Snapshots: AG says no politics in Clinton email case

Washington — Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday she doesn’t believe the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server has been compromised by President Barack Obama’s endorsement of Clinton in the 2016 White House race.

That endorsement raised eyebrows among conservatives who say it puts pressure on the law enforcement agencies, run by Obama’s political appointees, to pull punches when trying to decide whether Clinton should be charged.

The FBI is investigating whether Clinton broke any laws relying on a private email server during her four years as Obama’s secretary of State instead of using a system owned and protected by the federal government.

“The investigation into the State Department email matter is going to be handled like any other matter,” Lynch told “Fox News Sunday.”

“We’ve got career agents and lawyers looking at that. They will follow the facts and follow the evidence wherever it leads and come to a conclusion,” she said.

Lynch said she has never spoken about the investigation with Obama or “really with anyone” at the White House.

“That’s not the kind of relationship that I have with people there and it would be inappropriate to do so,” she said.

Trump says denying him nomination ‘illegal’

Trump hit back at forces within his party who may try to stop him from formally capturing the Republican presidential nomination, calling their reported plans “illegal,” and after a few rough weeks marked by rising negative ratings he said the general election campaign really hasn’t started.

“First of all, it’s meaningless. Second of all, it’s illegal. Third of all, you can’t do it,” Trump said in Las Vegas on Saturday of the reported plan to unseat him during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next month.

Trump said that talk of a convention challenge was being manufactured by the media, and that Republican leaders and voters alike were were giving him “tremendous support.”

Tensions have flared regularly between Trump and some establishment figures within the party since he became the presumptive Republican nominee in late May. The Washington Post reported on Friday that Trump critics hope to challenge him in Cleveland by making changes to rules governing the convention. Dozens of Republican delegates were said to be on board.
