Former FBI director James B. Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, a day after he released seven pages of prepared remarks.
Comey discussed President Trump asking him for his loyalty, and asking him to announce publicly that the president was not personally being investigated by the FBI as the bureau looked into possible links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election.
Information revealed in Comey's testimony offered a glimpse into the interactions he had with President leading up to his firing on May 9, and how these interactions compared with Trump's comments on their relationship.
