Judge Nap: Comey Laid Out Case for 'Misconduct in Office' Against Loretta Lynch
Will there be an investigation of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch?
Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in this morning, saying Lynch has a "lot of explaining to do" following former FBI Director James Comey's bombshell testimony to the Senate.
Leading Senate Democrat Dianne Feinstein (CA) said last week that the Judiciary Committee should look into why Lynch instructed Comey to refer to the Hillary Clinton email probe as a "matter," not an investigation.
Comey told the Senate that the directive "concerned" him because it was consistent with the Clinton campaign inaccurately calling the investigation a "security review."
"Comey laid out a case for misconduct in office for Loretta Lynch," said Napolitano, adding that attorneys general usually do not choose to investigate their predecessors.
He said a Senate investigation might happen, but he believes Comey laid out enough evidence to trigger an FBI investigation.
"Did their former boss use the Department of Justice for political purposes? Did she tailor law enforcement decisions to help the Obama White House and Mrs. Clinton's campaign?" the judge asked.
He said Lynch must still explain why she met with former President Bill Clinton at an airport last summer while both he and the former secretary of state were being investigated by the FBI.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said last week Republicans should issue subpoenas to Lynch and President Clinton over the meeting.
