Comey: AG Lynch Request Made Me 'Queasy'

posted by Steve Landry -

Admitting the request made him feel 'queasy,' Former FBI Director James Comey testified on Thursday that former Attorney Loretta Lynch requested he comply with Democratic talking points and refer to the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's email scandal as a "matter." Comey said the request played a part in his decision to hold his now-infamous press conference about the results of that investigation. 

"Probably the only other consideration that I guess I can talk about in an open setting is that at one point, the attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me," he said when asked about the email investigation.

Comey was later asked more by Sen. James Lankford, D-Okla., about Lynch's request.

"Just call it a matter," Comey said he was told by Lynch.
