Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are set to meet with special counsel Robert Mueller this week to discuss the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, Politico reports.

Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and the ranking Democrat California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, announced last week that their committee would begin its own investigation into Comey's dismissal and any attempt to influence the FBI under former President Barack Obama's administration.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said last week that "it's a possibility," that Mueller's investigation could affect the committee "as we saw in things like congressional grants of immunity to witnesses who then can't be prosecuted. It's also possible, if congressional testimony outs a cooperating witness who otherwise people don't know is cooperating."

He added, "There are a few areas where it's possible for there to be some conflict and so that's why we've asked for the Department of Justice to set up a deconfliction apparatus of some kind so we can talk to each other."

Whitehouse and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., lead a Judiciary subcommittee that has been conducting its own investigation into the FBI's actions during the Russia probe.

They, along with Grassley and Feinstein, will meet with Mueller to discuss how their investigations can avoid interference, according to Reuters.
