WHAT DID OBAMA KNOW? - Transcripts of former FBI Director James Comey's closed-door testimony before House Republicans has raised questions over how former President Barack Obama could have determined that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state didn't imperil national security if the FBI never briefed him on the investigation ... In a second meeting this month with lawmakers, Comey was asked about remarks Obama made during a “60 Minutes” interview in October 2015.
Obama said of the email matter that it wasn't "a situation in which America’s national security was endangered,” and that Clinton never appeared to hide anything. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., asked Comey if he had ever spoken with Obama about the Clinton email investigation, to which the ex-FBI chief replied, “No.” He said he never directed anyone at the bureau to do so either. - Reported by Paulina Dedaj
