Fired FBI Director James Comey spend several hours in the hot-seat being grilled by members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. They were hoping that Comey would testify that President Trump tried to obstruct justice, but what they got was testimony that backfired on Democrats when Comey said he was pressured by the previous administration to downplay the investigation in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
James Comey’s testimony before congress was supposed to be a dream come true for democrats. Instead, they found themselves cursing under their breath.
Comey, the disgraced FBI Director fired by Donald Trump for his poor execution of his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal, testified before Congress in an open hearing today with a focus on his dismissal from the bureau. A great many inquiries were made during his nearly 3 hours on the stand, most with a focus on whether or not Comey believed that he was fired due to the FBI’s ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. While Comey’s answers were not at all what the liberals wanted to hear on Russia, when asked about a different matter altogether, the former Director absolutely demolished the hopes and dreams of the delusional democrats.
“For the first time, former FBI Director James Comey, who is testifying today before the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to call the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal a ‘matter’ and not an ‘investigation.’ …
Comey did give some testimony that was damaging to President Donald Trump, but Trump’s attorney responded in pointing out that Comey’s statement on his leaked memo was wrong. Comey said he leaked the memo to the New York Times after a specific tweet had been made, but in fact, the New York Times quoted directly from the memo the day before the tweet Comey referred to.
