The questions Comey will get when testifying

These are the questions Congressmen and women would like to ask former FBI Director James Comey when he comes to Capitol Hill, as articulated by Adam Schiff this morning at a presser:

  • "First of all, what was the conversation" with Trump? That's likely to be backed up with the memos Comey has allegedly kept on his interactions with Trump, which Senators are requesting to see.
  • "What were the concerns that were raised with you?" Comey is likely to be asked whether Trump asked for his loyalty and whether Trump asked him to drop the Flynn probe.
  • "What were the President's intentions?"
  • "If you were worried about this did you report it to anyone at Justice? Why didn't you inform Congress about this?" If not, lawmakers will want to know why he waited until after he was fired?
