Nov 24, 2018, 00:10
The House Judiciary Committee has issued subpoenas for former FBI director James Comey and former attorney general Loretta Lynch to appear for closed-door interviews in a probe of how federal law enforcement officials handled investigations of Hillary Clinton's emails and the Trump campaign's alleged Russian Federation ties.
Last week, when Democrats were warned that Comey and Lynch would likely be subpoenaed, Judiciary panel ranking Democrat, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, N.Y., admonished panel Republicans for issuing them "out of the blue, with very little time left on the calendar".
Comey announced his subpoena in a tweetThanksgiving morning, saying he's "happy to sit in the light and answer all questions" but will "resist" a closed-door questioning session.
Comey, who was sacked by Trump, tweeted of House Republicans: "I've seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion". "Got a subpoena from House Republicans".

The subpoenas come three weeks before the House Judiciary Committee switches hands.
Additionally, Comey's attorney on Thursday issued a statement saying that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director would fight the subpoena in court unless House Republicans agreed to let the hearing take place in public.
