Comey Says House Committees Mostly Asked About Clinton Email Probe

Comey said: "Note that I smiled".

"It is being reported that Leakin' James Comey was told by Department of Justice attorneys not to answer the most important questions".

"It's a waste of time to start with", Rep. Issa said the instructions have been followed with Comey's "gleeful acceptance".

Comey buckled over the weekend, announcing he would appear following assurances that a full transcript would get released and he could speak about what he had testified. "The details of what's going on in there will remain private until after the deposition..." ".

In May 2017 Trump abruptly sacked Comey, who was the senior official leading a criminal investigation into possible collusion with Moscow.

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. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has yet to appear, and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) had a few guesses as to why.

Florida Democrat Ted Deutsch said Friday the Republican majority "wishes to only ask questions still about Hillary Clinton's emails, all to distract from the big news today, which is what's happening in court" - a reference to memos that are expected to be brought down Friday as part of Mueller's investigation into allegations of co-operation between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and foreign individuals and entities, specifically Russian Federation.
