Listen: FBI, Justice Department And Hillary Clinton discussed on Washington Today
"FBI director James Comey spent the day in a closed-door meeting with house members in the continuing investigation related to the two thousand sixteen election Russian interference and Hillary Clinton's emails James Comey spoke with reporters after. I was going to try and sneak by you. Back back. Okay. I'm coming back. We've scheduled today to come back in the seventeenth after a full day of questioning things are clear to me one. We could have done this an open setting and two when you read the transcript, you will see that. We're talking again about Hillary Clinton's emails take. So I'm not sure do this at all. I'm trying to respect the institution and to answer questions in a respectful way. You'll see that in the transcript you'll see that. If you get a transcript of my return visit which I think will be week after next. And then this will be over. New york. The new attorney general nominee served as attorney general. The last time you have confidence that he can act with impartiality if he's confirmed for this. I like him respect Bill bar. I know he's an 'institutionalised cares deeply about the integrity of the Justice department. So I'm sure he'll use the standard career resources. He has the judge what he should be in what he should be involved in. But Bill bar is a talented person. Who was a good attorney general the first time I liked him very much. Then I think he'll serve the Justice department. And I'm sure he'll talk to the fish. Extensively you the Muller investigation. At this point. I can't talk about that. Have you register? About that Republicans came out and said government, lawyers interference and. Check out specific lines of punishment. Did that happen? And if so what topics? Read the transcript, and I think you will not see that happening. Civic, topics. We still feel like you can't discuss from your time FBI director Horford for year and a half. Now. What can't you answer? Well, the FBI for understandable reasons doesn't want me talking about the details of the investigation that is still ongoing and began when I was FBI director. And so it makes sense if they don't want to going into those details, but that's a very tiny part of what we talked about a whole lot of Hillary Clinton's emails, which will more you. You're okay. What's next? Next time. Here will be very tough. Wasn't they talking about? I think they want to do with the same way. I wish it we're going to be public. But I think we're gonna have to do it the same way. Again, you said you're okay with the our nomination give concerns about the firing of Jeff Sessions and the president continuing going after just sessions for not recusing himself. The president's attacks on the Justice department broadly, and the FBI are something that no matter what political party you're in. You should find deeply troubling and continue to speak out about not become numb to the tax. The firing session specifically I can come in. John Major Republican photo competence. Used to secure warranty after the subsequent. Total confidence that the process was followed. And that the entire case was handling awful responsible way by DOJ and the FBI. I think the notion that Pfizer was abused. Here is nonsense. Citizen. How do you think about Muller's investigation? As a private citizen is someone who knows the Justice system. I see if preceding incredibly quickly and very very professionally. Most important indication of that is you don't anything about it, except when he filed something in court, and that's the way it should be prepared to return next year when Democrats regained control of congress has perhaps on the questions of obstruction of Justice impeachment case, I always want respect institution of congress. I'd love it. If they didn't want me to testify, but if they want me to testify, and we can do it in a responsible way, I will abide it. So we'll see what happens, you know, anything about rod Rosenstein, very come up. Join your weekend mortgage. Former FBI."
