Judge Nap: Mueller Will Conduct 'Interrogation' Under Oath of Pres. Trump

Comey Says He Asked Friend to Share Memos on Trump Talks With Reporter


Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) questioned former FBI Director James Comey on why there have been no leaks from inside the government about the fact that President Trump is not personally under investigation. 

Earlier in the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Comey said Trump did not ask him to end the Russia investigation as a whole. He also said he believed he was fired by Trump because of the Russia investigation. 

Rubio marveled at how many leaks have occurred during the Trump-Russia investigation, saying "we've learned more from the newspapers sometimes than we do from our open hearings."

"Do you ever wonder why, of all the things in this investigation, the only thing that's never been leaked is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation, despite the fact that Democrats and Republicans and the leadership of Congress knew that and have known that for weeks?" he asked. 

Comey answered that classified briefings to Congress on such matters are "pretty tightly held."
