Expect Two Wildly Different Stories After James Comey's House Testimony

"We could have done this in open setting", Comey said, because "we're talking again about Hillary Clinton's emails for Heaven's sake".

"I'm not sure we need to do this at all".

Issa added that Comey complied with "gleeful acceptance", saying, "The Department of Justice is going to have to agree to allow him to come back and answer a great many questions that now he is not answering".

"The president's attacks on the Justice Department broadly and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are something that - no matter what political party you're in - you should find deeply troubling", Comey said.

Even while the questioning was still underway, GOP lawmakers were telling reporters that "they weren't satisfied and might try to bring him back another day", the AP reported. He declared that the strategy "will make no difference because facts are stubborn things". "The Democrats' political position has always been that the investigation of the investigators is a distraction and something that's being concocted in order to undermine the credibility of Mueller's investigation". President Trump's campaign chairman, top campaign aide, former national security advisor and longtime personal attorney are all cooperating in the inquiry, which the president calls a "witch hunt". Prosecutors recommended Friday that Cohen, who previously pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, should be sentenced to about four years in prison.

He said Democrats can shut the investigation down, but President Trump has the ability to order the release of all documents and information gathered in the probe.

His testimony was originally delayed after Comey filed a legal challenge, stating he anxious Republicans would selectively leak only parts of the deposition.

Trump later tweeted: "Comey was told by Department of Justice attorneys not to answer the most important questions".

On Twitter, President Trump decried what he called "total bias and corruption at the highest levels of previous Administration".

"I'm still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions".

While it was uncertain if Comey spoke under oath Friday, lying to Congress is a crime under any circumstance.

"That's a very teeny part of what we talked about - a whole lot of Hillary Clinton emails, which will bore you", he said.
