to get this done before Democrats take control of the House at the beginning of the year.
