Watchdog sues to see if James Comey ‘coordinated’ testimony with Robert Mueller
NOVEMBER 07, 2017
A conservative watchdog group is suing the Justice Department to find out if former FBI Director James Comey “coordinated” with special counsel Robert Mueller before Comey’s appearance before Congress.
Judicial Watch wants “all records of communications” between Comey and the Justice Department, which would include communications to Mueller, in the run-up to Comey’s appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June. Congressional investigators wanted information on Comey’s firing by President Trump, as some lawmakers suspected the move was an attempt to impede a federal investigation into whether his campaign coordinated with the Russian government’s cyber attacks against the Democratic party in 2016.
