Robert Mueller Might Indict Trump

Trump's Former Adviser Michael Flynn To Be Sentenced For Lying To FBI

Trump's Former Adviser Michael Flynn To Be Sentenced For Lying To FBI

Former FBI Director James Comey today accused US President Donald Trump of trying "to burn down the entire FBI" and charged that congressional Republicans were willing accomplices for failing to challenge him.

Comey's comments came just moments after he faced a second grilling from Republican legislators over his role in Hillary Clinton's botched email investigation and the 2016 presidential election. "How does this make any sense at all?" he asked.

On Monday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team filed the 302 forms from former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in January 2017 after being ordered to produce "any 302s or memoranda relevant" to Flynn's case by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan.

"Somebody has to stand up and speak for the FBI", Comey told reporters after his almost six-hour interview with members of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, adding that he thought Republican "silence is shameful".

According to the transcript of his earlier appearance, Comey did not respond to some questions related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Comey said that President Donald Trump pressured him to drop the FBI's investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and demanded Comey's loyalty during the one-on-one meetings he had with president.

In that scenario, it's not the worst idea in the world to have a 6-foot-7 juggernaut out there to knock down a desperation throw. Drake started to run and then looked to make a pitch himself before realizing he had some blocking down field and few defenders.

Comey said "at some point someone has to. stand up for the values of this country and not slink away in retirement, but stand up and speak the truth".

"Well, last week in Federal District Court in New York City, a federal judge at the end of [former Trump attorney] Michael Cohen's sentencing said, 'The president orchestrated and paid for this crime, ' the crime to which-he was referring to one of the nine-to which Michael Cohen had pleaded guilty".

Asked about the president calling Cohen a "rat", Comey said it undermined the rule of law.

The joint panel is also expected to interview Lynch behind closed doors on Thursday. But I think what he said to Chris Wallace yesterday was not aimed at the public, it was aimed to Bob Mueller.

They also said that then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had told Flynn that the "quickest way" to conduct the interview was without counsel present.
