The Department of Justice is expected to send to Congress on Thursday afternoon copies of former FBI Director James Comey’s memos documenting his interactions with President Donald Trump, according to a source familiar with the department’s plans.
Comey has told lawmakers he drafted seven memos detailing his encounters with the president in person and on the phone. He has also publicly claimed that he felt pressured by Trump to back off the FBI’s pursuit of an investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia as well as into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
The memos are believed to be central to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump or his allies attempted to obstruct the Russia probe.
