James Comey Lied To The Senate Intelligence Committee

After former FBI Director James Comey testified on Thursday, people began to point out something that didn’t ring quite true in his testimony.
Comey testified that, unlike when he served under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, he never felt compelled to take notes in a meeting. The gist of that was obviously to make Trump seem more concerning and problematic.
But turns out that was a lie.
In his account of his meeting with President Bush, Comey, of course, painted himself as the hero. This was his exchange with Senator Warner:
WARNER: And so, in all your experience, this was the only president that you felt like, in every meeting, you needed to document, because at some point, using your words, he might put out a non-truthful representation of that meeting?

COMEY: That’s right, Senator.

And I — I — as I said in my written testimony, as FBI director, I interacted with President Obama. I spoke only twice in three years, and didn’t document it. When I was deputy attorney general, I had one one-on-one meeting with President Bush about a very important and difficult national security matter.
I didn’t write a memo documenting that conversation either — sent a quick e-mail to my staff to let them know there was something going on, but I didn’t feel, with President Bush, the need to document it in that way, again (ph), because of — the combination of those factors just wasn’t present with either President Bush or President Obama.

WARNER: I — I think that is very significant
