Ex-FBI director Comey grilled again in US Congress

As Mueller investigation heats up, Trump unleashes barrage of tweets attacking investigators

The House Judiciary Committee made the document public on Saturday, just 24 hours after privately grilling the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief about investigative decisions related to Hillary Clinton's email server and Trump's campaign.

When asked if the FBI had any evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign conspired to hack the DNC server, Comey gave a long-winded answer referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation as to why he couldn't answer.

Mr Trump tweeted: "Robert Mueller and Leakin' Lyin' James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest".

"I think the notion that FISA was abused here is nonsense", Comey said, referring to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that governs use of electronic surveillance by federal law enforcement.

Former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify Friday, in private, before the House Judiciary Committee regarding the bureau's Hillary Clinton email investigation and the ongoing Russian Federation inquiry.

Comey had originally demanded that any interview before the joint panel of House Judiciary Committee and Oversight and Government Reform Committee members be conducted in public to avoid selective leaks.

Comey had resisted answering questions privately, but struck a deal with Republicans that will see a transcript of the testimony published 24 hours after his interview.

After Comey's testimony, which is expected to continue on 17 December, some Republicans suggested he should have been more cooperative.

The interview comes as GOP lawmakers wrap up a yearlong investigation into decisions made at the Justice Department during the 2016 presidential election. Republicans argue that department officials were biased against Trump as they started the investigation and cleared Clinton in a separate probe into her email use.

President Trump has dismissed Mueller's Russian Federation investigation as a "witch hunt".

"I was left with the impression that, basically, this is a big wild goose chase", said Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.), The Atlantic reported. Comey was in charge of both investigations. "But I'm trying to respect the institution and to answer questions in a respectful way".

"The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersion on the real investigation, which is Mueller", Nadler told reporters outside Comey's testimony.

"The Senate could continue to investigate it, even if the Democrats won't investigate it in the House".

"The FBI attorney is not engaging any more or any less than what she has done in previous transcribed interviews", Meadows, a Trump ally, said.

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a review of the email investigation on June 14.
