Watch Comey’s game face going into the Senate testimony

Former FBI Director James Comey had his game face on as he was swarmed by photographers when he arrived to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday morning.

Comey has apparently been practicing his stone-faced expression, particularly in his many private, awkward meeting with President Donald Trump. Here is what he wrote in his opening testimony:

A few moments later, the President said, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.” I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed. We simply looked at each other in silence. The conversation then moved on, but he returned to the subject near the end of our dinner.
