The Justice Department aide who the White House announced Friday would be President Trumpís pick for a top DOJ position appears to have also been present at a key meeting between Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then-FBI Director James Comey.

Jody Hunt, Sessionsí chief-of-staff at the Justice Department and Trumpís pick to be assistant attorney general of the departmentís Civil Division, will have to go through a Senate confirmation process that will include a grilling by the Judiciary Committee. Among the things the committee members may want to ask him about was a meeting that occurred between Sessions and Comey in February.

The day after Trump pressured Comey to go easy on former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, Comey met with Sessions and was said to have told Sessions he did not want to be left alone with Trump again. In Comeyís account, he raised concerns about Trump telling everyone else, including Sessions, to leave the Oval Office after a counter-terrorism meeting, while asking to speak to Comey alone.

Comey was ultimately fired by Trump ó a move now the focus of congressional and federal investigations.
