BOMBSHELL! House Republicans to Subpoena James Comey and Loretta Lynch
House Republicans have made plans to Subpoena James Comey and Loretta Lynch.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) is planning to subpoena former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to have them testify in front of Congress before the GOP loses control of the House, according to The Hill.
Goodlatte plans to question the two on matters relating to their “decision making” during the 2016 presidential race, a committee aide told the publication.
The GOP members plans to question Comey on his controversial decision to not recommend a criminal indictment against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.
Republican committee members are looking to have Comey testify on November 29, and Lynch on December 5.
They also wish to ask Comey about his the memos he kept of his meetings and conversations with President Trump.
Comey has previously rejected the committee’s request for him to appear privately before the GOP-led inquiry, saying he would rather testify publicly instead.
Another potential witness still hanging over the GOP-led investigation is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Conservatives on the panels demanded that Rosenstein appear to answer their questions about his reported discussion of wearing a wire to record the President and the 25th Amendment, but a scheduled meeting with Rosenstein last month was postponed, and it has not been rescheduled.
