Obama Justice Department, Lynch opposed Comey informing Congress of investigation

The Obama Justice Department, led by Loretta Lynch, opposed FBI director James Comey's decision to inform Congress of his reopening the investigation of Hillary's email scandal on the basis that the Justice Department doesn't take steps to influence an election.  This is the same Loretta Lynch who met with Bill Clinton the day before Hillary was questioned by the FBI, and then the FBI decided not to recommend indicting Hillary four days later.  Obama and Michelle Obama have been campaigning every day to help Hillary and viciously attack Trump.  Talk about "not taking steps" to influence an investigation.

Comey must have concluded that the new emails and documents provide substantial evidence of Hillary's guilt; otherwise, he would not have reopened the investigation ten days before the elections.  Since Comey gave Hillary the benefit of the doubt in July, after Lynch's meeting with Bill Clinton, we can assume that he was predisposed to again give Hillary the benefit of the doubt.  But he could not because of the contents of the emails.

The Washington Post reported on October 29, 2016:

"Senior Justice Department officials warned the FBI that Director James B. Comey's decision to notify Congress about renewing the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server was not consistent with long-standing practices of the department, according to officials familiar with the discussions.

Comey told Justice officials that he intended to inform lawmakers of newly discovered emails. These officials told him the department's position "that we don't comment on an ongoing investigation. And we don't take steps that will be viewed as influencing an election," said one Justice official who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the high-level conversations.

"Director Comey understood our position. He heard it from Justice leadership," said the official. "It was conveyed to the FBI, and Comey made an independent decision to alert the Hill. He is operating independently of the Justice Department. And he knows it.

The Obama Justice Department warned Comey?   Comey heard it from Justice leadership?  In plain English, this means Loretta Lynch.  And in even more plain English, this means Obama, because Lynch would not warn Comey or oppose his decision without the approval of Obama.

It is beyond belief that the Obama Justice Department would interfere with an FBI decision on an important issue such as this.  But this is the Obama Justice Department and Hillary, so all the traditional rules and traditions are gone.

Obama did not want this investigation, but since Comey decided to investigate, then Obama wanted it quiet so we would not know before the election.  He knew that this would hurt Hillary in her bid to win his third term.  But if it was kept quiet until after the election then and Hillary won, then Obama and Hillary would say it was an FBI decision and  blame Comey for not informing Congress and the public.

Comey did not play ball with Obama and Hillary this time.  So now look for the Clinton Smear Machine to attack Comey as the messenger of Hillary's scandal.
