Comey transcript reveals questions about 2016 campaign

Seventy-five percent would make Trump easily one of the most popular leaders on the planet

"The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersion on the real investigation, which is Mueller".

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.

Comey himself complained the proceedings were too focused on Clinton.

"The Department of Justice is going to have to agree to allow him to come back and answer a great many questions that now he is not answering", Issa added.

The U.S. president early Friday continued his social media assault on the actions the past two years of Comey, Mueller and what Trump perceives as unfair investigations.

He also played for the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants during five major league seasons. Jose's time with the Astros was brief, but he also had a positive impact on those around him.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., published the 235-page transcript as a part of an agreement with Comey. "There will be short-term damage, which worries me a great deal, but in the long run, no politician, no president can, in a lasting way, damage those institutions".

"I have total confidence that the FISA process was followed and that the entire case was handled in a thoughtful responsible way by DOJ and the FBI", Comey responded.

The report said the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who announced in July 2016 that Clinton had been "extremely careless" with classified material but would not be charged with any crime, repeatedly departed from normal Justice Department protocol. The hearing Friday represented an effort by House Republicans allied with President Trump to pin him down on issues important to them before Democrats take control of the majority in January. Comey had previously expressed displeasure over this idea, fearing "selective leaking" by Republicans.

Comey initially challenged the subpoena to appear before the committees and instead pressed for a public hearing out of concern his comments would be selectively leaked and taken out of context.

In fact, Comey said much of the dossier was unverified even when he was sacked by President Trump six months later.

He previously worked in the Canberra press gallery and recently finished a Masters of Journalism at Columbia University in NY . Analysts have speculated that the executive's arrest was linked to alleged violations of USA sanctions on Iran .

Comey also told investigators that the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation was not instigated by the so-called Steele dossier, an intelligence report by former British spy Christopher Steele that makes unverified allegations against Trump.

Comey, who appeared under subpoena, announced after the meeting that he would return for more questioning December 17.

Comey resisted the calls to appear for a hearing while insisting that it be made public.

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a review of the email investigation on June 14.
