The line to get into the Comey hearing is absolutely insane

Former FBI Director James Comey takes his seat to testify at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill on Thursday in Washington

Former FBI Director James Comey takes his seat to testify at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill on Thursday in Washington

In Kasowitz's view, Comey's testimony establishes that the president "was not being investigated for colluding" with the Russians, or "attempting to obstruct that investigation".

And then it also came across today - what was fascinating - Comey said that basically Flynn wasn't central to the Russian investigation - that he was touching on it - that of course, we assume, that Flynn wasn't honest in his answering on official forms to become National Security head.In other words, they could flip him because they had him caught on something he dishonestly answered but he wasn't central, it seems, to the Russian thing.

Rubio's questioning was followed by Wyden, who asked Comey why, after Trump told him to "let go" of the Flynn case, he didn't go to his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

A few moments later, the President said, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty".

Anyone involved in the firing of Comey - which Trump admitted in an NBC News interview was motivated, at least in part, by the Russian Federation investigation. In his response, Comey quoted King Henry II, who openly floated the idea of killing Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1170. The king's subordinates acted on the remark as an order to assassinate the cleric.

Microsoft's own Alex Kipman stated that Microsoft's focus is now on Mixed Reality for PCs, so we shouldn't expect to see it. We're hoping to find out more about Quake Champions, Doom VR and Fallout VR and Skyrim on Nintendo Switch .

I hope so, too, but I would be surprised if such recordings exist. "We're thinking along the same lines". Comey testified that the Russians had not only intervened in last year's election, but would try again. "And they will be back".

The former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation told U.S. Sen. "It's stepped up a notch in a significant way in '16". They're going to come for whatever party they choose to work on behalf of and they're not devoted to either in my experience. "They're just about their own advantage".

"It's important for us in the West to understand that we're facing an adversary who wishes for his own reasons to do us harm", said Daniel Fried, a career diplomat who oversaw sanctions imposed on Russian Federation before retiring this year.

The panel's members represent right, left and center of the political spectrum, including liberal Democrats who've attacked Trump relentlessly, and conservative Republicans who've defended him unreservedly.

S. KING: Well, you put that kind of into a package there, but was that the flow of the conversation? "We would have been in a real constitutional crisis".

Politics expert Matthew Goodwin eats his book live on Sky News
One such commentator was Professor Matthew J Goodwin, who teaches Politics at Rutherford College and the University of Kent. Appearing on Sky News yesterday, he was asked if he is a man of his word, to which he replied: "Well indeed I am".

During the hearing, King also asked Comey if the fact that there was no investigation targeting Trump meant that no one at the FBI was investigating the accusations made in the so-called Steele Dossier, a document prepared by a British private investigator and leaked to the media that claimed Russian Federation had salacious and compromising material on Trump from his business trips to Moscow.

In October, Comey declined to sign a statement publicly accusing Russian Federation of meddling in the election - not because he doubted the evidence, aides later said, but because he did not want to interrupt the investigation.

The White House reportedly scrambled to create a strong outside operation to respond to Mr Comey's testimony, but aides to the President reportedly didn't want the commander in chief to take part in that effort. Was it - were you asked?

He said he took detailed notes because he was concerned that the president might lie about what was discussed during those meetings. "And my judgment was, I needed to get that out into the public square, so I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter".

Comey dodged the question: "I don't want to comment ton that senator". He has people that are turning on him, and they're leaking from inside the White House.

A 'weak' United Kingdom negotiating partner 'bad' for Brexit talks
German foreign minister Sigmar Gabriel said he hoped the election result would be seen as a message that the British people do not want a hard Brexit.

He promised to complete the probe "as quickly as we could" but would not say in public what he had assured Trump thrice in private that he personally was not under investigation to avoid a "J Edgar Hoover like situation".
