Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

FBI Found New Email, Suggests Lynch Made Sure Clinton Email Probe ‘Didn’t Go Too Far’

FBI Director James Comey says he was boxed in, with regards to the Clinton email scandal, by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

“Her meeting with President Clinton on that airplane was the capper for me, and I then said, you know what, the [Justice Department] cannot, by itself, credibly end this,” Comey testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday.

A new email obtained by the FBI lends credibility to Comey’s statement and suggests Lynch’s tarmac meetings with the former president wasn’t the only way she interfered with the Clinton email investigation.

The email, written by a Democratic operative, indicated Lynch would do “whatever it took to prevent criminal charges to be brought against Hillary Clinton in the email probe,” said Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge.

Herridge said Sen. Chuck Grassley’s, R-Iowa, acknowledgment of the email was “one of the most significant headlines” to come out of Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

“The New York Times recently reported that the FBI had found a troubling email among the ones the Russians hacked from Democrat operatives,” Grassley said Wednesday.

“The email reportedly provided assurances that Attorney General Lynch would protect Secretary Clinton by making sure the FBI investigation ‘didn’t go too far.’ How and when did you first learn of this document? Also, who sent it and who received it?” Grassley asked Comey.

Comey said he was unable to answer Grassley’s question “because it would call for a classified response.”

Herridge reported there is an ongoing Justice Department Inspector General’s investigation into both Lynch’s and Comey’s actions during the Clinton email investigation.

If the contents of the email are true – if Lynch did use her position to protect Hillary Clinton – it may explain why Comey felt compelled to play the role of a prosecutor in his July 5 press conference.

Comey said Wednesday that Lynch’s actions forced him to do something he never thought he would have to do.

“Step away from [the Justice Department], tell the American people, ‘Look, here’s what the FBI did, here’s what we found, here’s what we think.’ That offered us the best chance of the American people believing in the system,” Comey said.

“That was a hard call for me to make — to call the attorney general that morning to do a press conference and I’m not going to tell you what I’m going to say,” Comey said. “And I said to [Lynch], ‘I hope some day that you’ll understand why I think I have to do this.’”
