5:30 pm
the work force had lot of confidence in its leader. those were lies plain and simp simple. and i am so sorry that the fbi work force had to hear them and i'm so sorry that the american people were told them. i don't think it's for me to say whether the conversation i had with the president was an effort to obstruct. i took it as very disturbing thing, very concerning, but that's a conclusion i'm sure the special counsel will work towards to try and understand what the intention was there and whether that's an offense. >> you worked on the presidents of both parties. what was it about that meeting that led you to determine that you needed to start putting down a written record? >> a combination of things. i think the circumstances, the subject matter and the person i was inter acting with. circumstances first i was alone with the president of the united states or the president-elect soon to be president. the subject matter i was talking about matters that touch on the fbi's core responsibility and
