Loretta Lynch sat down for an interview with Lester Holt and he asked some very good questions.
“He said it made him feel — I’m paraphrasing — that it made him feel strange,” “What did you mean when you called it a matter instead of an investigation?”
“I heard about that testimony,” And my first response was…what is the issue here? I remember specifically talking with him, as we talked about sensitive things on a number of occasions.”
“And this was a very sensitive investigation, everyone knew. And the issue when he and I sat down at that time, which I think was early in the fall of 2015, was whether or not we were ready as a department to confirm an investigation going on. When we typically do not confirm or deny investigations into anything, with rare exceptions.”
“To the extent though that he noted it, that it bothered him,” “did he go to you and question your credibility with regard to the Clinton case?”
“We had a full and open discussion about it,” “And concerns were not raised.”
This is further evidence of a circular firing squad developing. Since Comey testified about this, under oath, he will be accused of lying. Yet if you read this transcript carefully, it is a non-denial denial. Although most of the current members of the MSM are liberals too blinded by bias to notice, the true professionals will not miss the significance of this.
Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia Investigation because he is a man of honor and he didn’t want even the appearance of a conflict of interest. Loretta Lynch and Andrew McCabe had serious conflicts of interests regarding the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal. Loretta Lynch never recused herself at all; she just “agreed” to let the FBI make the decision whether or not to recommend prosecution. If Comey had recommended Lynch prosecute Hillary Clinton she would have gone ballistic. Andrew McCabe didn’t recuse himself until a week before the election when the stench of his bias was too overpowering to ignore.
Lynch is admitting that she talked to Comey about this on a number of occasions. That alone demonstrates a conflict of interest. It is exactly why Loretta Lynch should have recused herself from this investigation from day one.
We may be seeing a significant sea change here. Some very serious people in the MSM are finally realizing they are sitting on a major political scandal. While they have been chasing their tails looking for the mythical unicorn of collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign, they have been ignoring absolute bombshells regarding all things Clinton.
Yesterday Attorney General Jeff Session appointed the U.S. attorney in Chicago to oversee the Justice Department’s response to congressional requests for documents.
Even the Washington Post noticed. This means one of two things will happen. Either those documents will be delivered to congress, sooner rather than later, or those documents are being used in a criminal investigation. Either outcome is likely to be very embarrassing for the MSM who has ignored this for so long.
All we know at this point is that Holt, at least, is on the case and odds are other people are also going to start asking some very serious questions.
