You can take James Comey‘s job, but you can’t take his dignity!
That’s what Donald Trump will learn next week as the former FBI director plans to confirm that the President pressured him to end the investigation into Russia’s ties with a top Trump aide.
According to a CNN source, Comey is expected to publicly testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russia during the election, as early as next week.
The former FBI head has already privately spoken with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to finalize the details of his testimony to make sure no other confidential beans get spilled as a result of his public account.
This means while Comey will be dishing on his conversations where POTUS allegedly urged him to close the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, he likely won’t be discussing the FBI’s ongoing investigation into Russia potentially meddling with the election.
Well… one orange brick at a time!
As you may remember, Trump abruptly fired Comey earlier this month, and later denied he ever pressured the former director to close the investigation into possible collusion.
But a week later, Trump wrote a rather threatening message to Comey on Twitter, saying he hoped the fired official didn’t have any “tapes” of their conversations before he went to the press.
Though it’s unclear whether or not Comey has any actual recordings to back up his account, CNN reports that the former director “appears eager to discuss his tense interactions with Trump before his firing.”
No official date for Comey’s testimony is set yet, but we’re already picturing him walking up to Trump all like:
It’s game time, y’all!!!
