During disgraced former FBI Director James Comey’s highly-anticipated Senate testimony on Thursday, several bombshell revelations were made.
From Comey’s admission that President Trump was not under FBI investigation to acknowledging that he was never pressured by the White House to end any investigation, Comey’s testimony crushed the dreams of Democrats and the liberal media looking to take down this administration.
While the focus of Comey’s testimony was related to President Trump, the former FBI Director broke some news when he revealed that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured him to refer to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server as a mere “matter.”
Well, Michael Mukasey, President George W. Bush’s Attorney General, refused to hold anything back in his condemnation of Lynch’s conduct, saying that her actions made the Department of Justice “an arm of the Clinton campaign.”
In an interview with Newsmax, Mukasey blasted Lynch, calling her actions “egregious”:
What makes it egregious is the fact — and I think it’s obvious that it is a fact — that the attorney general of the United States was adjusting the way the department talked about its business so as to coincide with the way the Clinton campaign talked about that business.
In other words, it made the Department of Justice essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign. That is a betrayal of the department and of its independence to illustrate that clearly that the attorney general was essentially in the tank for Secretary Clinton.

After listening to Comey’s claim that Lynch pressured him, there is a strong case to be made that Obama’s Attorney General willfully obstructed justice, with the goal of aiding Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
In his testimony, Comey made it clear that Lynch wanted the FBI and Clinton campaign to have same message, essentially have the FBI collude with Clinton’s team. Comey explained that the order “gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way the political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate.”
As Mukasey explained, Lynch’s actions made it clear that she was openly politicizing the Department of Justice to benefit Ms. Clinton’s campaign, something that cannot be tolerated.
If Comey’s claims are accurate, then this Department of Justice should seriously consider charging Ms. Lynch with obstruction of justice, as she severely interfered with the Clinton investigation to protect her party.
Do you think Lynch obstructed justice? Should she be charged with a crime? Share your thoughts below!
