Former FBI Director James Comey’s Second Meeting with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch was a Frosty Exchange Where He Confronted Her About Political Interference
THIS IS THE SCANDAL THAT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATIONS INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016 ELECTION …
As reported at Circa, former FBI director James Comey told members of Congress in closed-door meetings that he confronted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch over her alleged interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.According to reports, the meeting got very tense when Comey confronted Lynch about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed. Comey told lawmakers that during the meeting, he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton. WOW!!! Folks, this would be obstruction of justice. According to the account, Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office.” It had been previously known that Comey testified that Lynch told him to call the FBI criminal investigation a “matter.”
This is all starting to make sense as the dots are connected and who really committed the real collusion and crimes
Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.
During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday, Comey alluded to the second exchange after publicly discussing an encounter with Lynch, where she ordered him not to refer to the criminal probe of Clinton’ handling of classified emails not as an “investigation” but rather as a “matter.” He suggested it smacked of political spin rather than the way professional law enforcement officers talk.
“That concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI’s work and that’s concerning,” Comey testified.
Comey told lawmakers in the close door session that he raised his concern with the attorney general that she had created a conflict of interest by meeting with Clinton’s husband, the former President Bill Clinton, on an airport tarmac while the investigation was ongoing.
During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.
Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office,” said one source who was briefed.
Liberal Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein of California has actually called for an investigation into this situation. This is unraveling very fast for Democrats.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says on CNN’s State of the Union … Calls for Investigation into Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions After Comey Testimony in Regards to the Clinton Email Scandal
Via RedState, in a interview on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that there should be an investigation into former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions that came out during former FBI directors testimony last Thursday to the Senate. Comey testified that Lynch improperly injected politics into the investigation. Comey was told to call the FBI criminal investigation a matter. However, in that case, Comey had no issue doing exactly what the AG told him to do and provided cover for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. Although now he claims it gave him a queasy feeling.
It’s not every day the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee says a political appointee of the same party needs to be investigated. But that’s exactly what Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) said on Sunday’s State of the Union on CNN of former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions in regards to the Clinton email scandal.
“I think we need to know more about that,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) on Sunday’s episode of State of the Union. “And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”
Feinstein’s comment comes in the wake of fired F.B.I. Director James Comey’s testimony last week in which he claimed Lynch — who herself created a firestorm when she made a visit to allegedly chitchat with Bill Clinton on the tarmac during the 2016 campaign — told him to call the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of email as Secretary of State a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”

James Comey Testifies that Obama AG Loretta Lynch Ordered Him to Downplay Hillary Clinton’s ‘Criminal Investigation’ and Call it a “MATTER” (VIDEO)
HOW IS THIS NOT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE? BECAUSE IT WAS ASKED FOR BY AN OBAMA OFFICIAL FOR HILLARY CLINTON … CALL IT A MATTER.
UNREAL!!! We learned during yesterday’s testimony from former FBI Director James Comey that, not only were the news media stories regarding Russia and President Donald Trump false, but also that former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch ordered him to downplay the Hillary Clinton FBI criminal investigation, and “call it a matter.” Lynch did not hope he would do this, she ordered him to do so.
James Comey appeared to work for the Federal Bureau of Matters. However, when Comey was given this directive, that was completely inappropriate, a conflict of interest and yes, a form of obstruction of justice, he only felt queasy. REALLY? In essence, he was running cover for Hillary’s campaign so that she could say, she was not under criminal investigation. But of course Comey is not partisan.
LANKFORD: OK. OK. You had mentioned before about some news stories and news accounts, but, without having to go into all the names and the specific times and to be able dip into all that, have there been news accounts about the Russia investigation, about collusion, about this whole event or accusations that, as you read the story, you were stunned about how wrong they got the facts
COMEY: Yes. There have been many, many stories purportedly based on classified information about — well, about lots of stuff, but especially about Russia, that are just dead wrong.
LANKFORD: I was interested in your comment that you made, as well, that the president said to you, if there were some satellite associates of his that did something wrong, it would be good to find that out.
That — the president seemed to talk to you specifically on March the 30th and say, I’m frustrated that the word is not getting out that I’m not under investigation, but if there are people that are in my circle that are, let’s finish the investigation. Is that how you took it, as well?
COMEY: Yes, sir. Yes.
LANKFORD: And then you made a comment earlier about the attorney general — previous attorney general — asking you about the investigation on the Clinton e-mails, saying that you’d been asked not to call it an “investigation” anymore, but to call it a “matter.”
And you had said that confused you. Can you give us additional details on that?
COMEY: Well, it concerned me, because we were at the point where we had refused to confirm the existence, as we typically do, of an investigation, for months, and it was getting to a place where that looked silly, because the campaigns were talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work.
