US attorney general says won’t interfere in Clinton email probe

0

WASHINGTON: US Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged Friday (Saturday in Manila) to respect FBI and prosecutors’ decisions on whether to charge presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton over her use of personal email while at the State Department. Lynch was forced to make the announcement after she held an impromptu meeting with former president Bill Clinton at the airport in Phoenix, Arizona this week and touched off a political firestorm. The top US law enforcement official admitted that the private encounter had “cast a shadow” over the investigation into Clinton’s emails in the run up to the November general election. But Lynch insisted that she, as a political appointee, will not overrule investigators or otherwise interfere in the legal process regarding the probe, and that the integrity of the Justice Department will be upheld.
