Lame duck session or no, Congress isn’t quite finished yet.
Dems will be taking over committees in January, but until the, Republicans are still calling the shots.
And they’ve got a couple of Aces still up their sleeves.
They’ve got subpoenas for James Comey and Loretta Lynch.
The GOP chairman plans to subpoena the pair to discuss their decisionmaking during the 2016 presidential race, a committee aide confirmed. Republicans on the panel are seeking to have Comey appear for a deposition on Nov. 29 and for Lynch to testify Dec. 5.
Their interest in Comey goes back to some of his decisions during the 2016 cycle, including some further questions on his decision not to recommend charges for Hillary.
His answers to those questions could be particularly interesting, especially since reports have since arisen about Comey himself using non-secured devices for discussing classified information, reports that Comey has disputed.
Lynch, who is also a Republican target, has long faced GOP ire for holding a private and unscheduled meeting with former President Bill Clinton on a tarmac in Arizona during the 2016 race and while the probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server was ongoing. Republicans at the time seized on the meeting, arguing Lynch should recuse herself in the investigation.
She even faced criticism from Comey, who testified last year that he was concerned by Lynch telling the bureau to refer to the Clinton email probe as a “matter” when discussing it, which resembled the same messaging as the Clinton campaign. The episode led Lynch to say she would accept the FBI’s recommendations about the Clinton probe.

With Comey writing his letter exonerating Hillary before she was interviewed, and texts discussing the result of the ‘investigation’ into Hillary never having been in doubt, there are still a lot of unanswered questions.
What do you think, will these investigations uncover anything new? Will they throw each other under the bus? Will they be a no-show? Or will one of them flip on Obama himself to keep their own ass from facing charges.
What do you think happens next?
