Surprise, surprise. Just a couple weeks after former president Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch behind the closed doors of a private jet, all potential charges against his wife have been denied.
The Justice Department’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email setup has been formally closed without any criminal charges, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday. The decision had been expected and was largely a formality given FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation a day earlier against any prosecution. Even before Comey’s public statement, Lynch had said she intended to accept the recommendations of the FBI director and of her career prosecutors.
Even so, it officially closes out an FBI investigation that had dogged Clinton for the last year and proved a major distraction on the campaign trail as she emerged as the Democratic presidential front-runner. Lynch said she met with Comey and prosecutors Wednesday and agreed that the investigation, which looked into the potential mishandling of classified information, should be concluded.
FBI Director James Comey will be testifying in front of Congress today to defend his decision against recommending criminal charges. Loretta Lynch herself will be testifying at a hearing sometime next week.
It shouldn’t surprise anybody that Lynch -a woman who works for Obama, who just endorsed Hillary Clinton- would conveniently dismiss any charges against Clinton 2 weeks before the Democratic Convention. The system is rigged to protect the Democratic political establishment. The Clinton’s believe they are above the law, and the FBI and the Justice Department seem to agree.
