We begin with the blockbuster
testimony on Capitol Hill,
the most anticipated hearing
in many years here.
Fired FBI Director James Comey
and his stunning claims.
Comey describes his growing unease
with the President
starting with their first
one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower.
As soon as it was over, Comey got into
his FBI vehicle parked outside,
began taking notes on his laptop.
At February 14th meeting
in the Oval Office,
when they were alone,
Comey claims the President asked
him to back off the investigation
into fired National Security Adviser
saying, “He is a good guy
and has been through a lot...
I hope you can let this go.”
I took it as a direction.
I mean, this is
the President of the United States,
with me alone, saying “I hope this.”
I took it as,
this is what he wants me to do.
