Top Democrat calls for investigation of Loretta Lynch’s Clinton probe
The following article
appeared in the N.Y. Post on June 11
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.) said
she’s concerned 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 said 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,
ultimately had to distance herself from the FBI probe after meeting with former
President Bill Clinton on a tarmac in Phoenix during the height of the election
campaign and email investigation.
Asked whether Lynch provided 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 allegedly
asked Comey to back off his criminal investigation into former Trump aide
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 said. “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 expected to
appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, but Feinstien believes
the Judiciary committee is the proper oversight venue.
Trump was not under investigation
regarding the Russia probe, Comey said.
But now Special Counsel Robert Mueller
will review Comey’s memos and make a determination whether the president sought
to obstruct justice by pressuring him to back off the Flynn investigation.
