Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that Trump demanded his loyalty and leaned on him to pull back the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The Senate panel is leading one of four congressional probes into Russia’s alleged interference in last year’s presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is heading a separate Justice Department investigation. The congressional probes are largely aimed at educating the public, while Mueller’s investigation could lead to criminal prosecutions.
