Sen. McCain: Diamondbacks to blame for confusing questions to Comey
Sen. McCain: Diamondbacks to blame for confusing questions to Comey
09 June, 2017, 01:59
But several of his questions confused viewers, and seemingly Comey himself, and he occasionally was incoherent. A lot of questions focused on the written statementhe provided yesterday, in which Comey detailed his uncomfortable conversations with the president.
"I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people's heads", McCain said in a statement issued Thursday afternoon. "Yet at the same time, in the case of Mr. (Trump), you said that there was not enough information to make a conclusion". In other words, the investigation of anything that former Secretary Clinton had to do with the campaign is over and we don't have to worry about it anymore? Comey said the meddling began when heasked Lynch whether she planned on authorizing him to confirm that there was an open investigation into Clinton.
This investigation was under way - still going when I was sacked. This investigation was going on. "You reached separate conclusions", McCain said. He rambled for a long time about the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton, which ended last July, and seemed to try to connect it with the current Russian Federation probe.
That's when it got really weird.
When asked why he did not object to this request, Comey said he thought, "This isn't a hill worth dying on, and so I just said, 'Okay.' The press is going to completely ignore it - and that's what happened".
Al-Shabab claims killing 61 in attack on base in Somalia Al-Shabaab militants captured a town in Somalia's semi-autonomous Puntland region on Thursday, a senior official said. Af Urur lies about 100 km (60 miles) south of Bosaso, near the Galgala hills, an area controlled by al Shabaab .
"So both President Trump and former candidate Clinton are both involved in the investigation, yet one of them you said there are going to be no charges, and the other one the investigation continues. Well, I think there's a double standard there, to tell you the truth".
The Arizona Republican, serving his sixth term in the Senate, seemed to conflate the investigation of Clinton's emails and the investigation of possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
One netizen stated plainly that McCain's performance was "sad", as he "can't distinguish between the Clinton email investigation and Trump/Russia investigation". Was he arguing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation applied different standards to the two candidates?
As perhaps should have been expected, the most important takeaway from Comey's testimony may be what he didn't say.
McCain's meandering back-and-forth with Comey became a distraction on a very busy day. So you reached a conclusion in the case of Mr. Comey, President Comey - excuse me, the case of Mr. Trump, you have an ongoing investigation.
