The Senate Judiciary committee has asked former AG Loretta Lynch to disclose conversations she has had with two people who were implicated in the "dubious" intel that then-FBI Director James Comey relied on before announcing the Clinton investigation was over. The Judiciary Committee is now probing into both Trump and Obama administrations.

The details:

  • The potentially fake report, which could be linked to Russia, alleged that then-DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed in an email that Lynch told a Clinton staffer the FBI wouldn't probe too far into Clinton.
  • The Judiciary committee now wants to hear about Lynch's conversations with Wasserman Schultz and that staffer.

  • And they want Lynch to disclose any conversations she had with Clinton's campaign and the DNC about the investigation.

He moves slower than they want, sides with liberals more than they want, and trims his sails in ways they find maddening. But he is still deeply and unmistakably conservative, pulling the law to the right — at his own pace and in his own image.

By letting the coronavirus surge through the population with only minimal social distancing measures in place, the U.S. has accidentally become the world’s largest experiment in herd immunity.

Why it matters: Letting the virus spread while minimizing human loss is doable, in theory. But it requires very strict protections for vulnerable people, almost none of which the U.S. has established.
