By By now, you’re probably aware that the US Department of Justice is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
And you’re also aware that a few months ago, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was forced to resign.
Now, it’s been a week since President Donald Trump fired the director of the FBI, James Comey, and that means the investigation is far from over.
Now it’s not quite clear what, if anything, the president wants the FBI to do, but it’s safe to say that the investigation will not be complete.
The Trump administration has also been accused of leaking sensitive information, such as memos written by Comey that were leaked to The New York Times.
The FBI director has also reportedly refused to testify under oath before the House Intelligence Committee.
And in the latest twist, the Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed former FBI director Christopher Wray to testify.
According to reports, former acting Attorney General Sally Yates told the Senate Judiciary Committee that the White House wanted Wray, a career FBI director, to testify about Comey’s firing.
Yates said Wray was reluctant to testify because he had previously refused to comply with the subpoena, which is what prompted the committee to subpoena him to testify on March 1.
But she added that Wray’s refusal to answer the subpoena had no impact on the committee’s decision to subpoena Wray.
Yate said WRAY declined to comply, and “the White House and the Department of DOJ had a plan in place to pressure the former Director.”
The White House has said Yates’s testimony was a mistake, but the administration’s actions could have legal ramifications.
Wray is also under investigation for possible obstruction of justice and possible perjury.
The president has previously called Yates “so incompetent,” “unhinged,” and “unfit to hold this office.”
