Former FBI Director James Comey revealed that Loretta Lynch pressured him to use Clinton Campaign spin and refer to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal handling of classified emails as a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”
Lynch told Comey to call the investigation a “matter” rather than an “investigation,” Comey said. When he asked Lynch why, he said, she dodged the question, saying: “Just call it a matter.”
The Senate Judiciary Committee is opening up a probe into President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey – and whether any ‘improper interference’ with the FBI occurred.
The Committee also said that it would be investigating whether Obama attorney general Loretta Lynch improperly influenced the Clinton email scandal investigation.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley of Iowa revealed the probe in a letter to his Democratic counterpart, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, Daily Mail reported.
Grassley wants the investigation to look at Obama attorney general Loretta Lynch and whether she influenced the Clinton email scandal investigation.
“There should be no improper interference with FBI investigations to favor any elected official or candidate of either party,” Grassley wrote.
“The Committee has an obligation to pursue all evidence of such misconduct.”
He wrote: ‘The Judiciary Committee has an obligation to fully investigate any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations.’
‘It is my view that fully investigating the facts, circumstances, and rationale for Mr. Comey’s removal will provide us the opportunity to do that on a cooperative, bipartisan basis,’ Grassley added, optimistically.
This came after President Trump said that what Lynch did during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server was “totally illegal.”
A.G. Lynch made law enforcement decisions for political purposes…gave Hillary Clinton a free pass and protection. Totally illegal!

As a supporter of the President, I fully support this investigation. Finally an investigation worthy of my tax dollars.
It time to put all of Obama’s crooked people away, like under the prison!
Let’s see if Obama will be able to protect her now. He will stay as far away as possible.
