A New York Times report on Saturday, April 22 claimed that FBI Director James Comey decided to reveal last year that he was re-opening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton because he suspected Attorney General Loretta Lynch was covering up for her — and because an email found by Russian hackers seemed to support those suspicions.
The Times’ investigative report suggests that a U.S. intelligence agency managed to intercept some of what Russian hackers were stealing — and that one document, “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 the Times, Comey feared that Lynch — who had insisted the Clinton probe be referred to as a “matter” and not as an “investigation,” and who suggested the investigation was not criminal when, in fact, it was — would declare the case closed, and then Russian hackers would leak the document to undermine the FBI’s image of independence.
The Times notes: “Mr. Comey’s defenders regard this as one of the untold stories of the Clinton investigation, one they say helps explain his decision-making.” And if a local news reporter in Phoenix had not caught Lynch meeting with former President Bill Clinton, she might have succeeded in sheltering the Clintons even more effectively than she did.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note: We have stated in previous posts that it is remarkable how the Democrats, from the Obama White House down, could so often demonstrate how little regard they had for doing things within the law. The FBI had what it saw as absolute proof that Obama, the Clintons, and many other Democrats were not just willing, but eager and able, to find loopholes to help circumvent US laws. There was further absolute proof that Loretta Lynch, the head of the US Department of Justice, was deeply implicated in Democrat cover-up activities. As you know from the behavior of the Democrats right up to the present, they have not yet decided to change their stripes and become respectable and law-abiding. (Apparently this goal has not even made it onto the Democrats’ action plan early draft document yet…which means we can certainly look forward to more of their lowdown highjinks in weeks and months to come. So the Democrats, just as Obama said while in office, “don’t have a plan yet.” We already know they have no honor or integrity. What is it the Democrats DO have? They sure look empty from here.)
