Former FBI Director James Comey’s alleged memo on President Donald Trump and Michael Flynn is all the talk in Washington right now. However, a major GOP legislator just requested another batch of Comey’s memos — and Loretta Lynch isn’t going to be happy.
According to The Daily Caller, Texas. Rep. Pete Sessions said that in addition to the alleged memo involving the president’s request to drop the investigation against former National Security Advisor Flynn, he also wants Comey to turn over all memos relating to former Attorney General Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton last summer.
“If The New York Times has (Comey’s memo) that means we’re going to be able to see it and I would assume that would be fair. I assume that Mr. Comey also kept, if he’s disturbed by the same memos, that he gave to or about when Mrs. Clinton’s husband appeared in the jet with the attorney general,” Sessions said Tuesday.
“So I assume that memo would be available to us also. And I would assume that we will see a number of disturbing trends that took place at the Department of Justice (during the Obama administration) for whatever he’s claiming and I’ll look forward to seeing all those,” he added.
“But I cannot comment, because I have not seen them but I would assume that Mr. Comey that if he kept one on this visit, evidently, he has others. Now I look forward to seeing those.”
Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting — in which she insists she merely discussed grandkids and golf with the former president just days before Comey recommended Hillary Clinton not be charged for her private email server — has long been a subject of contention among conservatives.
The New York Times says that the former FBI director “described all of his contacts with the president and the White House … in detailed memos he wrote at the time and gave to his aides.”
If Comey is such an ardent taker of memos — as The Times seems to contend — there are undoubtedly memos from the Lynch saga. Now that Republicans want them, it seems that the truth could come out — and the former attorney general should be very afraid.
