67. I agree.

I think he was in on the plot all along and that totally explains his lame ass lies about hiding actual proven info on drumpf while instead promoting untrue lies damaging to clinton. That may also be why he still has a job, it's a pre-condition and that's why he's so pro-drumpf. He's also, we should never forget, a Repug first and foremost and fbi only later. His actions prove that.

I really fear for us, the corruption has happened and we are going down by plan, then the whole world dies as Russia unleashes uninhibited agression against Ukraine and who knows how many other countries?

9. Franken Got Right To The Crux Of The Issue And I Felt That He Asked The Most Biting Questions.....

One question that this interchange made me ask is:

Can the FBI secure Trump's tax records in their investigation?

I know Comey did not want to answer Franken's question about Trump's taxes - but in reality can the FBI get access to them?

If there is a possibility that they can get access to Trump's taxes - If I were Trump I'd be really freaked right now.

But you rushed out--11days before the election-- to comment on what you were looking at re Hillary, before you even knew exactly what you had. Which gave us this shitstorm of an administration.

38. You catch the bullshit Trump talking point from Comey?

When Al asked him why Putin favored Trump, Comey said it was because Trump "was a businessman," so Putin thought he could "make deals" with him, unlike "someone who had always been in government" like Hillary, who Putin hated.

WTF?! Does he really expect us to believe that?!

It was not because Trump was a businessman. Putin thought he could make deals with Trump because Trump is corrupt, will do anything for a buck, plus Putin had kompromat on Trump.

Comey is a lying sack of shit.

Really gave him a new arena to play in. And he did a terrific job! You discovered a whole new Al Franken than the edgy-funny guy on SNL. And you couldn't help but respect him. I think that helped him make the transition from his previous career to the next one - that he holds, now.

78. No. If you read between the lines, Comey is in fact saying he can't comment on it BECAUSE IT'S UNDER

INVESTIGATION! Which means they have and are looking at his tax returns!

This maligning of Comey is only helping Trump team.

Newsflash: corrupt Giuliani would have leaked the re-opening of Clinton's email investigation, so Comey had to head him off at the pass, or risk looking like he was covering up.

Newsflash 2: Comey tried to go public with TrumpRussia in the summer, but Obama admin stopped him.

Jesus, I can't believe the misinformation being spread. It would be very bad to scuttle Comey's investigation.

74. Comey answered as required by law, but Franken publicly aired the most damning aspects of

Trump's connection to Russia, and the importance of "following the money", including Trump's tax returns. I doubt Comey would be such a stickler for refusing to talk about anything related to the investigation if the subject of the investigation was Clinton.

Very interesting.

Hillary grew up in government? Lots of the criticism of her is about her business experience – board of Walmart, investments, etc.

What a weasel. He “does not know” if Donald’s tax returns would help show any connections to the Russians. He’s not going to answer. And he won’t tell whether the investigation has access to Donald’s taxes.

Newsflash: corrupt Giuliani would have leaked the re-opening of Clinton's email investigation, so Comey had to head him off at the pass, or risk looking like he was covering up.

Newsflash 2: Comey tried to go public with TrumpRussia in the summer, but Obama admin stopped him.

Jesus, I can't believe the misinformation being spread. It would be very bad to scuttle Comey's investigation.

80. I didnt ever say to stop his investigation.

And you are right that maligning him is helping them.

If we know for certain the terrorist Rudy Giuliani would have done that, if we KNOW that, then OK...do we?

Convince me of that and I will change my tune big time. I want to be wrong.

81. Giuliani's law firm had ties to the NY FBI field office.

Days before Comey sent the letter, which Chaffetz made public, Giuliani was crowing to Fox News that there was a 'big surprise' coming.

In the next two days, Giuliani told Fox News’s Martha MacCallum, then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would reveal “a surprise or two.”

“I’m talking about some pretty big surprise,” he said.

Two days later, Comey sent a letter to Congress, revealing the Clinton matter — which the FBI had earlier recommended be closed without charges — was back on.

Democrats were furious. Did Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney and New York mayor whose former law firm represents the FBI Agents Association, have law enforcement sources who told him what was coming? Reps. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) and John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) called on the Justice Department inspector general to investigate.


Full article here. Giuliani was leaking, and that was hinted at in the hearing the other day.
