James Comey says he was questioned about Hillary Clinton’s emails in 6-hour interview

The House Judiciary Committee made the document public on Saturday, just 24 hours after privately grilling the fired FBI chief about investigative decisions related to Hillary Clinton’s email server and President Donald Trump’s campaign.

The transcript was released under an agreement with Comey, who challenged a subpoena from the committee in court and pressed for an open hearing out of concerns his comments would be selectively leaked.

The Republican-led committee has said it wanted to interview Comey as part of its investigation into FBI actions during the 2016 presidential election. That year, the FBI recommended against criminal charges for Clinton and opened an investigation into potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.
