Lawmakers: Loretta Lynch Forthcoming in Closed-Door Interview – Answered More Questions Than Comey on Certain Topics
Loretta Lynch arrived on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch finished up a 6-hour closed-door interview with lawmakers Wednesday evening.
Loretta Lynch arrived on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning as part of a joint investigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committees into the handling of the Clinton email investigation and her role in RussiaGate.
Lawmakers wanted to ask Loretta Lynch questions about her June 2016 tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton at the Phoenix International airport and Comey’s decision to usurp the DOJ when he gave a presser exonerating Hillary Clinton on July 5th.
Lynch, Obama’s corrupt Attorney General, was subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee on Thanksgiving along with the equally corrupt former FBI Director James Comey.
Comey testified twice to the Committees, including on Monday and refused to answer many questions.
According to lawmakers, Loretta Lynch was much more forthcoming about certain topics. Lynch and her lawyers weren’t raising objections to questions like Comey and his lawyers did on many topics.
Leaving the interview, Democrats said there was nothing new to learn from Lynch, while Republicans pointed to her differences with Comey in the Clinton investigation and said there were still questions about her meeting with the former President in 2016.

Republicans waited too long to subpoena Loretta Lynch and James Comey; House Democrats will take back the gavel in about two weeks.
