Trump Refuses to Invoke Executive Privilege on Comey

Updated on

Fired FBI Director James Comey will publicly describe conversations with Donald Trump but stop short of saying if he thinks the president sought to obstruct a federal probe of Russia’s role in the 2016 election, according to a person familiar with Comey’s thinking.

Comey will describe in detail many of his interactions with Trump during a closely watched Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Thursday, according to the person. He has already coordinated his testimony with Robert Mueller, another former FBI chief who’s now special counsel in charge of the Russian investigations, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity in advance of the hearing.
