Lynch to accept recommendations from FBI agents on Clinton Email case
Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch has said on Friday that she is ready to accept recommendations from career prosecutors and FBI agents working on the case of use of a private server by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state for communication.
Lynch did not remove herself from the case entirely and also admitted that she will be briefed on the findings in the case. Her remarks comes amid growing criticism that she cannot be trusted to oversee the probe of the presumptive Democratic nominee for president as she is the head of the Justice Department in a Democratic administration.
There are indications that even as she will be briefed on the proceedings in the case, she might not veto whatever was recommended by those investigating the case. She pointed out that the officials would develop a chronology what happened in the case and provide recommendations on courses of action including the determination as to how to proceed in the case. She clearly stated that she will accept their recommendations.
Experts said that the attorney generally gets involved in a very small number of cases including only high-profile or those that produce disputes among others at the Justice Department.
