FBI director takes center stage in Clinton email case
By Julian Hattem - 07/02/16 06:03 AM EDT
FBI Director James Comey is now firmly in the driver’s seat of the Hillary Clinton
email investigation, after Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged she
would accept whatever course of action his bureau and career prosecutors
Lynch’s influence will continue to be felt throughout
the department, and her refusal to fully remove herself from the case
ensures that she will continue to be briefed about its developments.
Prosecutors within her department — not the FBI — will ultimately decide
whether or not to press ahead with charges.
Loretta Lynch falls under the Clintons’ corrupting influence
She can’t help herself. Even yesterday, with the political world fixated on her meeting with FBI agents, Hillary Clinton had her flack mislead the public.
A spokesman said she gave a “voluntary” interview, which is true only
because she agreed to talk instead of waiting to be subpoenaed. The
flack also said she was “pleased” to assist the gumshoes.
Who believes she was “pleased” to be interviewed by the FBI in a criminal investigation that could upend her life?
But that’s the way the Clintons roll.
