FBI Director Comey refused to testify on Clinton emails

FBI Director James Comey refused to attend a classified briefing with the House Oversight Committee despite receiving an invitation to testify about the bureau's reluctance to disclose thousands of pages of evidence compiled in its year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email use.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the committee's top Democrat, said Monday that Comey had declined to appear at the meeting because he had "already bent over backwards" to explain the FBI's decision-making in the Clinton email case.

But Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee, disputed the suggestion that he had invited Comey to the public hearing on redactions in notes from the Clinton email case, noting he had discussed specific points of concern in a personal phone call with the FBI director but had not issued a subpoena for Comey's presence at the hearing.

Chaffetz called the hearing to question officials about why whole and partial documents had been withheld from Congress, including unclassified files.

God I hope Trump wins and cleans house of the crooked bureaucrats and appoints some special prosecutors to put Hillary and all of her fellow conspirators in prison.

Chaffetz: It's over when it's over. There's more to this case that needs answers. It's what we do.
Cummings: It's over when I say it is. I don't want you to find more and I'm not interested in answers. It's what I do.

Cummings is Congress's version of the village idiot.

Cummings is a disgrace to Maryland and the United States. All this cover-up should tell people something.
