Comey: Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton meeting was Hillary investigation turning point

Comey: Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton meeting was Hillary investigation turning point – Business Insider

“During testimony on Capitol Hill before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey said there were “a number of things” that caused him to “worry” that Department of Justice leadership “could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system.”

The “capper,” he said, was the tarmac meeting between Lynch and Clinton.

“I’m not picking on the attorney general, Loretta Lynch, who I like very much, but her meeting with President Clinton on that airplane was the capper for me,” he said. “And I then said, ‘You know what? The department cannot, by itself, credibly end this.'””
