President Obama’s long-stalled nominee for attorney general, Loretta Lynch, has refused to commit to investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email secrecy scandal if confirmed as America’s top cop.
Responding to a question submitted by Sen. David Vitter, Louisiana Republican, Mrs. Lynch said in a letter Thursday that she didn’t have enough information to form an opinion about investigating Mrs. Clinton’s exclusive use of a private email account to conduct official business at the State Department.
“In my current role as the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, my awareness of this issue has been limited to media reports and therefore, I do not have enough information at this time to determine whether action by the Department of Justice is warranted,” wrote Mrs. Lynch.

***Loretta Lynch, Obama's pick to succeed Eric "The Red" Holder for Attorney General, won't commit to investigating Hillary Clinton for her email debacle. Gosh, wonder if her answer would be the same if it were a Republican in the hot seat? Oh, she would be morally outraged and swear to get to the bottom of it! This woman would be as bad or worse than Holder, and I hope the Republicans don't cower beneath the cries of Racist! and Sexist! and confirm her. She is a very poor choice, but she's exactly what Obama wants for this country.
