Former FBI director James Comey blasted House Republicans on Monday after exiting what he described as a “frustrating” closed-door hearing — his second Capitol Hill appearance this month where he was called to answer questions on the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes.
“Someday, they’ll have to explain to their grandchildren what they did today,” a defiant Comey said of the Republicans on the two House committees that conducted the interview, accusing them of not defending the FBI from President Trump’s attacks.
Republicans, for their part, have accused Comey of not being forthcoming. He was called back to Capitol Hill after an appearance in early December in which he repeatedly claimed not to know or remember the answers to numerous questions. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told reporters he was not satisfied with Comey’s answers on Monday, either.
……Asked by Fox News’ Catherine Herridge if he bears any responsibility for the FBI’s reputation taking a hit, he responded, “No.”
Speaking to reporters after the hearing, Comey called it “frustrating to be here.” He dismissed the questions from lawmakers, including over the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email investigation and the anti-Trump dossier authored by Chris Steele, as old news.
“The questions about Hillary Clinton and Steele dossier strike me as more of the same,” Comey said. “I didn’t learn anything new in there. Maybe they did.”
Lashing out at Republicans, Comey also called for them to stand up to the “fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets” and “stand up for the values of this country.”
James Comey refuses to deny that he leaked classified information.

Flynn gets indicted for having a legal convo with the Russian ambassador, I get indicted for a meeting with a western intelligence asset, Joseph Mifsud, masquerading as a Russian middleman whose own lawyer says was working for the FBI. What a waste of time and money.

Comey’s narcissism was on full display. A former FBI agent said that he bears full culpability for his damage to the FBI:
“The last thing that 38,000 dedicated professional men and women of the FBI , honest men and women of the FBI, need is Jim Comey using them as a shield for his misconduct and his bad acts while he was briefly director of the FBI. He’s been a big disappointment and he has made the job of every street FBI agent harder because of his statements and his obvious partisanship…..”He’ll go down as the person that did the most damage to the FBI in its 120 year history”.

Comey could not remember, could not recall and wasn’t sure over 200 times, but remembered enough to write a book.
Comey, who is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg, was part and parcel of the conspiracy to undermine the election and overthrow a duly elected president though false accusations and sedition. He also leaked classified information when it suited his purpose and lied to the FISA court.
If there was any real dedication to “stand up for the values of this country”, that douche would be in an orange jumpsuit by now.
