  • Comey Agrees To Give Testimony Following Arguments With GOP

    Former FBI Director James Comey tweeted Sunday that he has agreed to offer testimony for how the FBI handled the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Comey wrote on Twitter, "Grateful for a fair hearing from judge. Hard to protect my rights without being in contempt, which I don't believe in." Comey has demanded that his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee be public. Committee chairman Rep.

  • Comey To House Judiciary Republicans: About That Subpoena? Yeah, No

    Former FBI Director James Comey asked a federal judge on Thursday to quash a congressional subpoena from Republicans on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. According to Reuters, they're trying to compel Comey to testify behind closed doors about his decision-making ahead of the 2016 presidential election. The unusual filing came after Comey had told Republican lawmakers he would only agree to testify if the hearing were open to the public. The filing said Comey was requesting the court's intervention "to prevent the joint committee from using the pretext of a closed interview to peddle a distorted, partisan political narrative."

  • Rosenstein Sets Meeting With House Republicans

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will meet with House lawmakers on Oct. 11, according to two sources familiar with the plan. The interview, organized by the Republican-led Judiciary and Oversight Committees, follows intense pressure from President Donald Trump's top House allies to question Rosenstein about recent reports that he proposed secretly recording Trump early last year. And it comes as Trump weighs whether to fire Rosenstein. The precise format of the meeting remains unclear. Some House Republicans have insisted that Rosenstein sit for a transcribed interview that would be treated as an element of the panel’s broader, long-running investigation into the Justice Department and FBI. But House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, who invited Rosenstein to brief lawmakers, has not indicated whether he might allow Rosenstein to appear in a less-formal context to simply brief lawmakers on his response to the reports. His office declined to comment on the plan. Regardless of the format, the Oct. 11 meeting brings high stakes for Rosenstein, who appointed special counsel Robert Mueller and oversees his investigation. Trump has railed against the Mueller probe of his campaign's contacts with Russia, calling it a "witch hunt," and Democrats view the drama around Rosenstein's future as a means of exerting influence over Mueller's investigation.
