In light of Jim Comey’s Senate hearing, Kivvit’s Tracy Schmaler weighed in on his past testimony for The Washington Post

Former FBI Director Jim Comey is testifying in front of the Senate Intel Committee this morning on investigations into Russia interfering with U.S. elections — and people are expecting something big. Kivvit Managing Director Tracy Schmaler weighed in on the issue by relaying to The Washington Post her experience with Comey’s past hearings: 

“Comey has made a career of providing bombshell testimony to Congress,’’ said Tracy Schmaler, a former Senate Judiciary Committee staffer who attended a 2007 hearing in which Comey captivated the capital with an account of apparent White House interference with Justice Department decision-making. “In that respect, Thursday will be what everyone’s expecting — the most anticipated hearing so far in the Trump administration.”

Schmaler, who has years of experience working on the Hill and at the Department of Justice, told the Post that she will be listening to Comey’s testimony with a keen interest in getting the details of his conversations and interactions with President Trump:

“Now we’re actually going to know what Comey’s views, thoughts and reactions were when the president asked him those questions,” Schmaler said. “I will be curious to see whether and how he tries to lay a foundation for possible obstruction of justice.”
