According to the testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey, former US Attorney General Loretta Lynch tried to silence the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private server in sending classified information. The actions of Lynch took place before the elections and if verified, constitute the serious charge of obstruction of justice. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has confirmed that Lynch is the topic of investigations by the Justice Department in addition to the one being held by the Senate.
Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of House oversight committee, said Saturday that the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, in addition to a Senate panel, is looking into whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch tried to squash the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email investigation.
“This is really a pivotal moment,” said Chaffetz on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” amid three probes into whether President Trump’s presidential team colluded with Russia during the 2016 White House race that have slowed Washington Republicans’ legislative agenda.
Chaffetz said agency Inspector General Michael Horowitz “has been diving into this” and is expected to release a comprehensive report on Lynch and her oversight on the now-closed FBI email investigations in “the first part of next year.” …
Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder should also be investigated for their obstruction of justice of the investigations on the IRS scandal, ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious, the attack at US Embassy compound in Benghazi and in the investigation of Obama’s birth certificate. President Donald Trump should push the Justice Department to investigate all three of them and hopefully bring charges against them that will land them in prison for the rest of their lives.
