Comey makes admission about tarmac meeting between Clinton and Lynch


During former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday morning, he told what prompted him to move forward with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Committee Chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) asked Comey, “Was your decision influenced by the Attorney General’s tarmac meeting with the former president Bill Clinton?”

“Yes,” Comey responded. “That was the thing that capped it for me, that I had to do something separately, to protect the credibility of the investigation, which meant both the FBI and the Justice Department.”

He said there were other things that contributed to that, including the fact that Loretta Lynch asked him to call it a “matter” instead of an “investigation.”
