(CNSNews.com) – Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he wants to hear former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s side of the story before calling for an investigation into whether she tried to downplay the seriousness of Hillary Clinton’s email practices.
“Well, before I say anything further on this, I want to hear what Loretta Lynch’s side of the story is. I haven’t heard that yet,” Schumer told a press conference on Tuesday.
Former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate intelligence committee on June 8 that Lynch told him to call the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails a “matter,” not an investigation.
Comey said Lynch’s request for him to use the same language that the Clinton campaign was using “gave me a queasy feeling.”
On Sunday, CNN’s “State of the Union” asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) if Lynch was “giving cover to the Clinton campaign.”
“I can’t answer that,” Feinstein said. “I would have a queasy feeling, too, though, to be candid with you. I think we need to know more about that. And there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”
