Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch says fired FBI Director James Comey didn’t raise any concerns when she directed him in 2015 to label the bureau’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server a “matter” as opposed to an “investigation.”
But, nearly two years later, Comey gave a different recollection of events during testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, telling lawmakers that Lynch’s directive “confused and concerned” him.
Lynch drew attention to Comey’s apparent conflicting remarks during an NBC News interview set to air in full Monday night.
“It was a meeting like any other that we had had where we talked about the issues. We had a full and open discussion about it and concerns were not raised,” Lynch said.
I find that unlikely in the extreme.
