Several news sites are offering a video clip of FBI Director James Comey testifying to congress that he has never been asked to stop an investigation as proof that President Trump never asked for Comey to drop the case against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
The clip may or may not exonerate President Trump. It is interesting nonetheless, as Comey correctly references how serious an attempt to halt an FBI investigation would be. He makes it clear he has never been asked to stop any investigation by any higher authority.
So if President Trump did in fact request Comey to drop the FBI investigation back in February why didn’t Comey come forward and why is he claiming in this testimony that he has never been asked to drop an investigation by a higher authority? Something doesn’t add up…..
Regardless of how this testimony is interpreted it is clear former Director Comey has his own communication problems.
