Goodlatte Simmers Over Subpoena Fight: Looks Like Comey 'Believes He Deserves Special Treatment'

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee wonders whether former FBI Director James Comey believes he deserves "special treatment" after he filed a lawsuit in federal court fighting a subpoena to testify in private sessions.

In a pair of tweets Thursday, Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., condemned Comey for doing what other witnesses have already done.

"The truth IS best served with transparency. What is Director Comey trying to hide from the American people with his baseless motion to quash?" Goodlatte said.

"It appears Mr. Comey believes he deserves special treatment, as he is the only witness refusing to either appear voluntarily or comply with a subpoena," he added. "He needs to appear before the Committees, as all other witnesses have done. Let the facts come to light."

Comey said he will only testify in an open hearing for fear of targeted leaks by Republicans. Republicans on the Judiciary and Oversight committees sent subpoenas to Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify next month for their joint investigation into the Justice Department and FBI’s actions ahead of the 2016 presidential election. This includes the probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

In the 17-page motion filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia late Thursday, a lawyer for Comey says the closed-door deposition “exceeds a proper legislative purpose, is issued in violation of House rules, and unduly prejudices and harasses the witness.”

So far it is unclear whether Lynch will comply with the subpoena she received.

He will wait out the clock and it's all over. That's all he has to do.

Trump should troll Comey with statements like, “So you’d rather testify about your lifelong pedophilia in public hearings as opposed to a closed session, is that about right?”

Why is it that ignoring subpoenas is even an option for Lynch and Comey apparently without fear of repercussions?

Why do people not notice the massive double standards?
