Comey Says House Committees Mostly Asked About Clinton Email Probe

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) appeared to be most frustrated, explaining to the press that Comey came with two attorneys, one of whom has instructed his client to answer very few questions. 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. "I think that the notion that FISA was abused here is nonsense".

Trump's series of early morning tweets came ahead of the expected filing of legal documents on Friday that could shed more light on how two of Trump's closest former aides have helped or hindered Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

In a later tweet, Trump said his lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, would release a response to any conclusions Mueller reports. Strzok defiantly fought with angry Republican lawmakers in a riveting hearing that featured Strzok reading aloud from his sometimes-lewd texts, and Democrats and Republicans openly yelling at each other. "The entire objective of this investigation is to cast aspersions on the real investigation which is Mueller".

Nadler will become judiciary committee chair once the Democrats take over the House in January, and he had a straight answer as to what will become of the congressional investigation.

In October 2017, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) announced a joint investigation into decisions made by the agencies in 2016.
