President Donald Trump told reporters Tuesday that he wishes fired FBI Director James Comey luck ahead of his Thursday Senate testimony.
The comment came during a meeting with congressional leadership, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, where the group is slated to discuss Trump‘s stalled agenda on Capitol Hill.
Lawmakers tell CNN that Comey won’t be constrained in recounting his conversations with Trump, but a Senate intelligence committee source also said that Comey is expected to abstain from discussing the ongoing federal Russia investigation.
Jared Kushner, a top White House aide and Trump‘s son-in-law, also attended the meeting. Trump joked during the gathering that his aide “has become much more famous than me.” Trump, through laughter, added: “I’m a little bit upset about that.” Kushner has come into the Russia-investigation spotlight.
