Former FBI Director James Comey’s blockbuster testimony before a Senate panel Thursday has the potential to both arm President Trump’s critics with new evidence he sought to thwart a federal investigation of his associates – and bolster his defenders’ claims that he did not cross a legal line.
One thing is virtually certain: Comey’s testimony won’t end the raging Russia controversy.
The fired FBI boss is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee starting at 10 a.m. ET. Ahead of the highly anticipated appearance, the Senate panel released his seven-page opening statement that at times read more like a steamy summer novel than congressional record.
The written statement is packed with salacious political tidbits covering private White House meetings and Trump’s alleged pursuit of a “loyalty” oath from Comey.
At the same time, a source close to Comey told Fox News he will not reach any legal conclusion about whether Trump engaged in “obstruction of justice.”
Hear live coverage of Comey's testimony via Fox News Radio on NEWSRADIO WOOD 1300 and 106.9 FM beginning at 10am.
