Comey had fought the congressional subpoena in court, pushing for a public hearing before settling for some concessions. Under a deal struck with the House Judiciary Committee, he can speak afterward and a transcript will be released.

"The one thing that I can tell you today that surprised me is that under Trey Gowdy's questioning and John Ratcliffe's, it was the Justice Department, meaning that the FBI attorney who's in there with him, that time and time again, I think to his pleasure, told him not to answer question after question, fundamental to the investigations that brought him there", Issa said.

Two GOP-led committees are wrapping up a yearlong investigation into decisions made at the Justice Department during the 2016 presidential election.

"We absolutely need to get answers", Issa said.

"Without the phony Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last nearly two years (Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judge's, Military, Vets, etc.) my approval rating would be at 75% rather than the 50% just reported by Rasmussen", Trump wrote in his tweet.

"One of the disappointments of this deposition so far has been the amount of times in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation believes that Congress doesn't have a right to know", Issa said.

Over the previous year, Republicans on the two separate House panels have brought in a series of officials and said after the closed-door meetings that there is ample evidence of bias. "The entire goal of this investigation is to cast aspersion on the real investigation, which is Mueller".

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) appeared to be most frustrated, explaining to the press that Comey came with two attorneys, one of whom has instructed his client to answer very few questions. The investigation's most public day was a 10-hour hearing in which former FBI special agent Peter Strzok defended anti-Trump texts he sent to a colleague as he helped lead both investigations.

Democrats had much different takes on Capitol Hill this morning, telling the press that the closed door meeting with Comey is unnecessary and clearly a ploy to disrupt special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

A transcript will be released "as soon as possible after the interview, in the name of our combined desire for transparency", Goodlatte said.

Comey's last appearance before lawmakers was 18 months ago, at a public hearing in June 2017. But it also found there was no evidence that Comey's or the department's final conclusions were motivated by political bias toward either candidate.
