Dem: We need to investigate whether Lynch gave cover to Clinton campaign

12 Juin 2017

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey said he made a decision to speak out on the probe into Mrs Hillary Clinton's e-mail previous year as he thought his boss, then attorney general Loretta Lynch, had been politically compromised.

"I want to hear from Loretta Lynch", Graham said.

Comey testified last Thursday that he felt "queasy" after Lynch asked him to characterize his probe into Clinton's emails as a "matter", rather than an investigation.

If you want to know what taking a courageous stance against a president of the United States looks like, look no further than former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates.

As perhaps should have been expected, the most important takeaway from Comey's testimony may be what he didn't say.

Graham, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he wanted Comey to testify on the matter. Graham said in response on Sunday.

He said his party would seek to vote down May's Queen's Speech, or programme for government, when she presented it to parliament. Meanwhile, DUP leader Arlene Foster has said that talks were ongoing, indicating it may not be such a smooth process after all.

The Daily Mail reported that Comey responded to a question during the hearing with an answer that may have foreshadowed the news. John McCain did just fine, however, calling attention to Comey's floating raft of double-standards and duplicity when he issued a clarification later in the day.

On one subject, Comey confirmed that the president is being truthful: Comey did tell him three times that he was not personally under investigation.

She even added that she wants to determine whether U.S. President Donald Trump asked Coats or Rogers to take any action on the Russian Federation investigation.

Lynch said the meeting was impromptu and they didn't discuss Clinton's private email server, but the appearance of impropriety forced her to back off and for Comey to become the public face of the probe. Was it before or after her meeting with Bill Clinton? Days later, Comey called Hillary Clinton's actions "extremely careless" but declined to recommend charges.

"As I have mentioned to you directly, I am supportive of issuing subpoenas in those cases where we do not receive cooperation", she wrote.

Judiciary Committee spokesman Taylor Foy said Grassley "appreciates Ranking Member Feinstein's support and experience" in the committee's oversight activities. "I believe we owe the American people transparency". "And let her state something privately and see if it makes much of a difference". "But I also know that there's another part of this, and that part should not be given short shrift, and it has to do with the Department of Justice".
