Former FBI Director James Comey did offer President Donald Trump assurance he was not personally being investigated by the department, according to Comey’s prepared testimony for a Thursday hearing in the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Comey said he offered the assurance to then-president-elect Trump on Jan. 6 in a briefing in Trump Tower. Before that meeting, he spoke with the FBI’s leadership team about whether he should tell Trump the agency was not investigating him.
“That was true; we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him. We agreed I should do so if circumstances warranted,” Comey said. “During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President-Elect Trump’s reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance.”
