Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
She of the highly inappropriate private meeting on an airplane with an oh so conveniently present former president and husband of Hillary, Bill Clinton.
The DOJ is saying that Comey violated policy by writing that letter to Congress informing them of the newly discovered Emails.
They have also not given the FBI a warrant to search them yet.
So in one corner we have Director Comey and members of Congress who are VERY interested in seeing if anything new is in those Emails and in the other corner we have Attorney General Lynch, The Clinton cabal and the power of the DOJ slamming on the brakes.
This is going to get very interesting, very quickly.
Pass the popcorn.
Four Democrats in the Senate on Saturday sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey requesting a range of disclosures in the wake of Comey's Friday announcement about newly discovered emails possibly pertaining to Hillary Clinton's use of a private server.
The letter asks for "more detailed information about the investigative steps being taken, the number of emails involved, and what is being done to determine how many of the emails are duplicative of those already reviewed."
Sen. Patrick Leahy, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Sen. Benjamin Cardin and Sen. Thomas Carper signed the letter and gave Comey and Lynch a deadline of Monday to respond.
Calling Comey's letter from Friday "troubling," and noting that they are aware of the warning given by the Justice Department to the FBI regarding Comey's actions on Friday, the senators also write that his letter to Congressional Republicans breaks with the longstanding tradition of the FBI and Department of Justice proceeding cautiously in the days leading up to an election.
"Director Comey's letter has been misunderstood. It is already being used for political purposes, creating a misleading impression regarding the FBI's intent and actions," the senators wrote, calling on federal officials to dispel any misleading impressions and clarify what significance any of the new emails have to the previous investigation of Sec. Clinton.
The Justice Department advised Comey against telling Congress about newly discovered emails possibly "pertinent” to the agency’s investigation into Clinton’s server, with GOP rival Donald Trump on Saturday suggesting a cover-up.
