Senate Judiciary Committee Investigating Loretta Lynch

Senate Judiciary Committee Investigating Loretta Lynch

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have asked former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for information regarding the FBI's Hillary Clinton email investigation and whether there was any political interference involved in the matter. "Lindsey Graham and Sheldon Whitehouse, the chairman and ranking member of the key investigative subcommittee".

The committee asked Lynch about any conversations she had with Clinton staffer Amanda Renteria or former DNC Chairwoman Rep.

Comey was reportedly concerned that the communication would raise doubts about the investigation's independence and began discussing plans to announce the end of the Clinton email investigation rather than simply referring it to the Department for a prosecutorial decision.

The senators question Open Society Foundations' Leonard Benardo and its General Counsel Gail Scovell, as well as Renteria and Lynch, about a May 24 story from the Washington Post that reported Lynch assured Renteria that she would not let the FBI investigation into Clinton go too far.

By using fired FBI Director James Comey to attack the new Republican administration, Democrats have opened up a legal can of worms for the Obama administration.

If Lynch didn't know already, social media told her that she has some splaining to do. Circa's John Solomon and Sara A. Carter reported: "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. The bipartisan inquiry comes as the Judiciary Committee is examining the circumstances surrounding the removal of James Comey as FBI Director", the statement read.

What communications, if any, did you have with then-Attorney General Lynch, her staff, her associ.ates, or any other Department of Justice officials in 2015 and 2016 related to the Clinton email investigation? Lynch allegedly issued the "matter" directive to Comey despite the Justice Department knowing the FBI probe was not only an official investigation but a criminal probe.

He also testified about the secret meeting between Bill Clinton and Lynch on a tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
