Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein To Brief Entire Senate This Week On Comey Firing

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief all 100 senators on President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey on Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has announced.

According to a press release, the briefing will take place at 2:30 p.m.




The Senate Intelligence Committee previously invited Comey to testify at a closed session about his firing, but Comey declined, saying he would testify in public instead.

President Trump fired Comey last Tuesday, saying in a later interview that his decision was influenced by the “made up” investigation into possible ties between members of his campaign and Russia, which conducted an influence campaign during the race with the goal of helping Trump.
