Issa added that Comey complied with "gleeful acceptance", saying, "The Department of Justice is going to have to agree to allow him to come back and answer a great many questions that now he is not answering".
James Comey, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director called to testify before members of the House of Representatives on Friday, called the hearing a "desperate attempt to find anything that can be used to attack the institutions of justice investigating this president".
Republican lawmakers who stepped outside while the questioning was underway indicated they weren't satisfied and might try to bring him back another day.
Comey agreed to submit to the deposition before the House oversight committee in a deal settling his legal challenge of a subpoena in exchange for the public release of the full transcript of his testimony.
Comey has been under fire for using his personal Gmail for government business - while investigating Clinton for her private email misuse.
Comey was in charge of both those investigations.
Comey told reporters Friday he would be returning to testify in a couple weeks, on December 17, and that it would likely again be closed testimony. Fittingly, a GOP member of the committee spoke to the media afterwards about how Comey wouldn't answer questions, at the direction of legal counsel.

House Republicans have argued that Comey was biased against Trump because the FBI cleared Clinton, the former secretary of state who was Trump's rival in the 2016 election, in a probe into her use of a private email server, but pressed ahead with its investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the election.
"The Department of Justice is going to have to agree to allow [Comey] to come back and answer a great many questions that now he is not answering", Issa said.
Comey will appear for the interview Friday after fighting a subpoena in court.
So far, more than 30 people have been charged or pleaded guilty in Mueller's investigation.
