By MICHAEL BALSAMO, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) 11/30 — A hearing has been scheduled in former FBI director James Comey’s challenge to a subpoena from the House of Representatives.
Comey was subpoenaed to appear before the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee to answer questions about the FBI and decisions made during the 2016 presidential election, when Democrat Hillary Clinton was cleared in a probe into her email use and agents opened an investigation into Republican Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Comey has said he’s willing to answer questions at a public hearing. His lawyers say they fear a closed-door setting would lead to “selective leaking.”
