Almost 20 Million Viewers Tune Into James Comey Testimony

Posted June 11, 2017

Reached by phone Saturday morning about an interview, the father of former FBI Director James Comey expressed a willingness to speak to a CNN reporter.

Some 19.5 million Americans tuned in to live broadcasts of former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey's testimony before the US Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, the TV ratings company Nielsen Ratings in a news release said. NBC drew 2.723 million and joined its two rivals airing commercial-free coverage of the almost 3-hour testimony.

"His company is his son, Jim", the man answered, identifying himself as that company, the ex-FBI director who delivered extraordinary testimony before Congress this week about his interactions with President Donald Trump before he was sacked last month.
