Fired FBI Director James Comey will testify before a Senate committee this morning and his opening statement has already been released. In it, Comey says he told the President that the FBI was working as quickly as possible to conclude the investigation of Russian meddling in the presidential election.
Comey confirms that he told the President that the FBI was "not personally investigating" him". At a dinner meeting, Comey says Trump asked for his loyalty and said he “needs and expects loyalty.” Comey pledged his honesty and Trump called it "honest loyalty." Comey says he went along with that assessment.
Trump's lawyer Marc Kasowitz says the President is "pleased" that Comey confirmed that the President was not under investigation as part of the Russia probe. He says the President is eager to move forward with his agenda.
The NSA Director Mike Rogers testified before Congress yesterday and also cleared Trump "In the three-plus years that I have been director of the National Security Agency, I have never been directed to do anything I believe to be illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate and to the best of my recollection during that same period of service I do not recall ever feeling pressured to do so."
