Loretta Lynch probably wishes that Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party had been a little more restrained in their rampant criminality and that James Comey had been less defiant of President Trump. They all probably really wish Hillary Clinton had been able to steal the election. If only she’d gone easier on Comey, maybe those moments of feigned, irrational integrity during his testimony could have been avoided. His revelations must have made her chubby jowls drop to the floor when she heard them.
The steely stare standoff over the Wasserman Shultz memo, order to “call it a matter not an investigation,” as well as the physical evidence of the Russia letter that stated she wouldn’t let Comey take the investigation too far weren’t good for a crooked politician wanting to remain out of the corruption spotlight and out of legal jeopardy.
The Senate Judiciary Committee announced on Friday that it has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s interference and manipulation of the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The committee sent Lynch a letter, asking her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton or her surrogates that the investigation wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.” The letter asked, in part:
“Did anyone from the FBI ever discuss or otherwise mention to you emails, memos, or reports such as those described in these media reports?”
“During your time in the Justice Department, did you ever have communications with Rep. Wasserman Schultz, her staff, her associates, or any other current or former DNC officials about the Clinton email investigation? If so, please describe the communications and provide all records relating to them.”
“To the best of your knowledge, did any of your Justice Department staff or your other associates communicate with Rep. Wasserman Schultz, her staff, her associates, or any other current or former DNC officials about the Clinton email investigation? If so, please describe the communications and provide all records relating to them.”
The senators also want to know about any communications with Amanda Renteria, a Clinton campaign staffer who reportedly had contact with Lynch, according to a disputed email document from Russian intelligence.
Fired FBI Director Comey has stated publicly that Lynch inserted herself and attempted to shape how he described the investigation in language that was more acceptable to and consistent with the language used by the Clinton campaign. That included being told to call the investigation into Clinton’s emails a “matter.”
Comey has also intimated there was other Lynch behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him question Lynch’s impartiality. The former FBI Director stated that was one of the reasons he revealed his findings about Clinton publicly last year.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was joined in signing the letter by the Ranking Member, Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) , as well as Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), the chairman and ranking member of the key investigative subcommittee.
Lynch is as slippery as a greased pig and not one for answering questions directly. She’ll likely start out with the polite refusals and plenty of taking of the Fifth Amendment, looking for deals to save her bacon.
“I’m with her” isn’t a very good place to be right about now. Lynch should beware of any Clinton or Obama offers of a free getaway ride to slip away to Qatar or somewhere else where “they’ll never find her.”
