Comey prepped answers ahead of Trump talks

Francis Olson | 19 May, 2017, 23:08

Subsequent reports by the New York Times revealed that Trump had pressured Comey for loyalty and asked him to curtail the FBI's investigation. "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president and that means before rushing to judgment we (must) get all the pertinent information", Efe news agency quoted Paul Ryan as saying on Wednesday.

Ryan said that Congress will call James Comey to testify after the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief was sacked by Trump last week.

After the latest flurry of allegations against President Trump, his administration, and his 2016 campaign, it is clear that we have a long way to go before we know whether there was in fact collusion during the 2016 election between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives.

In a scheduled press conference following a meeting of congressional Republicans on Capitol Hill, the speaker of the House of Representatives said:"Our response is to be responsible, sober and to focus only on getting the facts. That is what Congress does in conducting oversight of the executive branch".

Rosenstein told senators that he knew Comey would be fired before he wrote his letter, Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill said . Graham noted that the creation of the special counsel by Rosenstein will likely impede the congressional investigations.

Comey also kept memos from his phone conversations with Trump on at least two separate occasions, a source told CNN.

Comey reportedly created the trail to document what he saw as Trump's improper influence on the investigation.

Lawmakers of both parties are demanding that Mr Comey testify before them in public, though the time and place haven't been determined.

Lynch, a member of the House Oversight Committee, noted that Comey had been invited to testify at a hearing next week, so that members of Congress could question the former FBI director about the Russian Federation investigation and the circumstances surrounding his own firing.
