Comey in the hot seat
WASHINGTON: Former FBI chief James Comey could hold back from accusing US President Donald Trump of trying to interfere with an investigation into links between Trump’s election campaign team and Russian officials when he testifies in Congress, legal sources say.
Comey’s appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee today could be a turning point in a controversy that has rocked Trump’s young administration.
Comey is expected to tell the committee that Trump asked him to end the FBI’s probe into ties between former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russia. Reuters
