Judicial Watch President: James Comey, Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch should testify about Hillary email case

News, Politics

Loretta Lynch, the former Attorney General under Obama; James Comey, the recently fired FBI Director, and former President Bill Clinton “should testify” about their meddling in the Hillary email investigation, claims Tom Fitton, the president of the Judicial Watch, specifically mentioning the infamous plane meeting Bill and Lynch had on a plane, and the attorney general’s request for Comey to refer to the Hillary investigation as a “matter,” not an investigation.

Comey himself said that Lynch has asked this of him in his testimony from June 8 in the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The President of the Watch, Tom Fitton further said that the Justice Department ought to examine “all of the [Hillary] Clinton investigation and how it was handled so there’s a second independent look to see if it needs to be re-investigated.”

“Mr. Comey repeatedly misstated the law [on] the handling of classified material,”argued Fitton on FBN’s Risk & Reward on June 13. “You even have the attorney general [Lynch], after she met with Bill Clinton [in June 2016], said that that meeting cast a cloud over the investigation. Yet she didn’t recuse herself from the investigation, as Sessions did [over the Russia investigation].”

“I think there needs to be an honest second look at how that [e-mail] investigation was handled because there still needs to be justice for what Mrs. Clinton did and it wasn’t possible,” he added.

“It’s clear, Mr. Comey said — and I think this is the headline from his recent testimony and these reports — that the Clinton-Lynch meeting [in June 2016] was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to the Justice Department’s inability to fairly investigate Mrs. Clinton in a fair way,” Fitton explained.

“Ms. Lynch should testify and Mr. Comey should testify and Bill Clinton should testify,” Fitton added.

In the testimony from May 3 2017 about the Hillary Clinton investigation, James Comey said that he felt uncomfortable with many of then-Attorney General’s moves while the Hillary probe was still hot.

Remembering the meeting from June 27, 2016 between Bill Clinton and then-attorney general Lynch at the tarmac — amid the Clinton probe — James Comey commented,  “A number of things had gone on which I can’t talk about yet, that made me worry that the Department leadership could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution, without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system.”
