from True Pundit:
Testimony from former FBI Director James Comey’s closed-door session with lawmakers last week was released late Saturday, revealing, among other things, that Comey apparently is unable to recall key details of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and the Trump campaign.
In fact, Comey so frequently told lawmakers he could not answer their questions that a tweet from one top congressional Republican, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), went viral over the weekend for noting the absurdity of Comey’s testimony.
In a tweet, Jordan brought attention to the number of times Comey told lawmakers “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember,” or “I don’t recall” in response to their questions. In total, Comey uttered those phrases 245 times.
“I don’t recall”—8 times
“I don’t remember”—71 times
“I don’t know”—166 times
AND he said he didn’t know that
Christopher Steele was passing information to Bruce Ohr, who was giving it to the FBI.

Many found it preposterous that Comey, who was privy to all information in the investigation before being fired by President Donald Trump, could not recall key details of the investigation. Transcripts reveal lawmakers’ frustration with Comey’s inability to remember facts about the investigation.