The — the Clinton campaign, at the time, was using all kind of euphemisms — security review, matters, things like that, for what was going on. We were getting to a place where the attorney general and I were both going to have to testify and talk publicly about. And I wanted to know, was she going to authorize us to confirm we had an investigation?
And she said, yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter. And I said, why would I do that? And she said, just call it a matter.
And, again, you look back in hindsight, you think should I have resisted harder? I just said, all right, it isn’t worth — this isn’t a hill worth dying on and so I just said, OK, the press is going to completely ignore it. And that’s what happened.
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.
LANKFORD: It gave the impression that the campaign was somehow using the same language as the FBI, because you were handed the campaign language and told to be able (ph) to use the campaign language…
COMEY: Yeah — and — and again, I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but it gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate.
We had a criminal investigation open with — as I said before, the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We had an investigation open at the time, and so that gave me a queasy feeling.
LANKFORD: Thank you.
Hillary Clinton Takes Responsibility for Presidential Election Loss Then Blames FBI Director Comey, Russians & Wikileaks … If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president’
HILLARY, JUST GO AWAY … SHE BLAMES EVERYONE BUT HERSELF AND CONTINUES TO WHINE ABOUT LOSING …
Just when you think or hoped you had seen the last of her, Hilary Clinton comes back. At a Women for Women International event in New York, Clinton stated that she took full responsibility for losing the 2016 presidential election to Donald J. Trump, then went on to blame everyone else but herself for the loss. Clinton blamed FBI Director James Comey, Wikileaks, Russian interference and misogyny. Hillary continues with the right wing and now the Comey, Russian and Wikileaks conspiracy. After supposedly taking responsibility for the loss Hillary Clinton said, “If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president.” I shudder to think if that ever did happen.
What I find comical is that the most well funded campaign in history, one where the MSM was in the tank for Democrats that Hillary is still whining that how dare the people found out the truth about her and decided to not vote for her. The truth of the matter is that this was a “change” election and Hillary Clinton represents the establishment more than any candidate in modern times. She was a flawed candidate who could not tell the truth. Hillary’s scandals with private email servers and the Clinton Foundation were far too much for most Americans to stomach. And mostly, Hillary lost because she had no message and could not connect with the American people. There is a reason why the “Blue” wall of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin crumbled. Hillary Clinton and Democrats have become a party of NYC and LA, of the Northeast and the West Coast. They have forgot about that vast space of states and people in-between long ago and paid for it dearly in 2016.
Hillary Clinton delivered her most forceful critique of President Donald Trump’s 2016 victory on Tuesday, taking personal responsibility for her failed campaign but also pointed to the timing of a letter from FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference as factors.
“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event in New York.
“I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had,” Clinton said, before adding that she was “on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off.”
Clinton, as she has done in the past, also hung part of her 2016 loss on misogyny.
“Yes, I do think it played a role. I think other things did as well,” Clinton said.
But repeatedly, Clinton came back to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s role in the 2016 election and how he was able to tilt the scale in favor of Trump and against her.
Clinton, aides say, sees her role during the Trump years as a political activist who speaks out when issue she cares about are threatened. And on Tuesday, it was clear Clinton was ready to settle into that role.
“I am now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance,” Clinton said, drawing cheers from the crowd that included former aides, donors and celebrities like actress Meryl Streep.
Every time I hear this woman speak, I thank my lucky stars that the 2016 election went the way it did and remind myself just how important it is that President Trump won. Interesting enough, so now Hillary is an activist citizen and part of the resistance, yet during her concession speech to then President-elect Donald Trump she said, “I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country.” LIAR!!!
OBAMA HAS POLITICIZED THE IRS AND FBI … WHY NOT THIS?
In an interview Sunday on FOX News, Ambassador John Bolton said that the hacks during the election season could have been “a false flag” operation, possibly committed by the Obama administration itself. Bolton went on to say, “But I believe that intelligence has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.” The said reality is that it is even a question that its a possibility. That is just how politicized Obama made things.
Ambassador John Bolton claimed Sunday that hacks during the election season could have been “a false flag” operation — possibly committed by the Obama administration itself.
In an interview with Fox News’ Eric Shawn, Bolton questioned why FBI Director James Comey said during the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private server, there was no direct evidence found of foreign intelligence service penetration, but cyber fingerprints were found in regards to the presidential election.
“It is not at all clear to me just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC computers was not a false flag,” Bolton said. “So the question has to be asked, why did the Russians run their smart intelligence service against Hillary’s server, but their dumb intelligence service against the election?”
Shawn then asked Bolton — who has been mentioned as a possible Trump appointment — if he was accusing someone in “the administration or in the intelligence community of” the alleged false flag.
“We just don’t know,” Bolton said. “But I believe that the intelligence community has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.”
