How is it Comey had the presence of mind to write down what he discussed with Trump BUT couldn’t be bothered about details with Mrs Clinton
The interview was meant to clear up Hillary Clinton’s involvement with numerous scandals, including her private email server, and alleged collusion with Libyan forces to create an unstable Middle East. According to James Comey, none of it was recorded.
Yet, somehow, Comey remembered to take notes on every single thing that Trump said—something he did not do for the Obama administration. Even after the DNC computers were “hacked,” Comey still did not speak to Democratic President at the time.
“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.”
Comey adds that it was “still a crime,” to lie to the FBI, although it’s FBI policy to avoid recording interviews, except under rare circumstances. Many lawmakers and citizens alike are unhappy, however, and have demanded to see the transcript of the former Secretary of State’s interview.
“…that’s a problem,” Representative John Mica of Florida says, in response to Comey not being able to produce a transcript of the interview with Clinton.
“It’s pretty clear…that the American people would like to see what Hillary CLinton said to the FBI,” Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said on Wednesday, a day before Comey’s appearance before House lawmakers.
CNN adds a list of “winners,” from Comey’s testimony, and is very quick to point out that Trump was repeatedly cast “as a liar.”
