FBI & NSA chiefs testify in Congress on Trump, Russia, wiretapping (WATCH LIVE)

Here's some of the gems that can be found:

17:22 GMT

Sources that claim to be disclosing classified information but lie to a reporter are not breaking the law, Comey tells Turner.

What is the responsibility of the intelligence community to correct falsehoods, Turner asks.

"We can't" correct that, Comey responds, as doing so would "give information to our adversaries."

A lot of things published over the past couple of months is "just wrong," Comey says, but he can't say what that is.

16:24 GMT

Answering King on leaks, Comey says there is much in the newspapers and "a lot of it is just dead wrong."

People are talking to reporters, or at least reporters are saying saying people are talking to them, in ways Comey said he would describe as "unusually active."

16:18 GMT

Rep. Peter King quotes former CIA Director and Clinton supporter Michael Morell that "there's smoke, but no fire" to stories about Trump's collusion with Russia. Both Comey and Rogers decline to comment.

King says he expects such an answer, but wants to enter Morrell's quote into the record.

19:19 GMT

The FBI investigation itself is creating a cloud over the sitting administration, Nunes tells Comey.

Comey says he can't answer if the FBI has any evidence of any wrongdoing.

"I can tell you that we don't have any evidence," he says, urging Comey to hurry with his probe and ending the hearing.
19:13 GMT

Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is asking Comey (both were prosecutors once) about hearsay and newspaper articles as proof.

"The system we respect would laugh you out of court" if one showed up with a newspaper article as evidence, Gowdy says. "How do you cross-examine an anonymous source? How do you cross-examine hearsay?"

@CB would have been nice if the Republicans had figured this out sometime early in the Bush era. FFS. We need a movement against both parties.

don't, someone might find the courage to ask them to explain why they rigged the primary. It's very important that the Dims make everyone else look guiltier that they are. Especially if they haul the Clinton Creature out and try to run her worthless and corrupt ass again.

I've had quite the day telling Clinton Creature supporters that THEY are the ones responsible for Trump being in the White House. There are all kinds of crazies out there that find no problem with the DNC interfering and rigging the primary but are screaming to the Heavens about the Russians. I tell them that we tried to warn them. Hahahaha. That's when they go nuts.

@Amanda Matthews Quite simply is this: faith is the belief in things not susceptible to proof, i.e., the existence or non-existence of god(s). Delusion is the belief in things already proven incorrect.

One commonality between the two: no rational argument will suffice to convince either of a contrary view.

@Amanda Matthews

is no coincidence--the timing, that is.

Clinton: I'm ready to come out of the woods

Four months after a crushing loss to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton says she’s ready.

“I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this, to help draw strength that will enable everybody to keep going,” the former U.S. Democratic presidential candidate told the Society of Irish Women at a St. Patrick’s Day event on Friday in Scranton, Penn., her father’s hometown.

Clinton suggested that change likely won’t come from Washington. “What can we do to try to bring people together and to try to find that common ground, even higher ground, sister, so that we listen to each other again and we know that we can make a difference? I’m not sure it will come out of Washington yet, but I think it can come out of Scranton. Let’s find ways to do that.”

She'll be the next Dem Party candidate, IMO. These people never learn!!!

@Unabashed Liberal
late keeping her promise (through her kid Chelsea, who said it was "personal") to the people of Flint to not abandon them in their fight against being poisoned?

This woman crawls out of the woodwork, shows up at an obviously publicized event, makes some promises and stirs up some shit to capitalize on the publicity and hype, and then moves on to the next national tragedy or controversy or '2020 campaign appearance'. (With the kid frequently following right behind or sometimes even in place of). Those Clinton's are sure fickle. They're 'social movement' gadflies. Talk big, tell people what needs to be done, and then skedaddle. Unless, of course, the request for support is accompanied by a donation to the family slush fund (which, I thought I read, is now closing up shop due to nothing left to sell) or current campaign PAC.

If it was a contest, I'd bet that the women of Scranton are probably more likely to hear from her again than are the women of Flint. They're more to to her liking, they are her supporters and they vote and donate. The women of Flint probably won't because they are now yesterday's news, they're poor, and there's nothing to be gained anymore. And because it's all Trump Russia FBI CIA now (something I believe is Turd Way/DNC driven and is all being generated for benefit the woman we're 'discussing').

@Amanda Matthews I don't think the women of Scranton are her supporters. She didn't carry them in the last election. The only parts of PA she carried were Philly and Pittsburgh, and I'm surprised she got Pittsburgh, frankly.

guaranteed safe audience. She doesn't do town halls just by invitation only events. The only time she has to face a hostile person in public is when someone crashes the party. For example:

@Amanda Matthews @Amanda Matthews are angry as hell that their candidate lost the election. No, Donald Trump did not win the election. No, the Russians did not rig the election. No, James Comey did not cause Clinton to lose. And no, (because this one was recently directed personally toward me) Jill Stein voters were not responsible for Donald Trump which I find laughable since Libertarian Gary Johnson got three times the votes that Stein got in my home state of Florida.

The thinking of these people is so skewed that it defies logic and I am talking about friends who have upper level degrees and whom I consider to be reasonable intelligent. They all are flailing about to explain how SHE who should have been CORONATED somehow lost.

Clinton lost the election, pure and simple. She lost because she was a shitty candidate who ran a shitty campaign based upon the premise that Trump was worse. She gave the voters nothing to vote for and the Democratic party insists upon continuing down that road of nothingness.

@earthling1 No, I'm afraid not. It's not kabuki. It's pre-emptive self-justification, because the alleged woes of Crimea weren't enough to get the American people behind the war with Russia the PTB want.
