At the Comey hearing, the most confusing questions came from John McCain

I’m watching McCain on CNN right now trying to clear up what he was trying to ask and I still don’t understand.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) vexed former FBI Director James Comey — and pretty much everyone on social media — on Thursday, with a line of questioning near the end of Comey’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

McCain’s queries appeared to center on a distinction between outcomes of the concluded FBI investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom the bureau declined to charge with crimes last year over her use of a private server for government emails, and its ongoing investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

He seemed to be asking why the Clinton investigation was closed but the Russian investigation — which has grown to include questions about conduct by associates of President Donald Trump during the campaign — continues. But it’s hard to say for sure.
