In the hours after the mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed at least 58, politicians responded on conference calls, in press releases and on social media. 

Former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on June 8, 2017, speaking publicly for the first time since he was fired by President Trump nearly a month ago. The Senate Committee looked into the circumstances around Comey's dismissal and how they relate to the FBI investigation of Russian interference in the U.S. Election. The White House has given conflicting messages about the reasons for Comey's firing. Sources close to Comey say the President told Comey to shut down the Russia investigation. That's a charge that the White House denies.
