Former FBI Director James Comey was set to testify before the House of Representatives Oversight Committee this week, but out of nowhere he made a rather strange announcement that reeks of corruption.
The Gateway Pundit reports that Comey was due to testify on Wednesday, but unexpectedly called Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Chairman of the Oversight & Government Reform Committee, to postpone the hearing.
For some reason, he wants to speak to the head of the special counsel into President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, Robert Mueller, before he goes public with his testimony.

Spoke with Comey. He wants to speak with Special Counsel prior to public testimony. Hearing Wed postponed. @GOPoversight

As the Pundit noted, Politico first reported the story with the headline stating that Comey postponed due to wanting to meet with Mueller, which was posted to Drudge. However, as soon as the story started gaining traction, the left-wing publication changed the headline altogether to make it sound as if Chaffetz was the one responsible for the delay.
Why Comey wants to speak to Mueller is unknown; however, the Pundit has some insight into what his reasoning may be:
Comey is now famous for having investigated and refused to press charges against Bill and Hillary Clinton at least four different times in his career in Washington, DC while his family appears to have benefitted nicely. Meuller is now famous for having delivered highly enriched uranium to Russia during his career as Head of the FBI and also is known for caving to the demands of Muslim groups during this same time span.
Now we are supposed to expect that these two fair minded individuals are going to meet within the next week before Comey speaks to Congress and this is all ok? Do you think that Comey will have the conversation recorded or will it be like the discussion Comey had with Hillary Clinton last year in regards to her criminal acts while as Secretary of State and not record the discussion?
It looks like the swamp is striking again.
