The Trumpsters have convinced themselves its true because they heared Hannity say it. This is the same guy that was pushing the Seth Rich conspiracy and who says he is not a journalist just a TV personality. Again I repeat Hannity and the truth arenít together much as they donít seem to ever come together.
    I'm sure if Comey wanted to oblige the intelligence committee and testify he could do so without waiting for another formal request.

    He damn well knows they want him back to testify as they have made that abundantly clear.

    So spare me the Hannity/Tumpster routine. Besides, it wasn't even Hannity who prompted this - it was the White house press secretary.

    lol

    You should really not pay any attention to Eve if you want to know where I get my information from. That would be doing yourself a great disservice.

    It was the White House who said congress has been trying to get Comey to come testify. It wasn't Hannity...

    And considering I have seen Gowdy and Grahn both say they want him back to testify personally, I'm inclined to believe them...

    Do you have a link to where Burr has done so and Comey has declined?
    I've already told you the facts.

    The facts are they want Comey back to testify yet it's been months and he's certainly made no effort to oblige them.

    No, the facts are if Comey really wanted to testify he would show some initiative and go a little out of his way to oblige the committee members who have made it clear they want him to come back.

    Do you have a link saying that someone must have a letter from Richard Burr before they can get in touch with committee members and work out a testimony?

    Then it should be easy for you to provide a link to Richard Burr sending a formal letter of invitation to Comey and him denying it.

    And it should be easy for you to provide a link saying that someone must have a letter from Richard Burr before they can contact committee members interested in having them back to testimony.

    So can I see this link?

    Now you’re moving the goal posts. Comey already testified. If the committee members want him to return, it’s on them to request it.

    Do you have a link saying that someone must have a letter from Richard Burr before they can get in touch with committee members and work out a testimony?
    To testify, a witness must be invited by a committee
    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.

    If they really wanted Comey to return, they would send a formal letter inviting him to set it up.

    If they want him him to come back so bad, why haven’t they?

    No, that's what you did actually.

    So show me a link proving someone must have a letter from Richard Richard Burr to accept an invitation to come back and testify in congress? Comey could have called up Gowdy or Grahm when they asked him to come back and testify to work something out. This idea that he has to wait for a formal letter from Richard Burr or whatever is nonsense.

    Considering they were all over the television saying they wanted him to come back, I think it's fairly obvious they wanted him to come back. As to what kind of letters he may or may not have been sent - I don't know as I'm not privy to Jame's comey's mailbox.

    But what I do know is it was obvious they wanted him to come back to testify and from all accounts Comey has made no effort to oblige them.
