Feinstein: “Congress Should Investigate If Lynch Pressured Comey To Cover For Hillary Clinton”
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Jun 11 2017

In a surprisingly non-partisan take by Dianne Feinstein, the top Demagog on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the California senator said that Congress should investigate whether, as we discussed last Thursday, then-AG Loretta Lynch pressured Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton (by downgrading or halting the hillary emails investigation – RB). Feinstein told Briana Keilar on CNN State of the Union:

I think we need to more about that, and there’s only one way to know about it and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.

As we noted last Thursday, Comey testified last Thursday that it gave him a “queasy” feeling after Lynch asked him to characterize his probe into Clinton’s emails as a “matter,” rather than an investigation. He told the Senate Intelligence Committee that such a request would match the wording of Clinton’s campaign.  Feinstein said:

I would have a queasy feeling too, though, to be candid with you. An investigation separate from the ongoing one into Russian interference is needed. I don’t think we should mix the two.

That said, when asked who do you believe, Trump or Comey, Feinstein said:

At this point, the FBI director.

Regarding Pres Trump’s acions, Feinstein said:

I don’t know whether it’s obstruction of justice. I don’t intend to draw any conclusions until investigations are finished.

Trump on Friday denied that he asked Comey to let go of his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and that he requested Comey pledge his loyalty to him prior to Comey’s dismissal.  The president added that he is 100% willing to testify about his interactions with Comey under oath, while playing down reporters’ inquiries zas to whether he did in fact have “tapes” of his conversation with Comey.
