Bureaucrats like Loretta Lynch need to maintain an image of deniability. Others whose career was largely outside of government can back them down with questions like this. James Comey’s staff discovered new evidence that he wanted to use to reopen his investigation into Hillary Clinton. Ms. Lynch tried to discourage him so Comey put her on the spot. She flinched and backed down like the midget she is.
Surprisingly enough President Obama has not backed Lynch’s attempt to protect Clinton. Maybe there is more to the stories of a feud between Obama and the Clintons.

Sources told Reuters how James Comey, the FBI boss, challenged Loretta Lynch, the nation’s most senior prosecutor, over whether she was directing him to keep the bombshell discovery of new, ‘relevant’ emails secret from Congress.
The development was revealed by the news agency hours after the White House went out of its way to back Comey as a man of ‘integrity’ and rubbish Hillary Clinton’s attack on him.”
