Democrats are anxiously awaiting having fired FBI Director James Comey testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, hoping that he will provide testimony that will help them remove Trump from office. However, sources close to Comey are saying that he will not testify that Trump tried to obstruct justice in ordering Comey to stop the investigation into collusion between Trump and the Russians.
Former FBI Director James Comey won’t testify that President Trump obstructed justice in the FBI’s investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to a new report.
A source familiar with Comey’s thinking on the matter told ABC News that Comey will not say Trump interfered with the FBI’s investigation, but will dispute Trump’s assertion that the former FBI director told me three times that he is not under investigation.
“He is not going to Congress to make accusations about the President’s intent, instead he’s there to share his concerns,” the source told ABC News…
Trump, like most politicians continues to claim innocence and wants to prove his innocence but allowing Comey to testify to the truth and help exonerate him. Trump could have done what Obama did to protect himself by using executive privilege to obstruct justice, but then Trump says he has nothing to hide, unlike Obama did.
