Michael Mukasey, the attorney general under George W. Bush, said on Friday that Lynch essentially turned the Department of Justice into "an arm of the Clinton campaign".
This comes in response to Comey's claims that Lynch told him to call the FBI probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's alleged mishandling of work emails a "matter" instead of an "investigation".
"It was misinterpreted", Pelosi said at a press conference. "We had an investigation open for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, we had an investigation open at the time".
"Feinstein: "I can't answer that". She said lawmakers need to know more about that, and the judiciary committee should "take a look" at it. "We do investigations here at the FBI, '" Herridge related.
Lynch, a nominee of President Barack Obama, caught flak past year for a meeting she had with former POTUS Bill Clinton.
Comey said on CBS program "Face The Nation" he wanted to know if it was true that Comey was spurred by that document to make his July announcement that he would not recommend charges to the Justice Department.
"[Lynch] made the American voters' decision a little bit easier when it came to election day based on this type of at least perceived collusion", since voters were concerned about government corruption, Townhall.com editor Katie Pavlich said on "America's News HQ".
Trump denied that he had asked Comey for his loyalty, though, adding, "There would be nothing wrong if I did say it".
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that she would have had a "queasy feeling, too".
And she said, yes, but don't call it that, call it a matter. Feinstein said Comey's statements about Lynch were also a matter for the judiciary committee to look at.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., though, said he hasn't heard Lynch's side of the story and can not say "whether it rises to the level that she should come and testify".
She even added that she wants to determine whether U.S. President Donald Trump asked Coats or Rogers to take any action on the Russian Federation investigation.
"What I was trying to get at was whether Mr Comey believes that any of his interactions with the president rise to the level of obstruction of justice".
