Nadler: Comey Testimony 'Waste Of Time,' GOP Just Wants To Discredit Mueller

Fittingly, a GOP member of the committee spoke to the media afterwards about how Comey wouldn't answer questions, at the direction of legal counsel.

Comey resisted, arguing the GOP-led investigation in the decision-making by the FBI and the Justice Department in 2016 and 2017 was politically motivated.

The questions that are being asked at the hearing, which is expected to run through Friday afternoon, reportedly have to do with issues including reportedly political bias of Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, Comey's statement recommending no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, and how he allegedly wrote it before Clinton was interviewed, flexibility that the Justice Department reportedly had with regards to Clinton's advisers, and possibly also concerns that the Federal Bureau of Investigation may have abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court system.

Comey was asked on his way into the meeting room about President Trump's assertion that he is best friends with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the Russian Federation probe.

California Republican Darrell Issa said Comey had two lawyers in the room, his personal lawyer and a lawyer from the Justice Department.

Strzok defiantly fought with angry Republican lawmakers in a riveting hearing that featured Strzok reading aloud from his sometimes-lewd texts and Democrats openly yelling at their Republican counterparts. They have also urged their Republican counterparts to shield Mueller from any attempts by Trump or his newly-appointed acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, to impede the investigation.

"It's a waste of time to start with and there's nothing", said Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). "The entire objective of this investigation is to cast aspersion on the real investigation, which is Mueller".

He said in a Thanksgiving Day tweet that he may not appear if the interview is not conducted in a public setting.

The Republican chairman of the House's judiciary committee, Virginia Rep. Both Goodlatte and South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the chairman of the oversight panel, are also retiring at the end of the year.

Under a deal struck with the House Judiciary Committee, Comey will be free to speak about the questioning afterward and a transcript will be released.

A report released this June from the Justice Department's internal watchdog said Comey was "insubordinate" in his handling of the Clinton email investigation in the final months of the 2016 campaign.
