Comey responded to the subpoena on Twitter, calling for a public hearing instead of a private interview.


Yeah, the man is calling for a PUBLIC hearing vs a PRIVATE one where Republicans can use his secret testimony as ammunition for their political rhetoric. A man calling for a PUBLIC hearing clearing isn't trying to hide anything. He's trying to stop the GOP from twisting his testimony for their own political gains knowing the public isn't privy to the BS they'll be spewing.

Comey told the committees he would not testify privately, but that he would be willing to appear for a public hearing to answer lawmakers’ questions.

Comey accuses the congressional panels that seek to interview him of selectively leaking information from “many -if not all – of the witnesses who have come before them” in an effort to cast the FBI as unfairly favoring Clinton while scorning President Donald Trump.




Comey also says the request to hold his interview behind closed doors violates House rules, which allow for private testimony only in specific circumstances – none of which apply here.

“The clear pattern of leaks and other comments by members of the joint committees make plain that the request for secrecy in these interviews is not about secrecy, but a mechanism to permit selective and biased exposure of testimonial snippets that appear to support a political narrative while at the same time withholding from view any testimony that undermines that narrative,” the motion states.


Swills, how do you manage to carry so much water for so long? Your back must be so strong.

Why would Comey be afraid about testifying in private about his "secret" testimony? Is he afraid he might perjury himself? Is his "secret" testimony not truthful?

To the pound with that dirty dog. he is full of dew!

Didn't Trump leak something that was a national security issue to the press, too?

Like the "Russia" BS you and yours are spewing?

Xuen nailed it with the classified comment.


No, not really.

Xuen seems to be unaware that Comey no longer has a security clearance. He lost it when he left the FBI. He could not legally sit in on a classified session under any circumstances. Furthermore, he could not legally respond in an open setting to a question that would require discussing any classified information that he might have been aware of when he did have a clearance. Classified information will not be a factor in Comey's testimony if and when he appears before Congress.

This is interesting. Goodlatte tweeted the following to ensure transparency for Comey.

Of course Comey won’t really allow transparency...

I for one am not interested in hearing what Comey has to say
in a public hearing. He is not currently employed, this makes his
public testimony as interesting as a 286 in the trash bin.

I am however extremely interested in seeing him brought before
the Majority to answer questions as to why he gave immunity
to all of Hillary Clinton's staff, why he let Loretta Lynch interfere
in an investigation, why he called for a Special Counsel to look
into Trump but not Clinton.

And he should be under oath, because that way he can walk
the fine line of perjury to Congress.

I won't be holding my breath though, he is a slimy snake.
This is a stall tactic, he wants to wait until the panel changes
majority and the new one will kick it out.

Don't understand how this classified stuff works, do ya?

A former-but-fired FBI director would only want a public hearing when being questioned on a matter that surrounds classified documents and information so that he wouldn't have to discuss said material. He's being a weasel, and he is a weasel.

Sorry, Swills, but I get how this stuff works, and I understand exactly what Comey is attempting to do. Quit deflecting with your biased expectations and look at it for what it is--it might provide some mental clarity.

But really, you don't quite understand how handling classified, or even potentially classified, information matters, do ya? No wonder you don't care that Hillary isn't facing a jury yet (if memory serves how you've commented on the email/server issues). I'm all for public hearings, but when classified material is being discussed, I understand why they don't happen.

Birds of feather flock together; Comey and Mueller
.

Comey said it all in his Motion to Quash Congressional Subpoena as it takes one to know one to play that card in his defense. Seems he knows that its done all the time.Wasn't he coached under Mueller's wings?

I just wonder how many innocent people have been falsely found guilty under the apparent reign of terror by Muller, Comey and that other guy named J. Edgar.

Fired FBI Director and Grand Savior of Hillary has been subpoenaed to testify in front of a House Committee as we all know by now.

So what does he do now?

He takes it to court trying to wiggle out 😆

Running out the clock till Democrats take control of that Committee !!!

What a brilliant tactic !! Bet he thought of it all by himself 😆

And he's been "slick" too with his "demands" to make the hearing public, knowing it can't be because of stuff "classified at the time" 🤦‍♀️



Comey Sues To Block Subpoena For House Deposition

Former FBI Director James Comey is asking a federal judge to block a subpoena for his closed-door testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.

The committee subpoenaed Comey on Nov. 21 to appear for a deposition Dec. 3 regarding his handling of the FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Comey responded to the subpoena on Twitter, calling for a public hearing instead of a private interview.



Comey is a piece of crap about to get caught in the grit screen.
Bet he rolls over on a lot of other turds in DC when the time comes.

All of which has nothing to do with what he knows and when he knew it and what he may or may not have done "at the time".
