Former FBI Director Testifies Before the Senate

Acknowledges bureaucratic process for surveillance request “diffused” responsibility.

On Wednesday, former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey spoke before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Mr. Comey served as the Director of the FBI until May of 2017 when he was fired by the president for his investigations of Russian interference into the 2016 election.  

Mr. Comey testified that he would have been hesitant to pursue the investigation had he known then what was later revealed about omissions in the surveillance application by the FBI And Justice Department. He agreed that the authorization for surveillance was problematic and that a new system for surveillance requests should be adopted that holds individuals accountable for the process.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would lead the Senate to protect the U.S. from foreign interference. 
  • For God to lead the Senate Judiciary Committee to the best course of action for the country.
  • For God to protect the Trump Administration from foreign interference.
