Loretta Lynch Is In Deep Trouble With The Donald

President Trump on Tuesday accused former Attorney General Loretta Lynch of “illegal” behavior in her handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email server, alleging the ex-top cop provided “protection” for the Democratic presidential nominee.

The president drew attention to Lynch ahead of a Senate hearing where his own AG, Jeff Sessions, is set to testify on the Russia investigation.

Trump’s tweet appeared to draw on the related June 8 testimony of former FBI Director James Comey — whom Trump controversially fired. Comey revealed to Congress that Lynch told him to call the investigation a “matter” when speaking to the press and said he was also troubled by Lynch’s meeting on a Phoenix tarmac with former President Bill Clinton. Comey was so disturbed by the incidents, he held a press conference himself to discuss the case before presenting his findings to Lynch.

“A.G. Lynch made law enforcement decisions for political purposes…gave Hillary Clinton a free pass and protection. Totally illegal!” Trump tweeted.
