Senate Judiciary Committee Opens Probe into Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Efforts to Shape the FBI’s Investigation With 2016 Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign
IF THERE EVER WAS COLLUSION AND OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN OBAMA’S FORMER AG, LORETTA LYNCH.
During the Senate Judiciary Committee with former FBI director James Comey we learned there was actual collusion and obstruction of justice; however, it has nothing to do with the Trump administration, it was with the Obama one. On Friday, the Senate Judiciary Committee leaders said they are seeking information about former attorney general Loretta Lynch’s alleged efforts to stifle the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while Clinton was secretary of State. Yeah, that little investigation that Lynch wanted FBI Director Comey to call a matter. Comey testified, “When I said, we have opened a matter, they all reported the FBI has an investigation open. And so that concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about FBI’s work and that’s concerning.” However, in the end Comey had no problem doing what she said. Hmm, no notes taken and no obstruction of justice decided by Comey. Imagine that?
Following this amazing admission under oath by the former FBI director, even Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that there should be an investigation into former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions
The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.
In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”
Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.
Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton last year.
I WOULD SAY THIS IS SHOCKING BUT IT HAS BECOME THE NORM FROM THE VILE AND HATEFUL LEFT …
Actor Johnny Depp referenced assassinating Donald Trump during an appearance at Glastonbury, England during Cineramageddon. Depp said, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” REALLY? And we wonder why lunatics have attempted to assassinate Republican law makers why practicing baseball? REALLY? Maybe American law enforcement and the Secret Service need to pay Mr. Depp a visit when he returns home. This over the top crap of threats to Trump and those on the Right from the lunatic LEFT have got to end. Some one needs to be made an example of and prosecuted. This is not free speech and to hide behind the cowardice that it is a joke, is a joke.
“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said, to cheers from the crowd.
“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything. By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you are all a part of it.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked in reference to the death of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865.
“I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time,” he added.
THE LEFT HAS A LOT OF SOUL SEARCHING TO DO AND SOME EXPLAINING FOR THEIR HATEFUL, VIOLENT RHETORIC …
As reported at The Daily Caller, an assassination list was found on the body of James Hodgkinson, the Left-wing radical, who attempted to shoot Congressional Republicans while they practices baseball this past week in Alexandria, Va. As suspected by the fact that Hodgkinson’s asked whether those practicing were Republicans or Democrats, this was not a random act of violence. The assassination, kill list proves proof positive that this was a premeditated attempt to murder Republicans. Names on the hand written list included, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais and Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith. All conservative members of the House Freedom Caucus. This was a premeditated effort by a whack-job on the LEFT to assassinate Conservatives.
Imagine what the wall-to-wall news cycle would have been like had Hodgkinson been a Conservative with an assassination list, or a member of the Tea Party? But instead, he was a LEFTY who volunteered for Sanders’ campaign so Democrats and the MSM cry, for the moment, or the second, can’t we all just get along.
James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.
The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.
The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed. Fox News reported after this story that Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais and Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith are also on the list. All six congressmen are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members.
Isn’t it ironic and typical that for years we have been told by the MSM, Democrats and the LEFT that it was the Tea Party that was violent and that they would harm liberals and even make an attempt on former President Obama’s life. But instead, it is the LEFT that attempts assassination.
Democrat Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe Says After GOP Attempted Mass Assaination … 93 Million Americans Are Killed By Guns Everyday (VIDEO)
ANOTHER IGNORANT LIBERAL QUICK TO EXPLOIT A TRAGEDY TO GRAB PEOPLE’S GUNS …
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said following the shooting in Alexandria, VA yesterday that 93 million Americans were killed every day by guns. Huh? McAuliffe, the so-called Democrat darling to run for president in 2020 repeated it, 93 million. Imagine that, there are on 321.5 million people live in the United States. In other words, according to this brain surgeon who was so quick to bring up gun control following the shooting, without knowing any of the facts, it would take 3.5 days to kill everyone in the U.S. by gun violence. Care to amend your data Gov.McAuliffe? He would later correct himself when questioned by a reporter and say 93 individuals. Missed it by that much, McAuliffe says this is not what this day is about, yet he made it exactly about gun control. Interestingly enough, it was the two Capital police individuals that there there as a protective detail that saved all of these Congressmen and prevented this massacre.
“Let me say this, I think we need to do more to protect all of our citizens,” McAuliffe said. “I have long advocated—this is not what today is about, but there are too many guns on the street. We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.”
“Sir, just checking. Ninety-three million is a big number. Did you mean to say 93 million?” one reporter then asked.
“Ninety-three individuals a day,” McAuliffe corrected himself.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions Opening Statement on Russian Vote Interference & Comey Firing (VIDEO)
Attorney General Jeff Sessions categorically denies Russian collusion and rips Senate Committee …
Attorney General Jeff Sessions calls out the Senate committee and the individual political hack senators who would suggest that after his 35 years of service to the United States that he would collude with the Russian government in the 2016 election. Good for Jeff Sessions. He came out of the box swinging at these ridiculous accusations.
Let me state this clearly, colleagues. I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign. I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, at least some of you. And the suggestion that I participated in any collusion that I was aware of, any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country which I have served with honor for 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process an appalling and detestable lie.
ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS: Thank you very much, Chairman Burr and ranking member Warner for allowing me to publicly appear before your committee today. I appreciate the committee’s critically important efforts to investigate Russian interference with our democratic processes.
Such interference can never be tolerated and I encourage every effort to get to the bottom of any such allegations. As you know, the Deputy Attorney General has appointed a special counsel to investigate the matters related to the Russian interference in the 2016 election. I’m here today to address several issues that have been specifically raised before this committee. And I appreciate the opportunity to respond to questions as fully as the Lord enables me to do so. As I advise you, Mr. Chairman, with long standing Department of Justice practice, I cannot and will not violate my duty to protect confidential communications I have with the president. Let me address issues directly. I did not have any private meetings, nor do I recall any conversations, with any Russian officials at the Mayflower hotel.
I did not attend any meetings separately prior to the speech attended by the president today. I attended a reception with my staff, that included at least two dozen people and President Trump, though I do recall several conversations I had during that pre-speech reception, and I do not have recollection of meeting or talking to the Russian ambassador or any other Russian officials. If any brief interaction occurred in passing with the Russian ambassador in that reception, I do not remember it. After the speech, I was interviewed by the news media. There was an area for that in a different room and then I left the hotel. Whether I attended a reception where the Russian ambassador was also present is entirely beside the point of this investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
Let me state this clearly, colleagues. I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign. I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, at least some of you. And the suggestion that I participated in any collusion that I was aware of, any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country which I have served with honor for 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process an appalling and detestable lie. Relatedly, there is the assertion that I did not answer Senator Franken’s question honestly in my confirmation hearing.
Colleagues, that is false. I can’t say colleagues now. I’m no longer a part of this body, but a former colleague. That is false. This is what happened. Senator Franken asked me a rambling question after some six hours of testimony that included dramatic new allegations that the United States intelligence community, the U.S. intelligence community had advised President-elect Trump “That there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump’s surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” I was taken aback by that explosive allegation which he said was being reported as breaking news that very day, in which I had not heard. I wanted to refute that immediately. Any suggestion that I was part of such an activity.
I replied to Senator Franken this way. “Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians and I’m unable to comment on it.”
