Reps. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the Oversight panel, and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., head of the Judiciary Committee, said in a letter that "evidence collected by the FBI during its investigation of Secretary Clinton's use of a personal email system appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony". According to the New York Post, FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton's use of an unsecured, private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State were required to sign unprecedented non-disclosure agreements prohibiting them from disclosing anything about their investigation of Hillary.
With regard to Democratic Party talking points - for example, that the FBI's Comey will rescind his statements about Clinton's suspected criminal actions - former Attorney General Michael Mukasey said, "I was particularly distressed to hear that he [Director Comey] said there was no intention to violate the law when the laws involved don't require an intention to violate the law".
Lynch did say, in response to questioning from Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, that she had never discussed Clintons email practices with either Hillary or Bill Clinton, and she also said she had not discussed with either of them a position in the Hillary Clinton administration.
For production of shock and disbelief, the surprise announcement by FBI Director James Comey that he would not recommend criminal prosecution of Hillary Clinton rivals the decision of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts' upholding Obamacare as constitutional.
We should then ask Mr. Comey, "If it was someone else under the above exact situation noted above, how would you respond?"
"The matter was handled like any other matter", she said.
Democrats have cried foul, saying the Republican lawmakers are interested only in embarrassing Clinton and keeping the email issue alive as the likely Democratic nominee for president vies for the White House. Her lack of sophistication undercut his ability to make that case, he said. Comey said that a classification expert would not regard those emails as classified.
"You are in charge of the Department of Justice. It was a unanimous recommendation", said Lynch.
Republicans were stunned that Ms. Lynch refused to answer questions.
She replied: "Every case stands on its own separate facts".
