As the Trump administration goes on, so does the Russian probe. There’s been a whole lot of speculation about Trump and Russia, despite the fact that the actual evidence about connections between Russia and high profile United States officials points in an entirely different direction than President Trump and his campaign.
Let’s be clear; the one thing that we all agree on right now is that if there is a connection between people involved in running this country and Russians, especially those who want to do wrong, that would be awful and deserving of punishment. I just want to clarify that with everyone I can, in case this turns out the way that conservatives think that it might.
So with the push to investigate President Trump and everyone he’s so much as bought a cup of coffee from, it kind of seems like all the chatter has the potential to be a cover for something. Of course, we don’t know just yet if they are covering anything, but we can say that if a former Obama administration higher up is the real culprit here, that might be bad for them.
The most likely Obama official to be implicated would be the beacon of moral integrity that Jeff Sessions replace, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. You remember her; she was the hard core Hillary supporter and the only person that James Comey actually implicated when he was in front of the Senate.
Via Breitbart News:
In the course of the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, serious questions have been raised about the possibility that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch may have engaged in wrongdoing with regard to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
There are three main issues surrounding Lynch’s possible misdeeds in the Clinton email probe.
One is Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting last June at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in which former President Bill Clinton, the husband of the FBI’s main subject in a criminal probe — Hillary’s email case — boarded the attorney general’s plane and reportedly stayed there for about thirty minutes for a private chat.
The second concern is Lynch’s reported directive for then-FBI Director James Comey to publically refer to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Clinton’s email as a “matter” instead of an investigation or a criminal probe. The language matched the specific rhetoric used at the time by Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, which referred to the criminal investigation as a “matter.”
The third issue relates to testimony and questions surrounding reports claiming that Comey was in possession of a document purportedly indicating that Lynch would ensure the Clinton email probe didn’t go too far.
Largely unreported by the news media, these questions surrounding Lynch are so serious that, in his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee this month, Comey conceded that the appointment of a special counsel in the Clinton email case would have been appropriate due to his concerns about Lynch.
There’s an excellent chance that Lynch will be under investigation no matter how much she tries to pile the blame onto other people:
Lynch is who Comey would typically have reported his findings about Hillary to, but since even the most unconcerned onlooker could see that her hand was firmly stuck in the cookie jar that was the Clinton campaign, he had to either; keep it quiet, go to Obama (also somewhat of a biased party) or go to the American people.
Honestly, if you’re supposed to be the head of the justice department, and even those under you can’t come to you with indiscretions because they know you’ll cover it up, you probably have a lot of skeletons in your closet that you don’t need falling out.
I don’t know what went on in the Obama White House that was less than above board, but it looks like there’s a whole lot of distracting and slight of hand to make sure we don’t go looking.
