The former FBI director told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he was never instructed to stop the FBI’s investigation.
Former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday that President Trump never instructed him to stop the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) asked Comey if President Trump asked him, at any time, to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. election.
“Not to my understanding, no,” Comey responded.
Burr followed up by asking Comey if any individual working for the Trump administration, including the Justice Department, had asked him to stop this investigation.
Comey again responded in the negative.
