Loretta Lynch Threatened To Reopen Eric Garner Case If NYPD Leaked Info About Weiner’s Laptop

Lynch threatened to reopen the Eric Garner case, and plenty of people were involved.

Lynch busted for threatening FBI to save Clinton.

Journalist Tracy Beanz uncovered an explosive detail about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch buried deep in the report from the Department of Justice’s Office of Inspector General that was released last week.

In a series of tweets, Beanz details how the OIG report states Lynch threatened the reopen the case into Eric Garner if the New York Police Department leaked information about former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. At the time, Weiner was being investigated by the NYPD and DOJ for sending and receiving lewd text messages with an underage girl.

When the NYPD seized Weiner’s personal laptop as part of the investigation, they found hundreds of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Weiner’s wife at the time, Huma Abedin, has worked for Clinton for more than a decade. So Abedin and Clinton’s work emails from the State Department, which contained classified information, were on Weiner’s computer. That computer was in the NYPD’s possession.

All of this was discovered and announced in late October 2016, which was just prior to the presidential election.

In an attempt to perhaps shield Clinton from more public scrutiny, the OIG report appears to show that Lynch threatened to reopen the Garner case — which involved the NYPD fatally shooting an African American — if officers leaked damaging information about Clinton’s emails on Weiner’s laptop.

In her second tweet listed above, there are screenshots of the OIG report, which show former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was aware of the information about Clinton found on Weiner’s laptop.

The report states McCabe became aware of the Clinton-Abedin-Weiner laptop fiasco in September 2016. However, he sat on that information for one month and didn’t officially make any action at the FBI on the case.

On Oct. 24, 2016, ABC News reported that Lynch swapped out the entire federal investigative team handling the Garner case with a completely new team.

This is very telling, because as ABC News suggests, it appears Lynch was attempting to install a new team of DOJ investigators who wanted to charge NYPD officers for killing Garner.

One could argue Lynch used her new team as a means to threaten the NYPD that she would charge its officers and launch a full investigation into the department if any information about Clinton-Abedin-Weiner leaked to the public.

The OIG report states that on Oct. 26, 2016, just two days later, McCabe authorized leaks from the FBI to The Wall Street Journal about the Clinton email investigation.

Below is a screenshot from Beanz of the OIG report detailing the admission:

The OIG report stated McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions because he lied at least four times when questioned about allowing leaks to help Clinton’s presidential campaign.

McCabe lied about authorizing high-level leaks from the bureau to the Journal in October 2016. The report explicitly states that McCabe leaked information to tone down the nature of the investigation into Clinton’s private email scandal and “pay-for-play” allegations involving her foundation.

The report also said McCabe told investigators he had a “hastily convened conference call with LL (Loretta Lynch) who delivers the same message about leaks with a focus on leaks in the Eric Garner case.”

Why was Lynch on a call with McCabe and Diego G.Rodriguez, the assistant director in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s New York Field Office, to discuss Weiner’s laptop and the information it contained about Clinton?

Why did McCabe leak information to the Journal that downplayed the severity of the bureau’s investigation into Clinton’s mishandling of classified information on the same day he spoke to Lynch?

Collectively, this presents a strong argument that Lynch threatened to reopen the case into Garner so McCabe and others would keep a tight lid on the Clinton email investigation.

Why would they do this? Because they wanted Clinton to win the election.
