The bureau made “multiple requests at different levels,” according to Comey, but ultimately struck an agreement with the DNC that a “highly respected private company” would get access and share what it found with investigators.
“We’d always prefer to have access hands-on ourselves if that’s possible,” Comey said, noting that he didn’t know why the DNC rebuffed the FBI’s request.

You really need to ease up on the god crap.
How self absorbed and delusional does one have to be to think that a god would intervene in politics.
Just as bad as the Muslims you no doubt fear...

Even if the question was about the attorney general and the DOJ, Comey had a chance to say that the person with the highest office in the administration did tell him to stop the investigation... But Comey said that had never happened in his experience, and it would have been a big deal.

Comey knows what he's doing. He remembers his testimony. The question was specific to the DOJ and he had no reason to volunteer anything after that. Comey knows the courtroom and there is no way he would contradict himself like people are suggesting.
HIRONO: So if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?
COMEY: In theory yes.
HIRONO: Has it happened?
COMEY: Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose. I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience.

So you think that if in an investigation a witness is asked whether anyone from one department within the government asked the FBI to stop an investigation, that person is not going to mention that someone else from another government office, the highest member in office in the executive branch did indeed ask the FBI to stop the investigation if it had happened?

But no matter what Comey's answer is to that question, one side will believe him, and the other side will not. Not after so many flip-flops, ambiguities, and mis-speaks from James Comey these past 10 months.
