WASHINGTON (PNN) - July 6, 2017 - Last night we asked a very simple question about why the Democrat National Committee has failed to cooperate with Russia investigators by handing over its infamous email server to either the FBI or Robert Mueller's team. After all, if Russia did "hack the election", as we've been told 24/7 by CNN going on 8 months now, then the evidence could very well be on that server. This prompted us to ask this very simple question.
If the DNC is in possession of actual tangible evidence that could prove once and for all that Russians hacked their servers and attempted to undermine the campaign of Hillary Clinton, why not share that evidence with investigators and enjoy the blissful vindication that its public release would provide?
We concluded by wondering whether the stonewalling from the DNC just might have something to do with this "purely coincidental' meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on a tarmac in Phoenix and/or Loretta Lynch's assurances to members of the Clinton campaign that the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton "wouldn’t go to far". If evidence of "Russian hacking" was on that server, would there also be evidence of Lynch's transgressions?
But we're not the only ones wondering whether there's more to the Lynch story. According to an article in the New York Post, some testimony that Lynch offered under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee last year could come back to haunt her. In that testimony, Lynch said that she had "not spoken to anyone on either the campaign or transition team or any staff members affiliated with them."
That statement seems to contradict reports that Lynch personally assured members of Clinton's campaign, potentially Amanda Renteria, that the FBI's investigation “wouldn’t go too far”.
Lynch’s lawyer says she is cooperating with committee investigators who are seeking answers to several questions, as well as relevant documents. Among other things, they want to know if she or any of her Justice Department staff “ever communicated with Amanda Renteria,” who headed Clinton’s political operations during the campaign. Renteria, who has been identified in the document as the senior Clinton campaign aide with whom Lynch privately communicated, has also been asked to testify.
Then there is that inconvenient Comey testimony in which the former FBI director says that he was instructed by Lynch to refer to the Clinton investigation as a "matter" rather than what it actually was, an investigation.
Now there are new developments that would suggest that Comey confronted Lynch about the alleged communication with Amanda Renteria and promptly asked to leave.
It will press her to explain the discrepancy - along with why she reportedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to leave her office when he confronted her with the document.
Then there is that meeting with Bill Clinton on that Phoenix tarmac that just happened to get noticed by a local reporter who just happened to be on scene.
After all the drama around the Clinton email investigation, which included multiple people being offered immunity and the revelation of what appeared to be numerous federal crimes committed by several people on Clinton's staff, wouldn't it be ironic if Obama's Attorney General was the only one to take the fall?
