Senate probes Loretta Lynch's alleged interference in Clinton email investigation

Judiciary committee asks Lynch to disclose Clinton email conversations

The Senate Judiciary Committee is investigating former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, according to a statement posted on the committee's website Friday afternoon.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz reportedly wrote an email recounting the Lynch-Renteria communication while she was still chair=woman of the Democratic National Committee. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who served at the time as DNC chair, was allegedly hacked by Russian Federation, though the Federal Bureau of Investigation later discounted its reliability.

A bipartisan group of committee members is probing former Attorney General Loretta Lynch's interference on behalf of Trump's rival - former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the FBI's criminal investigation into her email scandal. Additionally, the senators asked if the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted them to investigate the alleged communications. The Judiciary Committee is now interested in probing the allegations. According to the Post report, the document - reportedly central to Comey's actions on the Clinton e-mail probe - was assessed by Comey's own Federal Bureau of Investigation to be unreliable and possibly fake.

Similar letters by the committee leader were sent to Open Society Foundations' General Counsel Gail Scovell, Renteria, and Open Society Fellowship's Leonard Bernardo seeking details about reported communication and copies of any related documents. "The Senate Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department and is obliged to oversee any potential misconduct or inappropriate political influence at these agencies", Grassley said in a press statement. Amanda Renteria, the person Lynch allegedly told, says she doesn't know Lynch and has never spoken to her. "Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far". Circa's John Solomon and Sara A. Carter reported: "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".

Grassley gave Lynch a July 6 deadline to submit answers to the Judiciary Committee regarding her involvement in the Clinton email investigation.
