House GOP set to grill Comey

Republicans are poised to grill former FBI Director James Comey on Friday in what could be the final act in a dramatic effort to probe allegations of bias at the Justice Department before Democrats take over the House.

The interview comes just weeks before the House GOP will turn over the majority to Democrats, who are expected to launch a slew of investigations into President Trump, his administration and his business when they take hold of committee gavels.

Comey’s appearance will once again shift focus to a figure who has drawn ire from both Democrats and Republicans for his decisions in 2016 and has remade himself into one of Trump’s fiercest critics since the president ousted him as FBI director last year.

It comes after months of wrangling between House Republicans and Comey, who last week asked a federal court in D.C. to quash a subpoena issued by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) that ordered him to testify behind closed doors.

2. I just hope (pray) that Comey's wearing a wire at this so-called "hearing".

3. I've had questions about Comey

For example: Don't all FBI Directors have a 10 year term, since J. Edgar Hoover?
Is Trump the first president to fire an FBI director, since Hoover?
Aside from evading prosecution, why would a president fire an FBI director?

4. Actually Clinton fired William Session in July 1993

because of ethical issues involving his use of FBI resources. It was fairly uncontroversial.

5. Are the gop in congress

Being ordered to do this by trump for revenge and to use against him to instigate criminal charges because the DOJ wouldn't? Its abuse of power by this illegitimate person in the oval office. More trying to get anything to use to charge them with criminal acts to use against them because he's getting exposed for his criminal acts. Putin did this in russia too.

6. Every autocrat, i.e. DICTATOR, in history has played from this same playbook.

Only corrupt, morally bankrupt and damaged people wield power in this manner. Shitler is a gutless, ignorant, narcissistic boil on the ass of society and this spiritually vacant mobster and his crime family managed to claw and corrupt his way into the most powerful position on Earth and his allies and toadies in the U.S. version of the politbureau are aiding and abetting his criminal activities.
