Fired FBI Director James Comey should testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about his Senate Intelligence Committee testimony revelation that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to downplay his investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday in an interview on CNN's State of the Union.
Feinstein, who is a member of both committees, said "we need to know more" about Lynch's actions. "I would have a queasy feeling too, though, to be candid with you," she said, referring to Comey's remark that Lynch's request for him to call the Clinton probe a "matter" instead of an "investigation" suggested undue partiality.
In the same interview, Feinstein also said she'd like to see sitting Attorney General Jeff Sessions testify before the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the Justice Department. Sessions is due to testify before the Intelligence Committee this week, but Feinstein argues the Judiciary Committee is the best place to "investigate all issues that raise a question of obstruction of justice" because of its greater legal expertise.
