Former FBI Director James Comey Ain’t Hiding
Former FBI Director James Comey has been requested by Republicans from the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committee to testify.
The committee is looking to ask questions of Comey regarding “bias” at the Justice Department and the FBI. Gee, I wonder whose brilliant idea that was?
Well, how do you think Comey replied? No problem, but there’s a catch: Comey won’t testify in a closed-door setting as per the Republicans’ request. Comey wants his testimony to be open to the public.
Per Comey’s attorney, David Kelley, he replied to the House Judiciary and the Oversight and Government Reform as follows:
“Mr. Comey respectfully declines your request for a private interview. He would, however, welcome the opportunity to testify at a public hearing.”
Trey Gowdy was one of the Republicans that requested this closed-door session. Kind it funny don’t you think that Gowdy was in such a hurry to get to the bottom of the truth that now he wants to do this in secrecy?
Even better, President Trump going ballistic and removing everyone’s security clearance resulted in this, because Kelley continued in his letter that “given that Mr. Comey no longer has a security clearance, we do not anticipate the public setting to present concerns about the disclosure of classified information.”

“Moreover, we also expect that, because any information about which you may inquire was acquired by Mr. Comey while he was in the employ of the FBI, you will obtain in advance the necessary approvals from the FBI for Mr. Comey to disclose FBI information that may be responsive to your examination.”
Now, let’s see how the Republicans reply. They’ll probably forget about Comey all together as they come up with the next scheme to continue to discredit the Robert Mueller investigation.
