JUST IN: Comey Will Not Testify That Trump Obstructed Justice


It has been weeks since Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

In the last month, public interest has been focused on the reasons behind Trump’s decision.

The FBI has now decided to escalate the investigation on Russia’s efforts to impact our previous presidential election and having connections with the very people in Trump’s administration.

Comey was scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee today, however, the entire country, including Washington, is just hanging on a baited string waiting for answers. 

According to the dailycaller,

Former FBI Director James Comey will not testify Thursday that President Donald Trump interfered in the investigation of former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, ABC News reports.

Comey will, however, dispute Trump’s assertion that he told the president he was not under investigation three separate times. Trump suggested Comey had given him these assurances in his letter dismissing the former FBI director.

“He is not going to Congress to make accusations about the President’s intent, instead he’s there to share his concerns,” a source familiar with Comey’s thinking told ABC.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller reportedly cleared Comey to testify in the open hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The hearing will likely focus on the circumstances of Comey’s firing, the investigation into any Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 election, and if any White House effort was made to obstruct the FBI inquiry into Flynn.
