Comey testimony

The top republican and democratic members of the Senate intelligence committee believe former FBI director James Comey told the truth under oath yesterday.

Comey testified that he interpreted remarks from Donald Trump in a private meeting as a directive to shut down the bureau’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s connections with Russia. Trump’s lawyer says the President made no such suggestion.

Comey also testified he considered it very serious that the Russian Government was interfering in the presidential election.
