Comey Sought More Money for Russia Probe Days Before He Was Fired, Officials Say

Last week, shortly before he was fired, former FBI Director James Comey requested more money and resources from the Justice Department for his bureau’s investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, according to two officials with knowledge of the discussion.

Comey made the request in a meeting last week with Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and Senate Intelligence Committee members were briefed on the request on Monday.

Rosenstein wrote the memo that was used to justify Trump’s swift and unexpected firing of Comey Tuesday evening.
