 afisher - Yes, the RW clock is ticking but if they don't use a legal means, everyone can ignore them...

 

Per the Congressional calendar for Nov. & Dec. the House will be session for 12 days.  Beginning Monday they can start kicking the dust around for their big finale.  Their last act of claiming to be the victims of horribly bad people that they really and truly do have the goods on.  They need more opportunity to make fools of themselves?  I think that's about it, and then the curtain comes down and it's Christmas.  Such a shame they lack any hint of dignity or respect for a peacful transition of power.

Gruffstuff, why are Trump's House flunkies terrified of a public hearing with Comey, where the American people can watch?

 

You answered your own question, the American People can watch.

 

They won't be able to create a false or misleading  narrative based on bits and pieces of testimony.

   Are the RW requesting interviews or issuing subpoena's...those are radically different .   The GOP are attempting again to say that the entire investigation is bs...and we know that is not true.   How?  How many people have been indicted for lying about their work with WH.    

   Yes, the RW clock is ticking but if they don't use a legal means, everyone can ignore them, as did Zuckerberg...and now we know that he hired RW PR firm that is in the headlines.   Or do the RWers want to ignore that as well?

Mr. Comey, please remember that if you are called to testify, that yelling and crying and asking elected representatives about their drinking habits, is supposed to make you sound much more believable. Or, you could act like an adult.

gruffstuff:  

 

“House Republicans can ask me anything they want but I want the American people to watch, so let’s have a public hearing. Truth is best served by transparency. Let me know when is convenient,” Comey tweeted Friday. 

 

 

 

Now that is funny. Comey will make them look like fools.

Comey invites House Republicans to hold public hearing after news of possible subpoena

 

Former FBI Director James Comey invited House Republicans to hold a public hearing following a report from The Hill on Friday that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is planning to subpoena him to testify before Democrats take control of the committee.

 

“House Republicans can ask me anything they want but I want the American people to watch, so let’s have a public hearing. Truth is best served by transparency. Let me know when is convenient,” Comey tweeted Friday. 

 

 

The GOP chairman on Friday provided notice to Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), the top Democrat on the panel and presumed incoming chairman, that he intends to subpoena Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss their decision making during the 2016 campaign.

 

Goodlatte plans to subpoena the pair to discuss their decisionmaking during the 2016 presidential election, a committee aide told The Hill on Friday. Republicans on the panel are seeking to have Comey appear for a deposition on Nov. 29 and for Lynch to testify Dec. 5.

 

Republicans are keen to question Comey over records he reportedly made of his private conversations with President Trump. During congressional testimony last year, the former FBI director said he kept records of such meetings because he felt the president inappropriately asked him to make a loyalty pledge while he was leading the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

 

The president has denied making such a request.

 

Comey has also held that he did not disclose classified information when he shared some of the records' contents with a friend, Columbia University law professor, Daniel Richman. Richman shared the information verbally with The New York Times, in what became a successful maneuver to prompt the appointment of a special counsel — Robert Mueller.

 

Under Judiciary Committee rules, the chairman must consult the ranking member at least two business days before issuing any subpoena — suggesting that the move could be imminent.

“It is unfortunate that the outgoing Majority is resorting to these tactics," Nadler said in a statement Friday. 

 

"Months ago, Director Comey and Attorney General Lynch both indicated their willingness to answer the Chairman’s questions voluntarily. My understanding is that the Republicans have had no contact with either the Director or the Attorney General since," he added, stating that the subpoenas are "coming out of the blue."

 

House Republicans, particularly those in the right-wing Freedom Caucus, sought to compel Comey to testify behind closed doors earlier this year. Comey declined, saying he would testify in a public setting.
