Unbelievable! Lynch told Comey not to refer to the Clinton email scandal as an “investigation.”
Former FBI Director James Comey admitted during his testimony to Congress today that ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to refer to the Clinton email scandal as a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”
Lynch essentially pressured the FBI Director to back off and downplay the agency’s probe into the Clinton email server. This is tantamount to collusion and obstruction of justice.
Comey revealed that he felt uncomfortable with the meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton on the tarmac of an airport in Arizona last year, which tainted the independence of the investigation.
“A number of things had gone on which I can’t talk about yet, that made me worry that the department leadership could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system,” Comey said.
Judicial Watch sued the Justice Department to uncover the truth about that meeting, but the department never released any intel.
Lynch claimed her conversation with Clinton was “a great deal about grandchildren.”
“It was primarily social about our travels and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix,” she said.
The Justice Department obviously protected Hillary from prosecution. The FBI director then chose not to recommend an indictment despite admitting the former secretary of state sent and received classified information on her illegal private server, and over 30,000 subpoenaed emails mysteriously disappeared.
