The fact is, Attorney General Loretta Lynch was following orders from the White House. Ever since the Federal Bureau of Investigation gave Hillary a free pass.
The New York Post reports that findings from the Lynch investigation could lead to the appointment of a separate special counsel for a new criminal investigation focusing on the Obama team. I bet the Democrats never expected THAT when they made up their phony Russian-collusion claims to trip up President Trump.
By using fired FBI Director James Comey to attack the new Republican administration, Democrats have opened up a legal can of worms for the Obama administration.
Under sworn questioning, Comey has veered off the topic of President Trump and Russia and revealed several damning incidents in which his predecessor’s administration politically interfered in the Hillary Clinton email investigation. And now the Senate will investigate Team Obama for obstruction of justice.
Specifically, the Senate Judiciary Committee announced last week it will seek hearings to “examine then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s involvement in the Clinton email server investigation.”
The findings of the powerful panel, which has oversight of the Justice Department and FBI, could lead to a separate criminal investigation and the naming of another special counsel — exactly what Trump needs to distract attention from his growing legal woes.
Lynch’s actions around the Hillary probe are extremely suspicious, here are three major things that we know:
During his Senate hearing, former FBI director James Comey said Lynch ordered him to called the criminal investigation into Hillary a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”
Then-Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz claimed in an email intercepted by the FBI that Lynch told the Clinton campaign she wouldn’t let the email probe “go too far.”
Lynch refused to recuse herself from the email investigation after Comey raised concerns about a possible conflict of interest after her meeting on a tarmac with Bill Clinton.
