ENDED: James Comey testifies before Senate intel committee
Former FBI Director James Comey took the stand in a crucial Senate hearing to discuss his allegations that President Donald Trump urged him to drop an investigation into Michael Flynn, formerly one of the nation's top security officials.
In his opening statement, Comey said that the Trump administration lied about both him and the FBI in statements about why he was fired. Later, in his first answers to questions from senators, Comey said he had no doubt that the Russian government meddled in the US election in November 2016.
His written statement to the committee was released online the day before the hearing.
