President Trump would like a “thorough investigation of the facts” when former FBI Director James Comey testifies on Thursday among the Senate Intelligence Committee.

FOX’s Jon Decker reports from Washington:

Just days before the former FBI Director James Comey testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the President wants a “thorough investigation of the facts,” and will not invoke executive privilege, even though he could:

(Sanders) “The President’s power to assert executive privilege is very well-established.”

Comey is expected to be questioned by the Intelligence Committee about reports President Trump asked him to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his ties with Russian officials.

Last month Comey was fired by the President.
