"Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans", Comey tweeted.

The subpoenas, issued Wednesday by Rep. Robert W. Goodlatte, R-Va., the committee's chairman, require Comey and Lynch to appear in closed-door sessions with members of Goodlatte's committee and the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

"Witnesses have an obligation to comply with committee subpoenas", he said in a statement, "but the committee has an obligation to issue those subpoenas with care".

They particularly want to ask Comey why he did not recommend charges against failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her private emails. "Accordingly, Mr. Comey will resist in Court this abuse of process", he said.

Comey says he'll resist appearing behind closed doors December 3.

House Republicans have been investigating FBI actions in the 2016 campaign, but that probe will end when Democrats take over the committee in January. "Let's have a hearing and invite everyone to see", he added.

He made all eight of his fourth-quarter free throws, including the two from the flagrant foul on Portland's C.J. He scored 44 points on 13-of-19 shooting, also added 10 rebounds and nine assists.

The development comes after the fired FBI chief refused a request in October by the House Judiciary Committee to testify behind closed doors about alleged political bias at the bureau and Justice Department. Last week, Bloomberg reported that GOP lawmakers were planning to subpoena Comey along with ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch as part of continuing probes into their handling of investigations into Hillary Clinton and Russian election interference.

"While the authority for congressional subpoenas is broad, it does not cover the right to misuse closed hearings as a political stunt to promote political as opposed to legislative agendas", Comey's attorney, David Kelly, said Thursday, CNN reported.

"Months ago, Director Comey and Attorney General Lynch both indicated their willingness to answer the Chairman's questions voluntarily", Nadler wrote.
