Loretta Lynch continues to find herself at the heart of scandals.
She has been accused of obstructing justice in the Hillary Clinton email probe.
Now new documents may be the smoking gun that could bring her down.
The FBI released a new batch of documents about its investigation into Hillary Clinton.
And what they show is disturbing.
“Newly released documents from the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of highly classified materials highlight a “serious, but flawed investigation hindered by a lack of cooperation,” according to a new report.
Some of the 42 pages are marked “grand jury material,” indicating that the FBI considered the investigation serious enough to prosecute before a grand jury, according to a report by Fox News.
One document shows that one of Clinton’s private attorneys, Katherine Turner, had agreed to turn over one of Clinton’s non-secure Apple iPads and two of her BlackBerrys to the FBI.
However, neither smartphone had SIM cards or Secure Digital (SD) cards, the report said. A total of 13 mobile devices identified by the FBI as potentially using clintonemail.com addresses were never located by Clinton’s lawyers, according to government watchdog group Judicial Watch’s President Tom Fitton.”
Without the SIM cards, the devices they turned over were useless.
Breitbart also reported the documents mention then Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton:
“The report notes then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s meeting on the tarmac with Bill Clinton in Phoenix, Arizona, just eight days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would not recommend prosecution of Clinton.
Comey would later testify that Lynch, his then-boss, directed him to use the term “matter” instead of “investigation” when discussing the investigation into Clinton, and he complied.
The documents were released just before the nominee for FBI Director Christopher Wray appeared before his confirmation hearing.
Two former FBI agents told Fox News they hope that “the atmosphere is changed with a new director.”
Lynch’s conduct is front and center in the growing controversy surrounding the FBI and its investigation into Clinton.
Former FBI Director James Comey testified she pressured him to refer to the investigation as a “matter” which lined up with the Clinton campaign talking points.
The FBI was also in possession of an email from a Democrat operative that claimed Lynch let it be known she would not let the Clinton investigation amount to anything.
The authenticity of this document is in question – there are reports it is fake – but Comey was so worried about it that he went public with his findings in the case because he believed Lynch was compromised.
After Comey’s testimony, conservatives demanded Lynch testify before the Senate and that Trump appoint a special counsel to investigate her for obstruction of justice.
Those calls will only increase now that these new documents are in the public domain.
