James Comey Agrees to Congressional Deposition…

Former FBI Director James Comey has withdrawn his motion to quash a congressional subpoena and announced on twitter that he will testify to the joint Oversight and Judiciary committee this week:

Washington DC – […] In a court filing in federal court Sunday, Comey’s lawyers moved to withdraw his motion to quash the subpoena, writing he “has now reached an acceptable accommodation” with the House Judiciary Committee for voluntary testimony. (more)

Comey will likely testify on Tuesday.

  5. Isn’t the fact that full transcripts will be released the same as a public hearing? Everything will be revealed to the public either way. Surely Comey will use this to say that he can’t answer because of the sensitivity of the matter’.

      • “I expect that later today Mr. Comey will withdraw his motion to quash our subpoena and agree to voluntarily appear for a transcribed interview,” Goodlatte said.

        No mention of redactions?

          Yeah… as for “transcribed”, the WHOLE THING will be transcribed, word for word, regardless of classification. And then once it’s over with, then someone will go through the transcript and redact whatever needs to be redacted. I guess Goodlatte didn’t bother to mention that part because it would be nearly impossible to publicly release such a transcript WITHOUT having a bunch of redactions.

      No, a public hearing is where each of the democrat committee members asks ridiculous, non-germane questions to be used as sound bites by the MSM, and Comey avoids all “sensitive” questions by pleading security concerns. In a private hearing, the committee members are privy to sensitive information and have security clearance to discuss it with the subject of the hearing. The only option Comey would have is to plead the 5th.

    I wonder if…..

    Comey will make a full confession, itemizing all the crimes he has committed….. but then end with…

    “Although there is evidence, no reasonable prosecutor would take such a case”
    It worked before.

    What Difference Does It Make?

    The “hearing” will probably be postponed. The month, I mean week of “mourning” will give those a$$holes an excuse to push it up to January. They have an opening on the 4th or 5th….a big one!

    This was a transparent attempt to get out of pointed questioning under oath. Or at least the small possibility of it.

    President Trump’s natural instinct is to build things and be positive, but he is going to have to put a boot up their ass. No way around it.

    Comey’s testimony will be a waste of time, adding nothing to the current body of public knowledge. Any meaningful questions addressing information not already in the public domain will be side-stepped as being either classified or relevant to any of a myriad of ongoing investigations. It’s more GOPe grandstanding.

    • Sherri Young says:

      It is a closed door hearing. They can discuss classified material. That apparently is what Comey was hoping to avoid by pressing for a public hearing. Also, in closed door hearings, Goodlatte favors having a handful of congressmen handle the questioning. There won’t be the grandstanding that is common in the open hearings wherein every congressman gets five minutes in which to try to appear smart and faithful to the party. Should not expect any Spartacus moments.

      • dallasdan says:

        The transcript from the closed door hearing will be edited/redacted to eliminate any information Comey or a Dem committee member deems as either classified or relevant to an ongoing investigation. Moreover, Comey will rebut after-the-fact anything in the transcript that challenges his veracity or forthrightness. We will learn nothing new.

        “Grateful for a fair hearing from judge. Hard to protect my rights without being in contempt, which I don’t believe in,” Comey said in a Twitter post. “So will sit in the dark, but Republicans agree I’m free to talk when done and transcript released in 24 hours. This is the closest I can get to public testimony.”

        https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/02/politics/comey-house-gop/index.html

        My point on “grandstanding” referred to the GOP members looking for more self-aggrandizing publicity. Given that the mountain of existing evidence of Comey’s criminality has not yet resulted in any judicial action against him, I see the hearing as a sham. JMO

        Sorry I did not more fully explain my thoughts in my initial comment.

    I wonder if the democrats told him to withdraw motion in fear that new law would prevent them from questioning people when they were in charge.
