Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., declared Thursday former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee just made things a whole lot worse for the Trump administration.

"After hearing Mr. Comey's testimony today, America is stunned. The cloud hanging over this administration has just gotten a whole lot darker," Schumer said. "President Trump, if you disagree with anything the director said today, play the tapes for all of America to hear or admit there were no tapes."

In his five-minute speech, Schumer praised the "eye-opening testimony" from Comey, who was making his first public remarks since Trump fired him in May. He also took the opportunity to hit Attorney General Jeff Sessions and called on members of the committee to "get to the bottom" of why he didn't recuse himself from the investigation earlier.
