Imagine that. Now that the IG report is out, Comey refuses to come before Congress and testify before the Senate Judiciary committee. As does Loretta Lynch.
And McCabe…we’ll he’s pleading the 5th Amendment. Yeah, probably a good move on his part:
WASHINGTON TIMES – Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Sen. Charles E. Grassley said.
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation.
Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Mr. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey was in Iowa over the weekend, visiting a key state in presidential campaigning.
“He has time for book tours and television interview, but apparently no time to assist this committee,” said Mr. Grassley, an Iowa Republican.
He said he had sought to compel the three to show up to testify, but Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, blocked him. Under committee rules, the ranking Democrat must agree with the chairman in order to issue a subpoena.
I didn’t realize Iowa was out country!
But really, I don’t think this report is a surprise to anyone. They’re all guilty and the last thing they are going to do is help out any potential investigation against them.
UPDATE: This is probably why…
Grassley: "Is the IG investigating Comey's handling of his memos about Trump?"
Horowitz: "Yes, we're investigating it and will produce a report on it."
