7:04 am
private meetings he had with the president and the information in those documents shed light on the topics and questions that senators today at this hearing may focus on this morning. >> on january 27 he was invite today a private din we are the president. he writes hope my instincts told me the one on one seat setting and the pretense meant dinner was at least in part an effort to have me ask for my job and create some sort of patronage relationship. that concerns me greatly, given the fbi traditionally independents status in execkive branch. a few moments later, the president said quote i need loyalty. i expect loyalty. comey writes i didn't move, speak or change my facial expression in anyway during the awkward silence that followed. we simply looked at each other. i need loyalty. comey replied you will always get honesty from me. he was surprised when the president cleared everybody out of a room to speak privately
7:05 am
with him: mr. trump told him quote i hope you can see your way clear of letting that go, letting flynn go. he a good guy. i hope you can let this go. comey goes on to say quote i understood the president to be requesting that we drop any investigation of flynn. >> and comey was referring of course in statement to michael flynn, the president's former national security advisor who has been a focus of the information into the connections to russia. looking right now, live picture from inside the senate office building, senator -- former fbi director james comey taking center stage there. we have been told that the room is filled to capacity, and that some people were lining up as early as 4:00 a.m. eastern time to guy the hearing. it looks like the line of questioning or the opening statements from the senators and senate intelligence committee just beginning. senator dianne finestein and harris are on the intelligence committee so you will be
7:06 am
hearing questions undoubtly from them as well. this all getting underway in washington dc. you can see former fbi director james comey sitting there beginning this hearing on talking about some of these conversations that he had with president trump before he was fired. we will continue to monitor this throughout morning and i will have another update with what is said in these first moments of the hearing about 30 minutes from now. thank you. >> all right. thank you. i want the bring in professor of law as we wait for james comey to start his opening statement. do you think the senators will be able to get more out of comey in this public form? we saw the prewritten statement. for anything different other than that today. >> i am not sure. one thing that struck me when i read the statement yesterday is that comey and this is no surprise, he was the director of the fbi for a long time is a very cautious man. he's speaking strictly to facts and when he's interpreting the intentions, he's doing it in most denine light, and he's
7:07 am
doing it specifically so that he's not suspected of exaggerating or anything like that. and i think he's going be very careful today as well. i'm sure he's very well prepared. >> he's no strange tore testifying. he has done this a number of time. >> does this come down to a credibility battle the word of two men against the other. >> to some extent. some of this is an issue of credibility and some of this is an issue of 1974 what did the president know and when did he know it which the issue on, a lot of us are sitting that morning in front of our tv with obstruction of justice in the back of our heads to figure out what's going on, what can we assume? a lieutenant of this comes down to not so much what the president said but what he intended in what he said, and in that sense, given fact that comey is being very cautious in what he says a lot of us are going to let our imagination and our political inclinations to complete the things, the voids that are in statement. >> we are looking at it through our democratic or republican
7:08 am
eyes. >> exactly. >> so much about president trump versus comey here. what about president trump versus public opinion. >> that takes more front and center would you say during this committee hearing. >> quite possibly and one thing we need to be looking for is trying to figure out at what point and what are the things that comey will be saying today are implying intentions by trump to stop the investigation into russia. there were for in of us, there were several red flags, you know, reading the statement yesterday, and we saw some things that are, you know, cause for alarm but again i can see how someone who looks at it from a completely different perspective and more favorably inclined toward president trump might read thing a more innocent light. >> i believe that the plan, yes. >> as things get underway we will put you on hold. you will stay with us throughout the morning. you are monitoring the

8:04 am
the president said so. she said why didn't you stop and say mr. president, this wrong, and in response to that he said quote i was so stunned by the conversation that i just took it all in. i also within to go back earlier about 15 minutes ago from a lynn of questioning from democratic senator mark warner. that senator asked about the private conversations with the president including a couple of private dinners he had with president trump. president trump had asked him to stay on as fbi director according to comey before he was tire fired, january 27 he was invite today a private dinner with the president and here what comey had to say about his conversation with mr. trump at that dinner. >> the next friday, i have dinner and the president begins by wanting to talk about my job. so i am sitting there thinking wait a minute, throw times we have already, you have already asked me to stay or talked about me staying and my common sense i could be wrong but my common sense told me what's going on here is that he's looking to get something in exchange for granting my request to stay in the job.
