BILL HEMMER (ANCHOR): ​Marie, isn't it relevant ​that ​​[Comey's] wife voted for Hillary Clinton​, she's ​on camera saying that​,​ and three or four​ of his​ daughters marched in the ​m​arch in Washington the day after the inauguration? Do we not think that is significant to understanding the entire context from which he is coming?

​MARIE HARF (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): ​Look, public servants are allowed to vote and​ their​ families allowed to vote​, and they're allowed​ ​to donate money. ​So --​

​HEMMER: ​I want to be clear, ​I'm not suggesting they shouldn't. ​But to understand the entire story​,​ don't you think that context is relevant here?
