Comey testimony: Why fmr. Federal Bureau of Investigation director was 'compelled' to document Trump dealings


Comey's testimony will also confirm claims President Trump made while firing Comey, that the FBI director told him on several occasions that he was not personally under investigation.

Comey testified that Trump leaned on him to drop an investigation into the president's former national security adviser Michael Flynn regarding his contacts with Russians.

President Trump's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, said in a statement that Trump "is pleased that Mr. Comey has finally publicly confirmed his private reports that the President was not under investigation in any Russian Federation probe" adding that the president "feels completely and totally vindicated".

Warner's opening statement was released just before Comey's testimony to the Senate panel.

There are around 630,000 expatriate Indians in Qatar, which is also the largest supplier of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to India. A CNN report quoted unidentified USA officials briefed on the investigation as saying that Russian hackers were suspected.


Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other top government officials to leave the Oval Office on February 14 before urging Comey to drop the investigation of Flynn.

"The question really is not whether the president has obstructed justice", he said. Trump, he said, "repeatedly told me, 'We need to get that fact out'".

But in Mateja's opinion, Comey will not hold it against the president.

Comey said Trump told him at a one-on-one dinner on January 27, a week after the president took office, that: "I need loyalty".

Comey's first hit came early, when he accused the Trump administration of creating phony behind-the-scenes Federal Bureau of Investigation drama to justify Trump abruptly firing him in May.

Mr Comey told U.S. politicians at a hearing before a Senate panel he was confused by "the shifting explanations" given by the Trump administration for his sacking on May 9th.

Trump planned to watch the hearing with his outside counsel Marc Kasowitz and other advisers in a dining room in the White House, a source familiar with the plan said.

Daniel Richman confirmed to The Associated Press in an email that he was the friend who Comey mentioned in his testimony.

Addressing Comey, Burr said, "Your statement also provides texture and context to your interactions with the President, from your vantage point, and outlines a strained relationship". What those reasons were, we don't know, but we can assume the senators on the Intelligence Committee will ask Comey for additional information in their closed session Thursday afternoon.
