Justice Won't Allow FBI Officials to Speak to Senate Panel

White House pushes back against Steve Bannon

The two-term senator from NY blames former primary opponent Bernie Sanders, Russia's attempted interventions and then-FBI Director James Comey's last-minute reopening of a probe into her emails, among others.

"I think there is no secret Comey by his own self-admission leaked privileged government information weeks before President Trump fired him".

She said it's not President Trump's role but a decision for the Department of Justice.

"Anybody that breaks the law, whatever that process is that needs to be followed, should certainly be looked at", Sanders said. I didn't hear you say that again today.

Sanders was reminded of President Trump's campaign promise to provide "insurance for everyone", and responded by doubling down on her rhetoric. "She was talking about the president's decision to end Comey's employment with the Federal Bureau of Investigation...the legality is something for others to sort out". The senators subsequently agreed to limit the scope of their request, reiterating that they had questions about Comey's firing, but were rebuffed by DOJ.

Comey was subsequently fired by Trump in May, a decision that former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has described as one of the worst mistakes in modern political history.

"I can't think of a single time where he made a deal with anyone from the opposite side, from beyond the Democrat Party". Every day that I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me and I couldn't bear the idea of letting them down.

Clinton waved to supporters and chatted as she signed copies of her new book. Yesterday, when you were talking about James Comey, you mentioned that he gave false testimony.

Trump has complained that Comey let Clinton off the hook past year when the FBI closed an investigation into the handling of classified information on the private email server Clinton used as secretary of state.

"I'm just hoping that as the months go forward, we can go back to doing that", Clinton said. "When I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made up story", he told NBC's Lester Holt May 11.
