Among other revelations regarding Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the involvement of Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch was the info that Lynch assured a Hillary Clinton campaign staffer that the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email server wouldn’t “go too far.” The former Attorney General denied those allegations.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is investigating whether Lynch attempted to interfere with the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email server after a Russian intelligence memo surfaced, alleging that Lynch communicated with Clinton staffer Amanda Renteria about the probe.
“Ms. Lynch does not know Ms. Renteria, did not discuss the Clinton email investigation with Ms. Renteria, and did not communicate to Ms. Renteria, either in words or in substance, that ‘she would not let the FBI investigation into Clinton go too far,'” Lynch’s lawyer said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Likewise, to the best of her knowledge and recollection, neither Ms. Lynch nor any representative of the Office of the Attorney General discussed the Clinton email investigation with Ms. Renteria, Representative [Debbie] Wasserman Schultz or her staff, or any DNC official,” the letter continued.
Back in April, the New York Times first reported about the existence of the Russian intelligence memo, which was obtained by the FBI.
Later in May, the Washington Post reported on the details of the document, which referenced an email former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent to Leonard Benardo of the Open Society Foundations.
According to the memo, the email indicated Lynch had assured Renteria that “she would not let the FBI investigation into Clinton go too far,” reports Washington Examiner.
Lynch, Renteria, and Benardo all received letters from leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee last month, in which they were being asked about the allegations made in the Russian memo.
Lynch’s lawyer, Robert Raben said the former Attorney General “intends to cooperate fully” with the Judiciary Committee’s investigation.
