Last December, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified about the FBI spying on Donald Trump.
Lawmakers wanted Lynch to explain her role in one of the biggest scandals in American political history.
And what Lynch confessed about the Obama administration and the FBI spying on Trump will leave you speechless.
Late last year, Republicans in Congress finally got their shot at Loretta Lynch.
As Barack Obama’s Attorney General, she was in the catbird seat for the FBI’s campaign to frame Donald Trump for collusion with Russia.
But instead of coming clean and telling the truth, Lynch continued the cover-up by claiming convenient memory losses about key Department of Justice decisions made on her watch.
One of the most controversial FBI undertakings in the 2016 election was the decision to apply for a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Page was named in the fake news Christopher Steele dossier as a key go-between for the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
FBI agents used the Steele dossier as their central piece of evidence to convince a judge to approve spying on Page.
But they never told the court that the dossier was unverified gossip paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat National Committee.
Lawmakers grilled Lynch about this warrant application, but Lynch said she could not remember a thing about it.
Investigative journalist Sara Carter reports that a Congressional aide told her:
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Congressional lawmakers in closed door testimony that despite the DOJ having approved the FBI warrant and renewals to spy on Carter Page, she did not recall the applications, did not remember the details contained in the applications or the circumstances surrounding conversations about the warrant, according to testimony reviewed by SaraACarter.com.
Lynch “appeared to have amnesia” during her testimony that she delivered in December before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, said one congressional official, who had knowledge of the hearing.
Few people believe Lynch remembers nothing about the Carter Page FISA warrant application.
The FBI wanted to spy on a former campaign aide of the opposition party’s Presidential nominee.
The FBI also believed Trump was compromised by the Russian government.
But there is zero chance the Attorney General was not intimately aware of every detail in what may be the most sensitive investigation in the history of the FBI.
Lynch’s story only leads to more questions.
What is she hiding?
And if she is telling the truth – why did the FBI and other Justice Department officials conceal key details about the investigation from the Attorney General?
Either way, Lynch’s story does not add up and does little to put this mushrooming scandal to rest.
But with Democrats now in control of the House, they can kill off the investigation into the FBI and the Obama administration’s abuses of power.
