During the much-anticipated Senate hearing Thursday morning, former FBI Director James Comey finally revealed evidence of massive political interference in the election — just not by the Trump administration.
The recently fired Comey revealed that Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch ordered him to downplay the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private server to maintain classified emails.
Comey stated to the Senate Intelligence Committee that Lynch directed him “not to call [the Hillary Clinton email investigation] an investigation, but to call it a “matter.”
“And that confused me and concerned me,” Comey said.

The former FBI director’s revelation makes clear that, in the heat of a presidential campaign, the sitting president’s attorney general attempted to interfere with an investigation into the Democratic Party’s candidate for president of the United States.
Comey added that a meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch forced him to hold a press conference to discuss the FBI’s investigation into the former secretary of state.
Lynch, as the head of the Justice Department, clandestinely met with Bill Clinton in late June 2016 on an airport tarmac. Comey said the alleged collusion led him “in an ultimately conclusive way” to hold a press conference to “separate” the investigation from A.G. Lynch’s pressure.
