Officials say Trump may not try to block Comey's testimony

Former FBI Chief James Comey To Testify Week In Russia Probe

Comey is likely to testify about the FBI's investigation into possible connections between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign and whether Trump tried to interfere with the probe.

Alongside the Russian Federation investigation, he was heading a separate probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

"Here's what I worry about: that he'll just focus on his conversations with the president and not answer any other questions because of the investigation".

On Friday morning, Conway suggested that Trump might claim executive privilege in an attempt to prevent Comey from testifying at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing next Thursday, and Spicer kept that thought balloon intact when asked about the possible strategy at a White House press briefing later in the day. The President "has nothing to hide" and hopes the public hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee will put an end to the speculation he was or is the target of an investigation, multiple sources tell People's Pundit Daily.

Enough for a headline, but not much more.

Conway indicated that the President would allow Comey to testify when she said "we'll be watching with the rest of the world when Director Comey testifies", during an interview with ABC News. Reuters reported on Friday that Donald Trump might be considering blocking James Comey's testimony. Given Russia's long-standing desire to cultivate relations with influential USA persons, isn't the American public right to be concerned about Mr. - Mr. Flynn's conduct, his failure to disclose that contact with the Russian ambassador, his attempts to cover it up and what looks like the White House's attempts to sweep this under the rug?

On Wednesday, the president will travel to OH, the official said, where he will push to improve the efficacy of inland waterways, including revamping dams and lock systems that are key to the agriculture industry. "And we can only get that by talking to those directly involved". So I can't comment. "So we need to hear directly from Mr. Comey on these important issues". Unlike Trump's Paris climate deal pullout which will take all the way up till 2020 to unravel, Comey is happening in real time. The panel is investigating alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and whether the president or his associates were involved. Expect stories by the dozen on this young man to be leaked by key White House lackeys envious of his stunning rise. "I have not spoken to counsel yet, I don't know how they're going to respond", Spicer told reporters.

In his letter to Trump, Rosenstein called Comey "an articulate and persuasive speaker". Nunes recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation after he was criticized for being too close to the White House.

Comey: I won't commit to that. The court intervened in Watergate and in Bill Clinton's impeachment on executive-privilege claims, but in both cases there was evidence of actual criminal conduct rather than just speculation.

Just as the Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris accord brought White House strategist Steve Bannon into direct confrontation with Jared and Ivanka, any Russian Federation spill will play into Bannon's hands.

But a court order would really exacerbate the appearance of obstruction here. The last time he testified under oath, the Federal Bureau of Investigation had to scurry to correct it.
