Comey, who was subpoenaed, spoke to the GOP-led House judiciary and oversight and government reform committees for almost seven hours behind closed doors, later telling reporters that they were "talking again about Hillary Clinton's emails, for heaven's sakes".
"And then what gets done with it at that point, we'll see", McCarthy said.
"The Department of Justice is going to have to agree to allow [Comey] to come back and answer a great many questions that now he is not answering", Issa said.
It a series of tweets early Friday, the president blasted Comey and the Mueller probe into Russia's hacking of the 2016 us national election.
Democrats, who will also attend the interview, have said the GOP investigation is merely a way to distract from and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.
Comey also revealed that he will appear again before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees on December 17 to answer more questions.
According to a statement from Gowdy's Office, Comey answered "I don't remember" 71 times, "I don't know" 166 times and "I don't recall" eight times. "There is no evidence whatsoever of bias at the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any other of this nonsense they are talking about".Читайте также: Man coughs up massive blood clot shaped like bronchial tree
Under a deal struck with the Judiciary Committee, Comey was to be free to speak about Friday's questioning afterward and a transcript was to be released.
The president has repeatedly blasted Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt", and on Friday unleashed a Twitter tirade against Mueller, Comey and other current and former officials tied to the Russian Federation probe. "In looking back at our investigations into the mishandling or removal of classified information, we can not find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts".
Comey's testimony will likely be one of the last sessions conducted by the judiciary and oversight panels this year. The investigation's most public day was a 10-hour hearing in which former FBI special agent Peter Strzok defended anti-Trump texts he sent to a colleague as he helped lead both investigations.
"The Senate could continue to investigate it, even if the Democrats won't investigate it in the House".
But Comey would not sit idle and have his testimony, which will be made public via a transcript, "twisted in that way".
He added that the Justice Department inspector general's investigation into these matters is looming over all of this.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
