On Sunday, outgoing Attorney General Loretta Lynch sat down with CNN’s Jake Tapper for an exit interview before she leaves office in January.
Tapper asked Lynch about the ongoing investigation into the Russian hacks of the Democratic National Committee, something that Lynch would not comment on.
Then Tapper asked Lynch about an op-ed written by Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta. In the op-ed, Podesta sharply criticized the FBI and called for an investigation into the FBI. Podesta was clearly upset over how the FBI handled the investigation.
“What I can say is that he’s [Podesta] not involved in the ongoing investigating so he wouldn’t be privy to everything that would have been done or said to that,” Lynch said of Podesta’s op-ed.
Tapper pressed Lynch on Podesta’s assertion that Hillary Clinton’s email server got more attention than the DNC hacks.
“Well that’s an ongoing investigation so I would say it’s been taken very seriously,” Lynch told Tapper.
