NRA's news outlet blatantly lied about Comey hearing to protect Trump

In more than two hours of testimony, Comey did not make any major new revelations about alleged links between Trump or his associates and Russian Federation.

Comey's almost three-hour appearance Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee marked his first public comments about the nine conversations he said he had with the president in the months before he was sacked.

"Hallie, I've answered the question over and over again the same way".

Comey appeared before a House committee to defend his decision not to charge Clinton.

Mr Comey has no double Russian Federation did interfere in the USA election, and believes he was sacked because of his investigation. This is, strictly speaking, true.

The New York Times was made privy to "privileged information" from the president by Comey, he noted.

RICHARD BURR: Director, when the president requested that you - and I quote - "let Flynn go", General Flynn had an unreported contact with the Russians, which is an offense and if press accounts are right, there might have been discrepancies between facts and his Federal Bureau of Investigation testimony.

Before the hearing, Comey released a pre-written opening statement recounting how President Donald Trump had allegedly asked him during a February 14 meeting to drop a federal investigation into former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Rubio's comments followed Comey's high-profile testimony on Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, of which Rubio is member.

Similarly he would not be drawn on further details about the FBI investigation into former national security advisor Mike Flynn, save to say it was a "criminal" investigation.

Comey said that he declined to do so in large part because of the "duty to correct" that would be created if that situation changed.

"It confused me when I saw on television the president saying that he actually fired me because of the Russian Federation investigation", he said.

The direct accusation was an extraordinary moment in a scandal that has engulfed Trump's presidency and threatens to consume even more of the administration's focus in the coming months, as Trump faces the question of whether he tried to obstruct justice. Comey said he wanted to spur the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to take over the investigation. "That's not uncalled for".

Comey said he was so concerned by the dinner, and the perceived threat to the FBI's independence, that he documented that and other meetings with the president in personal memos.

Former FBI director James Comey walks through a corridor on the way to a secure room to continue his testimony to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 8, 2017. Right now, we have to rely on both Comey and Trump's comments on the issue, and it's almost impossible to prove who is correct. "And my judgement was, I needed to get that out into the public square so I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter".

While Comey testified that he indeed told Trump on numerous occasions he was not personally under investigation, he also indicated Trump is now under scrutiny by Special Counsel Bob Mueller for possible obstruction of justice. "If you look...at the big picture...you get a very, very credible and compelling argument that the President of the United States has not been truthful with the American people; and ordered the director of the FBI to shut down an investigation".

Press secretary Sean Spicer has been asked the same question multiple times, clustered around the time of Trump's initial tweet.
