Hillary Loretta Lynch emails

Virtually unnoticed by the majority of corporate media, on Wednesday — in a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the FBI’s oversight of an investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails — Director James Comey revealed a murky effort as outlined in an undisclosed document by Attorney General Loretta Lynch or her associates to ensure the former presidential candidate would not be charged.

No matter what was divined during that investigation, this peculiar document apparently evinced the thwarting by Lynch and associates of any effort to hold Clinton accountable.

But Comey, mildly recalcitrant in testimony due to the classified nature of ongoing investigations, refused to reveal any details about the ostensible document — or about why Lynch would have employed such extreme protectionism on the topic of Clinton.

A report from the New York Times last month first discussed the ostensible contents of this mystery document and its implications, stating it appeared Comey and his associates harbored misgivings about the oversight of their bosses at the Justice Department — and whether or not their biases would allow for a neutral probe.

Speaking on condition of anonymity with more than 30 current and former law enforcement, congressional, and other officials, the Times found Comey’s quasi-rogue attitude toward supervisory departments and tradition of bureau secrecy caused friction between the DOJ and FBI — and extended specifically to his direct boss, Lynch.

Lynch, the Times inquiry found, refused even to allow Comey to publicly term the probe of Clinton an “investigation” — over fears such semantics would prejudice the public against the former secretary of state.

“His misgivings were only fueled by the discovery last year of a document written by a Democratic operative that seemed — at least in the eyes of Mr. Comey and his aides — to raise questions about her independence. In a bizarre example of how tangled the F.B.I. investigations had become, the document had been stolen by Russian hackers,” the Times reported.

Of course, the theory Russian hackers actively subverted the U.S. presidential election — enjoining willing and tacit participants in a scheme to both leak information and insert pro-Russian, anti-Clinton propaganda — has never been unassailably proven.

Nevertheless, the Times reports officials from the U.S. Intelligence Community were, at times, privy to information hacked by The Russians — and even received a cache of hacked documents for perusal.

That Lynch, or someone close to her, intended to undertake a Herculean effort to ensure Hillary Clinton would survive the crucial probe over wrongdoings and misbehavior — as putatively revealed in this undisclosed, explosive document — comprised one bit of information seen by the Russians, Comey worried. Continued the Times report,

The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document.

Read one way, it was standard Washington political chatter. Read another way, it suggested that a political operative might have insight into Ms. Lynch’s thinking.

Normally, when the F.B.I. recommends closing a case, the Justice Department agrees and nobody says anything. The consensus in both places was that the typical procedure would not suffice in this instance, but who would be the spokesman?

The document complicated that calculation, according to officials. If Ms. Lynch announced that the case was closed, and Russia leaked the document, Mr. Comey believed it would raise doubts about the independence of the investigation.

Even the very existence of this damning document has never been proven — perhaps due to its incendiary contents.

At Wednesday’s hearing, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley referenced the New York Times’ article in questioning Comey, stating it “reportedly provided assurances that Attorney General Lynch would protect Secretary Clinton by making sure the FBI investigation ‘didn’t go too far.’”

“How, and when, did you first learn of this document? Also, who sent it and who received it?” Grassley queried the FBI chief.

“That’s not a question I can answer in this forum, Mr. Chairman, because it would call for a classified response,” Comey stymied. “I have briefed leadership of the intelligence committees on that particular issue, but I can’t talk about it here.”

Grassley, not content at the stonewall tactic, pressed further in a similar vein, asking,

What steps did the FBI take to determine whether Attorney General Lynch had actually given assurances that the political fix was in no matter what? Did the FBI interview the person who wrote the email? If not, why not?

Comey balked, however, refusing on the same grounds his answer would be considered classified — and maintained that position, even when Grassley noted the FBI had yet to answer the Committee’s request to view the contentious document, described occasionally as an email, replying,

I’m not confirming there was an email, sir. I can’t — the subject is classified and in an appropriate forum I’d be happy to brief you on it. But I can’t do it in an open hearing.

