A tweet from President Donald Trump to now-fired FBI Director Jim Comey is “witness intimidation,” according to Rep. Gerry Connolly.

The congressman's tweet was in response to Trump on Friday morning, who tweeted, "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

The Virginia Democrat's "obstruction" reference refers to Trump firing Comey Tuesday, according to The Hill.

The congressman also slammed the Comey firing the night it happened, questioning the president's reason for firing Comey when he did.
