A bipartisan letter was released last week requesting comment from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Lynch has refused to comply with the letter as she continues to prevent an investigation into her old boss Barack Obama.
However, members of Congress should not expect cooperation from the disgraced Attorney General. When she was asked to testify about the Iran deal, Lynch refused to cooperate and repeatedly pled the Fifth (via The Washington Free Beacon).
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), and then-Representive Mike Pompeo (R-KS), launched an investigation into Obama’s Iran deal last year and requested comment from the then-Attorney General.
Lynch never acknowledged the investigation and asked her underling, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik, to take the heat for her.
Peter Kadzik replied to the request for comment by refusing to answer any of the questions posed. He claimed the administration was unable to comment publicly on the details of the $1.7 billion Iran deal.
Late into Obama’s presidency, his administration negotiated a secret deal with the Iranian government. The final deal was a huge win for the Iranian government and American hostages were released shortly afterwards.
Obama denied that the $1.7 billion was paid in exchange for the hostages. However, representatives from his administration have remained remarkably silent about any other possible motivations.
en. Rubio and Rep. Pompeo were outraged that the Obama administration refused to cooperate when they were still in power.
“It is frankly unacceptable that your department refuses to answer straightforward questions from the people’s elected representatives in Congress about an important national security issue,” the pair wrote in a follow-up letter. “Your staff failed to address any of our questions, and instead provided a copy of public testimony and a lecture about the sensitivity of information associated with this issue.”
“This has become the Obama administration’s coping mechanism for anything related to the Islamic Republic of Iran—hide information, obfuscate details, and deny answers to Congress and the American people,” the letter continued.
Lawmakers close to the Iran deal claim that the Obama administration refuses to answer any questions because the answers would be more damning than any consequences of ignoring a congressional inquiry.
We can expect Lynch to maintain this strategy as Congress probes her role in the unmasking of American citizens. However, Lynch no longer has the Obama administration in power to cover her illegal acts.
