WATCH: Comey says ‘shifting explanations’ of his firing concerned him
WASHINGTON — Former FBI director James Comey says that shifting explanations of his firing confused and concerned him.
The ousted FBI director says at the start of his high-profile Senate hearing that President Donald Trump had repeatedly told him he was doing a great job. Comey says he told the president he planned to serve out his full 10-year term.
Comey says he was “confused” by the explanation that his decisions during the 2016 election was the reason he was fired by Trump.
