Loretta Lynch, Attorney General, rebuffed and resisted questions asked by the House committee about the probe into Hillary Clinton’s email server.
She immovably refused to talk about the facts and legal standards involved, despite FBI Director James Comey already recently doing so.
With distinct questions from Republicans, Lynch preferred it to be improper for her to make comments publicly about evidence gathered during the almost year-long investigation.
“While I understand that this investigation has generated significant public interest, as Attorney General, it would be inappropriate for me to comment further on the underlying facts of the investigation or the legal basis for the team’s recommendation,” Lynch said at the outset of the House Judiciary Committee hearing.
Attorney General Lynch has kept her lips sealed tight… Which makes you wonder, what is she is masking?
According to libertywriters:
While the rest of the world was focusing on the Hillary corruption bombshells and the Bob Mueller grand jury bombshell, something big was happening on Capitol Hill.
Mainly, that former President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta was in a big hush hush meeting.
It was about the Russian election probe but GOP members of the committee – after all the new revelations from the FBI informant rocked Washington – wanted some other answers.
And they went after Loretta in a closed door meeting.
The new information has been devastating to the Clinton’s and Obama’s and when you take what came out with this previous statement by James Comey you have the makings of a massive scandal.
“At one point, the attorney general [Lynch] had directed me not to call it an investigation but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me,” Comey said under oath, “that was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the department if we’re to close this case credibly.”
So the GOP was ready for Lynch and went after her and according to reports by Fox News she went stone cold silent and clammed up.
According to the Washington Times, Lynch refused to answer these three critical questions:
Did she ever instructed Mr. Comey to characterize the DOJ’s Clinton email investigation a “matter?”
Did she liaise with the White House to hold the tarmac meeting with Mr. Clinton?
And would she address any issues related to Mr. Comey’s June testimony.
She said nothing. Which tells you all you need to know about the whole sordid affair.
