According to a source, before President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, he already told the lawmakers that he asks for more resources.
It was for FBI’s probe into the conspiracy between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia to control the 2016 U.S. election.
Upon firing Comey, Trump might have set in motion a sequence of events that may lead to controversy and probably, his impeachment within less than a year after being inaugurated.
Trump’s administration indicted Comey of “atrocities” and denied his firing was about the FBI’s Russia investigation.
Senator Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, interrogated Comey during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
BLUMENTHAL: So potentially, the President of the United States could be a target of your ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s involvement with Russian interference in our election, correct?
COMEY: I just worry — I don’t want to answer that — that — that seems to be unfair speculation. We will follow the evidence, we’ll try and find as much as we can and we’ll follow the evidence wherever it leads.
The answer of Comey was obviously not the answer that President Trump was expecting.
President Donald Trump was maybe expecting Comey to answer directly,
“President Trump is not under investigation.”