8:05 am
>> again, we all understand. >> that the hearing started promptly at 7:00 after opening remarks. senator richard burr is the -- he was the first to ask questions of former fbi director comey. the first question he asked is do you have any doubt russia try today interfere in the u.s. election is to that comey said no, he had no doubts but also said he was confident no u.s. votes were tampered with. we're asked did the president on long beyond -- he also said he want today make a point to the american people to let them know that the fbi is honest, strong, is and always will be independent. former director comey also had some strong words for president trump saying that in the letter when he was fireed it letter that the president did, the assistant attorney general put out firing him, he said that letter defamed him, and his work at the fbi, the
8:06 am
organization in disarray under comey's leadership. this all continuing right now you can see senator from florida, mark rubio continuing that line inof questioning with former director james comey but we will continue to listen in and we will have the highlights coming up again in half an hour. >> all right. thank you. join us now in studio is -- professor of law at uca. thank you begin for joining us. one highlight is something you said stuck out for you and that's when james comey said the trump administration chose to defame me and the fbi using lies, plain and simple. >> yeah, much of this goes to question of why comey was fired, and this is -- he says at the hearing this is still who of a mystery or him artless that's how he presents it at the hearing now, and he claims well i think that was fired because the president thinks that i did something wrong the russia investigation. the president deliberately try today portray me as not being supported by the fbi, as not having the trust of my
8:07 am
colleagues and he says that's not the case, and those of you watching the hearing probably saw finestein saying to him we know that's not true. we know there's a strong consensus in the fbi that people did trust and support you, and the president fired you came as a big surprise to them. >> the president tweeted he better hope that the tapes i have don't come out. comey was asked about those tapes. he said i hope there are tapes and i know they do come out. do you think there are tape ins do you think we will ever hear them. >> i am sitting here and feeling this huge devavu to 1974. if there are tapes that would be interesting. what i am notice as good that comey being very cautious because of the special information. especially the content of the actual -- to she's not going there although hi that the
8:08 am
russians -- there a lot more to that they. the number of, but for now this what we have and he's better very careful. >> a question aboutty where. according mark saying felt the president was vindicated. would you foe with them. >> in. >> i think the extone ten to which they. something that gets eliminated by opinion of the people marring system. most held. whether or not we can of obstruction of justice a different question, and i think the one worth talking about, but i don't really see a -- i don't see that. >> in those -- in the testimony it seem like there's a little opinion. are they supposed to be more
8:09 am
facts from the prewritten testimony yesterday. >> it is very difficult to separate facts from opinion. one classic example is when he was asking ere being asked when the president says i hope you can let this go, isn't he just expressing hope, not pressuring you, just saying i hope you can let this go. >> %ly. this is say line between fact and opinion, comey said you have to take san bernadino account the context. the president of the united states has asked me to sit alone in a range of motion with him. he has dismissed everybody else because he wants to speak with me personally. >> a lot of people say that's how business men and women carry out important meetings, remember, president trump's background is one of business out of politics and it is free frequent. the general manager will i call me alone. >> so you are saying political professional relationships are different. >> he may be carrying out his meetings in a different way from previous president. >> i am fairly sure he has been briefed on how to conduct
8:10 am
these meetings. i would be pretty surprise first degree this just anover sight and it is important to keep in mind we have a long history in this country of being very concerned about cozy relationships between the president and the fbi. i had gar huer was apinned for life and carried -- edward huger. we know he followed white house officials who were rumor today be gay. he was conducting informations of eisenhower apartmently because of all of the misgivings that we have about massive overreaches that he did during his term, we have worked very hard to decree kuwait separation between the fbi and the president. >> james key may seeing he had two conversations in all of his time with president obama and nine conversations with president trump in just four months. >> the hearing continues of course. thank you: we will have you back oncoming up in about the next few minutes and mornings on 2 to digest what's unfolding in washington dc. thank you for being here with

8:34 am
which you are of the person i was inter-- it is going to be important to protect this organization. i node to dock this. system of the other thing he has no doubt he said that russia tried to interfere with the election, and he also said me didn't find any evidence that any votes were tampered with. he also has strong words for president trump saying quote i always understood i could be fired at any time but he went on say the administration chose to quote defame me, siting the termination letter they referenced disoregon anyization in the leadership. both are on the senate intelligence committee. with you have heard questions from one of them. senator dianne fine stein asked some questions and one of them is why he thought he was fired. comey says he wasn't sure. she followed up by asking do you think you were fired
