Skip to comments.New holes in Loretta Lynch’s story on the Hillary probe
Posted on 07/07/2017 5:53:00 AM PDT by simpson96
When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified last year about her decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information, she swore she never talked to anyone on the Clinton campaign. That categorical denial, though made in response to a series of questions about whether she spoke with Clintonworld about remaining attorney general if Hillary won the election, could come back to haunt her.
The Senate Judiciary Committee, which has launched a bipartisan investigation into Lynch for possible obstruction of justice, recently learned of the existence of a document indicating Lynch assured the political director of Clintons campaign she wouldnt let FBI agents go too far in probing the former secretary of state.
Lynchs lawyer says she is cooperating with committee investigators, who are seeking answers to several questions, as well as relevant documents. Among other things, they want to know if she or any of her Justice Department staff ever communicated with Amanda Renteria, who headed Clintons political operations during the campaign. Renteria, who has been identified in the document as the senior Clinton campaign aide with whom Lynch privately communicated, has also been asked to testify.
The committee also wants to know if Lynch or any of her aides were in contact with former DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz regarding the Clinton email investigation, according to a three-page list of questions that Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein recently sent to Lynch at her New York apartment.
Senate investigators have combed through a transcript of Lynchs testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in July 2016. In retrospect, several of her statements strain credulity. But one in particular stands out, and could present legal problems for Lynch.

Damning evidence of obstruction of Justice.
Lynch is a Trifecta....Black Democrat woman.....NOTHING will happen to her...NOTHING!!
The NY Post actually printed this??? Wow, must have been on page 69 below the fold, in the bottom inside left corner or something like that. Maybe the classifieds.
Race card deploying in 5.....4......3......2............
I thought the Chief of the Capitol Hill Police has possession of Cong. Debbie’s laptop.
Perhaps, Sen. Grasselly should be sending him a subpoena.
“....Black Democrat woman.....NOTHING will happen to her...NOTHING!!”
You are sadly correct. If the rule of law counted for anything there would be an entire wing of a federal prison filled with members of the last administration (including the Clintons and Obastard himself.)
I hear the Clintons are selling the plane. Those humongous Clinton speech fees are gone
and the massive State Dept graft the Clintons banked is eermarked as "hush money."
Why is anyone even wasting their time? Unless someone can demonstrate that the Public Masters should be held to the same Laws and standards designed and written for mere peasant subjects, then this is just another Dog and Pony show.
POST, not TIMES.
You are right. But it really doesn’t matter that much that she’s a BDW. The problem is, when have Republicans ever held ANYONE on the Left accountable for anything? They talk big but do nothing.
With Republicans in “power”, there is nothing for her to fear.
Yes Kemo Sabe - that is the plan.
“You are sadly correct. If the rule of law counted for anything there would be an entire wing of a federal prison filled with members of the last administration (including the Clintons and Obastard himself.)”
This isn’t about Lynch. They want Podesta.
When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified last year about her decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information ...The way I see it, she never was given the opportunity to make a decision on this. Comey usurped Lynch's role, and the investigation file never made the formal trip to Lynch's jurisdiction.
Yeah, but as an opinion piece, not news.
Trying to have it both ways.
