Trump wishes Comey luck, allies aim at lawman's credibility

One of the country's top intelligence leaders, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, said that President Trump asked him to intervene with James Comey and his investigation into his disgraced adviser, according to a report. Since then, Trump and Comey allies have traded competing narratives about their interactions.
According to the Post, Coats attended a White House briefing with several other officials from government agencies.
There are also likely to be questions about the investigation into Russian election interference overseen by Comey and where the inquiry stood at the time of his firing.
Many legal experts have suggested that the conversation, as well as the firing, could be evidence of obstruction of justice by the president.
A non-profit issues group is labelling James Comey a political "showboat" in a television ad set to air Thursday, the day the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director testifies on Capitol Hill.
Flynn has been a focus of the investigations in their early stages, with an Associated Press source saying last week that the general, who had previously pled his Fifth Amendment right to not self-incriminate, will provide at least some documents to a second request.
Comey's testimony, though still days away, has already garnered considerable attention and threatened to deepen the White House's problem of continued investigations. Coats, who was preparing for his confirmation hearing, felt blindsided, officials said.
The appearance will mark Comey's first public comments since Trump abruptly fired him last month.
The Senate intelligence panel also issued its first subpoena in its Russian Federation investigation, demanding documents from Flynn. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., Coats said that if asked, he would provide details of his conversations with Trump to Mueller. I said I have not had a discussion with him on the question. He said the Trump administration has not directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to withhold information from members of Congress conducting oversight.
