Senate to hear from Comey; Dems raise new Sessions questions

The next day, former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by President Donald Trump last month, is scheduled to testify before the same committee.

Former FBI Director James Comey will testify before a Senate committee next Thursday as part of a probe into alleged Russian meddling in the United States of America presidential election and possible collusion with President Donald Trump's campaign.

"The big story is the 'unmasking and surveillance" of people that took place during the Obama Administration, ' Trump said in a tweet, one day after the committee's Republican chairman subpoenaed the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency.

Allegations that Russian Federation may have helped Trump win the 2016 presidential election and questions about possible collusion by members of his campaign are being investigated by several US congressional committees as well as by the Justice Department.

Rihanna steals the spotlight from Cavs, Warriors during NBA Finals
In fairness to Van Gundy, Rihanna might have legitimately obstructed his view given that she had a courtside seat. The first quarter of Game 1 of the NBA Finals featured a frenetic pace and plenty of highlight-reel plays .

However, Comey's testimony should prove to be a "clarifying moment", because "it's more important to have somebody testify under oath, frankly, than to have his friends and his former colleagues out there speaking to the media, not under oath".

Trump, however, has said he made a decision to fire Comey before Rosenstein wrote a memo about him, and Conway conceded that Trump had been considering that for a while. Mr. Comey is expected to be asked about several conversations he had with the president, including one in which he says Mr. Trump encouraged him to stop investigating his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn... Comey has spoken privately with special counsel Robert Mueller to work out the parameters for his testimony to ensure there are no legal entanglements as a result of his public account.

It seemed to some that Comey's statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee just before he was sacked may have affirmed the White House's position, because that quote was often heard without the question.

"We'll be watching with the rest of the world when Director Comey testifies", Ms Conway told ABC News.

Coaching edge: Mike Brown's best move of NBA Finals Game 1
While Shaq's 41 points are surely impressive, he was a catch-and-finish type of player, not really amounting to many turnovers. The Dubs are 13-0 overall in the playoffs, including Thursday's 113-91 win over the Cavs in Game 1 of the NBA Finals .

Comey is set to testify Thursday before the Senate intelligence committee.

Cohen, who'd earlier refused a request for information saying it was "not capable of being answered", told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he would comply with subpoenas, should they be issued.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed allegations that his campaign collaborated with Russian Federation ahead of the presidential election. "That's the rub with executive privilege: It makes it look like you have something to hide", Rozell said.

SC senator Lindsey Graham suggested Friday that a planned hearing next week with former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey could descend into a political "hit job" if the director focuses only on reported conversations between him and the president.

Cubs stop 6-game slide with 3-2 win over Cardinals
Gyorko's wife, Karley, had a baby girl on Tuesday, named Brooklyn Ellee. "He's a very even-keeled player", Matheny said. Lynn will bring a nice 2.93 ERA and 1.06 WHIP into a road showdown with the rival Cubs in his next scheduled outing.

Hirono's question was very specific - referring to "the attorney general or senior officials at the Department of Justice" - and not the president. Andrew Weissmann had been head of the criminal division's fraud section since 2015. But to add emphasis to the collusion conspiracy, Senator Al Franken (D-MN) and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) released a joint letter written to Comey on April 28, asking for additional information regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions' relationship with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. He later joined and ran the Enron Task Force.
