MR. COMEY IN MAN­HAT­TAN

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Time passes. Former FBI di­rec­tor James B. Comey will of­fer pri­vate tes­ti­mony Fri­day on Capi­tol Hill, re­spond­ing to a sub­poena by House Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee Chair­man Bob Good­latte, Vir­ginia Repub­li­can — with a tran­script of his tes­ti­mony to be re­leased af­ter­ward.

“Repub­li­cans agree I’m free to talk when done and tran­script re­leased in 24 hours. This is the clos­est I can get to pub­lic tes­ti­mony,” Mr. Comey tweeted ear­lier this week.

He will have a chance to talk this week­end. Mr. Comey will ap­pear at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, a fa­vorite fo­rum for high-pro­file folk. Ad­mis­sion is $50; the event, hosted by NBC News po­lit­i­cal an­a­lyst Ni­colle Wal­lace, is sold out.

“In this sure-to-be rivet­ing talk, he shares in­sights into the strongholds and fault lines ex­ist­ing at the high­est lev­els of jus­tice in Amer­ica, and the chal­lenges he faced in nav­i­gat­ing them,” the event or­ga­niz­ers note. “He will dis­cuss his rise from Yonkers na­tive to pros­e­cu­tor, deputy at­tor­ney gen­eral, pri­vate lawyer, law pro­fes­sor, and fi­nally, FBI di­rec­tor, lead­ing and driv­ing our jus­tice sys­tem. Hear first­hand about Comey’s views on eth­i­cal lead­er­ship, and about the val­ues he sees as crit­i­cal to jus­tice and to our na­tional se­cu­rity.”
