House Judiciary Chair Goodlatte issues subpoena for Comey, Lynch

James Comey and Loretta Lynch subpoenaed to testify in twilight of House Republican power

"Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans", Comey wrote. I'm still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions.

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

The request from House Republicans isn't a surprise.

Outgoing House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte provided notice of the pending subpoenas though the former Justice Department leaders have offered to testify voluntarily as part of the committee's probe of allegations of political bias at the DOJ and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The subpoenas, issued Wednesday but revealed publicly Thanksgiving morning, completed the threats issued by GOP committee chairman Bob Goodlatte earlier in the week. The Virginia Republican has indicated he wants Comey to appear behind closed doors November 29 and Lynch on December 5, Bloomberg reported November 16, citing a congressional official.

But Republicans will only control the House until January, when Democrats will take over the chamber - and its many committees - after a wave of electoral victories in the midterm elections won Democrats a House majority.

Late yesterday, former FBI Director James Comey was served with a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee to testify on December 3, 2018, in a closed door interview concerning 'decisions made and not made by the FBI and DOJ concerning the 2016 election'. Republicans allege that the former FBI Director leaked memos of these meetings to the New York Times via a friend, a maneuver that led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the opening of the ongoing "Russiagate" investigation. "Accordingly, Mr. Comey will resist in Court this abuse of process". "Let's have a hearing and invite everyone to see".

Comey and Lynch were both under scrutiny by Republicans for their actions during the 2016 presidential campaign regarding the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton's private e-mail server.

"Months ago, Director Comey and Attorney General Lynch both indicated their willingness to answer the Chairman's questions voluntarily".
