Jim Comey Testifies before Congress

The Senate Intelligence Committee calls Jim Comey to testify.

Comey was asked several questions that we talk about:

COTTON (R-AR)
Let’s turn our attention to the underlying activity at issue here: Russia’s hacking into those e-mails and releasing them, and the allegations of collusion. Do you believe Donald Trump colluded with Russia?
COMEY
That’s a question I don’t think I should answer in an open setting.

And:

HARRIS (D-CA)
Are you aware of any efforts by Trump campaign officials or associates of the campaign to hide their communications with Russian officials through encrypted communications or other means?
COMEY
I have to give you same answer, Senator.

Finally, everyone’s favorite Arizona Senator:

MCCAIN (R-AZ)
Are you aware of anything that would lead you to believe that information exists that could coerce members of the administration or blackmail the administration?
COMEY
That’s not a question I can answer, Senator.
