James Comey trashes Republicans after leaving House hearing

James Comey trashes Republicans after leaving House hearing”

Eventually Comey agreed to a closed-door hearing on the condition that a transcript be made public afterward.

Comey was asked on his way into the meeting room about President Trump's assertion that he is best friends with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the Russian Federation probe. He said the department lawyer repeatedly instructed Comey not to answer "a great many questions that are clearly items at the core of our investigation".

Then he walked inside a committee room for a grilling that was set to last hours.

Comey, according to Issa, also appeared to be gleeful about following those instructions.

Daimler chairman Dieter Zetsche told reporters that additional USA investments are contingent on conditions remaining the same. China has made no direct mention of specific goods they will start to buy nor given any timeframe for when they may start.

Trump, who fired Comey in May 2017 after the FBI began investigating whether the Trump campaign had a role in Russian election interference, renewed his Twitter attacks on Comey Friday in anticipation of the testimony. A total Witch Hunt, ' the president tweeted at 6:18 a.m.

Comey had fought the congressional subpoena in court, pushing for a public hearing before settling for some concessions.

His lawyers had fired a brief seeking to quash the subpoena, demanding "transparency" and arguing Republicans would selectively leak information if he were to appear behind closed doors.

He argued that the hearing is a big wild goose chase. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Tex., could not get Comey to say through his line of questioning that the surveillance was authorized due to information from the Steele dossier.

Match-winner Origi emerged as a substitute in the 84th minute, replacing Roberto Firmino. Klopp, who admitted the goal was "a bit lucky", expressed his delight for Origi.

The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Virginia Rep. Robert Goodlatte, decried Comey's use of "baseless litigation" and called it an "attempt to run out the clock on this Congress", a reference to the few weeks left before Democrats take control.

House Republicans have argued that Comey was biased against Trump because the FBI cleared Clinton, the former secretary of state who was Trump's rival in the 2016 election, in a probe into her use of a private email server, but pressed ahead with its investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the election. Comey was asked by Republicans about the involvement of former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok and Justice Department lawyer Lisa Page in Comey's decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for improper use of a personal email as secretary of state.

Comey was in charge of both those investigations.

In addition to Comey's ouster four years into a 10-year term, Trump helped orchestrate the removal from the bureau of Andrew McCabe, who was interim director when Comey was sacked. Democrats will also attend the interview.
