James Comey testified that Loretta Lynch instructed him to refer to the Hillary Clinton case as a ‘matter‘ not an ‘investigation’. She probably wanted to make it seem like it wasn’t a criminal investigation in order to take some of the heat off of Clinton.
The former FBI Director said that the request gave him a ‘queasy’ feeling. Senator Dianne Feinstein admitted that it would have given her a queasy feeling too!
“I think we need to know more about that,” Feinstein said. “And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the judiciary committee take a look at that.”
Feinstein was clear that an investigation into Lynch’s conduct with the Clinton campaign should be separate from the current investigation into ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.
“I don’t think we should mix the two,” Feinstein said. “I don’t know whether it’s obstruction of justice. I don’t intend to draw any conclusions until investigations are finished.”
