Former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey will testify on June 8 before a congressional committee investigating Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election. Comey is expected to tell the Senate Intelligence Committee that US President Donald Trump asked him to drop an investigation into former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russia. Trump fired Comey on May 9.

Legal experts say that Trump could invoke a doctrine called executive privilege to try to stop Comey from testifying. But such a maneuver would draw a backlash and could be challenged in court, they said.

Executive privilege is a legal doctrine that allows the president to withhold information from other government branches. Legal experts said Trump would face an uphill climb if he asserted executive privilege to stop Comey from testifying before the congressional committee.

Comey is playing a dangerous game. I hope he realized he is a pawn of the left and will be used up before he ever gets rewarded.
