Top Dem Dianne Feinstein Wants Congress to Open a New Investigation — Into Ex-AG Loretta Lynch

How ironic that when Comey testified last week he claims to have felt “queasy” after Lynch asked him to characterize his probe into Clinton’s emails as a “matter,” instead of an investigation. 

“I think we need to know more about that,” Feinstein told host Brianna Keilar on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“And there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that,” Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said.

“I don’t know whether it’s obstruction of justice. I don’t intend to draw any conclusions until investigations are finished,” she added.

Trump on Friday denied that he asked Comey to let “go” of his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and that he requested Comey pledge his loyalty to him prior to Comey’s dismissal.

The president added that he is “100 percent” willing to testify about his interactions with Comey under oath.

According to ijr,

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said on Sunday that Congress needs to look into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions during the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

Testifying before Congress last week, former FBI Director James Comey revealed that Lynch once pressured him to call the Clinton probe a “matter” rather than a formal investigation.

“It was inaccurate,” Comey testified. “We had an investigation open for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, we had an investigation open at the time. That gave me a queasy feeling.”

When asked if Lynch was giving “cover” to the Clinton campaign, Feinstein told CNN she didn’t know — but she did call for a congressional probe into the matter.

“I would have a queasy feeling, too, though, to be candid with you,” she said. “I think we need to know more about that. And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”
