When I mention Eric Holder, everyone immediately goes, “Oh, yeah, Black Panther case not prosecuted,” or “Fast and Furious.”
When I mention Loretta Lynch, everyone immediately goes, “Oh, yeah, tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton.”
Yet, I’ll bet no one reacts when I say Michael Mukasey.
If you weren’t aware, he was the Attorney General under George W. Bush, from 2007-2009.
Why is it you never heard of him? Well, maybe that’s because he never participated in any shady dealings or colluded with campaigns. Hence, no hot headlines.
That is, until he dropped one giant bombshell on America that essentially proves Hillary Clinton was trying to get the FBI to side with her on a certain “matter.”
A former attorney general under President George W. Bush said Friday that ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch made the Department of Justice ‘an arm of the Clinton campaign’ in her directives to then-FBI Director James Comey about how to characterize the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server while was secretary of state.
During his testimony Thursday to the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey said Lynch ordered him to call the probe a ‘matter’ instead of an investigation.
Michael Mukasey, who was attorney general form 2007-2009, said that action amounted to collusion between the Obama-era Justice Department and the Clinton campaign.
‘What makes it egregious is the fact — and I think it’s obvious that it is a fact — that the attorney general of the United States was adjusting the way the department talked about its business so as to coincide with the way the Clinton campaign talked about that business,’ Mukasey said in an interview with Newsmax.
‘In other words, it made the Department of Justice essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign,’ he said.
‘That is a betrayal of the department and of its independence to illustrate that clearly that the attorney general was essentially in the tank for Secretary Clinton.’”
Mukasey contends that this was the real obstruction of justice, not some concocted fantasy about the Russians and collusion.
If the current Attorney General Jeff Sessions ever has a choice to follow his immediate predecessors, let’s hope he has more sense than the last two.
