Democrats have questioned whether President Trump tried to interfere in the Russian meddling probe in the 2016 campaign. Republicans have countered by stepping up inquiry of Lynch’s actions.
Well now Loretta Lynch seems to be in a pinch. The Senate Judiciary Committee has formally asked Lynch and others to respond to allegations of “political interference” in the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email probe.
The letters released Friday letters were bipartisan. Grassley, R-Iowa; ranking Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., wrote letters to Lynch and others seeking documentation and other details.
Senators including Graham had already expressed interest in Lynch testifying before the committee in the wake of Comey’s testimony. They refer to concerns stemming from Comey’s testimony about being uncomfortable with the Lynch and Bill Clinton tarmac meeting last summer.
The Senators seeking information that might determine the authenticity of media reports suggesting Lynch may have offered promises to the Clinton campaign about the probe.
When James Comey told Congress, “the attorney general directed me not to call it an investigation and call it a matter — which confused me,” Senators became very concerned.
Now, Lynch and others who received the committee’s letters have until July 6 to comply with the request.
If the government wants to spend our money, I think this is a great place to spend some. Drain the swamp!
