Justice Dept. AG Lynch Testifies Has ‘Discussed’ Civil Legal Action Against Climate Change Deniers … But AG Lynch Indicates DOJ Not Required to Charge Hillary Clinton
IMAGINE THAT … OBAMA’S AG LOOKING TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE DENIERS BUT MUMS THE WORD ON HILLARY CLINTON.
See what happens when you on Obama’s enemies list and when you are not.
The Blaze reports that Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies and climate change deniers. Really, is this how ignorant the debate has become with the climate change charletons that they are comparing tobacco dangers to fossil fuels and climate change? Are you kidding? Wait a minute, which one is the scheme? Sorry, it is far from settled science that climate change is man made and anything could be done to change climate change. Note to climate change wackos, its the sun stupid. The climate has been changing since the birth of the planet, with or without man. Imagine that?

During Lynch’s testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen.

Contract that tough talk with AG Lynch’s position as to the possibility of indicting Hillary Clinton for her private server/email crimes and risking US national security. If you are a Democrat criminal and the FBI recommends charges against you, then AG Lynch says that the DOJ is not required to prosecute you. Attorney General Lynch indicates DOJ not required to charge Hillary Clinton if the FBI recommends charges. Imagine that.
The Department of Justice would not be required to have to prosecute Hillary Clinton even if the FBI were to recommend charges be filed against her for the use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has indicated.
The Washington Examiner reports that the nation’s top law enforcer — answering a question from Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, as to whether her agency would be “required” to pursue criminal charges against Clinton — responded:
“It would not be an operation of law, it would be an operation of procedures,” Lynch said.
As well, according to Lynch, a decision to pursue a criminal case would be “done in conjunction with the agents” involved in the probe, and would “not something that we would want to cut them out of the process.”
