Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief the full Senate next week amid controversy over President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's office confirmed Friday that Rosenstein had accepted the invitation extended by Schumer and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The time and date are not yet finalized.

Rosenstein wrote a memo critical of Comey that the White House initially cited as justification for Trump's firing of Comey. But the story subsequently changed as Trump said he would have fired Comey anyway.

Senators have many questions for Rosenstein, and his responses may help determine how the still-developing controversy plays out.
