The fallout from the firing of former FBI director James Comey has escalated in such a short period of time. With a federal investigation still surrounding President Trump’s ties to Russia, Comey is ready to publicly testify before the Senate Intel Committee after Memorial Day.
Multiple sources have reported the former Director has “committed to testifying,” and will do so in front of the public.
“I hope that former Director Comey’s testimony will help answer some of the questions that have arisen since Director Comey was so suddenly dismissed by the President,” said Senator Mark Warren, Vice President of the Senate Intel Committee, in the press release. “I also expect that Director Comey will be able to shed light on critical issues to this Committee’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.”
Comey’s testimony has the potential to blow the lid off the Trump administration, plus it gives Comey the opportunity to address the things Trump has said about him since firing him.
