Loretta Lynch not too happy about James Comey throwing her under the bus
James Comey's bid to
throw former attorney general Loretta Lynch under the bus isn't going over
well, at least with Lynch. According to a report in Axios, which
includes a long, blathering statement from Lynch:
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch released a statement on Sunday,
saying that she and former FBI Director James Comey have known each other
almost 30 years, and "he had ample opportunities to raise" any
concerns he had over the Department of Justice's investigation of Hillary
Clinton's emails, but "[h]e never did."
The backdrop: Per
CNN, Comey says in his forthcoming book that he found evidence that
"would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious
doubt on the attorney general's independence in connection with the Clinton
Her objection stems
from this report that ran
on Fox News a couple days ago:
James Comey's cryptic reference in his new book to "a development
still unknown to the American public" involving then-Attorney General
Loretta Lynch and the Hillary Clinton email probe is sparking furious
speculation inside and outside the Beltway.
According to ABC News, Comey writes in "A Higher Loyalty: Truth,
Lies and Leadership," that he became the public face of the investigation
partly because of the mysterious development which he felt could cast
"serious doubt" on Lynch's independence.
"Had it become public, the unverified material would undoubtedly
have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney
general's independence in connection with the Clinton investigation,"
Comey writes, according to ABC. He calls the material a
"development still unknown to the American public to this day."
My reaction at the
time to this was: "Oh, what a carnival
barker. Anything to sell a book."
It is a funny fight
to pick, given that both Comey and Lynch are leftists as well as swamp things,
and both have vested interests in protecting Hillary Clinton. Now
we've got Lynch mad at Comey and Comey throwing another one under the bus to
make himself appear virtuous in comparison (and richer as he sells books).
Comey and Mueller
Sundance, over at The
Last Refuge, has some interesting theories about why
this is happening. Could it have been related to the Eric Garner
case, where a man who sold "loosey" single cigarettes on the street
in Staten Island found himself in a chokehold by the NYPD and died from it, yet
the officers involved got no charges? That seemed like a bad case
where the cops got off, given that they were using illegal arrest techniques
over a very stupid crime that at best deserved a ticket and a fine, or better
still, no action at all, given the punitive leftist taxes on cigarettes that
created the "loosey" market in the first place. The cops
protect their own, and so the question is raised, given that Lynch was a
district attorney in New York in 2014, when it happened: was there some kind of
leverage when the Huma Abedin emails of Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified
information turned up on child-molester Anthony Weiner's computer and the cops
wanted an arrest?
The Weiner emails
would have been bad for Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects, while the cop
union might have wanted its own members to walk in this case, so one wonders if
there was a tradeoff and Lynch was involved. It's tangled stuff and
highly speculative, so see what Sundance has here.
Sundance also points
to a prediction made by Blackwater founder Eric Prince:
Prince claimed he had insider knowledge of the investigation that could
help explain why FBI Director James Comey had to announce he was reopening the
investigation into Clinton's email server last week.
"Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started
investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they
searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000
emails. They found way more stuff than just more information
pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing," Prince
Comey and Lynch
"They found State Department emails. They found a lot
of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering,
including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted
pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20
times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times," he said.
"The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of
criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other
Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and
they said, 'We're going to go public with this if you don't reopen the investigation
and you don't do the right thing with timely indictments,'" Prince
"I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of
mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York – the NYPD wanted to do a press
conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making
in this investigation, and they've gotten huge pushback, to the point of
coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been
unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost
two years ago.
So maybe this is what
Comey had in mind as he and Lynch now mix it up. It sounds like
a rat-king dynamic:
rats with their tails tied together. We should do all we can to egg
this feud on so that the truth about what was going on among the Obama leftists
can finally become known.
