Feinstein: Congress should probe whether Lynch provided cover for ClintonAnd I agree, something I never thought I'd say regarding Feinstein. Or: maybe she's trying to preempt a real investigation? But I give her the benefit of the doubt, this one time.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Sunday said Congress should look into former FBI Director James Comey’s revelation that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to downplay the nature of his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Comey said Lynch had asked him to refer to the probe as a "matter" rather than an investigation, an exchange that he said made him feel queasy.
Asked whether Lynch was providing cover for Clinton, Feinstein said she couldn’t answer.
“I would have a queasy feeling too, though, to be candid with you,” she said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “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.”
But Feinstein emphasized that this investigation should be separate from the one into potential ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.
