Former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify yet again after frustrated Republicans learned that he sent the agents that interviewed Michael Flynn in 2017.

The former official has already testified before the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, where he said some form of “I don’t know” around 245 times, according to Fox News. Republicans lawmakers, including President Donald Trump, shared their frustration with the alleged lack of transparency.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) also spoke out about his issues with Comey after the first hearing.

“Comey just thinks he’s always right, and … it doesn’t matter if everyone else concludes he did wrong,” Gowdy said. “He knows better. So that’s what it’s like to interview an amnesiac with incredible hubris.”

Comey also came under fire for admitting he bypassed protocol when sending agents to speak with Flynn, saying it was “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more […] organized administration.”

Watch the video below:

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said in an interview with Fox News that the Flynn case may be thrown out due to the FBI’s mishandling of the situation.

“I would not be surprised a bit if the conviction of Flynn is overturned, because of the Justice Department and FBI’s misconduct — and that in fact, we go potentially all the way to the Supreme Court, with new protections — when the FBI and the Department of Justice lies to someone and tricks them into making statements, and then charges them with a lie they entrapped them in. … This kind of conduct we haven’t seen in a long time.”

Comey’s testimony will be a closed-door meeting on Monday, very similar to the setup of the previous meeting.

Whether it’s overturned or he receives a full pardon, Flynn does not deserve this treatment. The key accusers–Comey, McCabe, the Tleilaxu face-dancer called Strzok–were all forced out in disgrace.

Flynn had a career of service, working his way up through the ranks to Lt. Gen. What service did the disgraced and fired corruptocrats provide? Laying pipe with co-workers does not count.
