Gowdy: 'Saint James' Comey thinks he 'gets to write the moral script'

Former FBI Director James Comey said Thursday during a CNN town hall that "it sure looks like" that there is enough evidence to prosecute US President Trump for obstruction of justice based on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.

Comey was speaking at a public forum two years after Trump had fired him, citing his handling of the probe into former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

The investigations on the origins of the Russian Federation probe intensified after a newly-released document showing the apparent political purposes of Christopher Steele's dossier surfaced.

During the CNN town hall, Comey, 58, spoke on a broad range of topics, including whether he would ever run for office and his thoughts on the results of the Mueller investigation.

In releasing a summary of the report in late March, Attorney General William Barr said he would not pursue an obstruction of justice charge against the president.

Comey said that while Strzok was a "very talented agent", his text messages "hurt the institution".

According to the notes, Steele reportedly told Kavalec that he "keen to see this information (the dossier) come to light prior to November 8", the date of the 2016 presidential election.

"In the press conference, Trump claimed Mueller is, "...in love with James Comey. Mueller, he said, was "somebody that is in love with James Comey", and implied he had an axe to grind because of a business dispute with him.

"FBI employees must tell the truth always", Comey told Cooper, seemingly referring to McCabe. That, they said, would contradict what the Federal Bureau of Investigation had said when it used his unverified information to help win a secret surveillance warrant against one-time Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

"And if they don't, I don't care what it's about, it's going to be investigated, and there will be severe consequences".
