Comey's "go-it-alone strategy" during the Clinton investigation came from his suspicions that Lynch and other Justice Department liberals might try to downplay the email probe and let Clinton off the legal hook, The New York Times reported Sunday.
In 2015, Lynch tried to soften the investigation and told Comey to use the word "matter" instead of "investigation" when discussing the investigation publicly.
She also wanted Comey not to use the words "traitor," "liar," "incompetent," "Russia," "hacked," "illegal server," and "Benghazi."
This was when Comey became a little suspicious. Lynch explained to him that using the word "investigation" would raise other [legitimate] questions and she argued that the department should maintain its policy of not confirming whether an investigation was ongoing.
After meeting with Comey, Lynch then met with Bill Clinton on June 16th along an airport tarmac at Phoenix airport. They met for a half hour, not for a romantic tryst, as is Bill's wont, but to discuss things out of the public eye, like their grandchildren and other private matters not for public consumption.
However, after the public found out about the private "chat" with the accused's husband, Lynch was called on to recuse herself from the Clinton investigation.
She refused. Evidently Lynch believed she could be of more help by not recusing herself, just in case she was needed to help Hillary wipe the server with a cloth.
Lynch was forced to say that she would accept any conclusions reached by federal authorities.
However, new problems floated to the surface like a hotel cesspool at a laxative festival.
A separate investigation into former New York congressman Anthony "Carlos Danger" Weiner's emails uncovered a slew of incriminating evidence against Clinton.
Weiner, who is married to Hillary Clinton's top aide and confidante, Huma Abedin, had emails on his computer that were between Huma and Hillary and some were highly classified State Department emails that should not have been there.
Luckily for Hillary, she is judgment-proof and could quite possibly get away with murder--some people believe she and Bill already have.
Comey wanted to alert Congress about what it found on the Weiner laptop, worried that if he didn't tell them, it would appear the FBI was withholding information before the election.
Lynch, who may have put a lot of money down on Hillary winning the election, didn't want Comey telling anything like that to Congress. But she was wise enough not to order him to not send it, just in case she got outed.
It would make her look dishonest.
