US Congress Rep. David Trott said he had his staff count the number of times that Attorney General Loretta Lynch ducked questions, or simply did not give a response during her testimony before Congress.
Luckily for Hillary Clinton, that number is pretty high.
“I knew you weren’t going to answer our questions today, and I apologize for wasting so much time here, because it’s really not been very productive. And I asked my staff to count the number of times today you would say ‘I can’t answer that question’ or refuse to give an appropriate response. It’s happened 74 times so far.”
“Really, it’s either one of two things: Either you’re trying to avoid the appearance of impropriety, in which case you should have recused yourself, or you’re trying to protect Hillary Clinton”
I think we can all make a good guess as to which one it is.
Zerohedge has more on Lynch’s convenient silence…
Loretta Lynch refused an entire line of questions from Rep. Jason Chaffetz about whether or not it was hypothetically legal or illegal to retain classified information.
Despite the straightforward nature of this questioning, Attorney General Lynch refused to even acknowledge whether or not it is illegal to lie under oath.
Wow. This is stonewalling of epic proportions.
Here is a video of Lynch dodging questions.
