Former FBI Director James Comey will not testify in an open session of the Senate Intelligence Committee that was scheduled for Thursday.

“Comey was terminated last night,” the panel’s chair Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) told reporters on Wednesday. “The chair will be filled by the acting director of the FBI.”

Andrew G. McCabe became acting director of the bureau after President Donald Trump abruptly terminated Comey on Tuesday, a development Burr said “troubled” him.
