Loretta Lynch thought she escaped prosecution.
The former Attorney General was at the center of a number of scandals surrounding the 2016 election.
And now she is going to have to face the music for this criminal conduct.
Republicans To Subpoena Loretta Lynch And James Comey
The Republicans still hold the majority in the House of Representatives until January.
And there are still some members working to hold Barack Obama’s Deep State accountable for their crimes in the 2016 election.
Two particular figures have drawn Republicans attention – former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey.
And before Democrats take over the House and cover-up their misconduct forever, Republicans will take one more swing at exposing their misdeeds.
CNN’s Manu Raju broke the story that Republicans plan to subpoena Lynch and Comey next month.
New: GOP-led House Judiciary, in its final days in power, is planning to issue subpoenas to former FBI Director James Comey and President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch – on Nov. 29 and Dec. 5. GOP wants them in private setting, though they’ve said they would publicly
Democrat Jerry Nadler – who is taking over the Judiciary Committee in January – is still fighting to cover up Lynch and Comey’s possible felonies.
“It is unfortunate that the outgoing majority is resorting to these tactics,” said Nadler. “These subpoenas are coming out of the blue, with very little time left on the calendar,” he concluded.
James Comey responded by tweeting:
House Republicans can ask me anything they want but I want the American people to watch, so let’s have a public hearing. Truth is best served by transparency. Let me know when is convenient.
Loretta Lynch’s Legal Exposure
When James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June 2017, pundits expected him to deliver the smoking gun that would destroy Donald Trump.
Instead, he confirmed Trump’s account that he had told Trump three different times he was not under investigation.
In addition, Comey revealed it was Loretta Lynch who may have been guilty of obstruction of justice.
Comey testified that Lynch pressured him to refer to the Clinton email investigation as being a “matter”—which was the same talking-point the Clinton campaign was using at the time.
“At one point, the Attorney General [Lynch] told me not to call it an investigation but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused and concerned me,” Comey testified. “But that was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the [Justice] Department if we’re to close this case credibly.”
Many Trump supporters believed that should have been the last straw.
There was no need for a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign for collusion.
That story was a hoax cooked up by the Clinton campaign to excuse her loss.
But Loretta Lynch and Comey clearly cooked the books on the Clinton email investigation.
Jeff Sessions needed to appoint a special counsel to investigate this wrongdoing.
Trump supporters hope that Lynch and Comey’s testimony prompts the new Attorney General to do the right thing and put the Obama administration’s conduct during the 2016 election under the microscope.
