Though no official date has been set and the final details are still being worked out Comey has however spoken privately with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and received the okay to proceed with his testimony.
All that is left is to work out the parameters for said testimony to ensure there are no legal entanglements as a result of his public testimony.
When the hearings do take place Comey is expected to confirm the bombshell accusations that Donald Trump pressured him to declare his loyalty to him personally and end the FBI's investigation into top Trump aide's tied to Russia.
Comey is unlikely to reveal any details in the FBI's investigation into the charges of possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign but is reportedly eager to confirm his now infamous interactions with Trump that emerged in the media before his firing.
It is this behavior with Comey, coupled with Trump's requests to senior intelligence officials that they state publicly they had seen no evidence of Trump campaign collusion with Russia, that some believe amounts to obstruction of justice.
After his public testimony Comey will likely be formally interviewed by Muller in his capacity as a special counsel for the investigation into the links and/or coordination between the Russian government, Donald Trump and individuals associated with Trump's campaign.
