Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Wednesday said former FBI Director James Comey in his planned opening statement "reconfirmed what the president has been saying all along — he was never under investigation."

Comey is set to testify Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating possible ties between Trump campaign officials and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

In seven pages of written testimony made public Wednesday, Comey outlined how Trump sought his loyalty and an end to the investigation into Gen. Michael Flynn, his national security adviser. Comey also wrote he told Trump on at least one occasion in early January he was not being investigated at that time.

But Comey also wrote he told Trump on March 30 during a phone call he told congressional leaders the FBI was not personally investigating President Trump.

When Trump asked him to "get that fact out," Comey said: "I did not tell the president that the FBI and the Department of Justice had been reluctant to make public statements that we did not have an open case on President Trump for a number of reasons, most importantly because it would create a duty to correct, should that change."

"President Trump was right," McDaniel said.
