After Saying No To A Private Meeting, James Comey Said He’ll Testify – In Public

After Saying No To A Private Meeting, James Comey Said Hell Testify In Public

James Comey is willing to testify before Congress about his sudden firing from his post, but only if the testimony is done in public.

On Friday, Comey “declined” an invitation to appear in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee behind closed doors.

Comey’s willingness to speak publicly came after President Donald Trump tweeted a message to Comey that some saw as a warning or a veiled threat:

“James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” the President wrote.

When asked if the President recorded his conversations – which, by the way, is something any president can do – Press Secretary Sean Spicer would only say “The president has nothing further to add on that.” When asked if it was a threat, Spicer said “He simply stated a fact. The tweet speaks for itself. I’m moving on.”

When asked specifically why Comey was fired, Trump said that it was incompetence.

“He was not doing a good job,” Trump said Wednesday when asked why he fired Comey. “Very simply, he was not doing a good job.”

If he testifies, Comey is likely to face questions from the committee about both the Russia probe and the timing of his unexpected removal from the office.

Being constantly harassed by the media over the different stories coming from Trump himself and his spokespeople, Trump said the public – and the press – shouldn’t expect “perfect accuracy.”
