Pavlich Rips Comey Over Public Hearing Demand: 'Out-of-Touch, Entitled Gov't Bureaucrat'
On "Outnumbered" Friday, Katie Pavlich went off on James Comey over the former FBI director's demand for a public hearing before Congress.
In a court filing Thursday, Comey's lawyers asked a judge to throw out a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee for Comey to appear for a private hearing on his handling of the Russia probe.
Comey previously took to Twitter to blast Republicans for issuing the subpoena.
Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans. I’m still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions. But I will resist a “closed door” thing because I’ve seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion. Let’s have a hearing and invite everyone to see.

Pavlich said Comey's demand is "enraging," pointing out that regular civilians don't get to negotiate terms if they are subpoenaed by Congress.
"This is a totally privileged, out-of-touch, entitled government bureaucrat, who thinks he is not only above the law, but above the same standard of the law that everybody else out in America has to comply with," Pavlich said.
She said the idea that Comey is trying to dictate the terms of the hearing is "absurd and ridiculous," calling it an affront to Americans who have to follow the letter of the law or face consequences.
Kennedy said Comey only wants to testify publicly to get attention and increase his brand, so he can charge more for speaking engagements.
"It directly benefits him, which just points to his malignant narcissism," Kennedy said.
