Senate Investigating If Loretta Lynch Interfered With Clinton Email Investigation

Lynch conduct makes Feinstein 'queasy'

Lynch conduct makes Feinstein 'queasy'

The letters, sent Thursday, are signed by Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley, ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein, as well as Sens.

The senators cited stories in The New York Times and The Washington Post about a supposed Russian intelligence document saying Lynch had given assurances to the Clinton campaign about the FBI's investigation.

At that hearing, Comey told the senators that his concern over possible ethical impropriety involved in the Clinton investigation gave him pause.

During Comey's Senate testimony, the former FBI director stated he was concerned about Lynch telling the FBI to describe the Clinton investigation as a "matter", which was the same term used by Clinton's presidential campaign team.

The Washington Post followed up in May, calling the document "dubious" but identifying it as a Russian report on an alleged email between Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Leonard Bernardo, the Eurasia Director of leftist billionaire George Soros's infamous Open Societies Foundations.

"According to anonymous government officials cited [in a 2016 FBI report, ] the discovery of the document "complicated" how FBI and the Justice Department would interact in the investigation because 'if Ms".

There is also evidence that Russian Federation launched cyberattacks on our voting systems in 39 states . Jeh Johnson, who was USA secretary of Homeland Security during the November election, testified.

Although both Lynch and Bill Clinton have denied they discussed the email probe during their private meeting and instead made small talk about golf and Clinton's grandchildren, both received intense blowback over creating the appearance of impropriety during an ongoing investigation.

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

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

The FBI reportedly met Lynch for a conversation about the document, though officials assured her it "didn't have investigative value", the Post reported.

Lynch last June met with the 42 president aboard a private plane on the tarmac of the Phoenix Airport. However, the Post reported the documents were viewed within the Federal Bureau of Investigation as unreliable and possibly fake, and Renteria has said Russians used her to spread the false information. Neither Lynch nor the Federal Bureau of Investigation commented to Circa on the allegations.

The inquiry has resulted in letters to Lynch, attorney general under former President Barack Obama, and three others asking for information about their communications related to the email investigation.
