Lynch says Comey didn't raise objections over handling of Clinton investigation

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she would have resigned from the Clinton email server investigation had it been legally advised following her meeting with former President Bill Clinton

"Why is it that the attorney general had an extra 30, 45 minutes on her schedule?"

But despite the criminal probe hanging over Hillary's head at the time, she insisted in the interview broadcast Monday that the topic never came up and the two talked only 'about innocuous things'.

"This was a very sensitive investigation, as everyone knew", she said.

Chaffetz noted the timing of events that played out following the meeting, regarding the Clinton email probe and the former first lady's ultimate exoneration. "What did you mean when you called it a matter instead of an investigation?" "It makes no sense", he said. In the note, Boente wrote that Comey told the AG he was concerned about an instance in which Sessions was kicked out of the room and he was left alone with the president - yet another anecdote the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director brought up during his Senate testimony.

The former president, she said, told her a "long but charming story" about his grandchildren and talked about "issues of the day" including the United Kingdom's decision to exit the European Union.

"I was told he wanted to come on and say hello and said, 'Okay, we can do that, ' because it was, in my mind, similar to how I'd encountered numerous other people in airports over the years", Lynch told me in the latest episode of "Cape Up."


Political commentator Michelle Malkin believes former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch were involved in a Clinton cover-up and will soon face the consequences. Lynch replied. "I can tell you that it was a meeting like any other that we had had, where we talked about the issues".

Tom Fitton, president of the right-leaning watchdog group Judicial Watch, said Saturday on the Fox News Channel that 'We still don't have a full explanation from either her or Bill Clinton about what went on'.

"He didn't raise any concerns?"

The interview also addressed her infamous Phoenix tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton in June 2016, which came shortly before she closed the case against Mrs. Clinton on July 7.

"You always consult the legal experts", she said. "When we typically do not confirm or deny investigations into anything, with rare exceptions".
