James Comey Resists Closed-Door Congress Interview on FBI Actions

House Republicans served up some subpoenas with their Thanksgiving turkey this week, issuing last-minute demands for former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to appear for closed-door testimony on December 3 and December 4, respectively.

Former FBI Director James Comey rejects a subpoena from House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte.

"I'm still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions", he tweeted.

Comey tweeted of House Republicans: "I've seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion".

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee is requesting private depositions from Mr. Comey on December 3 and Ms. Democrats will assume control of the committee and the majority in the House in the new year.

House Republicans' probe into the FBI's actions in 2016 will come to an end when Democrats take over the House in January.

'Let's have a hearing and invite everyone to see, ' he said.

Mr. Comey, who had spurned recent committee requests to testify, confirmed Thursday on Twitter he received a subpoena.

Comey said he'll fight against a closed interview with congressional Republicans.

They have interviewed multiple current and former DoJ officials behind closed doors in an effort to prove their point.

The subpoenas follow a New York Times report that Mr. Trump wanted to order the Justice Department to prosecute rivals Comey and Hillary Clinton.

Comey's attorney David N. Kelley expanded on the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's request for open hearing in a statement that said the subpoena for a "closed door interview" was a break from established norms. As Representative Goodlatte and his colleagues on the House Judiciary Committee have repeatedly demonstrated, the interviews they have conducted in closed session concerning Russian Federation and the Clinton email investigations are exclusively for the objective of selectively leaking statements made by witnesses in order to fit and promote the Committee's false narrative.

Both Comey and Lynch face questions over what they did or did not do to allegedly boost Hillary Clinton's chances in the 2016 Presidential Election.
