House Republicans are planning to subpoena former FBI Director James Comey and ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch as part of continuing probes into their handling of investigations into Hillary Clinton and Russian election meddling, according to a top House Democrat.
Jerrold Nadler of New York, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said Friday he was notified about the impending subpoenas and blasted Republicans for the move.
“It is unfortunate that the outgoing majority is resorting to these tactics,” he said. “These subpoenas are coming out of the blue, with very little time left on the calendar.”
Comey and Lynch were under threat of subpoena by the Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley in June of this year after the IG report revealed the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server was mishandled.
The House Republicans didn’t act fast enough with their investigations into Obama’s corrupt administration.
Comey and Lynch will likely ignore the subpoenas and delay until the Dems take over the House in January.
