Former AG Lynch defends actions in Clinton email investigation

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) - (04/15/18)- Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is defending her actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation following criticism from former FBI Director James Comey.

Comey says in his forthcoming book that, early in the email inquiry, Lynch had instructed him to refer to it as a "matter" rather than an "investigation."

Lynch tells The Associated Press that she was simply following longstanding Justice Department protocol against confirming or denying the existence of an investigation.
