Fired FBI director’s explosive words to the Senate Intelligence Committee

The former director of the FBI says Donald Trump is a liar who improperly tried to shut down a criminal investigation into a key ally and then fired him to attempt to influence the broader investigation into dealings between Russia and the president’s campaign. James Comey built an extraordinary case that Trump’s words and acts may have constituted obstruction of justice. His testimony amounted to a searing indictment of the president’s conduct and character. Trump himself, not just his associates, faces significant legal and political peril.
