NEW YORK — Senate Republicans are eying the possibility of seeking testimony from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch over possible wrongdoing with regard to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
On Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, formally requesting that the committee probe any attempts to influence the FBI’s investigations under the Trump and Obama administrations.
It is not immediately clear whether the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the Justice Department, has taken any action on the matter.
A spokesman for Grassley, the Judiciary Committee chairman, told The Hill that although no decisions have been made, it is “likely” that Lynch’s testimony to the Committee “will become necessary at some point.” The spokesman explained that the Committee needs to first “gather evidence.”
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), a member of the Judiciary Committee, said it “would be very helpful” for Lynch to testify, The Hill reported.
