In a prepared statement for record to the Senate Intelligence Committee that was released on Wednesday, fired FBI Director James Comey said that he didn’t keep detailed memos on his conversations with Obama like he did with Donald Trump. SAY WHAT!?
That’s right. Comey apparently took notes on EVERY meeting with President Trump before and after his inauguration, but he only spoke with Obama a whopping two times! Just TWO TIMES!!!
And, believe it or not, neither of those two times were after the DNC computers were ‘hacked’! Shocking, I know.
To make matters worse, he also did not record his THREE HOUR interview with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on her alleged criminal email activity. In fact, he skipped the meeting altogether, and The FBI did not swear in Hillary Clinton during her testimony! Unreal.
Per The Hill:
Hillary Clinton did not swear an oath to tell the truth before meeting with the FBI for three and a half hours last weekend, and the interview was not recorded, FBI Director James Comey told House lawmakers on Thursday.
The lack of a sworn oath does not remove the possibility of criminal penalties against Clinton if she lied to the FBI, though he said he had “no basis to conclude” that she was untruthful.
“Still a crime to lie to us,” Comey told the House Oversight Committee.
FBI policy is not to record interviews as part of its investigations.
Yet the revelations will nonetheless raise questions among Republicans, who have been skeptical of the FBI’s investigation and have demanded to see the transcript of the former secretary of State’s interview in downtown Washington on Saturday.
