Senators Are Looking At Loretta Lynch's Role In The Clinton Email Investigation

Judiciary committee asks Lynch to disclose Clinton email conversations Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch
Warren Dawson | 25 June, 2017, 02:17

Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. - requested information about the alleged interference by President Barack Obama's attorney general during the FBI's investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

The Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter Friday to Lynch asking about her involvement in the FBI investigation, including whether she had assured Clinton associates that the probe wouldn't "push too deeply into the matter".

At that hearing, Comey told the senators that his concern over possible ethical impropriety involved in the Clinton investigation gave him pause. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton's emails, and he also hinted at other behavior "which I can not talk about yet" that made him anxious about Ms.

The Washington Post claimed that by August of 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was confident the Russian report was a forgery.

Trump and his allies insinuated that Clinton used the meeting to press Lynch to end the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

Preliminary information indicated the deputies didn't see the teen when he walked around the building, according to Bergner. Bergner calls the shooting an extremely unfortunate incident. "At that point, two deputies engaged the dog in gunfire".

The issue of a possible document implicating Lynch is shrouded in conflicting news media reports and testimony implying that the matter has been presented in closed session before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The FBI never interviewed Wasserman Schultz, Bernardo or Renteria about the alleged email.

While it awaits Lynch's response, the committee is pressing forward with its investigation of Trump's May 9 firing of Comey.

Lynch last June met with the 42 president aboard a private plane on the tarmac of the Phoenix Airport. The letters ask about an email reportedly recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation which some news reports have suggested might have been created by Russian Federation.

Comey made a decision to announce the investigation out of his concerns over Lynch's impartiality, including her spontaneous June meeting with former President Bill Clinton aboard a grounded plane, and based on the Russian intelligence document he suspected was fake.

You can find their letter to former Attorney General Lynch here. This all stems from a May 24 story in the Washington Post that reported that Lynch told Renteria that she would not let the FBI investigation of Clinton go very far. By July 6, the Judiciary Committee requests copies of the documents and emails in question, and well as answers as to whether they existed in the first place and if the Federal Bureau of Investigation had previously tried to obtain them for the recipients.
