But yeah, everything was above board. Not.
Rep. Matt Gaetz blasted James Comey for having “selective amnesia” during his closed-door testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
The former FBI director spent six hours Friday testifying before lawmakers on a range of topics, including his handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe, the genesis of the Russia investigation and alleged bias at the bureau.
On “The Story” Friday, Gaetz (R-Fla.) said he was particularly interested in Comey’s responses to questions about his June 2017 conversation with President Trump, in which Comey believes Trump may have obstructed justice by referencing the Michael Flynn investigation.
“As soon as Comey’s done with the president, he prepares a memo and then meets with his senior team at the FBI. He couldn’t tell us who was in the room, who was out of the room,” Gaetz said, adding that Comey also did not share what senior officials like Andrew McCabe or Bill Priestap thought of the possible obstruction.
