James Comey was one of the countless former Obama administration officials who received subpoenas from Senate Republicans.
Comey has agreed to testify and will do so in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
According to The Daily Wire:
As Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team eventually concluded, the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia, and a subsequent Inspector General report found that the FBI omitted evidence that would have called into question the years long investigation into the Trump administration as part of “Crossfire Hurricane.” Following the IG report, Senate Republicans and U.S. Attorney General William Barr launched separate investigations into the origins of the false collusion narrative.
As part of the Senate’s investigation, ex-FBI Director James Comey will testify on September 30. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday night that Comey had agreed to testify, while Mueller said he didn’t have enough time.
“The day of reckoning is upon us when it comes to Crossfire Hurricane,” Graham said.
The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reported that the committee would also interview the two FBI employees who spoke with the primary source for Christopher Steele’s dossier, which was used as the basis for the investigation into the Trump campaign. The primary source, Russia analyst Igor Danchenko, informed the FBI and the Justice Department in January 2017 that Steele embellished parts of his dossier, but the FBI didn’t include this information when applying for a FISA warrant to surveil Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
An IG report found many inaccuracies with the FISA applications for Carter Page and a former FBI lawyer has pleaded guilty to falsifying an email that removed pertinent information which disclosed that the CIA did in fact tell the FBI that Page worked for the agency.
