Top Dem Calls for Investigation into Clinton FBI Interference

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) wants an investigation into whether or not Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, interfered with the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server.

Rumors of blatant attempts to mislead the public about the investigation into Hillary Clinton surfaced last week, when former FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress. Comey said that Lynch had asked him to call the probe into Hillary Clinton a “matter,,” rather than what it actually was: an FBI criminal investigation.

Comey said he thought Lynch was politically motivated, trying to “align the way [the FBI] talked about our work with the way the political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate.”

Comey added that, while he complied with Lynch’s request, the whole incident made him feel “queasy.”

Feinstein, who is so far the only top Democrat to back an investigation, said she “would have a queasy feeling, too,” if Comey’s account is true.

“I think we need to know more about that and there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the judiciary committee take a look at that,” said Feinstein.

As the Trump-Russia scandal continues to fizzle out, an investigation into their own 2016 presidential candidate’s wrongdoing would be bad news for Democrats. Feinstein deserves some credit for putting the truth—and the legitimacy of government—over what’s best for her party.
