Attorney General of the US, attempts to block FBI investigation

Attorney General told FBI director James Comey NOT to send letter to Congress about bureau reopening the investigation into Hillary’s emails because it could influence the election outcome

Lynch argued to Comey that he should follow the Justice Department’s practice of not taking actions that could influence the outcome of a presidential election, The New Yorker reported on Saturday. The FBI director is an employee of the Justice Department and is ‘covered under its policies.’ Comey broke from Lynch, who objected to the move, and independently sent the letter to Congress on Friday, dropping the bombshell about the restarted investigation based on newly discovered emails, rocking Clinton’s campaign. Comey’s supporters argue that he had to break away from Lynch and act independently on the issue due to her compromising herself when she had an impromptu visit with former president Bill Clinton late into the investigation earlier this year.

British papers covering American Election and related stories better than US news outlets.  Again.  Or is that ‘still’?
