Did Lynch coordinate with Comey?

The HillFormer Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew well in advance of FBI Director James Comey's 2016 press conference that he would recommend against charging Hillary Clinton, according to information turned over to the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Friday.

The revelation was included in 384 pages of text messages exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it significantly diminishes the credibility of Lynch's earlier commitment to accept Comey's recommendation — a commitment she made under the pretense that the two were not coordinating with each other.

And it gets worse. Comey and Lynch reportedly knew that Clinton would never face charges even before the FBI conducted its three-hour interview with Clinton, which was supposedly meant to gather more information into her mishandling of classified information.

Of course they were coordinating. You think Hillary would go anywhere near an FBI interview where the outcome wasn't preordained in her favor? That's exactly what was discussed at that tarmac meeting. Bill Clinton got assurances from AG Lynch that his wife, Hillary Clinton, would be interviewed as a mere formality and no charges would result. No charges on the email, no charges for lying to the FBI during the interview like Michael Flynn.
