Britain's general election, the European Central Bank's policy meeting and former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before a Senate panel are all on market's radar. Read the full statement.

So anticipated is his testimony that CNN has begun a "countdown to Comey" clock.

"There's a lot of questions that have to be answered", said Democratic Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey.

"Director Comey's statement reconfirmed what the president has been saying all along - he was never under investigation", McDaniel said in a statement that did not mention the other aspects of Comey's testimony.

The latest report adds to questions of whether Trump interfered in the Russian Federation investigation, just one day before Comey is set to testify on Trump's request that he end his investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

You can - there will apparently be limited public seating available (Room 216 in the Hart Senate Office Building) - but keep in mind that there is likely to be a long line for very few seats.

The Republican chairman off the Senate intelligence committee, Sen.

"It's obstruction of justice potentially, it's espionage potentially, it's treason, potentially, conflicts of interest, potentially". He repeatedly told me, 'We need to get that fact out'.

Senators specifically want to know if Trump sought a pledge of loyalty from Comey early on - and if Comey was pressured to go easy on former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was sacked for misleading Trump administration officials about meetings he had had with Russia's ambassador the U.S.

In March, after Comey had publicly revealed the existence of a federal counterintelligence investigation into ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, Trump complained that the probe had left a "cloud" that was "impairing his ability to act on behalf of the country".

Indeed, Comey's statement could cause Trump more political trouble than legal entanglements.

Mueller would also be in a position to subpoena the nation's top intelligence chiefs, who appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee Wednesday but declined to say if Trump pressured any of them to halt Comey's Russian Federation probe. "I hope you can let this go, '" Comey says, according to the prepared remarks.

'We deserve the respect we are getting' - Tamim
In ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, Star Sports launched an ad campaign called " mauka mauka " and it became a huge hit. Whenever India and Pakistan faced each other in the 22 yards, it has been a mighty affair for both the teams.

In a discussion following Comey's March 20 disclosure of the existence of the investigation, Comey will testify, he told the president that he had informed congressional leadership on which individuals were now under investigation.

Trump fired Comey in early May, and his administration first said it was due to how Comey handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server.

Trump made Comey nervous enough that he started recording his meetings and calls with Trump immediately afterward in a series of memos, something he did not do with President Barack Obama, Comey said in his prepared testimony.

The New York Times reported the existence of a memo, supposedly written by Comey after a meeting he had with Trump in the Oval Office in February.

"He then said, 'I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

White House officials had weighed trying to block Comey from testifying by arguing that his discussions with the president pertained to national security and that there was an expectation of privacy.

Did Trump ask for a "loyalty pledge"? However, officials ultimately concluded that the optics of taking that step would be worse than the risk of letting the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director testify freely.
