Comey To Testify That Trump Pressured Him

Fired FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify in public before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week after having been "cleared for takeoff" by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a source close to Comey told NBC News.

The Associated Press reported earlier this month that Comey planned to testify before the Senate committee after Memorial Day, but the approval from Mueller to do so could indicate that date is fast approaching.

However, the New York Times reported that during one of their interactions, the President asked Mr Comey to end its investigation into Mr Flynn, according to a memo reportedly written by Mr Comey.

A week after Comey was sacked, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was in charge of the Russia investigation, appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller to "oversee the previously-confirmed FBI investigation of Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and related matters". That appears less likely now that Mueller and Comey have discussed the limits of his testimony.

President Trump will meet Tuesday afternoon with two additional candidates who could potentially replace former FBI Director James Comey.

Comey reportedly wrote detailed memos about his conversations with President Trump.

So often in recent weeks, the words "obstruction of justice" have been spoken on cable news, and there have been discussions about whether or not President Donald Trump committed the act. Mueller and Comey privately met to discuss what the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director could legally divulge during his testimony.

The President said Mr Comey informed him three times that he personally was not under investigation.

Five key duels to look out for in Champions League final
As they did in 2015, when they lost in the final to Barcelona in Berlin, they have an opportunity to win their first treble. It is perfectly balanced, with the best defence in Europe, a lethal attack and capable of playing different styles.

A risky argument is now being put forward by some Democratic ideologues: namely that President Trump should be indicted for the crime of obstructing justice because he fired FBI Director James Comey. Richard Burr, R-N.C., said the committee welcomes Comey's testimony, but declined to comment further. "He's happy to testify, and he's happy to cooperate".

On Wednesday, a White House spokesman said all future questions regarding the Russian Federation matter would be handled by Trump's personal attorney.

It was then revealed that Trump allegedly told the Russian foreign minister and ambassador that Comey was a "real nut job" and his firing took pressure off him in regards to the Russia investigation.
