During a wide-ranging interview with NBC’s Lester Holt on Monday, former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch suggested that former FBI Director James Comey was less than truthful during his Senate testimony last year. The point of contention is Comey’s claim that when Lynch directed him to refer to the Hillary Clinton email probe as a “matter” rather than an “investigation,” it had made him feel “queasy.” According to Lynch, they had discussed the issue fully and Comey, at the time, had no problem with it.
“He said it made him feel strange,” Holt reminded Lynch during the exclusive interview. “He noted it. What did you mean when you said matter instead and not a investigation?”
“I heard about that testimony,” Lynch responded. “I didn’t watch it at the time, but it was brought to my attention later and people were raising it with me.”
“My first response was, ‘where, what is the issue here?’ I remember specifically talking with him — as we talked about sensitive things on a number of occasions,” she continued. “We often would have to discuss sensitive matters, sensitive issues, terrorism and the like, law enforcement policy and the like.”
