Watch former FBI Director James Comey testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. These were Comey's first public comments since he was fired on May 9. Live coverage began at 9AM ET on Thursday.
A copy of Comey's opening statement circulated online Wednesday afternoon. A response statement from President Trump's lawyer explains Trump feels "completely and totally vindicated" by Comey's prepared testimony, and is eager to move forward.
Read the entire letter, via the Senate Intelligence Committee:
