    Nope, not how it works. You do t just show up at the capital building randomly because a dude on tv said you should come back.

    To testify, a witness must be invited by a committee. Before officially inviting a witness, committee staff identify and often interview prospective witnesses. Committees consider people from different backgrounds, including individuals from the executive branch, state and local governments, academia, business, and interest groups as well as other private citizens. A committee may invite as many witnesses as it chooses and may schedule multiple days of hearings.[/b]
    Once witnesses are identified, the committee chair usually sends each witness a formal letter of invitation. This letter generally provides the witness with basic information on the proposed hearing, including its purpose, subject, date, time, and location. In addition, the letter might indicate any limitation on the length of a witness’s oral testimony.

    And it wasn’t hard to get him to testify the first time. As RNG already pointed out, his original appearance was canceled because he was scheduled to attend as the Director of the FBI. But then Trump fired him. So McCabe went

    This is getting tiresome.

    I have given you several links detailing multiple committee members saying they would like to have Comey come back and testify - yet he is no where to be found. Yet I"m sure one hint from that host on ABC and he was primed and ready for that interview to peddle his book. lol

    That was my point. It takes months and months of negotiations to get Comey in front of congress - but when it comes to peddling his book he's readily available at the drop of a hat to answer questions and give interviews.

    As I have pointed out, you have to be formally invited by the Chair to testify before a committee. You have provided no links that show Comey was ever invited back to testify, let alone him denying those requests.

    Yet I"m sure one hint from that host on ABC and he was primed and ready for that interview to peddle his book. lol

    That was my point.
    Obviously ABC actually took the steps to set up an interview with either Comey or his representative.

    And this is what you literally said.

    You didn’t say he is just “nowhere to be found”. You said he denied being able to to testify before Congress.

    You would know.

    As I have demonstrated - there have been multiple committee members trying to get Comey to come back and testify.

    Regardless of what ever silliness you are trying to obfuscate with here - going on television and telling someone you would like them to come back and testify is inviting someone to come testify... and obviously Comey could oblige their request if he wanted to.

    Why did you ignore the rest of my post exactly? As I pointed out, you have to be formally invited by the Chair to testify before a committee. You have provided no links showing that Comey was invited back by Burr, let alone that he turned down such a request.

    Not sure what you are having trouble with here. Let me link the senate committee guidelines again
