"Today I asked all staff to clear the room except for my district director. I then looked him straight in the eye & asked how's the weather," Lieu wrote on Twitter early Saturday.

The tweet follows a similar post by the California Democrat on Thursday.


"After watching Comey, I told staff to leave my office except for my [chief of staff]. I looked him in the eye & said I ‘hope’ you retweet this,” Lieu tweeted.

In a highly anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Comey told lawmakers that, during a meeting at the White House in February, Trump cleared the room of staffers and other administration officials, before privately asking Comey to end the FBI probe of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Comey's account has led some to question whether Trump may have committed obstruction of justice – an allegation that Lieu believes is accurate.

"#JamesComey laid out facts for Obstruction of Justice that even a first-time prosecutor could convict on with little difficulty," he wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

"Dear @realDonaldTrump: You should have your lawyer explain to you the Obstruction of Justice law you violated. Oh, and read about Watergate," he tweeted on Friday.
