Comey's Testimony Suggests Bill Clinton May Have Cost Hillary the Election

  • Feinstein calls for investigation of'all matters related to obstruction of justice

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi downplayed former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the nation's top cop at the time, downplaying Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information through the use of a private email server. "That was straight off the Clinton campaign points to always refer to it as a matter and not an investigation". I said this isn't a hill worth dying on.

"This is about a sitting president and why he fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director in a historic move, and was that connected to the Russians", the Virginia Democrat and former vice presidential candidate told CNN "New Day" anchor Alisyn Camerota.

Lynch told Comey to call the investigation a "matter" rather than an "investigation", Comey said.

"That was the thing that capped it for me", Comey said.

Speaking for almost six minutes, McCain asked why Comey was able to state that the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server did not need to be pursued but that he could not say the same of the probe into President Donald Trump's administration. "You know, I thought that was an interesting piece of testimony. yesterday's testimony laid out disturbing pieces of evidence about what that intent was".

Republican Senator John Cornyn, grilling Mr Comey, said it appeared he believed Ms Lynch "had an appearance of a conflict of interest on the Clinton e-mail investigation".

"The Clinton investigation was a completed investigation that the FBI had been deeply involved in, so I had an opportunity to understand all the facts and apply those facts against the law as I understood them", Comey explained to McCain. "I had to do something separately to protect the credibility of the investigation for the FBI and Justice Department". However, Kaine said that Comey did take action. "This is about a sitting president and why he fired the FBI director in a historic move and was that connected, as he suggested, to the Russians and his office the next day with his desire to undermine the Russia investigation".

The meeting between the former attorney general and the former president, according to Comey, helped him make his decision "in an ultimately conclusive way".
