The letters are signed by Grassley, ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein, the chairman of a subcommittee, Lindsey Graham of SC, and its top Democrat, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island. The Times also reports that letters were also sent to various operatives within the Clinton campaign because people involved were part of an email chain from Lynch who gave them assurances that the investigation wouldn't "go too far".
Comey testified that the revelation of the private meeting is what motivated him to tell the public that the Bureau would not pursue charges. Lynch allegedly issued the "matter" directive to Comey despite the Justice Department knowing the FBI probe was not only an official investigation but a criminal probe.
The Washington Post reported a similar story in May, including more details about the communications and an email, considered dubious, from then-Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to Benardo that indicated Lynch had privately assured Renteria that the FBI's investigation wouldn't "go too far".
The Senate Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department, and the senators are seeking "details about the reported communication, copies of any related documents and whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted them to investigate the alleged communication".
By requesting information from Lynch, the committee is expanding its probe on political interference to cover both the Obama and Trump administrations.
In that email, the committee said that Waserman Schultz admitted Lynch had private talks with a senior Clinton campaign staffer, Amanda Renteria.
While it awaits Lynch's response, the committee is pressing forward with its investigation of Trump's May 9 firing of Comey.
An email reportedly recounting that alleged conversation and authored by Rep. The FBI never interviewed Wasserman Schultz, Bernardo or Renteria about the alleged email.
Circa reported that Comey also discussed his communications with Lynch in a closed-door meeting with lawmakers. Citing a person familiar with the discussion, the Post reported that Lynch told Federal Bureau of Investigation officials she did not know who Renteria is, and had "never communicated with her". By July 6, the Judiciary Committee requests copies of the documents and emails in question, and well as answers as to whether they existed in the first place and if the Federal Bureau of Investigation had previously tried to obtain them for the recipients.
