(KNX 1070) -- Former F.B.I. Director James B. Comey made an exclusive appearance in-studio Friday at 1 p.m. PST on In-Depth.
The investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election didn't start with Comey, but because of a flurry of events that swirled around the former FBI director, the investigation certainly took a historic turn.
What you missed in Comey's interview:
* "It's not part of me and FBI to be on both teams at the same time. We can't be part of the deep state while also trying to defeat Hillary Clinton," Comey said.
* "We have been so much more screwed up than this in our history and that history should console all of us. We always get our act together, our values are too strong, there's a ballast in this country and the great middle of this country wakes up when those values are threatened, and always responds and we resume our upward march," Comey said.
* "I would much prefer something that requires all of us to be accountable. Which is an election for the American people...," Comey said.
Comey was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2013. He was the 7th Director of the FBI.
In May of 2017, he was fired by President Trump amid a storm of politics surrounding Russia's collusion during the 2016 presidential election.
