The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to hear from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, after ousted FBI Director James Comey implied she interfered in the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The existence of the Russian intelligence memo was first disclosed in April by The New York Times, which said it played a role in Comey's decision previous year to bypass the normal chain of command and make a public announcement that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not recommending criminal charges against Clinton. Lynch declined to comment at the time. The probe comes after former FBI Director James Comey admitted Lynch directed him to call the probe a "matter," not an investigation, as People's Pundit Daily first reported on May 11.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio , who was played a key role in pushing for Trump's changes, was expected to attend along with U.S. For example, the Cuban government could disguise the properties of GAESA under the facade of new entities.

President Donald Trump fired Comey on May 9, citing a memo by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation director of mishandling the Clinton email probe, among other things. Chairman Grassley then requested a copy of the document from the Justice Department, which has failed to respond.

Another matter of interest to the senators was a March 24 article in the Washington Post, which suggested that Comey had acted based on "a Russian intelligence document" that alleged Lynch had "privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the email investigation would not push too deeply into the matter". A month later, The Washington Post reported similar facts and provided further details about individuals involved in these communications. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who served at the time as DNC chair, was allegedly hacked by Russian Federation, though the Federal Bureau of Investigation later discounted its reliability. According to the Post report, the document - reportedly central to Comey's actions on the Clinton e-mail probe - was assessed by Comey's own Federal Bureau of Investigation to be unreliable and possibly fake. Lynch has denied knowing or talking to the person to whom she allegedly gave this assurance. And it's worth noting that the email itself was apparently never found, only an account of the email from supposedly hacked documents.
