ERIC TUCKER,Associated Press 26 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AP) Former FBI Director James Comey will say in his opening statement to a congressional hearing that President Donald Trump told him, "I need loyalty. I expect loyalty" during a January dinner, according to documents released a day ahead of his planned testimony.

Comey is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence committee Thursday. His prepared statement was released Wednesday afternoon.

In the statement, Comey said he and Trump dined together privately in January. During the meal, he said Trump asked him if he wanted to remain on as FBI director. Comey said he replied that he wanted to serve out his ten-year term and "was not on anybody's side politically."

Comey said Trump then made his statement about loyalty. Comey replied that he could offer his honesty, and that when Trump said he wanted "honest loyalty," Comey answered, Comey paused and said, "You will get that from me."

Trump abruptly fired Comey last month.

Hearing quotes from this statement on the radio. Sounds like Cheeto wanted a total puppet running the FBI, and Comey wasn't having none of that shit. At least that's consistent with the guy who warned John Asscrotch that the Chimpministration was trying to take advantage of him being stoned out of his mind on Morphine while hospitalized for pancreatitis (to approve a PNAC torture plan)
