Comey Dodges Key Question About Using Dossier To Get FISA Warrant

Comey Dodges Key Question About Using Dossier To Get FISA Warrant

He also said he had agreed to testify again on December 17.

"When you read the transcript, you will see that we are talking again about Hillary Clinton's emails, for heaven's sakes, so I'm not sure we need to do this at all", he told reporters after his six-hour closed-door session facing committee members.

Comey made the remarks following a hearing in front of Congress where he "declined to answer questions about a range of matters because of special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections", CNN reported.

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.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) has been trying to get Comey back to ask new questions, given how much information has come to light since then, including some contradictions to his earlier comments, such as how many emails they were able to review.

Michael Cohen former lawyer to President Donald Trump leaves his apartment building on New York’s Park Avenue Friday Dec. 7 2018. In the latest filings Friday prosecutors will weigh in on whether Cohen deserves prison time and if so how much. (A

Democrats say they will scrutinize Trump's attacks on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department when they assume control of the House in January.

Comey agreed to appear for the interview only after unsuccessfully fighting a subpoena in court. Comey was in charge of both investigations. President Trump's campaign chairman, top campaign aide, former national security advisor and longtime personal attorney are all cooperating in the inquiry, which the president calls a "witch hunt". It is the first time he has answered lawmakers' questions since an explosive June 2016 hearing in which he asserted that President Donald Trump fired him to interfere with his investigation of Russia's ties to the Trump campaign.

Over the past year, Republicans on the Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform panels have brought in a series of officials and said after the closed-door meetings that there is evidence of bias.

A transcript of Comey's sit down with Congress is expected to be released in the next 24 hours.

"Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein's public statements that he did not really talk seriously about taping the president and invoking the 25th Amendment is not consistent with the number of other sworn testimony or transcribed interviews that we've had", he said. But it also found there was no evidence that Comey's or the department's final conclusions were motivated by political bias toward either candidate.
