    Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said it is "stunning" to see the disparate way the FBI handling the Hillary Clinton investigation and the probe into the Trump presidential campaign. Goodlatte appeared on FOX News' Sunday Morning Futures with host Maria Bartiromo. Goodlatte said he is scheduling the interview of people like former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI director James Comey, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Nellie Ohr, Glenn Simpson and others. Goodlatte said if they don't appear voluntarily he would subpoena them.

    House Republicans who have spent the last two years arguing that there was bias in President Barack Obama’s Justice Department are preparing to subpoena two key witnesses in the final weeks of their majority — former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., has notified colleagues that he will subpoena Comey for a closed-door deposition Nov. 29 and Lynch for Dec. 5, according to a person familiar with the subpoenas. The person declined to be identified because the person was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The subpoenas...

    Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly used his private Gmail account hundreds of times to discuss matters related to his work. The New York Post, citing documents obtained by a conservative watchdog group, reported Friday that Comey discussed FBI-related business with his chief of staff on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which the paper obtained. The Post noted that at least seven of the messages related to Comey's personal email correspondence were not released by the Department of Justice (DOJ) because they were deemed too sensitive. The DOJ said the messages “disclose techniques and procedures for law enforcement...
  • James Comey discussed sensitive FBI business on his private email [hundreds of times]

    Fired FBI chief James Comey used his private Gmail account hundreds of times to conduct government business — and at least seven of those messages were deemed so sensitive by the Justice Department that they declined to release them. The former top G-man repeatedly claimed he only used his private account for “incidental” purposes and never for anything that was classified — and that appears to be true. But Justice acknowledged in response to a Freedom of Information request that Comey and his chief of staff discussed government business on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which were obtained...

    "Hello. I'm a REPUBLICAN pollster and I would like to ask you a few questions." If anybody tells you that they or their spouses received such a phone call, they are lying. Why? Because political pollsters of all stripes (Republican and Democrat) NEVER identify their party affiliation during interviews so as not to taint the sample. Therefore what is one to make of self-sainted former FBI Director James Comey's November 3 tweet that a Republican pollster called up his wife and that she replied with the following response?

    Papadopoulos Wants Congress To Inspect Cash He Was Given During FBI CIA ‘Sting Operation’ George Papadopoulos wants to give Congress $10,000 in cash. But the offer, which Papadopoulos extended this week, is not a campaign contribution or a bribery attempt. Instead, the former Trump campaign aide wants lawmakers to inspect a stack of $100 bills he was given during a peculiar meeting he had in a hotel room in Israel in July 2017, just days before he was arrested by the FBI. “I’m actually trying to bring that money back somehow so that Congress can investigate it because I am...

    Former FBI Director James Comey donated the maximum legal amount to Democratic candidate Jennifer Wexton as she campaigns to unseat vulnerable Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock (R) in November. Comey donated $2,700 to Wexton's campaign in September as the Virginia Democrat continues to gain momentum in the state's hotly-contested 10th congressional district race, Federal Election Commission filings show. The former FBI head has traditionally donated to Republican campaigns, including Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign and John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008. However, Comey, who was fired by President Trump in May 2017, revealed earlier this year that he was leaving the...

    Former FBI Director James Comey has rejected a request from Republicans in Congress to sit for a closed-door interview as part of their efforts to probe allegations of bias at the Justice Department and the FBI. Comey instead offered to testify publicly, according to a letter sent by his attorney to leaders of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Monday. “Mr. Comey respectfully declines your request for a private interview,” David Kelley, Comey’s attorney, wrote in the letter, which was obtained by The Hill. “He would, however, welcome the opportunity to testify at a public hearing.” Reps. Bob Goodlatte...

    Former FBI Director James Comey said Sunday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's "obvious lies" about his high school yearbook hint at "bigger lies" that may be uncovered. Comey wrote that FBI agents are up to the task of unearthing the truth of sexual assault allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford and others, and that he believes Kavanaugh's Thursday testimony could suggest trouble.

    ... If truth were the only goal, there would be no clock, and the investigation wouldn’t have been sought after the Senate Judiciary Committee already endorsed the nominee. Instead, it seems that the Republican goal is to be able to say there was an investigation and it didn’t change their view, while the Democrats hope for incriminating evidence to derail the nominee. Although the process is deeply flawed, and apparently designed to thwart the fact-gathering process, the F.B.I. is up for this. It’s not as hard as Republicans hope it will be. F.B.I. agents are experts at interviewing people and...

    I'm sure I'm not the first here to catch this; This probably has been mentioned in the comments in one of the many threads about Rosenstein's involvement in what was actually Comey's attempted coup-d'etat. But given that HOLY COW! AMERICA HAD A REAL-LIFE ATTEMPTED COUP D'ETAT!!!, I think this deserves being bumped up into an article. Rosenstein disputed the core of the story, that the head of the FBI and the head of the Justice Department had formal discussions about a coup-d'etat. Here's what Rosenstein DID say: "The New York Times story is inaccurate and factually incorrect. I will not...

    WASHINGTON—President Trump postponed the declassification and release of sensitive documents related to the investigation into his campaign’s links to Russian election interference, saying the matter would go to the Justice Department’s internal watchdog for further investigation. In a Friday morning tweet, Mr. Trump said the inspector general of the Justice Department would “review these documents on an expedited basis,” backing away from a previously announced plan to make public a secret surveillance warrant and the text messages of top law-enforcement officials. “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated...

Is there any truth to this?” Hannity asked Sara Carter. “Absolutely, Sean. With the number of sources that I have been...

    CBS is in talks for the rights to produce a miniseries based on "A Higher Loyalty," former FBI Director James Comey's memoir of his time in the FBI, including his service under President Trump. CNBC reported Tuesday that the network is close to a deal for the series's rights after reportedly winning an auction for the story earlier this month. CBS Television Studios declined to comment to CNBC, but a source close to the negotiations described the auction process as "a highly competitive situation," according to the report.

    Former FBI Director James Comey said Monday he took inspiration from a visit to Mount Rushmore in a brief message sent amid a chaotic day of headlines that included an order from President Trump to declassify Comey's text messages related to the Russia investigation. "Enjoyed today’s visit: An inspiring reminder that we always emerge stronger from hard times," Comey tweeted along with a photo in front of the memorial in South Dakota. Comey, who was fired in May 2017 and regularly tweets both subtle and overt criticisms of Trump, sent his latest message a short time after the president ordered...
