Ex-FBI Director James Comey savages President Trump in his bestselling new tell-all, “A Higher Loyalty” — but also skewers former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for her dubious handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.

Lynch, wrote Comey, had a “tortured half-out, half-in approach” to the investigation, and he said he even considered calling for a special prosecutor to be appointed to oversee the probe because of Lynch’s ambivalence.

It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:

“But I decided it would be brutally unfair to do that,” he wrote. “A world-class FBI team had investigated Hillary Clinton for a year, and all of them — to a person — believed there was no prosecutable case.”

The NY Post further reported:

Still, he described Lynch’s behavior regarding the probe as “very strange” in that she rejected calls to recuse herself from the case while not playing much of a role in the investigation.

“She chose a very strange position — that she would not remove herself, but that she would accept my recommendation about the case,” he added.

“In effect, she was removing herself but not removing herself. Again, very strange.”
