Stephen Colbert asks James Comey the hard questions at his hearing

Stephen Colbert Comey CBSCBS‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.’

On Thursday night’s episode of “The Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert spoofed the historic hearing by former FBI Director James Comey.  

Having fun with the news, Colbert did a bit in which he inserted himself into the proceedings as one of the members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that questioned Comey.

Interrupting the opening remarks, Colbert took the floor and thanked the committee for letting him be there even though, as he said, “I’m here only because I won a radio call-in contest.”

He then attempted to get Comey to say if he believes President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians. Then in a clip of Comey says he can’t say in a public forum.

Colbert tries another way to get to the answer: “Let’s say you had an orange cat, really fat and lies a lot, would the cat enjoy drinking vodka?”

Comey, again, doesn’t answer.
