Chris Wallace: There's Nothing Factually New in James Comey's Book, But It's Notable For "How Bitchy" It Is | Main | Comey: Why No, I Didn't Tell the Sitting President the "Intel" I Was Briefing on Was Financed By Hillary Clinton; OIG Report on McCabe Released

James Comey Refused to Answer Most of Congress' Questions, But Answered All of ABCNews' Question to Promote His Quickie Cash-In Book

Jesus wears a bracelet that reads "What Would Jim Comey Do?"

Jesus Christ? Jim Comey? JC?

Come on, people. Do I have to draw a line connecting the two dots?

Amid all the tantalizing promotional material, one line in the Axios report stood out. "Comey answered every question," it said. Among the questions featured in the Stephanopoulos commercial: "Are there things that you know but haven't said that could damage to President Trump?" and "Was President Trump obstructing justice?"

Comey's promised openness is particularly tantalizing for some congressional investigators who have been trying unsuccessfully to get Comey to answer questions in the months since he was fired....

On May 26, the Senate Judiciary Committee's top two Republicans and top two Democrats... wrote Comey again. "Given our role in considering the nomination of the next FBI director, the still unanswered questions from your last oversight hearing, and our role in oversight of the Justice Department and the FBI, your testimony will be essential to our constitutional duties," they wrote. Specifically, the lawmakers wanted to know as much as they could find out about Comey's memos.

On June 1, Comey sent a brief response. "I have received the letter," he wrote the committee. "As a private citizen now, I respectfully decline to answer the questions. Wishing you the best, Jim Comey."

Comey has not exchanged a word, spoken or written, with the committee since then.

All it took to get this straight-arrow civil servant to tell his version of the truth to the American people was a check containing six or more zeroes.
