Comey exasperated after closed-door interview on Capitol Hill

Former FBI Director James Comey, after facing aggressive questioning from members of Congress on Friday, expressed exasperation that he had been dragged to a private setting on Capitol Hill to be asked questions about the Hillary Clinton email investigation that ended more than two years ago.

“After a full day of questioning, two things are clear to me: One, we could have done this in (an) open setting,” said Comey in a news conference with reporters. “And two: When you read the transcript, you will see that we are talking again about Hillary Clinton’s emails, for heaven’s sakes.”

“So I’m not sure we need to do this at all, but I’m trying to respect the institution and to answer questions in a respectful way,” he added.
