On May 3rd, James Comey confirmed – under oath – that he has “Not been pressured to close an investigation for political purposes,” in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, because he says, “It would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something like that – without an appropriate purpose.
“I mean, where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason. That would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience.”
