Incoming House Democratic Caucus Hakeem Jeffries on Friday had harsh words for the House Republicans’ closed door hearings with former FBI director James Comey, saying it was a “total and complete waste of time” since everybody already knows what Comey did during the 2016 election.
“This is a total and complete waste of time,” Jeffries said. “We know that perhaps the most significant thing that James Comey did in the 2016 election was, with 11 days, parachute into that campaign, detonate a grenade on Hillary Clinton’s candidacy by re-opening an investigation where there was no evidence justifying that to happen and perhaps costing her the election.”
“There is no reason for us to revisit what may or may not have happened in 2016 when it is a fact that’s hiding in plain sight,” he added, lamenting the waste of taxpayer dollars. “This is a witch hunt, a kangaroo court and a three-ring circus wrapped into one.”
