The GOP took a dig at former FBI Director James Comey on Wednesday via Twitter with a gif of Ethan Hawke looking through a spyglass with the words, "Trying to find something of substance in Comey's opening statement like."
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 Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser. Comey also wrote that he told Trump on at least one occasion in early January that he was not being investigated at that time.
The RNC also sent out a statement on Comey's statement stating: "Director Comey's statement reconfirmed what the president has been saying all along — he was never under investigation."
