The entire political world is glued to their TVs and computer screens as they watch former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee today.
So far, we have learned that Comey “closely coordinated” his testimony with the special prosecutor investigating Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election.
While there have been major bombshells that have dropped prior to his testimony, the former FBI Director made some major news regarding Hillary Clinton.
During his testimony, the former FBI Director revealed that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked Comey to refer to the probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email server a “matter,” and not as a criminal investigation.
James Comey: Former AG Loretta Lynch urged him to refer to investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails as a ‘matter’ https://t.co/AyQo1Q7Ato

From Town Hall:
“She [Lynch] told me to call it a matter, which confused and concerned me. But that was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the [Justice] Department if we’re to close this case credibly,” Comey said.
Comey’s revelation came after a question from Chairman Richard Burr, who asked the former director how the June 2016 secret meeting between Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on her private plane effected his decisions surrounding the case. At the time of the meeting, Clinton was under criminal investigation for storing and sharing top secret and classified information on a private server. Days later, Comey announced she would not be referred to the Justice Department of prosecution.

To the average American, it sounds as though Ms. Lynch was trying to interfere into the FBI’s Hillary Clinton investigation, pressuring Comey to minimize the significance of Hillary’s illegal email server.
Given the explosive nature of Comey’s statements, an honest media would cover Lynch’s apparent obstruction of justice, but don’t hold your breath. The liberal media has never cared about Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server and won’t care about Comey’s comments about the investigation either.
Instead, the liberal media will continue to peddle the lie that President Trump pressured Comey to end the FBI investigation of Michael Flynn as a way of destroying this presidency.
