The Comey Hearing — Updated

Watch it live here: CSPAN COMEY HEARING

“It’s possible that the Secretary of State didn’t know what the ‘C’ meant in an email.”

A reasonable person would draw the conclusion that a former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State didn’t know what a classified email looks like? Here’s Politico:

FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers on Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was not particularly “sophisticated” when it came to the treatment of classified information, despite the high level of sensitivity involved in her role.



Some of the hearing is laugh-out-loud worthy.  According to Jim Cooper, Democrat, Tennessee, said that Director Comey has a lifelong career of “speaking truth to power.”

Laugh or cry:


There are so many gems here but the FBI Director’s testimony strains credulity.

Here is Will Hurd, Republican from Texas:

No transcript. No recording. Not “under oath.”

Take home from the hearing:


Speaker Ryan seeks to rescind Secretary Clinton’s ability to have access to classified material.

Consequences of the FBI’s actions: others using the “Hillary Defense” to avoid prosecution for treating secure materials “carelessly.”
