Loretta Lynch cannot outrun her conduct in the Clinton email investigation.
Did she give favorable treatment to Hillary?
An explosive secret email could provide a final answer.
Former FBI Director James Comey testified that part of the reason he went public was because he believed then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch was compromised.
The FBI had in its possession an email obtained by hackers from a Democrat operative that stated that Loretta Lynch would keep the investigation into Hillary’s private server under control.
Comey feared the email would become public and forever taint the investigation.
So he held his famous July 6th press event where he detailed all of Clinton’s wrongdoing, but ultimately decided to not recommend criminal charges based on a faulty reading of the law.
The email about Lynch later became the subject of much controversy when it was reported that it was fake.
Now the Senate wants to get to the bottom of this, and the Judiciary Committee wants her testimony.
Politico reports Lynch is willing to cooperate:
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged Thursday to cooperate with a Senate Judiciary Committee investigation into whether she assured the Hillary Clinton campaign last year that the FBI probe into Clinton’s emails wouldn’t go too far.
In a statement from her lawyer, Lynch also denied ever making such an assurance to a former Clinton campaign aide, Amanda Renteria — an allegation fueled by a Russian intelligence memo that’s credibility has been called into question.
“Ms. Lynch does not know Ms. Renteria, did not discuss the Clinton email investigation with Ms. Renteria, and did not communicate to Ms. Renteria, either in words or in substance, that ‘she would not let the FBI investigation into Clinton go too far,’ says a letter Thursday from her attorney, Robert Raben, to the leaders of the Judiciary panel.
“Likewise,” the letter continues, “to the best of her knowledge and recollection, neither Ms. Lynch nor any representative of the Office of the Attorney General discussed the Clinton email investigation with Ms. Renteria, Representative [Debbie] Wasserman Schultz or her staff, or any DNC official.”
The letter says Lynch “intends to cooperate fully” with the Senate probe.
Comey’s testimony also revealed Lynch may have obstructed justice.
Comey claimed Lynch instructed him to refer to the Clinton investigation as a “matter.”
The former FBI Director said this made him uncomfortable because the Attorney General was asking him to use language that matched up with Clinton campaign talking points.
Senate investigators would like to get to the bottom of this, as well as her meeting on her government plane with former President Clinton at a Phoenix airport.
This meeting came just days before Comey announced Clinton would not be facing charges.
Lynch claimed they just discussed grandkids.
Critics howled that this meeting was evidence the investigation was rigged.
Now the Senate wants to put Lynch in the hot seat and make her answer for these actions.
We will keep you up to date on any new developments in this case.
