And there was a stenographer so they have notes just no recordings
When asked if there was a transcript of the interview, Comey stated that there wasn’t one because the interview wasn’t recorded,
Navy sailor pleads guilty to taking cellphone pictures inside restricted areas of nuclear submarine
A 29-year-old Navy sailor who took cellphone pictures of a nuclear submarine pleaded guilty on Friday to retaining classified information, according to the feds.
Petty Officer 1st Class Kristian Saucier could spend more than six years in prison under the suggested sentencing guidelines of his plea deal.
His prosecution led some to compare his case with that of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails. Saucier entered his guilty plea to one criminal count of unauthorized possession and retention of national security information in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport, Conn.
He admitted he snapped pictures inside the restricted areas of the U.S.S. Alexandria while serving as its machinist’s mate at Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton.
FBI and Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents said he photographed the sub’s auxiliary steam plant panel and reactor compartment in January 2009, its propulsion operation system in March 2009 and part of its nuclear reactor in July 2009.
The feds have never alleged he shared or planned to share the pictures.
Yet, Department of Justice officials said in a statement Friday, “Saucier had a secret clearance and knew that the photos depicted classified material and that he was not authorized to take them. He retained these photos and failed to deliver them to any officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it.”
FBI and NCIS agents questioned him in July 2012 after the photos were discovered on his phone at a waste transfer station in Hampton, the feds said. When he returned home from the interview, he destroyed a laptop computer, his personal camera and the camera’s memory card, according to investigators.
“We vehemently deny that Mr. Saucier ever intentionally did anything to harm the U.S. or aid a foreign national,” Hogan told the Hartford Courant after Saucier’s indictment last July.“The government is trying to levy an espionage charge against him. The government is trying to make it a lot bigger than it is.”

The meltdown is continuing.
And just WHAT hearing have you been watching ?
Clinton has been made out to be a complete IDIOT.
LOL...Let's hand over control of the Launch codes to her now.
I do not see evidence that is sufficient to establish that Secretary Clinton or those with whom she was corresponding both talked about classified information on email and knew when they did it, they were doing something that was against the law,” Comey said.
“No reasonable prosecutor would bring this case.
No reasonable prosecutor would bring the second case in a hundred years focused on gross negligence.”
