As part of a Tuesday-morning tweetstorm on the various issues bothering him at the moment, President Donald Trump accused former Attorney General Loretta Lynch of illegally trying to protect his erstwhile opponent Hillary Clinton from an investigation into her use of a private email server as secretary of state.
The day after an appeals court cited one of his tweets in the judges’ opinion to uphold the block of President Trump’s travel ban, Trump again took to Twitter to rail against the court’s decision at “such a risky time” for America.
Comey said Lynch told him “not to call it an investigation but to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me”. “Totally illegal”, he said.
Trump took to social media just hours before Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee, a session likely to touch on an investigation of possible links between Trump’s campaign and Russians who sought to interfere in last year’s election.

Lynch also came under fire for meeting with former President Bill Clinton at an airport in Arizona in June while she was investigating his wife. Trump tweeted. The Washington Examiner, the Washington Post and Politico have stories. “Where is their apology to me for all the incorrect stories???” he tweeted.
“The Fake News Media has never been so wrong or so dirty”.
