Comey’s testimony marks the second time in recent weeks he has appeared before joint House committees to investigate his decision-making process and knowledge of investigations ranging from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to the Trump 2016 campaign. The former FBI director’s testimony is due to be released within 24 hours. (RELATED: Comey Sues To Block Subpoena For House Testimony) 

Comey previously testified in early December for several hours, and during that session, he claimed he could not recall answers to specific questions on several occasions. His difficulty with recall also drew the ire of President Donald Trump, who tweeted angrily:

Comey said that President Donald Trump pressured him to drop the FBI’s investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and demanded Comey’s loyalty during the one-on-one meetings he had with president.

The former FBI director refused to answer many questions regarding the Trump campaign investigation, saying he did not want to compromise an ongoing investigation.
