McCain says his confusing questions resulted from tiredness

Comey 'confused' by order to refer to Clinton email probe as a 'matter' Hillary Clinton Email Investigation Gave James Comey 'Queasy Feeling'
Andrew Cummings | 10 June, 2017, 17:39

Following the Senate hearing for former FBI Director James Comey Thursday, Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit shared some of his reactions. "Maybe going forward I shouldn't stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games". "I wanted Mr. Comey to apply the same approach to the key question surrounding his interactions with President Trump - whether or not the president's conduct constitutes obstruction of justice", McCain said in the statement.

Let me go back, if I can, very briefly, to the decision to publicly go out with your results on the e-mail. The investigation into Russia's meddling in the election and any possible collusion with elements of the Trump campaign is still ongoing.

"Never", he said. "I used the word investigation all the time".

"And in fact, according to Mr. Comey, the president told Mr. Comey "it would be good to find out" in that investigation if there were "some "satellite" associates of his who did something wrong, '" he said". "Yet at the same time, in the case of Mr. (Trump), you said that there was not enough information to make a conclusion".

Apple wants to rock the market with HomePod, faces challenges
Unfortunately, Siri is tied to Apple Music , which means that Spotify and Amazon Prime Music aren't available (at least for now). The HomePod , Apple Music and Siri deliver the best music experience in the home that streams ad-free directly to the HomePod .

Comey looked puzzled as McCain pursued a line of questioning that seemed to tie the FBI investigation into Russian Federation and election meddling with the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Comey told reporters he recommended no criminal charges be brought against Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information in emails when she was secretary of state. "I was sacked in some way to change, or the endeavor was to change, the way the Russian Federation investigation was being conducted".

MCCAIN: "That investigation have any involvement of Secretary Clinton or any of her associates is completed?"

But several of his questions confused viewers, and seemingly Comey himself, and occasionally became incoherent. John Cornyn, R-Texas, Sen. I think you've been cast as a hero or a villain depending on the - whose political ox is being gored at many different times during the course of the Clinton e-mail investigation, and even - even now, perhaps. "You reached separate conclusions", McCain said. "R$3 epeatedly, and up to the day he was sacked, Comey says there is no evidence that led to an investigation of Donald Trump". McCain conflated the Hillary email server scandal with the investigation of Russia's hacking of the DNC.

The forensic nature of Comey's contemporarily written memos which he released the day before, coupled with the calm, confident and measured demeanor in which he delivered his verbal evidence laid out a clear and compelling case that President Donald J. Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice.
