Goodlatte urged to accept Trump’s offer to testify under oath

After President Trump answered “100 percent” to a question about whether he was willing to testify under oath about his conversations with then-FBI director James Comey, Congressman Luis Gutierrez called on House Judiciary Committee chair Bob Goodlatte to invite Trump to do just that.

“It is the House Judiciary Committee that should be the venue for the President to defend himself against the serious allegations of official misconduct, including but not limited to apparent attempts at obstruction of justice in the removal of Mr. Comey in order to relieve the ‘pressure’ the President was feeling from investigations related to his campaign’s ties to Russian meddling in America’s most recent presidential election,” Gutierrez, a member of the committee, wrote in a letter to Goodlatte.

“Therefore, I believe it is incumbent on you as Chairman to immediately invite the President to testify.”

The House Judiciary Committee has, to date, stayed out of probing alleged improprieties by Trump and his administration, to the dismay of Democrats on the panel.

Given Goodlatte eagerness to probe Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, his hands-off approach to Trump raises legitimate questions. Now that Trump has suggested he wants to give his side of the story under oath, why not take it up on it?

    Enemies are at our gate, our POTUS is a liar and it’s down the line partisan politics as usual for Comrade Goodlatte.
