GOP rips into Lynch, who refuses to discuss details in Clinton case

by Julian Hattem - The Hill  |  published on July 12, 2016

Attorney General Loretta Lynch refused to discuss her decision not to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, despite intense criticism from House Republicans.

Days after FBI Director James Comey testified for nearly five hours in one House committee, Lynch took a markedly different tack before a separate panel.

She repeatedly refused to discuss details of the Clinton case, referred matters back to the FBI and at times appeared to go out of her way not even to say the former secretary of State’s name, instead referring obliquely to “the matter.”

    SOME AG…. UNABLE TO EVEN ANSWER A SIMPLE LEGAL QUESTION….Are we tired yet if having INCOMPETENTS Lying TOOLS nominated by equally LYING tools and Voted on by IDIOTS elected for LIFE????
    After the Grilling and having SEARS marks like a cheap BURGER on her DERRIERE this INCOMPETENT TOOL should be FIRED IMMEDIATELY!!! and had she any modicum of conscience she should QUIT!

  • Jose

    She knows to talk about or even hint at indictment is to die. Besides her silence has already been bought

  • CharlieSeattle

    Lol, GOP Kabuki Theatre. Fake outrage for the press as if anyone believes them.

    The e/GOP leaders, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnel, John Boehner and Eric Cantor have been complicit in enabling Obama’s treasonous agenda for almost a decade!

    Before the November 2014 election, Republican’s made us, their base, sweet sounding promises! Then they lied, betrayed and back stabbed their supporters after the election.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican to recently pass the Omnibus Spending Bill and F#%k over all Americans opposed to funding illegal aliens and muslim refugee resettlement.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to pass TPP and F#%k over American workers.

    The November election was a verdict ..AGAINST, Obama’s treasonous illegal alien amnesty plans ….by ….the …..American ….voters!

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to pass a funding bill that pays for Obama’s illegal executive action granting legal status to illegal aliens.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to do the same thing as disclosed in Gang Of Eight Senate Bill 744 and recently passed CRONYbus HR83.

    The last election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to NOT round up and deport ALL illegal aliens in the USA.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to increase H-1b visas as disclosed in Gang Of Eight Senate Bill 744.

    The election was …NOT, approval for Republican plans to NOT cancel the H-1b visa program and NOT deport ALL the foreigners here now taking American jobs.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican actions to gut EPA regulations and pollute with abandon.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republicans to allow corporations to avoid paying US taxes through tax inversion schemes.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for ALL Republicans to allow US Banks to once again allow “Derivatives provision” and CITIBANK language repealing part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law putting American taxpayers on the hook, …again, for their losses as recently passed in CRONYbus HR83.

    Remember, American Patriots STILL, vote in far greater numbers than Illegal Aliens and Billionaire PAC’$ …and they will vote for TRUMP!

    Oh, and speaking of …establishment republicans and illegal aliens. I was glad to see that Eric Cantor was up and around last fall tearfully pImping John Boehner’s career. Last I heard, he had his head over a toilet for 6 months after his loss.

    ………………….Trump 2016

    Might as well face it folks, The political establishments have taken complete control over us. They are above the law and there is not one damn thing we can do about it. Hillary is a criminal and it doesn’t matter to career politicians. Look at what Holder got away with. He even said he didn’t have to enforce any law he didn’t agree with, and nothing was ever done to him. Lynch has basically handed her duties over to the FBI. It is her responsibility to have Clinton tried. I am greatly disappointed in the FBI. They said she broke the law, but didn’t mean to. What kind of sh_t is that? The law says gross negligence not intent. The FBI just rewrote a law and not one damn law maker says anything about that. These people don’t care about anything except money and how much power they can get. We will soon be a government Karl Marx would have loved.

      To late if Marx was alive he would saying its about time. Since the liberals have taken power and the spineless rinos have helped this is not a republic any longer. We are very close to socialism and most people can’t even see it or they want it. The new liberal platform on abortion, wages, and prosecuting people for not agreeing with global warming is as much socialist as any socialist country. This platform to stop free speech or go to jail and taxpayers are to pay for abortions any where we’ll need I say more. What’s next people well how about guns being taken away. Obama and his minions are stuck on stupid every time something happens. Instead of trying to unite the country to mourn with the families these idiots make speeches on gun Control and have sit ins in Congress. Every one of them should be ashamed. The families of the slain should be very upset that the deaths of their loved ones are political.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    well you know every time they open there mouth they are lying , and now congress is going after hillary for lying under oath , even lynch ain’t stupid enough to do that , so best thing to do is just keep your mouth shut , and if your to stupid to know the only reason they ain’t bringing charges is because oboma says so and to protect his black ass

  • justinwachin

    There should be no surprises about the Lynch performance. It’s likely the whole Clinton/Lynch coincidental meeting was cleverly planned as a way to allow Hillary to get off the hook without it blowing up on the Obama administration. As an attorney Ms. Lynch knows it is better to say nothing than to open your mouth and give your opponents the cord needed to hang you.

    We got played. If we could trace the reporter’s source it would likely lead to either the Obama administration or the Hillary Clinton campaign. With Clinton’s there are no true coincidences. After seeing how this one played out it is likely that it went off as planned.

    • Cawaynus

      I agree with you justinwachin. However, I am thinking it is possible that FBI Director Comey may have done the only thing that could bring Hillary down, and it may turn out to be a brilliant move and planning by the FBI. Comey knew that even if Lynch indicted Hillary, and even if they found her guilty, Obama would simply pardon her and himself as well, because knowing the crimes of Hillary and not reporting those crimes, would make Obama as guilty as Hillary. Comey knew that would never work out, and in addition he would be out of a job, possibly his life, and the lives of his wife and kids/grandkids. By not indicting Hillary, and with no statute of limitations on her crimes, (Comey clearly stated she committed those crimes), paves the way for a President Trump to replace Lynch with his own Attorney General, and then indict Hillary, for her crimes. I believe what Comey and the FBI did was give us a chance to bring justice to Hillary, and possibly Obama and a few dozen others that knew Hillary was violating our security laws. The only hitch, is that Trump must win the election, or they will all go free! There are hundreds of reasons for having Trump win this coming election. (Assuming we still have an election after Obama declares Martial law and suspends future elections!)

    Watching the Clinton/Obama/Clinton escapades makes me yearn for the days of Tricky Dick.



  • Glenn

    Another obstructionist who basically pleads the fifth. Ok you Representatives, just you lay over and wave your feet and arms. Are you going to bring a lawsuit to this person to? LOL. Just another day of our government dodging the bullet. But you know, Hillary did not intentionally break the law.

    • original ancestry

      She knowingly broke the law and still is. There is so much law breaking going on we the people can unite and force them out if need be. It’s called treason.

        Breaking the law ( or rewriting it) she learned from oDUMBO, HOLDER and SHIL _LIAR -RY…….all PROGRESSIVE STUCK on STUPID MORONS! Still claiming that ” We are a Nation of Laws” but not finishing the sentence ” LAWS OF THE BANANA REPUBLIC WE HAVE CREATED”

  • uhptony

    She should be impeached immediately! It is obvious that she is bought and paid for.

    • Front Sight

      How can she be impeached. She is a “former” Secretary of State, Senator, and First Lady. You can’t impeach somebody who doesn’t hold office.

      • RB

        I think that uhptony probably was referring to Lynch when he recommended impeachment.

      • uhptony

        I was not referring to Hitlary I was referring to bought and paid for Lynch.

      • Worried Vet

        Lynch is who can be impeached.
