Former FBI Director James Comey's attorney said Thursday his client will fight a subpoena to privately testify before Congress next month about FBI actions in the 2016 campaign.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte issued subpoenas for Comey and former Attorney General Lynch.

Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, is requesting private depositions from Comey on December 3 and Lynch on December 4. The investigation will end when Democrats take over the committee in January.

Soon after the subpoena was issued, Comey reiterated his call for a public hearing. 'Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans,' Comey tweeted. 'I'm still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions. But I will resist a 'closed door' thing because I've seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion. Let's have a hearing and invite everyone to see.'

I don't trust Comey, but I actually agree with his objection to a "closed door" session.

Not only are such inquisitions used to twist things, but whatever this guy says now SHOULD be heard by the Public. I will confess to being surprised by his wish to stay in the light.

The only problem with public sessions is the way the media bastardizes the whole thing.

Public is the only way, yes, my friend.
