There was one bombshell from former FBI Director Jim Comey’s Senate testimony.
And it was about how Loretta Lynch applied political pressure on him to downplay the significance of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
So no one could believe what Nancy Pelosi had to say about the explosive revelation.
The House Minority Leader was in full damage control mode when she addressed the media about the allegations against Lynch.
She tried to downplay the serious charges leveled against Lynch by claiming Comey’s testimony was “misinterpreted.”
Fox News reports:
“Nancy Pelosi implied that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s downplaying of the Hillary Clinton private server scandal was not “such a big deal.”
Former FBI Director James Comey said under oath before Congress Thursday that Lynch had directed him to downplay Clinton’s then-ongoing private email server scandal by referring to it as a “matter,” not an “investigation.”
“It was misinterpreted,” Pelosi said at a press conference. “Matter, investigation, I don’t know that that’s such a big deal.”
Critics blasted those comments as outrageous.
There was only one way to interpret Comey’s remarks.
And that was that Lynch pressured him to make sure the FBI’s statements lined up with the Clinton campaign’s talking points.
“Former FBI Director James Comey revealed that former President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch tried to influence his statements on Hillary Clinton’s email investigation during the election.
“At one point the attorney general had directed me not to call it investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which concerned and confused me,” Comey said.
Comey made his remarks during a Senate hearing, offering testimony about the ongoing investigation into Russia’s attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election and the decision by former President Donald Trump to fire him.”
In addition, Comey stated that other examples of Lynch’s conduct had caused problems.
Breitbart also reports:
“He acknowledged during the hearing that there were other reasons why he felt he had to make the statement about Clinton’s investigation, including “one significant” reason, which had to remain classified.
He said that Lynch’s meeting on the tarmac with former president Bill Clinton during the campaign was the ultimate reason why he decided to make a public statement when the department decided not to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
“In a ultimately conclusive way, that was the thing that capped it for me, that I had to do something separately to protect the credibility of the investigation, which meant both the FBI and the Justice Department,” he said.
Comey confessed that he followed Lynch’s advice, admitting that he could have resisted more.
“I just said this isn’t a hill worth dying on and so I just said, ‘O.K.,” Comey said, but added that he was “concerned” that the Clinton campaign was referring to the investigation with the same language.”
Pelosi is a head-stuck-in-the stand liberal.
Nowhere is that more obvious than in her insane spin-doctoring defense of Loretta Lynch’s outrageous – and possibly illegal – conduct.
