3:03 am
got into his fbi vehicle parked outside, and began taking notes on his laptop. >> what was it about that meeting that led you to determine that you need to start putting down a written record? >> combination of things. i think the circumstances, the subject matter and the person i was interacting with. honestly concerned he might lie about the nature of our meeting. thought it was important to document. >> then what was the most disturbing interaction of all, february 14th meeting in the oval office with comey, the president and his top advisers. at the end, the president tells comey to stay, ordering everyone else out of the room. including attorney general jeff sessions and jared kushner. >> my impression was something big is about to happen. i need to remember every single word spoken. my sense was the attorney general knew he shouldn't be leaving, which is why he was lingering. i don't know mr. kushner well, i think he picked up on the same thing. and so i knew something was
3:04 am
about to happen that i needed to pay close attention to. >> reporter: when they were alone, comey claims the president asked him to back off the investigation into fired national security adviser michael flynn. saying he is a good guy and has been through a lot. i hope you can let this go. senators on both side asked about that wording, the president saying, i hope you can let this go. i took it as a direction. the president of the united states with me alone saying i hope this. i took it as this is what he wants me to do. i didn't obey that. that's the way i took it. >> why didn't you stop and say, mr. president, this is wrong. i cannot discuss this with you? >> a great question. maybe if i were stronger, i would have. i was so stunned by the conversation that i just took it in. look, i have seen the tweet about tapes. lordy, i hope there are tapes. >> three months later, comey was fired. he says he quickly wanted to get his side of the story out.
3:05 am
and he planned to use those detailed memos of his one-on-one conversations with trump. >> i asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with the reporter. didn't do it myself for variety of reasons. asked him to. i thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. >> do you believe this will rise to obstruction of justice? >> i don't know. that's bob mueller's job. >> reporter: there is no question in comey's mind about one thing, why he lost his job. >> there was an explanation, i don't buy it. it is my judgment i was fired because of the russia investigation. i was fired in some way to change, or the endeavor was to change the way the russia investigation was conducted. that is, that is a very big deal. >> reporter: mueller has the the memos and is assessing them. comey clearly trying to make the case that mueller must investigate the circumstances of his encounters with the president to determine if a crime was committed. >> going to pick up where he left off.
3:06 am
the senate intelligence committee now plans next week to speak with the special counsel, robert mueller. >> senators want to review comey's memos and notes he turned over to mueller. they plan to question key witnesses including the president's son-in-law. sources tell abc news, jared kushner expected to be interviewed within the next several weeks. >> congress is pressing the was to release any tapes that might exist of meetings between comey and the president. >> interestingly president trump has been utterly sigh le lly si comey's testimony and tweets so far. we're told the president did watch part of the hearing and received updates from aide throughout the morning. his personal attorney did speak publicly firing back at comey disputing almost everything he said with one notable exception. >> mr. comey has now finally confirmed publicly what he repeatedly told president trump privately. that is, that the president was

year's midterm. >> we turn to steve gomez, special agent in los angeles, thank you for joining us. first, foremost. >> good morning. >> you heard comey's testimony, former fbi director admitting to giving his notes to a friend at "the new york times." at a maximum is this legal, at a minimum is it ethical? >> well it is at the minimum, it is a problem from a couple stand points. one, as the former leader of the fbi he was a role model for all of the organization. and that isn't exactly the example you want to set for fbi agents, analysts and personnel that, if you don't like something, then you leak it to the media. that's really a problem. we have seen other issues like that from the nsa contractor and so on. that is a problem there. whether it is legal -- that's, that's a question that is debated. has been debated by legal scholars. the fact is whenever, as an fbi
3:09 am
investigator, you, you have an interview or any kind of encounter with anybody and you take notes there is a reason for taking the notes. he took the notes. typically you would take the notes and place those in an envelope to be held in an investigative file for down the road, recollection, so on. it should technically be part of a file. the fact it was released there will be some debate about whether that was legal or not. >> lot of questioning into that. the fbi pride itself on being independent. how unusual for a president and the head of the fbi to have nine one-on-one communications? >> that is fairly unusual. especially in light of the situation with these investigations. the fbi director is supposed to be independent objective nonpartisan. when there are investigations whether it is directly involving another government official like the president or even
3:10 am
tangentially involving in this case the trump campaign there should be every effort to stay away from having that kind of conversation as they did as was described in the testimony. so, the fact that that is something that came up and the, the director, the former director didn't push back, that's a big concern. because the that's what you have to do. we have seen that with louis freeh, former a.g., janet reno. >> during the clinton years indeed. steve gomez. from los angeles. thank you for joining us. >> the hearing attracted millions of viewers across the country. >> interestingly watch parties springing up across the u.s. people were riveted to screens at homes, offices, bars nationwide. this was easily the most talked about congressional hearing in recent memory. >> yeah, some say important for the theater of it alone. others are happy americans actually want to stay informed. >> it is actually really
