"It confused me when I saw… [Trump] saying that he actually fired me because of the Russia investigation."
Comey said he would not repeat his prepared remarks. A conciliatory beginning: Comey says he understands that the president holds the right to fire an FBI director at any time in their 10-year term. But he says the explanations for his sacking "confused and increasingly concerned" him. The president repeatedly told him he was doing a great job, and told others he was doing a great job. "So it confused me when I saw on television that the president fired me because of the Russia investigation.... That didn't make sense to me." He says the president defamed him and the FBI, saying the agency wasn't doing its job. "Those were lies plain and simple."
