Comey transcript of closed-door interview with House committee released

Journalist The real reason Trump wanted Mc Cabe fired

Incoming House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler said the probe into Federal Bureau of Investigation behavior was a "waste of time" and that he would shut it down.

Comey resisted, arguing the GOP-led investigation in the decision-making by the FBI and the Justice Department in 2016 and 2017 was politically motivated.

Democrats complain Republicans are simply trying to fuel a conspiracy theory to protect Trump from the ongoing Russian Federation probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

"Robert Mueller and Leakin" Lyin" James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest, ' Trump wrote Friday. Republicans, such as Darrell Issa, said that Comey was repeatedly directed by an attorney from the Department of Justice, who was present for the hearing, not to answer certain questions.

Former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify Friday, in private, before the House Judiciary Committee regarding the bureau's Hillary Clinton email investigation and the ongoing Russian Federation inquiry. Fittingly, a GOP member of the committee spoke to the media afterwards about how Comey wouldn't answer questions, at the direction of legal counsel.

Prior to Friday's closed-door session, Comey said he would agree to testify publicly but did not want to do so privately for fear of Republicans's "selective leaking and distortion".

"Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case", he said at the time.

He also says he is not sure he is able to coach at the intense, demanding level he has used for more than 30 years. Day's opening statements were what you would expect from any head coach taking over a program.

Comey was in charge of both those investigations. "Force him to answer the questions under oath!"

He expanded, "The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersions on the real investigation, which is Mueller".

New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the top Democrat on the Judiciary panel, said as he walked into the Comey interview that he will end the investigation when he is expected to take over the panel in January.

"Don't do it in a dark corner and don't do it in a way where all you do is leak information", said Comey's attorney, David Kelley.

But Comey would not sit idle and have his testimony, which will be made public via a transcript, "twisted in that way".

"We had more questions than we had time", said Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee. The panel released a transcript of that questioning on Saturday.
