Fired FBI Director James Comey recently testified that Lynch sought to downplay the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server by asking him to refer to it as a "matter," not an investigation. The mainstream media has largely ignored the Lynch story, while they´ve continued to extensively report on possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

In 2016, reports about Sen.

No, they’re not able to show text messages that might get them off the hook. No, they can’t cross'examine their accuser. No, they don’t have the right to a fair trial.
