REPORT: Loretta Lynch Told Debbie Wasserman Schultz She Would Make FBI Hillary Probe ‘Go Away’

(THE HILL) — Top senators on the Judiciary Committee are pressing former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to respond to allegations that she tried to interfere with the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) sent Lynch a letter this week as part of the committee’s investigation into the Department of Justice under both the Trump and Obama administrations.

The four senators point to a pair of articles alleging that Lynch wouldn’t let the FBI’s investigation “go too far,” and want the former attorney general to respond by early next month so they can “assess the situation.”

The New York Times reported in April that the FBI had received a slate of documents hacked from Russian networks, including one from a Democratic operative who appeared confident that Lynch would keep the FBI probe reined in.

 The Washington Post reported last month that a document, purportedly created by Russian intelligence, showed Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), telling a Clinton campaign operative that Lynch had assured her she would make the FBI probe go away.
“Did anyone from the FBI ever discuss or otherwise mention to you emails, memos, or reports such as those described in these media reports?” the senators ask in their letter to Lynch.
