Lynch To Recuse Herself?
Attorney General Loretta Lynch, facing some controversy resulting from her recent meeting with former President Bill Clinton, is under pressure to recuse herself from the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails, as reported by The Hill. Will she do so? According to the Daily Mail, she will, but Breitbart (citing a Bloomberg Politics reporter) says she won't. The New York Times reports that she will announce her decision some time today. Calls for her recusal have come from such people as Carl Bernstein (from The Washington Free Beacon), whose investigation into Watergate helped bring down President Richard Nixon over 40 years ago, and Corey Lewandowski (from The Washington Times), the recently-released campaign manager for Donald Trump.
