Fresh off the news that Donald Trump wanted the Justice Department to prosecute James Comey and Hillary Clinton, House Republicans followed through on their threat to subpoena Comey for private testimony. Comey is not having it—he’ll testify publicly or not at all, he says.

According to Comey’s lawyer, Dan Richman, “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.”

With Democrats taking control of the House in early January, Comey doesn’t have to draw this out for too long to win.
