Lynch Probe Furthers A Troubling Saga

OpsLens Video

Loretta Lynch continues to be subject of an investigation for her actions as Attorney General.

As Loretta Lynch continues to be the focus of yet another investigation tied to the misuse and misappropriation of an email server for communication of classified information, the matter has continued the saga that fueled a contentious presidential election.

But this matter is significant not because its ability to generate headlines and sell newspapers, rather it shows the level of betrayal so flippantly committed by many political leaders. Betrayal of the men and women who are beholden the powerful and commit their lives to working and serving the American public despite the roadblocks encountered at the hands of their elected and appointed leaders.

As new holes continue to appear in the former Attorney General’s story, congress will have yet again another chance to see that justice is done and show the hard working men and women who rely on classified information for protection that they matter.
