Lynch needs to go under oath Lindsey Graham says

Top Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says that former Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch should testify before the Senate now that the fired FBI Director James Comey called into question over how she handled the Hillary Clinton email probe. (Hint: politically.)

"I want to hear from Loretta Lynch," Graham said.

Comey claimed during the Senate committee hearing that when he was investigating Hillary Clinton's illegal private email server, Lynch directed him not to use the term "investigation" but instead call the probe a "matter."

Comey fluttered his eyes during the Senate hearing saying that Lynch's words made him feel "queasy" and nearly gave him the vapors as he took out a huge Japanese hand fan and proceeded to fan himself.

Comey also said that Lynch's directive, along with her unusual [aka sleazy] tarmac meeting in Arizona with Hillary's cheating husband Bill, led Comey to get all flustered and upset, resulting of him falling into a major dither as he asked his heart to be still, which then caused him to make his independent political announcement regarding the email probe last July. "Why, I nearly swooned," Comey said, hand fan going 100 miles an hour.

It ended with Hillary getting off the hook in spite of a clear violation of the Espionage Act. Comey said that no prosecutor would go forward in this case because Hillary didn't mean it.

Graham was asked on CBS News' "Face the Nation" whether he wants Lynch to appear before the judiciary committee on which he sits. He said, "Absolutely."

He is not alone as several GOPers are interested in what she has to say.

Rep. Peter King, (R-NY) is a member of the House Intelligence Committee and he would like to see if Comey kept notes on his conversations with Lynch or if he only did it with Trump because he knew Trump wouldn't stand for a political hack heading up the FBI.

The intelligence committee has asked for Comey's notes or memos he may have and he has bragged that he took extensive notes regarding the conversations he had with President Trump.

But Lynch? Maybe not.

Comey said Lynch's tarmac meeting with Cigar Bill was a "deciding factor" in his decision to update the public on the Clinton probe and protect the bureau's reputation.

"There were other things, significant items," he said softly, citing how "the attorney general directed me not to call it an investigation and call it a matter--which confused me" [and literally gave him gas].

Senate Minority Leader Chuck "Nostrils" Schumer (D-NY) said that he hasn't heard Lynch's side of the story and can't say "whether it rises to the level that she should come and testify."

If we were talking about, say, Ivanka Trump, Schumer would have said, in that wheezy annoying voice, "We need to get to the bottom of this matter and Ms. Trump-Kushner needs to get herself in here and speak under oath."
