Comey Under Oath: ‘Have Not Experienced Any Requests to Stop FBI Investigations’

Written by  Penny Starr

The debate about former FBI Director James Comey’s alleged memo about President Donald Trump’s attempt to stop the agency’s investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn showed up on Twitter Wednesday. A reporter tweeted that Comey denied any interference in the agency’s investigations while under oath at a Senate hearing earlier this month.

Jack Posobiec, Washington Bureau Chief for The Rebel.media, tweeted about it on Wednesday.

Although Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) didn’t specifically ask about Trump in the question she posed to Comey, the inquiry was about whether or not he had experienced having a higher authority stop an FBI investigation.

“So if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?” Hirono asked.

“In theory yes,” Comey answered.

“Has it happened? Hirono asked.

“Not in my experience,” Comey responded. “Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose.”

Under oath!!! Comey should be brought up on charges - if such request had happened, it is required that Comey should immediately go to DOJ and report it - OR he could be charged with obstruction!

Comey better remember what he has said in the past . That Trump didn't try to interfere or ask him to stop the investigation . And if they come back with something it better be run through 47 others because it will be a lie !!

Literally, is the president classified as a 'senior official at the DOJ'? That is the context of the question asked of Comey. I can't find the answer. I mean I know the DOJ is part of the exec branch.

Watched a 60 minutes interview with Comey last Sunday. It was a re-run from 2014. He appears to be an extremely honest man with lots of integrity. It's a shame how the media is going after him and Trump and lots of others. Get the media to take some lie-detector tests. Let's see if they can pass. Or do they all believe their own lies? Let's investigate the media for lies and slander.

The night Trump won the election the left started their conspiracy to impeach him. All the media that attack him daily are tied to Obama, the fifth column in the government cabinet jobs are tied to Obama, the Susan Ruce illegal release of classified information is tied to Obama, the Clinton cover up was tied to Obama, and now the hidden government's sits only a mile plus from the White House plotting with co-conspirators the destruction of a newly elected President. No one not even the GOP requested a special investigator/ prosecutor in the Obama destruction of evidence in the CIA, and Clinton investigations? Why does Obama get a free pass and assholes like Represenative Green telling us he seeks justice? We wanted justice for eight years and black conhgressional Caucas ignored us, the democrats ignored us, and the GOP leaders ignored us. Where was our justice when Senator Cummings tied to the IRS scandal did all he could to obstruct and stop the questioning? Impeach Trump before you have any proof of wrong doings and build shrines to a pathological liar, operetta good plan the liberals carry?

We have to remember what the Muslim FRAUD promised the brain washed at that speech 2008.I will "fundamentally change America" and these brain less idiots were ecstatic.The Communists/Democrats are dead set on destruction and making America a totalitarian state run by these CRIMINALS.Destroy our economy and facilitate a Islam take over.The so called Democrat party of today is a CRIME SYNDICATE bigger than any mafia or drug cartel

If Comey says there had been no request for interference in the FBI investigation, why is all of this taking place per leaks. Of course, this is all a set up to distract from the real issues. It also is to try & take President Trump off his message, enflame more hate for Trump & keep his agenda from going forward.

He MAY have, he COULD have....... now let your imagination do the rest. Convict and impeach on MAY and COULD, not on hard factual evidence of any crime having been committed. Yes they are at it again! The masters of deception ....the Democrats and their Liberal allies, the crooked news media!

just another way to waste tax payers money . why not investigate Obama who never should have been our
president, or continue to convict Hillary. We finally have a man we elected as our President of the United States
of America and he is trying to do the job he was elected for, and has to deal with the crap that the Democrats are
drumming up because they do not have the power to continue to waste even more money and line their pockets by
taking away from the working AMERICANS. Lets continue to pray for President Trump, his family, staff, and also for those
Democrats they come back to reality, and for the fake media to STOP reporting fake News and Lies that have no
grounds, lets go after those that have done damage to America and prosecute them and jail them. President Trump continue
to drain the swamp, and pass limits that politicians can serve, also without continued income from having served, and their
secret service and staff. The working American's in other fields don't get that kind of income, only a pension they paid into and their
Social Security, which all should pay into not just the common folks but all POLITICIANS too.
