The New York Times and Washington Post have been reporting that Trump pressured FBI director Comey to drop the investigation into former NSC adviser Gen. Flynn, but Former FBI Director Comey testified under oath on May 3rd that the Trump administration had not pressured his agency to halt any investigations.
From Got News:
Former FBI Director James Comey testified under Senate oath May 3rd that the Trump administration had not pressured his agency to halt any investigation for political purposes. Comey admitted that the FBI has always been free to operate without political interference—flying in the face of Democrats’ paranoid delusions about Russia and President Donald J. Trump, and exposing for what it is a new political witch hunt Wednesday by enemies within the president’s own Justice Department.
On Wednesday, DOJ appointed a special prosecutor, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, to drum up more hype about Trump’s imaginary “collusion” with Russia during the general election.

Videotaped testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee blew apart the fake narrative that the New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt ‘reported’ on Tuesday, which resulted in the appointment of Mueller.
Schmidt’s only sources were anonymous and they claimed that on Feb. 14th, the day after NSC Michael Flynn resigned, Trump had asked Comey to end an investigation into Flynn’s connections to Russia, but Comey already stated on May 3rd that Trump never obstructed any investigations.
The @washingtonpost story on Trump and Comey is fake
comey said this UNDER OATH on May 3rd
