I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family.
It was revealed Thursday that the House Judiciary committee has subpoenaed ex-FBI Director James Comey and President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify early next month
It was confirmed that Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the outgoing Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee will have Comey and Lynch testifying before the committee on Dec. 3 and Dec 4 respectfully. Lynch had no response to the subpoena news.
Lynch will be asked how her office approved the spying of a presidential candidate and president-elect using dubious partisan evidence presented to the FISA court. She could also be grilled on her “surprise” tarmac meeting in Phoenix with former President Bill Clinton.
Comey, who was fired by President Trump in May 2017 took an interesting tack on Tweeter on Thursday:
Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans. I’m still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions. But I will resist a “closed door” thing because I’ve seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion. Let’s have a hearing and invite everyone to see.
The ex-FBI chief knows that if he “resists a closed-door” hearing, the questioning will be far more pedestrian since investigators will not be able to cite classified information in the hearing. Comey’s lawyer said he would sue if compelled to testify behind close doors.
It has little to do with “sitting in the light” and everything to do with keeping secrets in the dark.
“Dark to light” is what all these investigations are about, so it’s very interesting Comey would use that imagery.
