Will Lynch Rig the Clinton Investigation?

Pressure is mounting for Obama’s attorney general to step aside.

The FBI has officially announced that it is, in fact, investigating Hillary Clinton’s email subterfuge. Obviously, this creates more pressure on Clinton, just as voters head to the polls in New Hampshire. But it’s also causing the pressure to mount on Attorney General Loretta Lynch to recuse herself. Lynch’s Justice Department will be the arbiter of whether an FBI investigation yields an indictment, and anyone who doesn’t think Lynch is a partisan hack isn’t paying attention. A few months back, Barack Obama declared Hillary’s whole email kerfuffle was no big deal, saying, “I can tell you that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.” That’s a blatant lie given that a couple dozen of Clinton’s 1,500 classified emails can’t be released even in redacted form because the top secret information contained therein would be too damaging if made public. But given Obama’s declaration, will his attorney general effectively disagree and countenance an indictment? Many Republicans don’t think so and are calling for a special prosecutor. Part of the reason is Lynch’s own partisan history. She gave $10,700 to Democrats between 2004 and 2008, including $4,600 to Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. And she might have a continued job in a future Clinton administration. The bottom line is, never underestimate the willingness of Democrats to circle the wagons.
