Comey calls Trump briefing a 'J. Edgar Hoover-type situation'

Comey felt strongly about assuring President Trump that the FBI wasn't investigating him personally. He also wanted to avoid a "kind of a J. Edgar Hoover-type situation," Comey said in his testimony. "I didn't want him thinking that I was briefing him on this to sort of hang it over him in some way."
