Outgoing Rep. Trey Gowdy unloaded on former FBI chief James Comey Monday; blasting the disgraced bureau boss over his demands for a “public hearing” regarding his botched investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) notified colleagues last week that he will subpoena Comey for a closed-door deposition Nov. 29 and Lynch for Dec. 5, as part of the investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe and the Russia investigation,” writes Fox News.
“House Republicans can ask me anything they want but I want the American people to watch, so let’s have a public hearing. Truth is best served by transparency. Let me know when is convenient,” responded Comey.

“Did he interview Hillary Clinton in public? Did he interview George Papadopoulos in public? Did he interview Michael Flynn in public? Did he interview Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills — has the FBI ever conducted an interview in public? And has the FBI ever conducted an interview where you’re limited to five minutes, which is what happens in congressional hearings?” Gowdy fired-back.
COMEY CASHES IN: Disgraced FBI Boss’s New Book OUTSELLING Clinton, Wolff
Former FBI director James Comey’s Trump-bashing memoir shot to the top of the best-seller list Tuesday; outperforming both Hillary Clinton’s and Michael Wolff’s total sales combined.
According to the New York Times, Comey’s tell-all book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership” blasted through sales expectations after his media-hyped publicity tour; stopping by The View, The Late Show, and countless other liberal outlets.
“Mr. Comey’s publisher, Flatiron Books, has ordered multiple reprints to meet demand, and now has more than a million copies in print,” writes the Times. “The early sales figures for Mr. Comey’s book dwarfed other recent political best sellers.”
Initial sales figures have the book selling over 600,000 copies.
The former FBI director made national headlines last week after his public attacks against President Trump; calling the Commander-in-Chief a “mob boss” acting as the head of an organized crime family.
COMEY CHAOS: Giuliani Suggests ‘PROSECUTING COMEY’ if FBI Spied on Trump
President Trump’s newest lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t hold back when commenting on recent revelations the FBI may have spied on the Trump campaign; saying if true James Comey should be “prosecuted.”
Giuliani was speaking with Fox News Thursday when he was asked to comment on new accusations the FBI had an “inside man” interacting with the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 race for the White House.
If Comey was involved, said Giuliani, “he should be prosecuted… If there’s a spy, they got nothing from it.”
President Trump weighed-in on the revelations Thursday, saying we are “now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history.”
“Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History…and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction. The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money!”
