McCain says his confusing questions resulted from tiredness

But before that statement, many people were as confused as Comey.

He said what "capped" his decision to make his now-famous statement about the results of an investigation involving Clinton was a publicly reported meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton. John McCain suggested that he was exhausted when he questioned fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey on Thursday, a performance that lit up Twitter and the Internet with unsparing criticism. Still, what stole the show was Sen.

McCain started his participation by referring to Comey's answers concerning former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's email probe.

"This is about a sitting president and why he fired the FBI director in a historic move, and was that connected as he suggested to the Russians in his office the next day with his desire to undermine the Russia investigation".

Comey pointed out that the Clinton investigation concerned her use of a private email server. Was he arguing that Comey didn't investigate Clinton vigorously enough? Many - with the notable exception of President Donald Trump - shared their thoughts on social media. "I didn't believe she could credibly decline that investigation", Comey replied. "That one was done".

Camerota asked Kaine to comment on Comey's statements. According to Lynch, she and the ex-president discussed his grandchildren - and his golf game. So she was clearly involved in this whole situation where fake news, as you just described it, is a big deal took place.

"I think that the American people have a whole lot of questions out there, particularly since you just emphasized the role that Russian Federation played", McCain said. "In other words, we're complete, the investigation of anything former Secretary Clinton had to do with the campaign is over and we don't have to worry about it anymore?"

"(Ms Lynch) directed me not to call it an investigation and call it a matter - which confused me", Mr Comey said. McCain stuck to his confusing line of questioning, leaving people unsure about what they were watching.

McCain says, "I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people's heads". I wanted Mr. Comey to apply the same approach to the key question surrounding his interactions with President Trump-whether or not the President's conduct constitutes obstruction of justice.
