 James Comey: Trump Didn’t Try To Interfere in Investigation But Lynch Did

One of the most interesting revelations from James Comey is something no mainstream media source will mention, but it’s extremely important just the same and embarrassing to democrats.  Before Comey’s appearance, many democrats called for Trump’s head because he tried to stop the investigation into Gen Flynn.  Unfortunately, the democrats were disappointed that Comey shot down that assertion.  He did however mention the Justice Department did try to get him to alter information on an ongoing investigation.  From Loretta Lynch.

Comey says that Loretta Lynch asked him to quit referring to the criminal investigation into the corruption of Hillary Clinton as a criminal investigation:

“At one point the attorney general had directed me not to call it investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which concerned and confused me.”

Comey made his remarks during a Senate hearing, offering testimony about the ongoing investigation into Russia’s attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election and the decision by former President Donald Trump to fire him.

He acknowledged during the hearing that there were other reasons why he felt he had to make the statement about Clinton’s investigation, including “one significant” reason, which had to remain classified.

He said that Lynch’s meeting on the tarmac with former president Bill Clinton during the campaign was the ultimate reason why he decided to make a public statement when the department decided not to prosecute Hillary Clinton.

“In a ultimately conclusive way, that was the thing that capped it for me, that I had to do something separately to protect the credibility of the investigation, which meant both the FBI and the Justice Department,” he said.

In that announcement, Comey laid out a false test on whether charges are warranted.  He said since she didn’t intentionally mean to jeopardize the security of classified information, she should not be tried.  He came to the same conclusion about Huma Abedin.  That is not how the law reads.  The law says if you are careless with classified information, whether intentional or not, you are equally guilty.
