    But that’s not what you claimed. You claimed that they HAD requested it and he had denied it. On multiple occasions.

    He damn well knows they want him back to testify as they have made that abundantly clear.
    No senators from the senate intelligence committee have said they want him to return.
    So spare me the Hannity/Tumpster routine. Besides, it wasn't even Hannity who prompted this - it was the White house press secretary.
    Who probably got it from Hannity

    Yes - and they have requested that he come back to testify on multiple occasions. I gave you examples of both Gowdy and Grahm asking that he come back and testify. On multiple occasions.

    And considering he has not showed up yet - well that can only mean that he has denied it...

    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.
    It’s not nonsense, it’s the rules.

    I would also like to point out that Graham is not on the Senate Intellegence committee and Gowdy is a member of the house. Have either of their respective committees filed a request to have Comey testify before them and he denied it?



    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.
    So you’re original claim was guesswork at best. As far as you know, Comey has not been formally asked back.

    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.
    Why should he? That’s not on him. If members of a committee want him to testify, they can ask through the proper channels

    There is no rule saying Comey could not get in touch with congress to testify after being told by them on multiple occasions they would like to have him back to testify....

    Well considering it's been months since they asked him to come back.... and he still hasn't showed up to testify I'd say it's a pretty good guess.

    Yes it is.

    He should feel duty-bound to go answer the questions of congress considering that's the entity of Government charged with oversight over his activities.

    But that’s not how you request someone testify. There are rules.

    Neither Graham or Gowdy are the head of their respective committees. What they say on Fox News holds no water.

    We’ve already looked up senate committee process, let’s try for the house.

    Oh look at that, it’s the same. You gotta be invited

    Witnesses do not have an inherent right to appear at a hearing but must be invited by a committee or subcommittee in order to testify; committees and subcommittees may also subpoena reluctant witnesses to appear at a hearing.

    Again: show me this link where someone must get a letter from Richard Burr before getting in touch with a congressmen who wants them to come testify?

    So far none of your so-called rules have said this. So I'm still waiting...

    Get in touch with who? “Congress”? All of it? Graham and Gowdy are in two different legislative bodies and are not the head of either of the committees they sit on.


    Well considering it's been months since they asked him to come back.... and he still hasn't showed up to testify I'd say it's a pretty good guess.
    Who asked him to come back? Neither Graham nor Gowdy sit on the senate Intellegence committee.

    You seem to have no evidence that Comey was ever actually asked to testify again before congress.

    He could get in touch with either one... Graham or Gowdy.

    Both of them wanted him to come back to testify and made that very clear.

    So what?

    I guess this is you trying to move the goal post again.

    You seem to have no evidence that he wasn't.

    Where as I have evidence of multiple congressmen asking him in public to come back and testify.

    So when it comes to evidence, I think I have more of it than you do. All you can do is cite senate rules...none of which would have prevented Comey from getting in touch with congress to work out testifying again.
