WASH­ING­TON — House Repub­li­cans in­ter­viewed James Comey be­hind closed doors Fri­day, haul­ing the for­mer FBI di­rec­tor to Capi­tol Hill one fi­nal time be­fore they cede power to Democrats in Jan­uary. GOP law­mak­ers who stepped out­side while the ques­tion­ing was un­der­way in­di­cated they weren't sat­is­fied and will bring him back later this month.

Comey wasn't pleased ei­ther, telling re­porters, “We're talk­ing about Hil­lary Clin­ton's emails, for heaven's sake, so I'm not sure we needed to do this at all.”

Repub­li­cans say Comey and other Jus­tice Depart­ment of­fi­cials were bi­ased against Trump as they in­ves­ti­gated his cam­paign's ties with Rus­sia in 2016 and cleared Clin­ton in a sep­a­rate probe into her email use. pop­u­lar and has strong bi­par­ti­san sup­port. It will also help a lot of peo­ple, save tax­payer dol­lars, and keep our com­mu­ni­ties safe. Go for it Mitch!”
