Attorney General Loretta Lynch demonstrated that she knows how to dodge questions.
The public deserves to know how Lynch reached a decision not to ask for a grand jury to examine Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified emails. This isn't some personal matter that's none of our business. The attorney general treated it that way, however:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch repeatedly dodged and deflected specific questions Tuesday on the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email use, referring Republicans to the FBI director instead of answering them herself – and leading to a heated exchange with top Republican Jason Chaffetz.
At the end of the first round of questioning before the House Judiciary Committee, Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked about the legality of sharing classified information outside the proper channels and other issues.
Lynch said it would be unfair to give a blanket answer.
“I think you’re sending a terrible message to the world,” Chaffetz said. “The lack of clarity that you give to this body … is pretty stunning.”
And so it went.
The Fox report on Lynch's testimony is here.
Meanwhile, New York Democrat Rep. Jerome Nadler, who used his time to make a speech on gun control, belittled Republicans for even caring about such trivia as Hillary Clinton's or disgraced former IRS agent Lois Lerner's emails.
Lerner's emails might shed light on the process of targeting Americans for their political opinions. Clinton's concern national security and the character of the woman who wants to be our next president.
I guess we should just shut up and pay taxes.
