Comey vows to resist subpoena

Sara CarterFormer FBI Director James Comey announced he would “resist” the Republican subpoena for him to appear in a closed-door hearing, claiming they would “selectively leak” and “distort” his testimony.

Taking to Twitter on Thanksgiving Day, Comey wrote, “Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans. I’m still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions. But I will resist a “closed door” thing because I’ve seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion. Let’s have a hearing and invite everyone to see.”

Of course he will "resist". He's guilty. In a private hearing he can't refuse to answer on the basis of classified information. In a public hearing he gets fake transparency and can refuse to answer anything at all.

And he knows he only needs to resist long enough for the Democrats to take over.
