|COMEY: TRUMP WANTED INVESTIGATION DROPPED|
The former FBI director says Donald Trump told him an investigation into links between Russia and Trump's campaign was interfering with his job as president.
The insight comes from written testimony that James Comey submitted ahead of appearing before a Senate intelligence committee. The U.S. president fired Comey last month.
Comey added that Trump asked him to "let go" of an investigation into the country's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Flynn resigned in a controversy over contacts he had with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. Comey says the president told him Flynn had not done anything wrong in speaking with the Russians.
Comey also described a private dinner with Trump as "awkward" when the president told him he needs and expects loyalty.
Comey also confirmed that he told Trump three times that the president was not being personally investigated in the Russia probe. Trump has frequently characterized the Russia investigation as a "hoax."
