When the AG Pushes the FBI to Get Its Message Straight...

...we are swimming in dangerous waters.  

I have been unable to think of any reason beyond political assistance to the Attorney General's preferred candidate that Loretta Lynch told the head of the FBI not to call the Bureau's email investigation what is was  --  an investigation.


This was partisan behavior by the sitting head of the Justice Department intended to influence the outcome of the presidential election.  Oddly, I haven't heard any of those currently outraged say beans about it.

I might add that it's not clear whether Ms. Lynch gave this instruction before or after her closeted, tarmac meeting with her candidate's wealthy and well-connected spouse.  I haven't heard too much about that, either.  I wonder how long I should wait for a five-part series in the New York Times.

For the record, I find this outrageous, and it has led me to think former AG Lynch was as much to blame for the tarmac meeting as former Prez Clinton.

Mr. Comey and All the President's Lies - The New York Times
15 hours ago - “I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting,” he said. ... James Comey and the Predator in Chief JUNE 8, 2017 ...

~ Well, though selectively paranoid and judgment-challenged --
and indeed guilty of a leak through the NY Slimes --
even Comey saw clear to admit yesterday in Senate testimony:

Comey said stories about Russia that are based on classified leaks
have been a persistent problem for the FBI … “There have been
many, many stories based on — well, lots of stuff, but about
Russia that are dead wrong,” Comey said.

“Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts
with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election,
according to four current and former American officials,”
the NY Times
wrote.
Cotton asked Comey if that story was “almost entirely wrong,” and
Comey said that it was.

NSA Leak Suspect Denied Bail:

Comey: “My judgment was I needed to get that out into the public square.
And so I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a
reporter. Didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons. But I asked him to.
Because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special
counsel.”

Kasowitz: “Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President,”

~ Powerful Leakers are un-American scumbags, and
the FBI director has devolved into a partisan dupe.
