Today on "Pure Opelka," Mike Opelka analyzed a segment of the May 3 Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that he believed should shut down any talk of President Donald Trump obstructing justice with former FBI director James Comey.

Hawaiian Senator Mazie Hirono (D) asked Comey "If the attorney general or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes [sic] a specific investigation, can they halt that investigation?"

Comey responded: "In theory, yes."

She then asked "Has it happened?"

He responded "Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something without appropriate purpose. We're oftentimes given opinions that 'we don't see a case there so we 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."

Although Comey was talking about the DOJ, Mike felt it also indicated that he had not been asked to halt an investigation by the president, either.
