James Comey has been in the spotlight for the past several weeks after he was fired and now he has just thrown himself back into the spotlight again.
James Comey has agreed to testify on the Russia investigation!
There was an enormous amount of speculation on whether or not he was going to testify after he was fired, with the Democrats playing his firing up way bigger than it really was.
President Trump has said time and time again that he didn’t work with Russia and there has yet to be any evidence that he did collude with Russia.
But now Comey has agreed to testify after the Democrats were able to get a special counsel in Comey’s old friend former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Burr says the committee wants to hear from Comey on his role in the development of the U.S. intelligence agencies’ assessment that Russia interfered in last year’s election.
He says he hopes Comey’s testimony will answer some of the questions that have arisen since Comey was suddenly dismissed last week by President Donald Trump.
This news after reports Friday in the New York Times and the Washington Post about the fallout from Trump’s firing of Comey, as well as the inquiry into Russia’s role in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
If anything, Comey testifying will clear the air about why Trump fired him. The Democrats have been blowing up the issue in something way bigger even though they were the ones calling for Obama to fire him during the election.
The Democrats think they won by getting Comey to testify but when he can’t show that there was anything wrong with his firing the Democrats cries and whines will be shown to be just as fake as all of their claims!
