With former FBI Director James Comey testifying in Congress, the pressure continues to mount on the White House to explain the growing controversy surrounding Russia. As Donald Trump deals with the backlash, actor George Takei decided to have a little fun.

Takei on Comey

For the better part of the last two years, Donald Trump has been dealing with a constant cloud of controversy hanging over his campaign and now administration. That cloud is in the form of Russia with speculation that the former host of "The Apprentice" has been in cahoots with the Kremlin dating back to the early days of the 2016 presidential election.

Despite his constant denial, Trump has been unable to shake the narrative, which has continued to present day. From refusing to release his tax returns and his constant praise of Vladimir Putin, to his former and present associates and advisers being linked to Russia in one way or another, Trump is facing a battle that doesn't look to be ending anytime soon. The latest twist comes in the form of James Comey and his testimony to congress in regards to the investigation into Russia. Comey was fired last month in a shocking move by Trump, especially considering that the former head of the FBI was the man leading the aforementioned investigation. As Comey sets to testify, everyone seems to have their own opinions on the matter, including actor and vocal critic of the president George Takei who made his thoughts known during a series of June 8 Twitter posts.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, George Takei mocked and trolled Donald Trump over the James Comey testimony. After reviewing the Comey's prepared opening statement that was released to the press, Takei gave his thoughts and didn't hold back.

"Let's not forget: At the end of all those calls and requests that Comey let the Flynn investigation go, TRUMP FIRED HIM over Russia," he tweeted out.

"If a Police Chief pulled aside an inspector looking into charges of corruption in the dept and said, 'I need loyalty, I expect loyalty,'...You'd start to wonder what that police chief was trying to hide, who he was trying to protect," George Takei went on to write.

"Let us not forget: The New York Times asked President Trump a question point blank back in May that is worth recalling," the actor noted in the first of a four-part tweet.

"In the light of a very busy news week, a lot of people would like to get to the bottom of a couple of things," George Takei prefaced in quoting the paper's questioning to the president. "'Give you a chance to go on record here. Did you at any time urge former FBI director James Comey in any way shape or form to close or to back down the investigation into Michael Flynn?'" Takei wrote, while adding, "Trump did not wait to respond: 'No!

No! Next question.'"

In his next series of tweets, George Takei took a lighter tone, while continuing his trolling of Donald Trump. "The new Special Counsel has his work cut out for him on Russia. There's even a cocktail in his name: Moscow Mueller," he humorously tweeted out. "Trump told me he loves #StarWars. I didn't move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way in the awkward silence that followed," Takei added.

In his final tweet as of press time, Takei posted ,"I called up Donald to chat, but he pretended not to remember that thing we had."

Moving forward

As James Comey sits in congress and delivers a testimony on his meetings with the president and the scandal involving Russia, only time will tell how the White House will respond. Despite the push from the media, Donald Trump and his administration have remained defiant in their denial over the matter at hand.
