John McCain's Surreal Questioning of Comey

The 80-year-old Arizona Republican jokes that maybe he shouldn't stay up late watching the Arizona Diamondbacks and says he missed an opportunity in Thursday's hearing.

Comey pointed out they were separate investigations, begun at different times.

"I'm a little confused, Senator", was Comey's response.

Comey replied by outlining that "it concerned me, because we were at the point where we had refused to confirm the existence, as we typically do of an investigation, for months; and it was getting to a place where that looked silly, because the campaigns were talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work". Comey explained, for the third time, that the Clinton investigation was about an email server and was concluded in July 2016.

Odd because McCain isn't actually on the Senate intelligence committee. James Lankford, R-Okla., Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), who had repeatedly called for a special counsel in the case previous year.

It's not preferences over opposition. "The batting I would say was 10 out of 10", added the Indian skipper. Rohit Sharma (91) and Shikhar Dhawan (68) gave a steady start to their side.

Former FBI Director James Comey threw the media, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Donald Trump "under the bus" in his testimony, ex-GOP congressman and Trump supporter Peter Hoekstra told CNBC on Friday. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and Sen. Is that correct? COMEY: I don't know how far the - the FBI has to go, but yes, that - the Clinton e-mail investigation was completed.

McCain, who can alternate between gruff and self-deprecating, afterward made light of the mess.

MCCAIN: "Well, at least in the minds of this member, there's a whole lot of questions remaining about what went on, particularly considering the fact that as you mentioned, it's a, quote, big deal as to what went on during the campaign, so I'm glad you concluded that part of the investigation, but I think that the American people have a whole lot of questions out there, particularly since you just emphasized the role that Russian Federation played".

"I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people's heads".

But the silver lining for McCain is that the Diamondbacks won, 7-4.
