Jonathan Karl notes though that the final decision rests with President Trump and there is no telling what he will decide.
ABC News’ Jonathan Karl is reporting that sources inside the Trump Administration are saying they will not try to prevent former FBI Director James Comey from testifying to Congress.
Former FBI Director Comey is scheduled to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, and there has been speculation that President Trump might invoke executive privilege to prevent Comey from testifying.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Karl about this speculation.
“I’ve talked to several of the president’s top aides who say there is no plan to do that. They believe that it would be a tough case to make legally and politically, it will be a disaster,” Karl reported.
Karl concluded, “That said, George there’s no telling if the President himself will decide he wants to make that fight later on. But, right now, the opinion inside the West Wing is that Comey will testify and they will not try to stop it.”
