James Comey testified to the Senate in a closed-door hearing and made a shocking revelation in the process.
As it turns out, the alleged document that the FBI obtained showing Lynch’s intent to obstruct the Hillary email investigation does exist, and Comey used it to confront the former Attorney General. Circa News is reporting that “sources who were directly briefed on the matter” said he confronted Lynch about her planned interference, and all she could muster up was a blank stare before demanding he get the hell out of her office.
Is it time for a special prosecutor yet?
Comey told lawmakers in the close door session that he raised his concern with the attorney general that she had created a conflict of interest by meeting with Clinton’s husband, the former President Bill Clinton, on an airport tarmac while the investigation was ongoing.
During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.
Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office,” said one source who was briefed.
Don’t forget, Comey also testified in an open session that Lynch had told him to refer to the investigation as a “matter” to more closely reflect the Clinton campaign’s talking points. When he made the stunning revelation, he told the Senate that he felt “queasy” over her demands, but apparently went along with them anyway.
Why he’s speaking out now is uncertain; however, he’s revealed much more wrongdoing from the previous administration than he has on President Trump. Yet here we are, almost a year later, and both Hillary and Lynch remain unscathed.
How, exactly, does that work again?
