How to watch James Comey's Senate testimony

Irune Rengel | 08 Junio, 2017, 17:29

"Comey explodes the Democrats" narrative that Trump was under criminal investigation for collusion with Russian Federation, and confirms with specificity that Trump was telling the truth when he tweeted that Comey had told him as much on three occasions", he wrote.

In it, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation official - who was leading the probe into Russia's meddling into the 2016 election - wrote that Trump told him "I expect loyalty".

"Obstruction aside, it's NEVER ok for a POTUS privately to ask an FBI Director to drop a criminal investigation", Bharara wrote on Twitter. Comey said the President also asked him to stop investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and publicly declare that Trump was not under investigation. First, Trump repeatedly implored Comey to lift the "cloud" of the Russian Federation investigation hanging over him.

Trump's personal lawyer said Trump was cheered by the testimony.

"He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia", Comey's prepared statement says.

"The president feels completely and totally vindicated", it continued.

Comey then told Trump a third time the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not investigating him during a phone call on March 30. The former director "is now on record saying that the president tried to impede the investigation of Flynn", Goodman said.

"This moves the ball forward, but whether it moves the ball past the finish line will be up for debate", said former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, now a partner at Thompson Coburn.

Democrats are almost united in their suspicions of Trump, with 88 percent saying he fired Comey in May to protect himself and 87 percent saying Trump is trying to interfere with investigations of possible Russian influence in the election. "But blurring those boundaries ultimately makes the problems worse by undermining public trust in the institutions and their work", Comey said in his statement.

Trump called Comey and asked what he "had done about his request that I "get out" that he is not personally under investigation".

He also said he did not keep written memos of his interactions with Mr Obama.

Comey had dinner with Trump in the Green Room at the White House.

Comey quoted Trump as telling him: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

Marc Kasowitz, the outside lawyer representing President Trump and to whom the White House has been referring questions regarding the Russian Federation investigation, released a statement on Wednesday evening hailing Comey's account.

"The president sought to influence and even end an ongoing investigation into serious wrongdoing by Flynn and others", Tribe said on Wednesday.

"Comey has made a career of providing bombshell testimony to Congress, " said Tracy Schmaler, a former Senate Judiciary Committee staffer who attended a 2007 hearing in which Comey captivated the capital with an account of apparent White House interference with Justice Department decision-making.

Comey's statement came hours after two top U.S. spy agency chiefs skirted questions from the Senate panel about whether the president also "asked" them to intervene in the Flynn probe, while saying they never felt pressured to do so. "It would be a normal thing to say 'Leave him alone, he's a good guy, ' and I believe Comey said he is a good guy".

Among the encounters Comey describes is a January 27 dinner at the White House that he viewed as an attempt by the president to "create some sort of patronage relationship".

Comey's early release of his testimony gave Democrats a chance to hone their questions for Thursday, but also flushed out how Republicans will respond. The response, in a word, is heartening.

Trump to nominate Christopher Wray for FBI director
Trump posted the announcement on Twitter , declaring Wray a "man of impeccable credentials" and saying more details would follow. He represented Christie in the Bridgegate political scandal that resulted in two of the governor's aides being convicted.
