James Comey agrees to testify in open Senate hearing
25 May, 2017, 08:18
A friend and longtime confidant of ousted FBI Director James Comey has gone on the record saying that Comey spoke to him after multiple run-ins with President Donald Trump that left Comey "unsettled" and concerned that the president was attempting to do an end run around the law.
Trump has denied he asked Comey to do that, though Comey wrote a memo after their encounter memorializing Trump's words to that effect ("I hope you can let this go"), according to sources close to the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "Zero", Trump said Thursday during a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.
"Moreover, the American people deserve an opportunity to hear it", Warner concluded.
Mr. Comey, who was abruptly fired last week by President Trump, has become the focus of allegations that the president was interfering in the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of collusion with Russian Federation.
Trump blasted that decision, echoing his Thursday morning tweets and comments he made over lunch with network news anchors that the Russian Federation investigation is a "witch hunt" that "divides the country". "I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".
"There is no collusion between, certainly myself and my campaign, but I can only speak for myself and the Russians".
The Timesreport on Friday afternoon is just the latest bombshell story over the past week and adds to mounting headaches for the White House just as Trump has departed for his first foreign trip as president.
"The Committee looks forward to receiving testimony from the former Director on his role in the development of the Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, and I am hopeful that he will clarify for the American people recent events that have been broadly reported in the media", Republican Richard Burr of the North Carolina said. That was the White House's position initially after the deputy attorney general argued in a memo that Comey had erred in handling the FBI's investigation into Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server, even though Trump had praised Comey on the campaign trail past year.
In the remarks, Rosenstein said he learned a day before Comey's firing that Trump wanted to dismiss him. Joe Lieberman was among the finalists.
