James Comey Says He Would Never Comments Publicly on Open Investigation

Memo to Jimmy:  Visit the Creidibility Store and Buy Some - Yours and the FBI's Is All Gone

Hidden by the non-news that is getting headlines is this remarkable story from Salon.

Dream Cast: Pinocchio
Comey as he looks today

 "Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., then referenced an interview in which a top Russian diplomat said his government had been in contact with the Trump campaign and asked Comey, “Has the FBI investigated these reported relationships, and, if so, what are the agency’s findings?” What was this all about?
Comey responded by saying, “I would never comment on investigations, whether we have one or not, in an open forum like this. So I really can’t answer it one way or another.” Considering his notorious behavior with respect to the Hillary Clinton email server investigation, this naturally elicited some incredulous reactions, notably from Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who followed up quickly by asking if Comey planned to answer Wyden’s question. And when Comey repeated his statement, King archly replied, “The irony of your making that statement here — I cannot avoid.”
Now if only this involved an actress maybe it would have gotten some coverage.  But that would be asking the press to be, you know, like a real press.
