King: Why Was Comey Silent for 2 Months About Trump Meeting?
Following the report that President Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to shut down the federal investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) says he has "real questions" for Comey.
He explained that if Trump indeed asked Comey to end the Flynn probe, then Comey should have flagged the conversation in more than a memo.
"If Director Comey in any way thought that he was being intimidated or the president was trying to interfere with an investigation, I believe that Director Comey had an obligation to report that, report it to the Justice Department, to tell those around him," King said. "Because that could be considered a crime, and as director of the FBI, he had an obligation to make that known."
He added that Comey also had an obligation to share that information with the House and Senate intelligence committees when he testified before them.
King said he is not aware of Comey speaking to anyone in Congress about any interference in any ongoing investigations into Flynn, Russia or the Trump campaign.
"If this was as serious as it's now being made out to be, why has Director Comey been so silent for the last two months?" King said.
