Attorney general: Silent on Clinton email case with Obama

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch addresses the White House Summit on the United State of Women in Washington on June 14.

WASHINGTON >> Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she doesn’t believe the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server has been compromised by President Barack Obama’s endorsement of Clinton in the 2016 White House race.

That endorsement raised eyebrows among conservatives who say it puts pressure on the law enforcement agencies, run by Obama’s political appointees, to pull punches when trying to decide whether Clinton should be charged.

The FBI is investigating whether Clinton broke any laws relying on a private email server during her four years as Obama’s secretary of State instead of using a system owned and protected by the federal government.

“The investigation into the State Department email matter is going to be handled like any other matter,” Lynch told “Fox News Sunday” today.

“We’ve got career agents and lawyers looking at that. They will follow the facts and follow the evidence wherever it leads and come to a conclusion,” she said.

Lynch said she has never spoken about the investigation with Obama or “really with anyone” at the White House.

“That’s not the kind of relationship that I have with people there and it would be inappropriate to do so,” she said.

    • If they were going to charge her, they would have done it already. Obama squashed it. There is no doubt Hillary broke the law, she in so much admits it but claims the emails weren’t “classified” at the time therefore laws were not intentionally broken. Even if you believe her – what she doesn’t realize is that ignorance is not the same as innocence.

  • They’ll stay silent until after the election. If the witch wins, they’ll drop the charges, if the witch loses the election, they’ll burn her alive. Personally, I would have preferred Bill Clinton’s daughter Chelsie run for president this year than that witch Hilary.

  • I bet Hillary will Skate and NOT face any Indictment or prosecution. Who are we to expect the DOJ will do it’s Job? And to the winner,the Grand Prize will be?? Ding, Ding Ding! wait for it……The Brand New ,Unfinished, “Money Pit” Honolulu Rail! Ha!ha!ha!

    Indeed folks, as The Donald has said, many people in that/her department had done lesser offenses and had their lives destroyed!! Heck! even Barry was Communicating to Hillary’s private server.as Fox’s Judge Jeanine Pirro has stated.If so? Could Barry also be implicated ?
    ——Hence The No Indictment or criminal Prosecution theory.

    Better hope she wins, because when President Donald Trump becomes the confirmed POTUS, he will “come a knocking” and finally….lock her up for good! Just Do your ABC’s folks.IMUA

  • ““That’s not the kind of relationship that I have with people there and it would be inappropriate to do so,” she said.” Thank you Attorney General Lynch. Now if only you could get the rest of D.C. to quiet down and get back to work, we the people will be ever so grateful.

  • Speaking outside of national security, there is a real problem with the way our government agencies are run. Many a countless stories I have heard where government workers are subjected to unethical treatment. In one case, a decorated government worker was and is currently subjected to harassment by his supervisor in the form of veiled attacks. And this supervisor knows that she can get away with it as there seem to be no real repercussion for doing this. You see, this person was transferred from another department where she had become a problem to those under her supervision. The higher ups even went out of their way and warned her new department of her past. This man had never done anything to this woman but his coworker who had vehemently renounced the new incoming supervisor and even seeking to move to another department all of a sudden became this supervisor’s right hand woman. It is really sad but this is not uncommon. We have ethics training classes for government workers but their superior do not operate on the same standards.

  • Gennifer and Monica. Former lounge singer Gennifer Flowers surfaced in early 1992 with claims — corroborated by tapes of phone calls — that she had had a long affair with then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, who had arranged a state job for her. Bill Clinton told the media, falsely, that the woman’s “story is untrue.”

    Although well aware of her husband’s philandering history, Hillary backed his squishy denials, famously asserting on “60 Minutes” that she was not “some little woman standing by her man like Tammy Wynette.”

    • Good thing for the ‘Blue’ dress.

      Billy- “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Which resulted in his impeachment.

      Hillary – all NOT true according to Judge Politano.
      1. Hillary takes responsibility for her decision to use a personal account, and the challenges it has created.
      2. Her use of a private email account was allowed under State Department rules.
      3. Nothing she sent or received was marked classified.
      4. She provided all of her work-related emails to the State Department.

      If any of this is true, then WHY all the commotion?

      Do you see a pattern here?

  • There seems to be a serious disconnect with Obama and the Department of Justice/Federal Bureau of Investigation/Central Intelligence Agency. It doesn’t add up.

  • Here’s another interesting tidbit about HRC missing records from her days at Rose. Seems to be a recurrence. She is no stranger to the FBI.

    “In addition, investigators had the FBI conduct fingerprint analysis of the billing records. Of significance, the prints of Vince Foster and Hillary Clinton were found.

    The Senate Whitewater Committee concluded that Hillary Clinton was the person most likely to have put the billing records in her book room, or know how they got there. The Independent Counsel continues to investigate Ms. Clinton’s involvement in handling the records.

    For her part, Hillary Clinton has said that she has no idea how the billing records came to be in her book room.”

    Hail to the next POTUS.

  • She is as corrupt, as the day is long, and right now; the days are really long. As an Obama appointee, she serves at the discretion of the president, not the folks. If you’re waiting for a Clinton indictment, it isn’t about to come from this soldier. She spun a great tale on the sunday shows. Clearly, a chip off the old prevaricator himself.
