Bad news continues to pour in for Loretta Lynch.
Americans are demanding a special counsel investigate her conduct during the Clinton email probe.
Now new developments reveal even more devastating news for Lynch.
Former FBI Director James Comey rocked Washington when he testified that Lynch had leaned on him to make sure the FBI’s public statements matched the Clinton campaign’s talking points in calling Hillary’s email investigation a “matter”.
That was bad enough.
But in a closed session of the Intelligence Committee, Comey described a second encounter with Lynch that had disturbed him because she attempted to exert political influence over the investigation.
“Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter…
… In multiple private sessions over the last few months, Comey has told lawmakers about a second, later confrontation with Lynch shortly before the email probe was shut down.
Comey told lawmakers in the close door session that he raised his concern with the attorney general that she had created a conflict of interest by meeting with Clinton’s husband, the former President Bill Clinton, on an airport tarmac while the investigation was ongoing.
During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.
Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office,” said one source who was briefed.”
In more bad news for Lynch, Circa reported that Comey’s private testimony contradicted media reports that an email the FBI obtained from Russian hackers showed Loretta Lynch had given assurances that the Justice Department would let Hillary off the hook was fake:
“The sources also said that Comey’s testimony in private conflicted with recent reports in the news media suggesting the FBI had intercepted an email between Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who at the time was the Democratic Party chairwoman, and a third party. Those media reports suggested that the information about the email was more than likely fake and a ruse possibly planted by the Russians. The Washington Post story suggested the dubious email is what motivated Comey, who still was not sure of the intelligence, to come forward with his findings in the Clinton investigation and shut down the case. “
Donald Trump responded to this bombshell news by calling out Lynch for her illegal behavior.
A.G. Lynch made law enforcement decisions for political purposes…gave Hillary Clinton a free pass and protection. Totally illegal!
