On May 9th, President Donald Trump fired James Comey. The letter accompanying this decision informed the former FBI director that Trump received three assurances from him that he was not under investigation. Nonetheless, federal agents were already pursuing an inquiry on Trump presidential campaign and his ties with Russian government. Since his departure as a federal employee, Comey kept silence. However, he was summoned to testify on Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee about what really happened.

His appearance in front of this official committee might trigger some compelling allegations. There might be put into the discussion a potential espionage, treason or obstruction of justice.
The Senate Intelligence Committee was created to focus on Russian influence in the 2016 U.S. election fully.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California stated that officials are going to ask Comey directly about his dialogues with the president and his pressures on Comey for eliminating General Flynn from his position.
Comey Did Investigate Trump Presidential Campaign

However, the letter that announced Comey’s resignation alluded to three occasions when Comey assured Trump that he was present in no FBI investigation.
On the other hand, Comey delivered a testimony in front of the Congress on March 20th. With this occasion, the former FBI director declared that his agency was searching any evidence that associate Trump campaign with Russian officials. He also stated that there was no evidence to attest Trump’s allegations of former President Barack Obama had his phone tapped during his campaign.
