Senate Dems to meet Wednesday on Comey

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has called on Senate Democrats to be on the floor at 9:30 Wednesday morning to hear what, if anything, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will say about President Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey. 

The conference will then meet at 10:30 a.m. for discussions on the next steps following Tuesday’s bombshell news.

 

 

{mosads}Trump fired Comey on Tuesday based on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters.

Trump wrote in a letter to Comey that the FBI has to restore “public trust and confidence.”

The decision has seen backlash from Democrats and Republicans alike, leading to mounting calls for an independent investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Moscow. The FBI is currently in the middle of conducting such a probe.
