Feinstein: "Congress Should Investigate If Lynch Pressured Comey To Cover For Hillary Clinton"

Tyler Durden's picture

In a surprisingly non-partisan take by Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the California senator said that Congress should investigate whether - as we discussed last Thursday - former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured former FBI Director James Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

"I think we need to 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."

"I think we need to know more about that," Feinstein told Briana Keilar on CNN's State of the Union, adding that "there's only way to know about it, and that's to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that."

As we noted last Thursday, Comey testified last Thursday that it gave him a "queasy" feeling after Lynch asked him to characterize his probe into Clinton's emails as a "matter," rather than an investigation. He told the Senate Intelligence Committee that such a request would match the wording of Clinton's campaign.  Feinstein said she would've also felt queasy.

"I would have a queasy feeling, too, though, to be candid with you," the longtime Senate Democrat said. She added that an investigation separate from the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the election is needed.

"I don't think we should mix the two," she added.

That said, when asked who do you believe, Trump or Comey, Feinstein said that “At this point, the FBI director”

Separately, Feinstein said she has not yet decided from Comey's testimony whether Trump's interactions with the ex-FBI director amount to obstruction of justice. “I don't know whether it's obstruction of justice. I don’t intend to draw any conclusions until investigations are finished,” she added.

Trump on Friday denied that he asked Comey to let "go" of his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and that he requested Comey pledge his loyalty to him prior to Comey's dismissal.  The president added that he is "100 percent" willing to testify about his interactions with Comey under oath, while playing down reporters' inquiries if he did in fact have "tapes" of his conversation with Comey.

I think we will see a few more Dems start to play it safe now that their many alt realities are collapsing.

If politicians do anything at all, its for self preservation.

I am not sure if I could handle that without a lot of booze and drugs.

So here we find ourselves. We can debate specifics all day. However, the obvious 900lb gorilla is / are Crimes.

And, in cases some of the upmost serious ones have been committed & absolutely No One person or Group has been problerly Investigated much less Arrested for.

Crimes Against Humanity & Crimes Against The American People, Treason & Sedition, Surveillance & Murder (Seth Rich) come to mind.

Complete, absolute, in your Face

Tyrannical Lawlessness.

Fuck this!

At this point these Scum Fuck Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Scum Fucks deserve No less than Public Executions LIVE for all the World to Witness.

Grant the Criminals absolutely NO SAFE QUARTER!

Whatever her doubtlessly nefarious reasons for doing this may be, they most definitely do not include trying to cater to republican voters. She is in california. She could eat a baby on live TV and would still be elected as long as there is a (D) next to her name.

Until Trump, contemporary US politics has been about, using their evet increasing, degenerate behavior to apply pressure to our selected officials.

A slippery slope indeed. Of course, this has all happened before, and has never ended well

Does congressional investigation mean a bunch of pedofiles discuss whether the pedofile positioned to protect them from pedophile prosecution should be as risk of loosing his position of protecting them?  Would you like me to guess the result of their yet to be started drawn out investigation?

It is also possible that the left is willing to go after Lowrenta and call whatever they find 'obstruction' so that they can set the bar at that level and use that as the precedent to take down Trump.  Sacrificing a Rook to capture the King.

intriguing - but i have major doubts whether the dims can think long-game like that.  

no, it's more eat-their-own mode now.   scramble and hail-marys all the way -  

scream and shout, dis-and-doubt, dumb-it-down all the way to the next election and keep the dimsheeple in the pen hoping they will still vote (D)


besides, even Bureau Busybodies HAVE to be glad the Skankle didn't get in.   ONLY people stupid enough to back her were on her PAYROLL.


that, and Mark Morford, who weekly denigrates himself into becoming the dumbest Libtard writer left - if he can sink any deeper into the shit *(which he CAN - just tune in for his next pile of stinking vomit next week and he'll do it)


Sad - and worse for San Franciscans,  The Saddening.

Hey DiFi, why not let Bob Mueller handle the investigation on Loretta Lynch?  Fuck the Congressional oversight committees...al they will do is leak info and telegraph info to change the story and let her off the hook.  You won't know dick with Mueller until he charges her or not (and a few other people as well).

Figure on one toaster per hot tub, and we get at least two.

After a coupla dozen or so, we switch over to nail guns.

Hot tubs would require the use of high priced hookers or small children.

Only way a politician would get into one, so that is a bad plan. Must not hurt the innocent.

I'm not sure what happened at the DNC this week, but I'm pretty sure cankles has fallen out of favor in certain circles.

The Vanity Fair article surely laid the groundwork for a shall we say "distancing" or so it would appear.

See Van Jones going after CANKLES? When the duped blacks abandon her...put a fork in it.

no doubt the zero lounge is being monitored  - for all kinds of purposes and reasons -   

the election really maxed me out on the participation here -  a lot of us spend a ton of time here

i think marketers AND big bro/sis/zhe  {i just saw a mark dice vid from over a year ago about new york city making a lawful fine of $125,000 if you don't say someone's preferred pronoun - and $250,000 if you are particularly offensive to the "person" who could be one of (or perhaps more than "one") as there are 31 - that's right 31 "gender" distinctions a person may make.  one of which is "other"  - of 31 possible choices, they stopped at 30.   I hear Toronto Canada has labeled 80 gender identification choices for the "Human"  -   could it be interpreted to include even "male" or "female" words?   

see how the encroachment upon freedom of speech is well developed and along a path that doesn't appear to bode well for independent thought - let alone speech.


i heard Fepe the Emperor Penguin took out Pepe.   RIP Pepe.      Fepe is bad-ass cool.   


Fepe believe about sharing wisdom and appreciating the quest for truth - the beauty of being alive, having the freedom and support within our communities in USA 


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsXAZgq37H8     look for the double-headed FEPE Emperor Penguin coat of arms 33 -  totally owning the illuminati 33 symbolism

RIP Pepe.    he had to go.

I want it to be true but it is too much to hope for. 

If I was them, I would want to make a big show of it so it looked like we had purged the crooks from the party. 

I am wondering if they are setting up to do this, have already arranged to find "nothing" so they can go after Trump and appear "fair and balanced."


Edit: And here it is:


"It is my strong recommendation that the Judiciary Committee investigate all issues that raise a question of obstruction of justice," the California Democrat wrote in a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley on Friday. "These issues should be developed by our legal staff, presented to us, and be subject to full committee hearings."


In the letter, Feinstein told Grassley she is "concerned" about Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats' and National Security Agency Director Admiral Rogers' refusals to answer questions from senators, adding that she wants to determine whether Trump asked Coats or Rogers "to take any action" on the Russia investigation.
