The United States Senate has announced it will officially investigate former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The announcement happened due to former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony that she asked him to refer to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal as a “matter” instead of an “investigation.”

Now, the Judiciary Committee is determined to get to the bottom of Lynch’s highly political, and probably illegal, actions to support Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

As ABC News reports:

A bipartisan group of Senate Judiciary Committee leaders is examining former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s alleged interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The group is seeking details about Lynch’s communication with a Clinton campaign aide, Amanda Renteria, as well as copies of documents and information about whether the FBI investigated the alleged communication.

The letters, sent Thursday, are signed by Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley, Ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein, as well as Sens. Lindsey Graham and Sheldon White House, the chair and ranker on the subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism.

The senators question Open Society Foundations’ Leonard Benardo and its General Counsel Gail Scovell, as well as Renteria and Lynch, about a May 24 story from the Washington Post that reported Lynch assured Renteria that she would not let the FBI investigation into Clinton go too far.

An email reportedly recounting that alleged conversation and authored by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who served at the time as DNC chair, was allegedly hacked by Russia, though the FBI later discounted its reliability.

It’s interesting that the letter is signed by both Democrat and Republican Senators. Finally, we can get to the bottom of the AG Lynch’s corruption.
