WASHINGTON – The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee called Sunday for a congressional investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) stated she’s alarmed by former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday that Lynch asked him to downplay his “investigation” into the Democratic presidential nominee as merely a “matter.”
Comey stated the political request called into the question the credibility of Lynch’s Department of Justice and made him “queasy.”
“I would have a queasy feeling too,” Feinstein admitted Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think we need to know more about that. And there’s only one way to know about it and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”
Lynch, a President Obama nominee, at the end of the day had to distance herself from the FBI probe after meeting with ex- President Bill Clinton on a tarmac in Phoenix during the height of the election campaign and email investigation.
Lynch said the meeting was impromptu and they didn’t discuss Clinton’s private email server, but the appearance of impropriety pressured her to back off and for Comey to become the public face of the probe.
Asked whether Lynch supplied improper political cover for Clinton, Feinstein said: “I can’t answer that,” but a “separate investigation” is worthwhile to find out.
Feinstein also sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Russian meddling into the 2016 election. She, however, believes it’s the Judiciary Committee that needs to investigate whether President Trump committed obstruction of justice when he presumably asked Comey to back off his criminal investigation into former Trump aide Michael Flynn.
Feinstein has formally asked the GOP chairman of the committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), to open an additional review of the president.
“Right now, this is [about] the total integrity of the president of the United States,” Feinstein stated. “This is a very big deal. It should be all hands on deck. And everybody should welcome a second committee getting involved, particularly on the technical legal aspects of obstruction of justice.”
Feinstein also wants Attorney General Jeff Sessions to testify before the Judiciary Committee. He’s anticipated to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee today, but Feinstien thinks the Judiciary committee is the proper oversight venue.
Trump was not under investigation regarding the Russia probe, Comey stated.
But now Special Counsel Robert Mueller will review Comey’s memos and make a determination whether the president looked to obstruct justice by pressuring him to back off the Flynn investigation.
Trump has over and over repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
The Establishment continue to push forward in their attempt to shut down the alternative press that is rapidly growing and pushing out the faltering mainstream media. As the EU demands social media sites censor fake news and Reddit, Facebook and other sites begin blocking Fusion Laced Illusions and other alternative media it is now alarmingly evident that their truly is a war on free speech.
