Maybe the biggest surprise of Jim Comey’s testimony was what he revealed about Loretta Lynch. Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that Obama’s Attorney General pressured him to mislead Americans.
Not long after Lynch met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix, the former Attorney General had some instruction for Comey. She told him to refer to the investigatin into Hillary Clinton as a ‘matter‘ so it wouldn’t sound like a criminal case.
“At one point, the attorney general had directed me not to call it an ‘investigation,’ but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” Comey told the committee.
We should all be concerned over that!
Comey, finding himself between a rock and a hard place, decided to try to protect the credibility of the investigation. He had to please both the FBI and Lynch’s Justice Department.
It was in his statement issued in July last year that Comey announced “that no charges are appropriate in this case” but also outlined how Clinton had broken the law.
Here’s what he told the committee last week:
Did Lynch interfere with the investigation? Probably.
Did she break the law in doing so? That’s up to Special Counsel Robert Mueller to decide!
Conservative Tribune reports:
In a surprise twist during former FBI Director James Comey’s highly anticipated testimony Thursday to the Senate Intelligence Committee, he wound up incriminating former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for what could potentially be subversion of justice.
He specifically admitted that during the bureau’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s shady email habits, the then-attorney general pressured him to mislead the public, according to Breitbart.
