Comey Testifies About Trump Meetings

Fired FBI Director James Comey has delivered a prepared statement to Congress this week.

The statement described the six meetings Comey had with the president, some of which are considered quite unusual by analysts.

During one meeting with Trump, Comey testified, he shared with the president sensitive information of a salacious nature that had been gathered as part of the FBI's Russia investigation. At another meeting Trump asked everyone to leave except Comey and then spoke about "letting Flynn go."

Trump several times referred to "a cloud" being over the White House because of the Russia investigation, according to Comey, who also related that Trump told him "had not been involved with hookers in Russia," among other references.

Trump's attorney issued a statement that he felt vindicated because Comey had said Trump himself was not under investigation.
