Skip to comments.Comey refuses to testify to Congress, McCabe pleads Fifth Amendment: Grassley
Posted on 06/18/2018 11:43:47 AM PDT by The Klingon
Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Sen. Charles E. Grassley said. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector generals report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comeys handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comeys lawyer said he was out of the country though Mr. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey was in Iowa over the weekend, visiting a key state in presidential campaigning. He has time for book tours and television interview, but apparently no time to assist this committee, said Mr. Grassley, an Iowa Republican. He said he had sought to compel the three to show up to testify, but Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, blocked him. Under committee rules, the ranking Democrat must agree with the chairman in order to issue a subpoena. Copyright © 2018 The Washington Times, LLC. Click here for reprint permission.

Integrity at work :)
Lock these SOB’s up.
These crooks were given smokescreen by this manufactured migrant kid business
Talk about obstruction of justice......
Sen. Dianne Feinstein aiding and abetting the corruption in the FBI and the DOJ.
Stupid rule, but they could still be subpoenaed by the house committee.
Comey, Lynch, and McCabe all hiding now will only make the case against them stronger, not that the MSM will report it.
Yeah, yeah, never mind that. What about the way we are treating those poor illegal immigrant children?
Imagine if ANYONE associated with President Trump pleaded the 5th at a hearing what the reaction from the Commie Democrat Media would be..and look at lil Comey, REFUSING to testify, he’s after all “Out of the country” yep, he’s in Iowa, I guess to him that’s not part of America
Just like when Feinstein said she had “No idea” about when Obama put illegal alien kids in detention centers, she said “I wasn’t really paying attention” yeah, but NOW she is paying attention because Trump has an R next to his name
Theyre called subpoenas, Chuck.
Start issuing them.
If one of us peons refused to testify, we’d be promptly tossed in the deepest darkest fed cell they could find. Proving once again, some are more equal than others.
HUBER WHERE R U ?
She said that?? She needs to resign. Yeah, right...she’ll be carried out, feet first.
Clear proof there is a There there.
Now we need someone with stones to follow through.
Sadly the only people in DC with stones (other than Trump) are KellyAnne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders and they are busy.
The farce continues.
Comey’s little maneuver looks like a Weasel move to me.
Checkmate Sessions and the DS. Now that Horowitz has the investigation of the FISA abuses under his control NOTHING will happen to Clinton, Barry or the FBI/DOJ cabal. Horowitz and Sessions have the whole sordid affair locked down tight. Nunes might as well back off and take it easy before he crosses a point of no return.
Feinstein said that to Jake Flapper..that “She didnt pay much attention during the Obama years to what was going on” but hey what Trump is doing is MUCH MUCH worse dont ya know
