"The one thing that I can tell you today that surprised me is that under Trey Gowdy's questioning and John Ratcliffe's, it was the Justice Department, meaning that the FBI attorney who's in there with him, that time and time again, I think to his pleasure, told him not to answer question after question, fundamental to the investigations that brought him there", Issa said.

The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Virginia Rep. Robert Goodlatte, decried Comey's use of "baseless litigation" and called it an "attempt to run out the clock on this Congress", a reference to the few weeks left before Democrats take control. A transcript of the interview with members of the House Judiciary Committee will be released as soon as possible, perhaps in the next 24 hours.
