Comey Admitted Under Oath That Obstruction To FBI Probe ‘Never Happened’
Comey, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 3, said — under oath — that he’s never been pressured to close an investigation for political purposes.
“Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something like that — without an appropriate purpose.”
“I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that ‘We don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it.’ But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason.”
“That would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience,” Comey told the senators.
