Bongino: Lynch, Comey Could Face Obstruction Charges for Handling of Clinton Email Probe
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey could face potential obstruction of justice charges over their handling of the Clinton email investigation, according to Dan Bongino.
Lynch spoke to "NBC Nightly News" host Lester Holt in an interview that will air Monday about a variety of topics, including her infamous 2016 tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton, which occurred amid the Hillary Clinton probe.
In two weeks, Comey will release a book about the Clinton investigation, as well as allegations of ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
"Loretta Lynch should be talking to a lawyer and so should Jim Comey," Bongino said on "Fox & Friends" on Monday. "They shouldn't be talking to the American public about book sales and interviews."
He said both could have "very serious criminal liability" for possibly interfering in the probe into Clinton's private email server and her mishandling of classified information.
He said he would like to ask Lynch why she asked Comey to refer to the investigation as a "matter," what she spoke about with Bill Clinton on the tarmac and how she authenticated the information in the infamous anti-Trump dossier.
"What did she do, what did she know and when did she know it?" Bongino said. "She may be in real trouble here."
He noted that what Lynch says in her "NBC News" interview and what Comey writes in his book are public statements that could be used against them if they tell a different story under oath in the future.
