Comey was in charge of both of those investigations.
Republicans will also focus on alleged political bias by Obama-era Federal Bureau of Investigation officials and potential FISA court abuses.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, called former FBI Director James Comey's closed-door testimony before Congress on Friday a "waste of time" meant only to give Republicans a chance to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
Meanwhile, President Trump took to Twitter Friday morning to slam Comey ahead of his hearing.
"Without the phony Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last nearly two years (Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judge's, Military, Vets, etc.) my approval rating would be at 75% rather than the 50% just reported by Rasmussen", Trump wrote in his tweet. They said questions from the judiciary committee Republicans were merely distractions from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.
Comey is speaking with lawmakers behind closed doors Friday after reaching a compromise with House Republicans who subpoenaed him to testify about his recommendation in July 2016 not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for using a private email server to conduct official government business.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) appeared to be most frustrated, explaining to the press that Comey came with two attorneys, one of whom has instructed his client to answer very few questions. "But I will resist a "closed door" thing because I've seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion".
After the court fight was resolved, Goodlatte said a transcript will be released "as soon as possible after the interview, in the name of our combined desire for transparency".
The interview comes as GOP lawmakers wrap up a yearlong investigation into decisions made at the Justice Department during the 2016 presidential election.
