Former FBI Director James Comey rejects a subpoena from House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte.
This comes after the chairman issued subpoenas Tuesday, for Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Republicans on the panel want to press the pair about their decision-making in the 2016 presidential race, and are hoping Comey will appear for a deposition on the 29th, and lynch on December 5th.
They particularly want to ask Comey why he did not recommend charges against failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her private emails.
This is the second time Comey has rejected a request to testify behind closed-doors, and House Republicans may try to hold him in contempt.
