Loretta Lynch exchanged material with top Clinton campaign-aide that’s so classified the IG can’t speak on it

It was revealed Monday during the Senate judiciary hearing that a top-level Clinton aide had exchanged ‘highly classified’ material with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The information was so top-secret that Inspector General Michael Horowitz said he wouldn’t speak on the matter.

“I’m not sure what I can say about that, given the matter is classified,” Horowitz said of the exchange. “I would ask you if I could back to you on that.”

The Clinton official Lynch allegedly exchange the information with was Amanda Renteria. Renteria worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, but first started in politics by working for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the San Francisco Bee reported.

Horowitz explained that the information exchanged was so highly classified by the intelligence community that it limits who within the intel community can see it.

Horowitz said he would try to determine why the material was classified at such a high level, so that “we can make sure the we can write it a level, and get it the members.” He also added that he very much wants the committee to see the information.

Renteria is a Mexican-American from California and her work for Clinton against Donald Trump in 2016 became personal for her, according to the Bee. She threw her name into the race for California Governor in February 2016 and had previously worked as California A.G. Xavier Becerra’s chief or operations.

As Twitter user Joe Palmer pointed out, Becerra was in charge of the House Democrat Caucus – whose server the Awan Brothers stole.

Palmer did some more digging and found that then-FBI Director James Comey had a “frosty exchange” with Lynch over Hillary Clinton’s email investigation and a “sensitive document.”

One day after the report, Trump tweeted:

Meanwhile, both Comey and Lynch were no-shows at the hearing.
