  • Trump Claims His Approval Rating Would be 75% if Not for the 'Russian Witch Hunt'

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.

"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.
