Trump hits out at Comey testimony, claiming 'all lies'

Trump hits out at Comey testimony, claiming 'all lies'

Comey's testimony came during a six hour closed-door meeting with Republicans and Democrats on the committees in which he answered questions about the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, the Russian Federation counterintelligence investigation he launched before he was sacked from the FBI and the potential dismissal of special counsel Robert Mueller by Trump.

Speaking with MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, Comey begged Democrats to set aside their ideological differences in order to nominate the candidate most suited to oust Trump.

Impeachment, let alone removal from office, is no simple matter.

President Donald Trump lashed out at former FBI Director James Comey over testimony he gave to the House Judiciary and Oversight committees on Friday, accusing the former FBI chief, without evidence, of lying to lawmakers and questioning his inability to recall events related to certain questions.

Comey, who was abruptly fired by Trump in May 2017, was ordered to appear before congress behind closed doors on Friday to respond to questions from lawmakers investigating the actions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice during the scandal involving former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton regarding her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

"All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021", Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City's Upper East Side.

In response, Comey said: "My reaction to it is actually disturbing to me, which is kind of, "Eh, there he goes again.' I thought I was "Lyin" James Comey" now I'm "Leakin" James Comey'".

Asked if President Trump's tweets could be viewed as witness tampering, Comey answered carefully - insisting he had no insight into Mueller's thinking.

Comey said the president's tweets were "disturbing", but he stopped short of saying they should be counted as witness tampering in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation collusion probe.

Advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington sued the Justice Department today in a bid to gain quick access to records that may reflect a leak of information about the Clinton email investigation to Rudy Giuliani in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

"To their everlasting shame, the leaders - (Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell, (House Speaker Paul) Ryan - refused", Comey said.

Trump typically responds to his detractors on Twitter, but has not yet directly responded to Comey's comments. "Obama had the confidence to be quiet and try and get that".
