Hillary Clinton was hit with a nuclear bomb on Friday when the FBI reopened their investigation into her use of a personal email server as Secretary of State. Since then, it has been revealed that Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her Department of Justice did everything they could to protect Clinton and stop the investigation against her.
Unfortunately for Lynch, however, this move has just come back to bite her in a big way.
National Review reported that Lynch’s Justice Department:
refused to authorize use of the grand jury to further the Clinton e-mails investigation, thus depriving the FBI of the power to compel testimony and the production of evidence by subpoena;
consulted closely with defense attorneys representing subjects of the investigation;
permitted Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson — the subordinates deputized by Mrs. Clinton to sort through her e-mails and destroy thousands of them — to represent Clinton as attorneys, despite the fact that they were subjects of the same investigation and had been granted immunity from prosecution (to say nothing of the ethical and legal prohibitions against such an arrangement);
drastically restricted the FBI’s questioning of Mills and other subjects of the investigation; and
struck the outrageous deals that gave Mills and Samuelson immunity from prosecution in exchange for providing the FBI with the laptops on which they reviewed Clinton’s four years of e-mails. That arrangement was outrageous for three reasons: 1) Mills and Samuelson should have been compelled to produce the computers by grand-jury subpoena with no immunity agreement; 2) Lynch’s Justice Department drastically restricted the FBI’s authority to examine the computers; and 3) Lynch’s Justice Department agreed that the FBI would destroy the computers following its very limited examination.
H/T: Political Reviewer
This has caused the public to turn on Lynch, and Republicans are now calling for her head.
