Finally! Senate Judiciary Committee Investigates Loretta Lynch

Written by Joe Scudder

The Senate Judiciary Committee is finally looking into someone who used her power to influence the election.

I have no idea why James Comey gave negative testimony regarding Loretta Lynch when he spoke before the Senate Judiciary Committee. My guess would be that he views Lynch as a rival and figured that criticizing her would make him seem more credible when he criticized Donald Trump. But no matter what his motive, Conservatives should be glad to see the Senate target some real corruption instead of the Russia hoax.

The Washington Times reports, “Senate announces probe of Loretta Lynch behavior in 2016 election.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.

In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”

Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. 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 cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.
