Loretta Lynch’s incredulous testimony to House over FISA spying application

Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch told a closed-door Congressional testimony last Dec that she had no recollection of signing FISA court applications to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Lynch, although acknowledging that her signature as AG is required, bit told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, according to Sara Carter who has strong Capitol Hill sources.

The ex-AG told lawmakers that her deputies, first Sally Yates, and then he renewal was approved by Rod Rosenstein. Other signatories were former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

In contentious testimony to Goodlatte’s queries, Lynch told repeatedly in many different iterations that she was aware the AG needed to be final sign off on all FISA applications and renewals, but had no memory of approving the spying of Carter Page.

Yesterday, I wrote about the intense spying application on Page.

The key to Lynch’s testimony is that the ex-AG said: “Don’t remember,” Don’t have a recollection” and “Don’t recall” are the answers she gave Goodlatte to his incredulous questions of how she allegedly delegated her responsibility as the nation’s top law official when it came to spying on an American citizen working for a Republican presidential campaign.
