On Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey will testify before a Senate Committee regarding his interactions with President Trump. In preparation for his testimony, Mr. Comey has released a detailed statement describing the meetings he had with the president.
In the document, Mr. Comey does verify that he told President Trump that he was not under investigation, but declined to make a public statement in the event that, should things change, there would be a duty to correct the record publicly.
Among other things, the statement includes a reference to the Russian prostitute scandal, the discussion involving disgraced National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Trump’s request for a loyalty pledge, and Comey’s discomfort with being left alone with the president.
Comey lists the meetings with the president one by one, and the attention to detail in the statement is an indication of his careful note-taking.
It is interesting that Comey mentions two meetings with President Obama, saying that on neither occasion did he feel compelled to memorialize those meetings on paper.
It’s about a five minute read and gives a tantalizing preview of the hearing that will take place in the Senate tomorrow.
