Breaking: The House Judiciary Committee has noticed that they will
imminently subpoena former FBI Director James Comey and Former
Attorney General Loretta Lynch over their decisions in the 2016 election.


House Judiciary Chairman Robert Goodlatte has notified colleagues that he will subpoena Comey for a closed-door deposition Nov. 29 and Lynch for Dec. 5, according to a person familiar with the subpoenas. The person declined to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly. The subpoenas are part of a Republican investigation into decisions made by the department during the 2016 election.

time.com...

This move signals that the Senate Judiciary Committee will also take up the
issue as they take the Majority again. Senator Lindsay Graham of newly found
rock star fame will lead the way in investigations from the Senate Judiciary
where he is set to be the new Chairman.


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday said he would “totally” look into the FBI’s handling of its investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails if he becomes chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “The oversight function will be very much front and center,” Graham said in an appearance on CNN.

And so it begins.

Will we finally get answers as to why Loretta Lynch met with
Bill Clinton on the tarmac? Will James Comey answer questions as to why
he cowered to Lynch and called it a 'matter', and allowed the FBI to become
politicized, and corrupted?

Or will they both take the 5th, and refuse to testify?

No wonder the msm want's to drown out the Senate majority win
the GOP and Trump just took 53 to 47.

James Comey has responded on Twitter, saying he wants
another public circus. Only this time I'd bet he wont be
asking for a special counsel.




“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.

Thank gawd, what he wants is irrelevant. I hope his deposition stays behind closed doors. I think his Twitter post was a plea to have a chance to grandstand in front of the cameras. He loves to hear himself talk and bloviate and wax philosophical.

Where has it been confirmed 53-47? Still seeing 51-47 with 2 to close to call.

Yeah. That way the Republicans can say only what they want to say about it.

For a month or so.

Has everybody slept through two years of all Republican everything, including the House, they're about to lose? If nothing came out of this out of those two years, you really think this last month will produce something new?

By the way, hasn't Comey been saying all along that he wants to speak and offering it? I bet he'd do it publicly in a heart beat.

Edit: as per your follow up post, same story stands... he will speak publicly, as he has been saying all along.

Hopefully this time the committee won't fall for his dirty tricks.
Comey has dirty hands in the Mueller investigation, by now
he must be aware of whistle blowers. Bet he is counting on
his 'firewall'. Whatever that is right?

This should be interesting now that Sessions is out of the way....

Once again, you only see rocks...

Both sides pull that sh!t, so throwing out that watered down rhetoric does no one any good.

Surprised you even care about politics - must be going through a midlife crisis.

Hang in there champ.

That's fine. It will all be made public in time. Do you not honestly see the purpose for a closed-door hearing?...Comey on the 29th of this month and Lynch on the 5th of Dec.?

Comey's testimony should be behind closed doors so Lynch and anybody else won't be able to see what hand he played, so they can "adjust" their own testimony.

As it goes, that is senators elect. Dems might be trying hard
to change the numbers with all kinds of shenanigans, however
they may not succeed as they are under close watch.

Congressional investigators referred Comey and Lynch and Hillary to the Department of Justice for suspected criminal activities back in April.

The DOJ has done nothing. Bob Goodlatte said (on Hannity) they act like he's annoying them, when he calls to check on the status of those April referrals.

Subpoenas sound BIG, but unless the Dept of Justice ACTS on what is being learned from these subpoenaed "witnesses", their testimony means absolutely NOTHING.

Acting A.G. Whitaker needs to do what swamp-creature Jeff Sessions was not willing to do. That is, to appoint a SPECIAL COUNSEL . A SPECIAL COUNSEL will continue to investigate and indict, long after the House is ruled by Democrats, and Bob Goodlatte is begging speaker Pelosi for favors.

Hope your right though. It would be a huge if that is the final tally.

Till the Senate Judiciary takes it up, and then as Nancy
has said to at least one 'congressman' 'who are you?
Your nobody'.

Senate has the majority, they can investigate parallel.

But hey, James Comey could also ask for a Special Counsel, right?

Who will flip on who first? The entire bit about "intent" being required to indict Hilly was pure BS. Was Loretta squeezing Comey and was Comey's announcement right before the election the only way he could warn the public about the Clinton Mafia? The Russia collusion investigation should be expanded to all those who got into the Clinton server. That would keep the SI busy for another 10 years at least. Seth Rich, a Bernie supporter, seems to have provided Assange with the emails. Assange may make a deal, too, if the US ever get their hands on him. Maybe it has already been made. Are the 50,000+ sealed indictments real with 10,000 of those in California?

I expect that we will find out soon. Buy popcorn.

The Florida race is nearly over. The machine recount ended with Scott (the Republican) still 12,600 votes ahead. They're doing a hand recount now, but realistically if they suddenly "find" 13,000 Nelson votes at this point, there is literally no explanation other than fraud. And with everyone watching Florida (and waiting for that lady from Broward County to get indicted) I kinda doubt they'll try any funny business now.

The Mississippi special election is going to have a runoff at the end of this month. Basically, this is expected to go Republican in the runoff. The top R and top D got 41.5% and 40.6% respectively, but there was another R who got 16% of the vote, and presumably his support will go to the first guy in the runoff. (There was also another D who only got about 1.5%.)

fyi...

Scott in Florida is still not "official".

and, Mississippi has a run off election soon to make a Senator "Official".

Comey and Lynch need their own "private" special lawyers now !!

If they even testify and don't lie 😬

You bring up some interesting points about Assange, is it possible
he could be given immunity for his testimony?

Stocking up on popcorn for the winter.
