(Gateway Pundit) – Fired FBI Chief James Comey testified before Congress in a closed session on Friday.
Comey brought in a DOJ attorney who demanded Comey not reply to dozens of questions because they were related to ‘ongoing investigations.’
Literally hundreds of times the FBI leaker and former chief claimed during his testimony that he didn’t remember events that several events that were suspect or criminal. This was quite odd considering Comey wrote a book about these subjects after his firing.
Comey told Congressional investigators:
** “I don’t recall” — 8 times
** “I don’t remember” — 71 times
** “I don’t know” — 166 times
** AND he said he didn’t know that Christopher Steele was passing information to Bruce Ohr, who was giving it to the FBI.
“I don’t recall”—8 times
“I don’t remember”—71 times
“I don’t know”—166 times
AND he said he didn’t know that
Christopher Steele was passing information to Bruce Ohr, who was giving it to the FBI.

As we reported earlier—
Unfortunately for Comey, the Hill reported earlier in the week that a long email chain was uncovered that the Republican House members added to the list of documents they would like President Trump to un-classify and release to the American public.
Former FBI Director James Comey is reportedly in this long email chain which is dated October of 2016 – just before the FBI obtained its first FISA warrant on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
“If these documents are released, the American public will have clear and convincing evidence to see the FISA warrant that escalated the Russia probe just before Election Day was flawed and the judges (were) misled,” one knowledgeable source told John Solomon.
1. The FBI acknowledged in the emails there were intelligence community concerns about the Steele dossier before they secured a FISA warrant.
2. The FBI knew Steele was talking to the media before they obtained a FISA warrant.
This is significant because the FBI has maintained for the last two years that they fired Christopher Steele after they obtained the FISA warrant after finding out he violated FBI protocol by speaking to the media.
The FBI used Michael Isikoff’s Yahoo News article as a source to corroborate the Steele dossier when presenting evidence to the FISC. If they knew Steele was Isikoff’s source, the FBI is guilty of circular intelligence reporting which of course is against protocol. They presented the two sources as independent which means they defrauded the FISC.
When Comey signed off on the FISA warrant request to the FISA Court to obtain a legal basis to spy on Carter Page and President Trump he lied to the court.
The FISA request had the following caption about Steele’s work in it – “the FBI is unaware of any derogatory information pertaining to Source #1 [Steele].”
If that’s true then isn’t this a lie👇oops pic.twitter.com/reaQOOhEug

Incompetence is not a defense for forwarding the FISA Court a phony dossier as rationale to spy on the Trump campaign. Neither is ignorance –
Inside the FBI, ignorance is not a substitute for competence. Nor is the expression of moral superiority a substitute for lawfulness. And unverified dossiers are not an acceptable form of verified evidence in a FISA submission.

Fortunate for American justice there is evidence corrupt Comey and his gang of Deep State operatives knew the bogus FISA warrant application to spy on candidate and then President Trump was a fraud. Comey covered up Hillary’s crimes but he couldn’t cover up his own!
