Former FBI director James Comey came forth with a memo after he was fired by President Trump. He tried to state that Trump attempted to persuade him to drop an investigation against former national security advisor, Michael Flynn. However, the White House pushed back, and they pushed back hard. The claimed that no such thing ever happened, and Comey himself may have proved that to be true, before he ever even sent out his phony meme.
Comey actually stated, under oath, that no one has ever asked him to stop an FBI investigation. He stated this on May 3, 2017 .

As Breitbart reported, here is how the conversation went:
“So if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?” Hirono asked.
“In theory yes,” Comey answered.
“Has it happened? Hirono asked.
“Not in my experience,” Comey responded. “Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose.”
“I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there, and so you ought to stop investing resources in it,” Comey said. “But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal.
“It’s not happened in my experience,” Comey said.
