James Comey has testified that ex-attorney general Loretta Lynch requested from him to refer to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails as a “matter” instead of an investigation.
He testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, claiming that Lynch’s request made him feel “queasy.”
But Feinstein also said that she would have had “a queasy feeling too.”
Feinstein, the committee’s top democrat, said that she didn’t know if Loretta Lynch was providing cover for the Clinton campaign, but said that the request she gave to Comey would have given her a queasy feeling too. “I think we need to know more about that,” the California senator said. “And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the judiciary committee take a look at that.”
According to our source, Conservative Fighters, Feinstein said that an investigation into Lynch’s conduct with the Clinton campaign should be separate from the current Congressional investigation into potential ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.
“I don’t think we should mix the two,” Feinstein said. “I don’t know whether it’s obstruction of justice. I don’t intend to draw any conclusions until investigations are finished.”
