Former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before House legislators turned out to be a “waste of time,” according to lawmakers.

“It’s a waste of time to start with,” Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee told reporters after the meeting, according to Talking Points Memo. “The entire purpose of this investigation is to cast aspersion on the real investigation, which is Mueller. There’s no evidence whatsoever of bias at the FBI or any of this other nonsense they’re talking about.”

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told reporters that “one of the disappointments of this deposition so far has been the amount of times in which the FBI believes that Congress doesn’t have a right to know,” according to Fox News.

Comey, who brought two attorneys, including one from the Department of Justice, followed their instructions and would not answer “a great many questions that are clearly items at the core of our investigation,” according to the congressman.

Issa added that Comey complied with “gleeful acceptance,” saying, “The Department of Justice is going to have to agree to allow him to come back and answer a great many questions that currently he is not answering.”
