Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, called former FBI Director James Comey’s closed-door testimony before Congress on Friday a “waste of time” meant only to give Republicans a chance to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“It’s a waste of time to start with,” he told reporters. “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.”

Comey agreed to testify on Friday at House Republicans request under the pretense that a full transcript of the testimony be released afterwards. GOPers want to question Comey about his actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russia probe.
