According to the Daily Caller, "Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress Friday that the FBI had not verified the Steele dossier prior to relying on the salacious document to obtain spy warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page".
Strzok "was one of the handful of people in the entire world who knew we were investigating four Americans who had some connection to Mr Trump during the summer of 2016, and he didn't tell a soul", Comey said.
Former FBI Director James Comey, with his attorney, David Kelley, left, arrive to testify under subpoena behind closed doors before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Dec. 7, 2018.
That said, Comey continued, if both the House and Senate were to vote to impeach and remove Mr. Trump from office, "that's fine". "They have to win".
"On 245 occasions, former FBI Director James Comey told House investigators he didn't know, didn't recall, or couldn't remember things when asked. We have to remind ourselves the president of the United States of America is publicly announcing that people are committing crimes, that they should be in jail", he added.
Earlier in the day, Trump had accused Comey of giving evasive answers to Congress, and setting "a record for who lied the most to Congress in one day", responding to reports that Republicans were unhappy with his testimony. However, Trump bashed his former Federal Bureau of Investigation director on Sunday after transcripts from Comey's closed-door meeting with lawmakers last week revealed Comey was unable to answer hundreds of questions.

Comey later headed a separate investigation into alleged ties between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.
"Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues meant to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information", said Comey.
In his testimony Friday, Comey strongly defended Strzok against the charges of bias, the transcript shows.
"Removal by impeachment would muddy that", he said, and potentially leave a third of the country feeling like their chosen leader had been removed in a "coup".
Dr. Zaino is correct, it was Republicans who insisted that Comey appear, and as Comey noted in his post-testimony press conference, it was Republicans who went fishing for ammunition against Hillary Clinton.
