Former FBI Director Comey to testify before Senate intel committee

Former FBI Director Comey to testify before Senate intel committee

The United States government officially announced past year that Russian Federation had meddled in the 2016 election.

And The New York Times reported that the president had told Russian officials he felt the dismissal of his Federal Bureau of Investigation director had relieved "great pressure" on him. "That's taken off.I am not under investigation", he was quoted as saying by said the daily.

"The committee looks forward to receiving testimony from the former director on his role in the development of the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 USA elections", Burr said in a statement, "and I am hopeful that he will clarify for the American people recent events that have been broadly reported in the media".

While White House staffers solidified the details of Trump's first foreign trip, sensitive information apparently poured out of the administration like a sieve to major United States news outlets regarding the president's handling of the former FBI director and the ongoing law enforcement investigation into his campaign.

Comey is known to produce memos documenting especially sensitive or unsettling encounters, such as after the February meeting.

In a statement Friday evening, the Republican chairman and top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee said Comey has agreed to publicly testify in front of the panel about his role in the Russian Federation investigation.

The new headlines were a fresh indication that Trump would not be able to change the subject from what appears to be an intensifying investigation reaching toward the president and his inner circle.

In reaction to that report, Spicer said, "As the President has stated before - a thorough investigation will confirm that there was no collusion between the campaign and any foreign entity".

Trump's trip, which also includes stops in Israel, Italy and Belgium next week, has been billed by the administration as a chance to visit places sacred to three of the world's major religions while giving him time to meet with Arab, Israeli and European leaders.

During the meeting - in which Trump allegedly revealed classified information provided by Israel - the president reportedly said Comey's firing a day earlier had had relieved him of "great pressure" over his ties to Russian Federation. "I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".

"By grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia's actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage with Russian Federation", press secretary Sean Spicer said in the statement.

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

An embassy statement said the group had "aggressively provoked Turkish-American citizens" who had gathered to greet Erdogan. The security detail, he continued, violated American laws on United States ground, and that can not happen.

"Once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations", he added.

The Senate and House intelligence committees are also probing possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. The investigation is now in the hands of a special counsel, as well as multiple Congressional committees.

"This was a five-alarm fire from early on.The way the Russians were talking about him", an official of the previous Obama administration said. But he made clear it was not his intention for Trump or other White House officials to use the document to justify firing Comey, which is what they have done.

Burr says the committee wants to hear from Comey on his role in the development of the USA intelligence agencies' assessment that Russian Federation interfered in last year's election. Trump also announced he nominated Callista Gingrich, wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, to be the ambassador to the Vatican.

"I wrote it", Rosenstein said. "I believe it. I stand by it".

The rule restricts newly appointed government officials from investigating clients of prior employers. However, at a combative news conference Thursday, he fell short in trying to resolve questions about investigations into his campaign and his first four months in office.
