I cannot quite get a hold on this story with so many competing narratives and to be honest I have been fixated on the British election
CLINTON INDICTMENTS INEVITABLE AFTER JAMES COMEY ADMITS AG LYNCH PROTECTED HILLARY DURING FBI PROBE
Comey Testifies AG Lynch 'Pressured' Him On Clinton Probe: "It Gave Me A Queasy Feeling"
8 June, 2017
In perhaps the most stunning section of former FBI Director Comey's testimony today, he detailed his interaction with then Attorney General Loretta Lynch about his specific language about the Clinton Email "investigation."
LANKFORD: Then you made a comment earlier a the attorney general, the previous attorney general asking you about the investigation on the Clinton e-mails saying you were asked to not call it an investigation anymore. But call it a matter. You said that confused you. You can give us additional details on that?
COMEY: Well, it concerned me because we were at the point where we refused to confirm the existence as we typically do of an investigation for months. And was getting to a place where that looked silly because the campaigns we're talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work. The Clinton campaign at the time was using all kinds of euphemisms, security matters, things like that for what was going on.
We were getting to a place where the attorney general and I were both going to testify and talk publicly about it I wanted to know was she going to authorize us to confirm we have an investigation. She said yes, don't call it that, call it a matter. I said why would I do that? She said, just call it a matter. You look back in hindsight, if I looked back and said this isn't a hill worth dying on so I just said the press is going to completely ignore it. That's what happened when I said we opened a matter.
They all reported the FBI has an investigation open. So that concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI's work and that's concerning.
LANKFORD: You gave impression that the campaign was somehow using the language as the FBI because you were handed the campaign language?
COMEY: I don't know whether it was intentional or not but it gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way it was describing that. It was inaccurate. We had an investigation open for the federal bureau of investigation, we had an investigation open at the time. That gave me a queasy feeling.
Comey said that this troubled him greatly and convinced him, “I have to step away from the department if we’re too close this case credibly.”
1) The utter politicization of the Justice Department (from the top-down) under Obama, has now been exposed as "fact" if Comey is to be believed.
2) Why did Comey think that a Clinton "Hill" was not worth dying on, but a Trump "Hill" was?
3) Why didn't Comey "memorialize" this conversation in one of his memos at the time... as he said he did immediately after his Trump conversation?
4) So the only official to "pressure" Comey during his tenure was Loretta Lynch?
5) What would happen if AG Sessions colluded with the FBI Director to alter their statements about a Trump investigation for political reasons?
