Mueller witness Comey contradicted himself on secret Flynn testimony


How this guy ever rose to become FBI director will go down as one the world's great mysteries.
Washington Times reports fired FBI Director James Comey has repeatedly denied during his book tour that he never testified that FBI agents concluded that retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn didn’t intentionally mislead them.

That adamant assertion came into question Friday night when the Republican majority on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released portions of Mr. Comey’s closed-door testimony. The section had been classified when the panel’s Russia report was first released last month.

In the now-declassified pages, Mr. Comey is quoted verbatim as saying agents, in fact, assessed Mr. Flynn as not being deceptive. Agents questioned him about his phone calls during the presidential transition with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Mr. Comey testified, “The agents …. discerned no physical indications of deception. They didn’t see any change in posture, in tone, in inflection, in eye contact. They saw nothing that indicated to them that he knew he was lying to them.”
