Loretta Lynch says James Comey is lying, that he never expressed any qualms about using the language of the Clinton campaign, calling the sham criminal investigation a matter…
Lester Holt begins his interview with Loretta Lynch with a typical leftwing media lie as part of the introduction, claiming that James Comey had been fired by President Trump because “he improperly went around AG Loretta Lynch when he publicly announced no charges would be filed against Hillary Clinton.”
According to the New York Times the reason was stated in a letter from President Trump to Comey which read, “While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau.” There is no mention of him going around Loretta Lynch.
Donning the kid gloves the leftists use when they’re protecting their corrupt political allies, Holt asks Lynch, “He [Comey] noted that you had asked him to call the Clinton probe a matter, not an investigation. But he said it made him feel, I’m paraphrasing, it made him feel strange, he noted it. What did you mean when you said let’s call it a matter and not an investigation?”
Lying Loretta goes immediately into her familiar deflection and cover up mode, saying, “Well, you know I heard about that testimony, I didn’t watch it at the time, but it was brought to my attention later and people were raising it with me, and my first response was, “Where, what is the issue here?” Attempting to portray a criminal political candidate that you support as something else in preparation for letting her off the hook, you pretentious political pig.
Why does Holt need to paraphrase? The actual testimony Comey gave in one of his hearings, indicates he stated he was uncomfortable because it made it look like the FBI was using the same language as the Clinton campaign, “which was inaccurate. We had a criminal investigation open.” He said, “That gave me a queasy feeling.” It took less than a minute to find that quote, but was apparently either too much work or not something “professional journalist” Holt wanted to address.
Of course this was a question she anticipated and one she has undoubtedly prepared for, fully expecting to be under increased scrutiny and possibly a criminal investigation following the release of Comey’s book.
She begins her dilution by filibuster, saying, “I remember specifically talking with him, as we talked about sensitive things on a number of occasions. You know we would often have to discuss sensitive matters, sensitive issues, terrorism and the like, um, you know, law enforcement policy and the like.”
All they ever talked about was how to protect America, she’d have us believe, and Bill Clinton’s grand kids and golf game. Lynch says that the Clinton cover up sham “was a very sensitive investigation, as everyone knew.” She says the issue they were discussing at that time was “whether or not we were ready as a department to confirm an investigation going on, when we typically do not confirm or deny investigations into anything, with rare exceptions.”
They’re above the law and it’s much easier to act with impunity if nobody knows what they’re up to. What they were discussing was how long they could pretend that Clinton wasn’t being investigated without it becoming too obvious that they were covering for her.
Holt lets her get away with that statement, following it up by asking, “So Comey says you want to call it the Clinton matter, he wants to call it the Clinton investigation. To the extent, though, that he noted it, that it bothered him, did he go to you and question your credibility with regard to the Clinton case?”
She downplays the significance of their exchange, saying, “Well, you know, I can tell you that, you know, it was a meeting like any other that we had had. We talked about the issues and we had a full and open discussion about it and concerns were not raised.”
So Comey’s lying under oath, says Lynch. Apparently she’s quite concerned about what his book reveals, so much so that she’s presenting her case, publicly, where she’s been absolutely silent about her criminal administration since leaving office to this point.
It will be interesting to read the talking points that DOJ produced in the immediate aftermath of the tarmac grandkids and golf conversation once Judicial Watch gets their hands on them. Both of these crooks, Comey and Lynch, know they should keep their mouths shut. The fact that they aren’t indicates there are a lot of damaging secrets they’re all trying to get out in front of.
