Trump: Comey Told 245 Lies During Friday’s Congressional Testimony

December 8, 2018 3:17 pm  

(Zero Hedge) – Republican lawmakers weren’t the only ones who were frustrated by former FBI Director James Comey’s repeated refusals to answer questions or provide further details – or his assertions that he simply couldn’t recall – during his closed-door testimony before members of the House on Friday.

Following the release of the full transcript from Comey’s testimony last night, President Trump lashed out against the former FBI director whom Trump summarily fired a few months in to his administration, accusing Comey of lying when he said he couldn’t remember certain details or otherwise refused to answer questions (something Comey did, on the advice of a DOJ attorney, 245 times during the course of his marathon testimony). Furthermore, Trump said Comey lied when he said he didn’t know Christopher Steele (the former UK intelligence agent who assembled the infamous Steele dossier) and that he didn’t know who had signed off on investigations into four unnamed Trump campaign officials.

Comey was “so untruthful”, Trump said, that he might have “set a record” for the number of times a witness lied to Congress during official testimony. Hist testimony is the latest sign that the Russia probe is a “rigged fraud” launched by “dishonest people” who would “do anything so that I would not become president.”

“They are now exposed!,” Trump said.

Last night, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan tweeted out a more detailed breakdown of Comey’s deceitfulness.
