Mr. Jordan. Ms. Lynch, so in Mr. Comey's book he says this:
Comey quoted you as saying, "Call it a matter."
He responded, "Why would I do that?"
"'Just call it a matter,' she snapped back."
Is that accurate?
Ms. Lynch. I haven't read his book, so I can't say if that's in
there or not.
Mr. Jordan. I'm reading directly from his book.
He said call it a matter -- or you said, "Call it a matter."
His response was, "Why would I do that?"
He said you snapped back with, "Just call it a matter." Is that accurate?
Ms. Lynch. Well, again, leaving aside whether it's in the book
or not, that's not my recollection of the meeting. But I can't explain
to you why he remembers it that way.
Mr. Jordan. Okay. He said this in his book.
"The Attorney General seemed to be directing me to align me with
the Clinton campaign strategy," he wrote, adding caustically that,
quote, "The FBI didn't do matters."
Is that true? Were you trying to align him with the Clinton
Ms. Lynch. I wasn't aware of the Clinton campaign strategy on
anything. I had never --
Mr. Jordan. So you weren't trying to align anybody with the
Clinton campaign strategy?
Ms. Lynch. I was not trying to align anyone on any issue with
a campaign strategy in this case or any other.
