BREAKING: Comey Says Loretta Lynch Tried to Get Him to Downplay the Clinton Investigation

In his sworn testimony before the Senate, James Comey just testified that Barack Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, tried to get James Comey to downplay the investigation into Hillary Clinton.

She tried to get him to refer to it as a “matter” and not as an “investigation.”

Look for much of the media to ignore this point today as they focus on Trump and claim that is old news. But it puts the Democrats in an amazingly hypocritical position to claim President Trump was trying to obstruct justice when Loretta Lynch did that.

This comes on the heels of Comey saying he largely scrapped the Clinton investigation because of Lynch’s private meeting with Bill Clinton. That sounds way more like obstruction of justice than Trump just asking Comey if he might wind down the Flynn investigation when Comey did not do so afterwards.
