IG Calls Lack Of Communication Between Comey And Lynch 'Troubling'

By Nicole Lafond | June 14, 2018 11:20 am

The Justice Department inspector general found a “troubling” lack of “substantive communication” between former FBI director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch ahead of Comey’s decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails just before the 2016 election, according to Bloomberg.

In an excerpt of the highly anticipated DOJ inspector general, published by Bloomberg, that looks at the FBI’s activity ahead of the 2016 election, DOJ IG Micheal Horowitz said he found the lack of communication between the two parties to be “extraordinary.”

“We found it extraordinary that, in advance of two such consequential decisions, the FBI director decided that the best course of conduct was to not speak directly and substantively with the attorney general about how best to navigate those decisions,” Horowitz said.

Comey announced he had closed the Clinton probe in July 2016 and then reopened it in October of that year, a move Democrats claim cost them the election.

1. Interesting

My recollection is that the Republicans considered any contact between the AG and Comey as political pressure.

2. Except

If he had spoken to her, the wailing banshees would scream for her head for interfering with the process on behalf of Obama.

3. So, turn over the Presidency to the rightful winner of the

popular vote NOW, I would say, would be some justice.
