The political drama that continues to unfold at Trump’s White House seems to get more complicated each day. On Wednesday, Sergei Lavrov visited The White House, just after Donald Trump fired James Comey via national television.

The Russian Foreign Minister had a private meeting at the White House. However, adding to the drama of the closed door event between the White House and Lavrov, is that all U.S. news outlets were denied access to the event. But ironically, Tass, the Russian state-run news outlet were permitted to send one of its photographers.

Russia's Foreign Minister visited Rex Tillerson

After his meeting with US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, Lavrov refused to answer questions regarding his country’s interference in the United States election process. Reportedly, Lavrov expressed surprise when he was asked if the firing of the FBI Director would raise questions about his White House visit. It was reported that Lavrov arched his eyebrows and in disbelief asked if the head of the FBI agency was really fired from his job.

Meanwhile, the furor continues to increase over Trump’s abrupt dismissal of Director James Comey Jr. According to several sources, a new revelation showed that Comey requested additional resources to further investigate the possible collusion between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump’s election campaign team.

Comey fired to end hack investigation?

Senators on both sides of the aisle expressed dismay at the unforeseen dismissal. The abrupt firing they said, will divert bipartisan support into the 2016 election interference. Additionally, it will also affect the investigation into Trump associates and alleged ties to the Kremlin.

However, while the President may have sacked the lead investigator into his Russian dealings, the Democrats and some Republicans stated that the ongoing investigation should be assigned to a special prosecutor.

Trump, in his defense said he fired the FBI Director because of his mishandling of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation. But, for some, it is seen as a blatant lie, many said the dismissal of FBI Director Comey further proved that the GOP administration will annihilate anyone posing a threat to Donald Trump’s presidency.

And while the circus at the White House continues to consume the attention of politicians on Capitol Hill, the ex-director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation will pay them a visit on Tuesday.

James Comey was invited by the Senate Intelligence Committee will testify about his investigation into the Russian hack at their next meeting.
