Former FBI chief Comey arrives for GOP interview

Former FBI chief Comey arrives for GOP interview

House Republicans are interviewing James Comey behind closed doors Friday, hauling the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director to Capitol Hill one final time before they cede power to Democrats in January.

The interview comes as GOP lawmakers are wrapping up a yearlong investigation into decisions made at the Justice Department during the 2016 presidential election.

Comey initially resisted the subpoena from committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), saying he wanted a public hearing.

Former FBI Director James Comey is sworn in during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, June 8, 2017.

The latest Game of Throne trailer teases the series' final season
HBO has released the first tease for the upcoming final season of the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones . If the result is dragonglass, it's worth noting that's one of the few ways White Walkers can be killed .

"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. He had argued that Republicans would selectively leak details from the interview.

When asked why they did not want Comey to testify in public as he requested, North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows, who will be taking part in the questioning, said they often discuss classified intelligence.

Democrats, who will also attend the interview, have said the Republican investigation is merely a way to distract from and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. 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.
