Hillary's Emails: Loretta Lynch Is Being Put to the Test

Loretta Lynch, the successor as attorney general to the corrupt Eric Holder, came over to Justice from her previous position as US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn). Even though she was appointed by President Obama, it was at least hoped that she would bring true professional experience to the job. Now she is truly being put to the test, and that test centers around Hillary Clinton and her email scandal.

Two inspectors general have recommended that the Justice Department open an investigation into Ms Clinton for possible criminal wrongdoing in the email server matter.  There is ample evidence to at least merit an investigation. The inspectors have already uncovered messages that dealt with sensitive material as part of random sampling. That leads to suspicion that there could be thousands of similar messages.

Ms Clinton's denials and "explanations", far from clearing up the matter, have only cast more suspicion on her truthfulness. Her running correspondence with Sidney Blumenthal on matters relating to Libya have further clouded the issue. Blumenthal turned over his copies of correspondence with Ms Clinton-correspondence that she said she had turned over to State, but which State couldn't find.

The only proper course of action is to turn this over to the professional investigators of the FBI. Make no mistake, the field agents who would actually conduct the investigation will be subservient to their bosses in hqs, who will be subservient to the suits in the DOJ. Federal law enforcement agencies have sections in their respective hqs that oversee so-called "sensitive investigations" and this fully fits that description. If on the other hand, Ms Lynch comes out and makes an announcement that no investigation is deemed warranted, the claims of political cover-up will be prompt and loud.

Loretta Lynch is now squarely on the hot seat.

Sweet... now Barack Obama will have an easy excuse not to endorse or actively support her candidacy... and I bet she thought she had him in a corner.

I note that Chaka Fattah was just Federally indicted. Although most of his case must have been investigated under Holder (which may explain why the indictment just now came down), Lynch is in the chair now an necessarily made the ultimate decision. Maybe there is hope after all.

Upon further reflection, the indictment of a racist, radical, black Democratic Muslim member of Congress which was approved by a black Democratic AG (don't yet know if she is a racist or not) who works for a black racist pro-Muslim Democratic President may be a little more remarkable than I first thought.

Siarlys Jenkins said...

elwood you ignorant bigot, don't you know that Chakka Fattah is Baptist? He's been in congress a lot longer than Keith Ellison, the FIRST Muslim to serve in congress. And Fattah is so light skinneded his corruption is probably due to "admixture of white blood," to make a play on a hoary old line of commentary.

I'll give you one out of three on adjectives about the President of the United States of America.

Siarlys--looks like you got me for the first, and probably only/last, time. Perhaps this will help me to keep from making unwarranted assumptions and not be quite so quick to shoot from the lip in the future. I will, of course, ignore the unnecessary personal attack, seeing as it comes from a surly, un-American, old curmudgeon.

I think I actually used four adjectives on Obama, and Muslim is the only one I appear to have missed on Fattah.

Sorry I didn't catch the error myself. I could have corrected you in a more diplomatic way. Nevertheless, fattah is a jerk and possibly a crook as well.

Siarlys Jenkins said...

Jerk is in the eye of the beholder. Crook? You should withhold judgment, as you did for the police officer in Cincinnati.

Doesn't anyone hear remember the standard opening line of Saturday Night Live's "Point Counterpoint"?

elwood p suggins said...

Siarlys--why in the world would you start being diplomatic at this late date??

Siarlys Jenkins said...

Why not?
