House Judiciary Committee subpoenas Loretta Lynch and James Comey

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte has issued subpoenas for former FBI Director James B. Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, demanding that both answer questions about the Department of Justice’s actions during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Mr. Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, issued the subpoenas late Wednesday to get their testimony on the record before Democrats take over the House in January. The Democrats are expected to terminate the GOP probe into whether anti-Trump bias within the ranks of the FBI and Justice Department influenced investigations related to the election.

The committee is requesting private depositions from Mr. Comey on Dec. 3 and Ms. Lynch on Dec. 4, according to the subpoenas.

Mr. Comey, who had spurned recent committee requests to testify, confirmed Thursday on Twitter that he had received a subpoena but said he will refuse to testify unless it is in a public hearing.
