WATCH: Comey says he was concerned Trump would ‘lie’ about nature of their first conversation
WASHINGTON — Former FBI Director James Comey says he was concerned Donald Trump would “lie” about the nature of his first conversation with him.
Comey says Trump’s behavior was new to him and led him to think, “I gotta write it down and I gotta write it down in a very detailed way.”
During the meeting, Trump asked if he personally was under investigation. Comey says he told him he was not at that time.
Trump fired Comey in May. At the time, Comey was leading an investigation into Russia’s election meddling and ties with the Trump campaign.
