  • Lynch conduct makes Feinstein 'queasy'

The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to hear from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, after ousted FBI Director James Comey implied she interfered in the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server during the 2016 presidential campaign.

A letter requesting information from Lynch was signed by Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein.

A group of senators from the Senate Judiciary Committee has revealed that an investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch's role in the inquiry into Hillary Clinton's emails is under way.

Comey said that Lynch's widely criticized meeting on an airport tarmac in Pheonix with former Bill Clinton in June 2016, as well as her request that he call the investigation a "matter", convinced him that he had to take action to prove the Clinton investigation was being fairly conducted. 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 can not talk about yet" that made him anxious about Ms.

CBS News confirmed the existence of the Russian intelligence document after the Post reported it.

He also told lawmakers that he was concerned that Lynch could be impartial in overseeing the FBI investigation, although he declined to offer more details. According to the Post, this document described - but did not contain a copy of - an alleged email between then-DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Leonard Benardo, who leads a pro-democracy think tank.

Ousted FBI Director James Comey cited the email as the reason behind his decision to publicly announce the end of the investigation into Clinton's emails, and was later used as justification by President Donald Trump to fire Comey.

Lynch and former president Bill Clinton (center-right) met on an airport tarmac in Arizona previous year, but insisted they never discussed Hillary's pending case.

Comey told the committee earlier this month that Lynch, his superior in the Justice Department, had asked him to refer to the probe as a "matter," rather than an investigation, while authorizing him to confirm its existence.

An email reportedly recounting that alleged conversation and authored by Rep.

The Washington Post story reported the document in question was viewed as "unreliable and possibly a fake" by people within the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Sen. Lindsay Graham, who would have been present for classified testimony on the Russian Federation probe, has publicly stated that he doubted the purported Lynch document was fake.
