Former FBI Director James Comey is appearing before a closed-door session of the House Judiciary Committee today.

"I've got lots of questions", said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) as he walked into the hearing room.

Comey resisted, arguing the GOP-led investigation in the decision-making by the FBI and the Justice Department in 2016 and 2017 was politically motivated.

Democrats complain Republicans are simply trying to fuel a conspiracy theory to protect Trump from the ongoing Russian Federation probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Phillies Trade for All-Star Shortstop Segura
They'd probably be better off prioritizing Bryce Harper or Manny Machado , as offense was a big issue for the team last season. Crawford since the potential always seemed to be there, the addition of Segura would clearly be an upgrade at the position.

"Why "Mr. Transparency" wants to go back to a setting where he knows he can not answer the questions is befuddling to me, and I don't think my fellow citizens buy that", Gowdy said. They have also urged their Republican counterparts to shield Mueller from any attempts by Trump or his newly-appointed acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, to impede the investigation.

Over the a year ago, Republicans on the two separate House panels have brought in a series of officials and said after the closed-door meetings that there is ample evidence of bias. Strzok defiantly fought with angry Republican lawmakers in a riveting hearing that featured Strzok reading aloud from his sometimes-lewd texts, and Democrats and Republicans openly yelling at each other.

"This is a total and complete waste of time", Jeffries said.

A transcript of the interview will be released "as soon as possible after the interview, in the name of our combined desire for transparency", Goodlatte said.