Lynch’s apparent loyalty to Clinton came into sharp focus on a number of occasions — including in a private meeting on an airport tarmac between herself and former President Bill Clinton — amid the ongoing investigation of Secretary Clinton, which Lynch at least semantically opposed.

Senator John Cornyn, in questioning Comey, pointed to both the unrevealed email or document and the tarmac meeting that exploded international ire for its brazen indiscretion, stating,

[I]t was the former attorney general Loretta Lynch, who up until that meeting with President Clinton, was the person responsible for making the decision whether to convene a grand jury involving the allegations against Secretary Clinton. And it was former attorney general Loretta Lynch who apparently forbade you from using the word investigation. Indeed, if the New York Times story is true, a Democratic operative expressed confidence that the former attorney general would keep that investigation from going very far.

With the FBI still looking into the campaigns and communications of Clinton, the document in question — and its likely damning contents pegging the U.S. Attorney General responsible for abating efforts to levy charges as needed against the former secretary of state — could prove combustible, if not detrimental, to assumed neutrality of high-level investigators in preeminent law enforcement agencies.

James Comey maintains the bureau “made right decisions” in its investigations, no matter the alleged ambivalence from his boss, Loretta Lynch — but, in order to earn the trust of Congress and the American public, it would behoove the FBI or any other entity in possession of the startling document to reveal its contents to the world.

Until then, flagrant and surreptitious stonewalling of the FBI’s probe, as controvertible then as at present, will paint the top law enforcement agency’s efforts against Clinton as an impotent remnant of failed presidential aspirations — but further evidence that family’s dynasty had been gifted impunity of steel from its nascent days in Arkansas.

    Collusion between the FBI and the Justice Dept. I’m shocked, I tell you, shocked! And what will be done about it? I’ll tell you..NOT A THING!

    • Why should anything be done about what has become routine in the last century?

  • Pierce

    The biggest reason matters can’t be disclosed in a public hearing? Because too much of the American public might get wise to DC corruption and start doing something about it.

    • Similar to what they’ve done about what has been reported in the media for decades?

    She is in `The Club` so what else should we expect. Justice?

    • PopDeGator

      Real justice, if it happened, would be in the form of a tall tree and about twenty feet of rope.

  • Simon says

    is there a single honest lawyer left in DC?…how has this been allowed to stand?

  • Frank

    Loretta Lynch is due for some criminal charges, such as Obstruction of Justice and Witness Tampering, and could even be named as a Defendant in a RICO case against the Clinton Crime Syndicate.
    Justice in the Old West would never have been deferred this long, the Clintons and their criminal associates and facilitators would have all swung at the end of a rope by now.

    Female minorities given high position of power, are the worst. They will do anything required by their handlers, to maintain their power and privilege

    • Especially when their bosses are female minorities.
      These orders would have come from Valerie Jarrett to give Obama plausible deniability.

        The same way that Janet Reno took the heat for ordering the National Guard to storm the compound in Waco and kill all those people. The only person in authority to give such an order was Slick Willie Clinton but he got Reno to run interference for him.

        • It must have been the National Guard in your alternative universe because it was the FBI and the BATFE in this one.

          • PopDeGator

            The Texas ARNG provided the Bradley fighting vehicles and some other equipment. The FBI actually drove the vehicles and initiated the breach of the compound on Reno’s orders. Slick Willie wanted to wait them out, Reno didn’t and in the end Slick Willie went along with Reno so the deaths are on him not her. I was just following orders, Mein Fuhrer.

  • When will you consider it to be too late?

  • Surprising.

  • PoshZzola

    It’s already too late. America must (and is) now paying the cost for years of corruption and warmongering. The thing you must do now is prepare. The system must crash before it can get better. There’s no other way around it.

    Homey Comey is Fired one day later from your post. Is there a glimmer of Equal Justice coming? I have no idea, but agree with your sentiments.
    CYA, this could get Frisky. Riots and Wars are excellent diversionary tactics when the peasants get too close to getting some justice on the Elitists.
