"I think Jim Comey has done the right thing here", Figliuzzi said. "So will sit in the dark, but Republicans agree I'm free to talk when done and transcript released in 24 hours", Comey tweeted.
McFadden asked whether Comey could release a transcript of his testimony to get the full picture before the public.
In a tweet Thursday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, called Comey's lawsuit "baseless".
Comey is expected to be questioned about decisions made by the FBI in 2016, including a call not to recommend criminal charges against Democrat Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server and the FBI's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and Republican Donald Trump's campaign. Comey had been attempting to make the hearing a public one, but agreed to testify in a private setting provided the transcript be released afterward.
"Mr. Comey will join us for a closed-door transcribed interview later this week", the statement said.
Moscow denies meddling and Trump denies campaign collusion, calling the Mueller investigation a political witch hunt.
Comey and the Republican lawmakers reached the new agreement the day before lawyers were to appear at a court hearing. He dropped his legal fight against the subpoena on Sunday, compelling him to testify behind closed doors.
An internal report released in July stated that Comey deviated from norms of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice in handling the Clinton probe but his actions were not driven by political bias to help either side. "The Committee intends to issue a joint report (together with [the House Oversight Committee]) before the end of the 115th Congress - i.e., in a few short weeks", lawyers for the House Judiciary Committee wrote in a court filing Friday.
Early on Sunday, two days after Comey's attorney conceded in court that no federal trial judge had ever batted down a House subpoena, the former Federal Bureau of Investigations chief - who was sacked by President Donald Trump in 2017 - withdrew his request.
House Republicans have also subpoenaed former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify about whether her conversations with former President Bill Clinton on a Phoenix tarmac influenced the Clinton investigation.
