Former FBI head James Comey to testify against Trump

The former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the US, James Comey says President Donald Trump had demanded that he show him support and stop investigating the then national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Comey is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee today on Russia’s alleged interference in the U.S elections last year if there are any potential ties to Trump’s campaign.

The Midday Report host Stephen Grootes spoke to US foreign policy expert, Brookes Spector.

Although James Comey is speaking at 10:00amAM, the president is speaking at 12:30pm. You can only assume that between 10:00 and 12:30 pm, there will be tweets like you haven’t seen for quite a while.

Trump fired Comey last month amid the agency’s ongoing probe into alleged Russian meddling into the US election.

He says he will be nominating Christopher Wray, who he described as a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI.
