Senate Starts Probe Into Loretta Lynch’s Collusion with The Clintons

Senate Judiciary Committee leaders have sent letters to former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and others asking for information about allegations of political interference in the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

The letters from Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Ranking Member Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., come as the panel carries on its broad investigation into last month’s abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey.

In addition to Lynch, the four senators sent letters to Leonard Benardo of the Open Society Foundations and the group’s general counsel Gail Scovell, as well as Clinton campaign staffer Amanda Renteria.

The New York Times reported in April that the FBI obtained hacked documents, including one written by a “Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far.”
