[Ed. – What’s to mull? Do it. Note that Comey is willing to provide public testimony because he can claim numerous things mustn’t be disclosed in public. Can’t make that excuse in a closed-door session.]
House Republicans are mulling whether to issue a subpoena to compel former FBI Director James Comey to testify on Capitol Hill about the bureau’s actions before the 2016 election.
A Republican House Judiciary Committee aide said the committee invited Comey to come in for a closed-door transcribed interview but Comey declined the invitation. Republicans are now prepared to issue a subpoena to compel his appearance, the aide told Fox News.
Comey’s lawyer, David Kelley, had sent a letter to the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees this week refusing a closed door deposition but saying the former director was open to public testimony.
