Loretta Lynch, former attorney general under the Obama Administration, has long been suspected of delaying and otherwise hampering the Clinton email investigation for political purposes. Judge Andrew Napolitano doesn’t think she’ll be getting off easy.
Recently on Fox News, Judge Napolitano issued a startling proclamation that Loretta Lynch could find herself facing a felony charge with a 5-10 year jail sentence. (via The Blaze)
The Senate Judiciary Committee inquired as to whether Loretta Lynch had ever had communications with former DNC Chairwoman Rep. Wasserman Schultz, her staff, associates, or any other current or formal DNC officials about the Clinton email investigation. There has been concern that the two were in communication about advancing DNC interests and improperly utilizing Loretta’s influence and power as attorney general to make that a reality.
Judge Napolitano said that not only can they force the former attorney general to testify, but that they can take it one step further:
“There is enough evidence here, just on the basis of the little snippets given to the Senate Intelligence Committee by former FBI Director Jim Comey, that Mrs. Lynch was either conflicted or working at odds with the Justice Department and in behalf of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and the DNC when she told them to use different terminology for the investigation.”
What Napolitano is referring to in this statement was when former FBI director James Comey testified under oath that, while conducting the Clinton investigation, Loretta Lynch — who at the time was attorney general — instructed him to publicly refer to the investigation as a “matter” rather than an actual investigation.
James Comey would also state that Lynch’s request made him feel “queasy,” mentioning “that concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI’s work, and that, that’s concerning.” (via Politico)
The Judge continued, saying that such “terminology may be indicative of a mindset on the part of Attorney General Lynch that she was going to do whatever she could to prevent Mrs. Clinton from getting indicted.” He also mentioned that current Attorney General Jeff Sessions can initiate a separate Department of Justice investigation to find out if indeed there was any misconduct.
There have been allegations that documentation exists regarding Loretta Lynch and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz — specifically on efforts Lynch would take to expand DNC interests while in office. If such evidence were to be found and exposed, that could lead to some trouble for Lynch.
Napolitano continued with more information that should startle the former attorney general: “It’s a felony. Depending on what they charge her with, it could be five or ten years in jail. It’s very serious. It’s the equivalent of obstruction of justice.” These are some strong words from a respected legal mind.
Hopefully, President Trump and Attorney General Sessions will spearhead a formal investigation into this matter to uncover what really happened. While I’m sure the Democrats will attempt to derail any such investigation from occurring, the American people deserve to know the absolute truth — wherever it might lead.
