Former FBI Directo James Comey agrees to testify before Senate intelligence committee


The committee is one of several on Capitol Hill investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. On Jan. 26, former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told McGahn, who had transitioned into role of White House Counsel, that the DOJ possessed evidence that Flynn had not been forthcoming to Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russian officials.

Trump kept Flynn in the administration long after the White House had been alerted to his ethics issues. "I also expect that Director Comey will be able to shed light on issues critical to this Committee's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election".

Last month, the top Democratic and Republican members of the House Oversight Committee announced that Trump's failure to disclose the payments he received from foreign governments likely constituted a violation of USA law.

Pelosi tells The Associated Press in an interview Friday that "every day the president gives us more reason to believe that he does not respect the office that he holds".

That flies in the face of the White House's public insistence that Mr Comey's dismissal was not linked to his ongoing investigation.

That report followed another bombshell claim by the paper, which on Tuesday said that following Flynn's dismissal after just 24 days on the job, Trump personally pressed former FBI director James Comey to halt any FBI investigation.

Trott says Rosenstein answered that he didn't want to interfere with the independent investigation that will now be run by former FBI chief Robert Mueller.

"He likes him, he trusted him, he was comfortable with him", Leeden said.

The Senate is investigating the "active measures" Russian Federation took to influence the election.
