It is extremely important that the Attorney General maintains not only an unbiased position, but also the appearance of one. As the most visible representative of the highest level of our legal system it is crucial that she is proactive in maintaining the high standards we all expect from her office. Even if it is the case that her meeting with the former president was only a chance one, she should have recognized the potential fallout and removed herself from the decision before media scrutiny was allowed to damage her reputation.
Many believe that Attorney General Loretta Lynch will not indict Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing because of partisan politics. Lynch works for the Obama Administration which does not want to see Clinton indicted. Furthermore, Lynch recently met privately with Bill Clinton which has raised further suspicions as to her impartiality in the investigation. Therefore, it would be better of Loretta Lynch completely removed herself from the decision of whether or not to indict Hillary Clinton.
Yes, Loretta Lynch should have removed herself from the decision about whether or not Hillary Clinton will be criminally charged. As the attorney general, Lynch is a political appointee of President Obama. Since Lynch and Clinton are both members of the democratic party and Clinton is also the party's presumptive presidential nominee, Lynch should have removed herself from the prosecutorial decision because of the potential conflict of interest.
Lynch should not remove herself from the Clinton Decision just because she had a conversation. This world has lost too much faith in the right/wrong of our political leaders due to the continued exposure of life activities of politicians. But there ARE some noble and honest people. We need to take the chance that Lynch will do the right thing and create an atmosphere of trust and state her FACTS.
