Comey: Clinton Interview Not Recorded; 7-7-2016, and Comey Not Present at Interview

Although Comey testified he believes Clinton was truthful during the interview, it's hard to understand how he came to that conclusion since he was not there, and there is no transcript of what she said during the interview.  He was not sure whether there were five or six agents present at the interview, but he said he did not talk with all of them afterward.  Since we will never be privy to much about the interview itself, it appears Comey's understanding of the word "transparency" (a word he used often during his testimony before Congress) is different from this one:  an honest way of doing things that allows other people to know exactly what you are doing.
