President Trump’s decision to urge then-FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into national security adviser Michael Flynn was so alarming that the bureau boss told Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he didn’t want to be left alone with Trump.

Comey said it was inappropriate for Trump to try to influence the investigation of collusion between Russia and the president’s campaign team. Sessions responded that he could not guarantee Trump would let Comey alone.

After Comey declined to pledge allegiance to the president and end the investigation, Trump fired the FBI director. Trump’s discussions with Comey are likely to be a central theme during Thursday’s Senate Intelligence Committee, where the former FBI boss will testify.

Tickle the Wire will provide live coverage of the committee hearing on Twitter.
