Dems tease Comey bombshell in status report on terminated Russia probe
House Intelligence Committee Democrats teased possible documentation of ex-FBI Director James Comey's conversation with President Trump when it released a "status report" on Tuesday about their panel's Russia investigation.
The 21-page document, shared by Ranking Member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Twitter, makes their case about why they think the majority party acted "prematurely" when they announced the termination of the probe one day prior and reached the conclusion that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 campaign. The status report said the minority party will be issuing an "interim report" at an as-of-yet undisclosed date. It will lay out "the facts that we know to date and identify what significant investigative steps remain, especially with respect to the issues of collusion and obstruction of justice."

The "status report" document also provided a "partial" list of key witnesses the Democrats still want to hear from — something which Schiff has advertised in the past in the face of GOP opposition — as well as document production requests.
