John Podesta, without any condemnation from Hillary Clinton, has been on an anti-F.B.I. streak since the election. Podesta wrote a long, rambling and sometimes incoherent op-ed in the Washington Post. He cited of all people, Roger Stone as a source and reiterated his call for the Obama administration to provide a security briefing for Clinton electors.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch is not taking kindly to Podesta’s attacks. In an interview that will air in its entirety on Sunday’s of ‘State of the Union’ on CNN. Here is a clip:
“He’s not involved in the ongoing investigation so he wouldn’t be privy to everything that would have been done or said to that. But as I said, he’s entitled to his opinion,” Lynch said of Podesta. “I can tell you that this investigation was taken seriously from the beginning.”
Asked if she agreed with Podesta’s characterization that the FBI investigation had been sub-standard, Lynch said it could not be judged yet.
“First of all, the investigation isn’t even over. So I think it’s impossible to characterize it in any one way or the other,” she said. “Again, I don’t know where Mr. Podesta is obtaining information.”
He doesn’t have information. He has fantasies. He’s throwing crap against the wall and hoping it will stick.
