Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, ex-FBI Director James Comey, and President Bill Clinton "should testify" about their overlapping actions in the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, noting specifically the tarmac meeting between Lynch and Clinton, and Lynch's directive to Comey to re-label the e-mail case from an "investigation" to a "matter".
Remember, Lynch had earlier in June consented to an impromptu face-to-face meeting with former President Bill Clinton in a jet on the Phoenix airport tarmac, right as the Justice Department was gearing up to look into Hillary's questionable email habits, which may have exposed both USA secrets and undercover agents to Chinese and Russian hackers.
Comey was under the same oath when he dropped the bombshell that Lynch instructed the Justice Department to align its characterization of the investigation with Hillary's campaign rhetoric, eschewing the term "investigation" in favor of "matter".
The benign language employed by Lynch directly tracked the Clinton campaign's talking points in an effort to downplay the significance and negative ramifications of the criminal probe. Did the attorney general tell FBI Director James Comey to leave her office when confronted with evidence that showed a conflict of interest? Trump asked why Clinton is not the subject of a Russian Federation investigation while he is.
Varney asked Harrington how likely it is that Lynch testifies.
On June 8, Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. We must go fact- searching alone to discover that he, Comey himself, has deep long time Clinton relationships and his brother had worked for the Clinton Foundation.
Comey has repeatedly stated he thought Trump was ordering him to stop the Flynn investigation.
It is alleged that Lynch persuaded him to minimize the FBI's criminal investigation of Clinton. Trump then warned that the White House would have a lot of investigations [VIDEO] and scandals as big as the Watergate scandal, The New York Daily News reported. They were scheduling hearings and lining up witnesses into the Comey - Flynn thing basically before the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director had finished his opening remarks. Senator Grassley, a Republican, agrees with Feinstein that Lynch should be investigated by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The 56-year-old former FBI director has been at the center of the Russian hacking and Hillary Clinton email investigations. And Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) bluntly told Lynch that she was "sending a bad message to the world", and that her "lack of clarity" before the committee was "pretty stunning." Rep.
"Hillary Clinton is going to win this primary. I say enough is enough".
