Attorney General Loretta Lynch has pushed the political correct Obama agenda to the extreme and now will be responsible for letting Hillary Clinton off the hook for her crimes against America. This was all predictable and while Loretta Lynch is ultimately responsible there are ten GOP senators who helped it happen.
The ten Republican senators broke ranks and sided with Democrats to get Lynch over the 50-vote threshold: Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Ron Johnson (Wis.) and Mitch McConnell (Ky.).
What has America received in return for this confirmation?
AG Loretta Lynch: Orlando gunman’s motive may never be known.
AG Loretta Lynch: “Partial transcripts” of Orlando 911 calls will have references to Islamic terrorism removed.
AG Loretta Lynch to Prosecute ‘Anti-Muslim Speech’:
She has even refused to recuse herself in an investigation where she clearly is required by ethics regulations to recuse herself after her meeting with former president Bill Clinton.
Meeting with the husband of former Secretary of State Clinton while overseeing the investigation into her private e-mail server and possible civil and criminal violations dealing with mishandling classified emails violates numerous ethics rules.
5 C.F.R. § 2635.101(b)(8) states, “Employees shall act impartially and not give preferential treatment to any private organization or individual.
5 C.F.R. § 2635.101(b)(14) states, “Employees shall endeavor to avoid any actions creating the appearance that they are violating the law or the ethical standards set forth in this part.”
And finally, 28 C.F.R. § 45.2 is the regulation governing when a Department of Justice attorney must be disqualified from a criminal investigation because of a personal or political relationship. Under this rule, Attorney General Lynch is prohibited from participating in a criminal investigation or prosecution if she has a “personal or political relationship” with “[a]ny person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution,” or any person or organization which she “knows has a specific and substantial interest that would be directly affected by the outcome of the investigation or prosecution.”
The Attorney General is required by DOJ ethics regulations to avoid even the “appearance” of impropriety. Attorney General Lynch’s clear conflict of interest far exceeds this baseline ethical standard.
Misconduct. Dishonesty. Impropriety. No matter what word you choose, Attorney General Lynch’s secret meeting with former President Bill Clinton was flat-out wrong. She’s clearly disqualified from participating in the investigations into former Secretary of State Clinton’s private email server.
And she must resign.
I’m leading our senior litigation team preparing to file legal demands and ethics complaints. If the DOJ doesn’t respond and she doesn’t resign, we’ll be back in federal court. We’re already suing the State Department over its lies about the Iran deal. Join us in ending the Obama Administration’s virus of deception. If left unchecked, this virus is a threat to our democracy.
Have you heard any GOP senators speaking up and calling for AG Lynch to recuse herself or resign after all of these incredulous actions? The members of Congress that have been aiding and abetting this administration at every turn must be remembered for their vote and their silence.
