Russian Probe Uncovers Questions About Loretta Lynch

Jun 16, 2017

The Russian probe has led to questions about possible wrongdoing by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails. Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton in her plane for about thirty minutes. Bill Clinton’s wife was under investigation for her mishandling of emails. During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Comey said that Loretta Lynch directed him to refer to the Clinton email investigation as a “matter” instead of an investigation or a criminal probe. Comey conceded in his testimony that the appointment of a special counsel would have been appropriate because of Comey’s concerns about Lynch. Judicial Watch said in a statement, “Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with President Clinton creates the appearance of a violation of law, ethical standards and good judgment.” Some Republicans have been calling for Loretta Lynch to be called to testify about her actions.
