Comey believes Trump tried to influence handling of investigation, report claims

Ousted FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify in an "open session" of the Senate Intelligence Committee to answer questions on the investigation into possible links between President Donald Trump's election campaign and Russian Federation. The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director agreed to testify before the Senate intelligence committee after the Memorial Day holiday.

"[Comey] didn't give him 100% loyalty, and he demands that of people who work with him", the 86-year-old father said.

Comey wrote memos describing attempts by the president to kill his investigation into ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to several media reports.

Earlier on Friday, the New York Times reported Trump told top Russian officials Comey was a "nut job" and his dismissal relieved "great pressure". "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said, according to what the Times described as a White House document.

Even as they acknowledged that they had seen no evidence of Trump-Russia "collusion", Comey's firing and his alleged spilling of secrets sent his critics salivating with several Democrats using the "I" word - Impeachment.

The 22-year-old has established himself as the first choice right-back under Arsene Wenger after breaking into the first team during the 2014/15 season.

The White House initially attributed the firing to Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, while Democrats and the press suspected an effort to disrupt the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

Comey's view of Trump's intent in their conversations is nuanced, sources say.

The White House has repeatedly insisted that a "thorough investigation will confirm that there was no collusion between the campaign and any foreign entity". One day before the meeting, Trump fired James Comey.

His mouthpiece Sean Spicer did not dispute the story, but suggested Comey's "grandstanding and politicising" Russian probe had "created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia".

The ex-FBI chief has not spoken publicly since his surprise firing last week.

CNN reported on Saturday that, according to a source, Comey believes that Trump tried to sway his judgment regarding the Russian Federation probe, however, even if this assertion came through in his testimony, it's not clear whether such influence would amount to obstruction of justice, as the burden of proof is quite high.
