Congress ERUPTS After Lynch Pleads the Fifth

Attorney General Loretta Lynch has effectively pleaded the 5th Amendment over the Iran ransom payments. That is what members of Congress have said in the latest stonewalling for the Department of Justice. Senator Marco Rubio and Representative Mike Pompeo are incensed that they would keep Congress from their overdight roles. The excuses and or reasons are not acceptable to Congress.  

As Written By Joe Crowe for Newsmax:

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with a probe into the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year to avoid incriminating herself, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo wrote in a letter that Lynch chose to “essentially plead the Fifth,” after the Republican lawmakers presented her with questions about the cash payment.

In an Oct. 24 response, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik responded for Lynch, refusing to answer the questions and telling the lawmakers that they are barred from publicly revealing details about the payment.

“Disclosure of this information beyond members of the House and Senate and staff who are able to view them could adversely affect the diplomatic relations of the United States, including with key allies,” Kadzik wrote.

“It is frankly unacceptable that your department refuses to answer straightforward questions from the people’s elected representatives in Congress about an important national security issue,” Rubio and Pompeo wrote…..

    Arrest her and waterboard her and while that’s going on, ask her what she and Billy Bob talked about on the tarmac in Phoenix.

    • Bertie

      I’m sure that would require forcibly administering sodium pentothal.

      • dhd123

        Whatever it takes to get the weasel to speak.

    They dont care anymore the damage has been done. Obo wont go.

    • JoAnn Graham

      That’s what I think too. This whole “re-opening” of the Shrillary email investigation is a ploy to disqualify their OWN candidate–because they realize she CANNOT WIN. This will create a Constitutional crisis–and BLM has already said they would riot nationwide if she did not win–so they’ll riot, which gives Obama the excuse he wants to declare martial law, STOP the elections from happening and REFUSE TO LEAVE when his term is up. Because the power-mad Dems have realized that is the ONLY way they can keep him from winning, and as you said, they don’t CARE anymore, because they are NOT going to give up the power of the Presidency, no matter WHAT.

        That means BO has installed a civilian terrorist force in our country. If that is true, that would be treason.

        • World Watcher

          They are not civilians. .

      • Surly Curmudgen

        If they do that their actions will be the cause of many of their own deaths.

    Pleading the 5th is the same as admitting guilt. The whole administration is guilty of corruption. It’s a form of smugness and part of the division in this country now. The demorcrats believe they don’t have to answer to Republican law makers as they are the one’s guilty of division.

  • Surly Curmudgen

    The top person in our legal system pleading the fifth should cause the immediate removal of that individual from their position. No impeachment need and out before leaving their chair.

  • jim scofield

    Its time to issue a warrant for Her for contempt of
    Congress. Congress needs to grow a pair of balls
    and stop letting this criminal regime get away with
    everything under the sun. Hey Congress Sound Off
    like You got a pair pussys.

  • Ian W

    Strange Dems say the 2nd Amendment is outdated and the Constitution is just a piece of paper – yet they plead the 5th Amendment? The Constitution is a whole – you cannot pick and choose which part suits your current position.

    • ThereAintNoJustice

      If you’re running the store you can just about get away with anything. The Obama administration and Hillary Clinton by default seem to think they can too. It is time to change management throughout .

  • bikerdogred1

    Just another black lying stooge of the Obama administration!

  • Pray Hard

    So, the AG is a criminal. I mean, we already knew it, but now it’s confirmed.

  • Some Poor Hobo

    Drain the swamp! Our House needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. Term limits, no more career politicians.

    • Bertie

      I always thought term limits were at the ballot box, however, after seeing the ignorance of American voters in continually reelecting corrupt politicians such as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Luis Gutierrez, Sheila Jackson Lee, Hank Johnson and their types …. I now think term limits are an absolute requirement. When we have more than 47+% of the population that aren’t paying any income taxes I don’t see how we can avoid it. Maybe a passing grade on a basic U.S. civics test should be included. (It’s helpful to know that we did NOT fight the Japanese in the American Revolutionary War!)

      • NukeWaste

        No, WE didn’t. There were Japanese who settled here that fought on the side of the Colonies. So, the British did.

        • Bertie

          That is one of the lamest comments I’ve read in YEARS.

    • usmadgirl

      You don’t want to throw out the good with the awful & take a chance on their being replaced with worse. The top 4 or 5 Senators & the top 36 in the House rated on Conservative Review . com need to stay! They have proven their loyalty to the Constitution & the people. The rest of the bunch has to go!

  • Bob

    you don’t really BELIEVE the worthless GUTLESS RINOs are going to do anything do you??
    I mean, they have been sandbagging and filling their own pockets at our expense for the last what….60 years???
    Not a HILL of beans worth of difference between the TWO parties ACTIONS.
    VOTE Trump, and I hope he arranges for TERM LIMITS and gets all 533 of them OUT OF THERE!

  • Patriot47

    Keep the spotlight on ALL the cockroaches and watch them scurry for Constitutional protection.

  • Resist_Tyranny

    Why wasn’t she forced to step down that very instant?

  • Lillian DeLuise Kunz

    Terrible person!
