The committee's chairman Senator Richard Burr (his friends call him "Ironsides") and Senator Mark Warner, the rank Democrat, announced Friday that Mr. Comey will testify before the committee in an open setting with a date not yet set.
Burr hopes Comey's testimony will implicate the Democratic Party in the Russian probe, while Warner is hoping for a presidential impeachment followed by an old fashioned hanging.
Burr explained that the committee hopes to hear about Comey's role in the development of the U.S. intelligence agencies' assessment regarding the Russian interference in last year's election (that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange denies). He hopes Comey's testimony will answer some of the questions that have surfaced since he was suddenly fired by President Trump.
This news comes after reports in the "failed" New York Times and Washington Post about the fallout over the Comey firing and the inquiry into the Russian role on the election as well as possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
The Times reported that Trump told the Russians that Comey was a "nut job" whose firing relieved "great pressure" on him. For more on the Times story, go here.
Without factual evidence of Trump's alleged statement about Comey's status as a nut job, Rep. Elijah Cummings, (D-MD) said the comment by the President was "astonishing and extremely troubling," while the factual evidence of Hillary Clinton's private and illegal server was just another day at the office.
Cummings may have been a true civil rights leader back in the day, but today he's nothing short of an empty lunchbox.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was named Special Counsel for the Russian investigation regarding their involvement in our presidential campaign last year.
Mueller, a good friend of James Comey, is expected to be impartial. (LOL)
