The home of Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign manager came under raid by FBI agent a day after he met with staff members of the Senate Intelligence Committee over Russian meddling in the election.
The US attorney general, Jeff Sessions, said that it was appropriate that he appear before the committee over remarks that sacked FBI director James Comey made to the same committee.
It lasted a little over a day before the US president took to his favourite means of communicating to denounce the testimony of the sacked FBI director.
In a statement issued 24 hours prior to Comey's testimony before the US Senate Intelligence Committee, the former FBI director claims that Trump had demanded loyalty.
Former FBI director James Comey will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee about whether President Donald Trump pressured him to halt a probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's links to Russia.
James Comey is expected to be questioned about the circumstances of his firing and allegations that Trump has tried to stifle the agency's investigation.
The former national security adviser will invoke his constitutional rights against self incrimination when he refuses to hand over vital documentation to a Senate Intelligence Committee investigating alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
He said he would testify but wants protection against unfair prosecution. Flynn could shed light on conversations he had with the Russian ambassador to the US last year when he was the national security adviser for Trump's presidential campaign.
US lawmakers call attention to possible Russian attempts to influence upcoming elections in France and Germany at a US Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.
