FBI Director James Comey was singing like a canary compared to Loretta Lynch’s appearance before the House Oversight Committee Tuesday. Here’s a transcript from John Sexton at Hot Air (via Ace of Spades):

Chaffetz: Does an individual need a security clearance to review or have access to classified material?

Lynch: Well, congressman, that issue would be dependent upon the agency for whom they worked and the nature of the work that they did with respect to…

Chaffetz: Can you give me an example where you don’t need a security clearance to view classified material?

Lynch: No, I believe as I was going to say, they would, but the type of clearance varies with every agency and the agency would make that decision and determination.

Chaffetz: Is it legal or illegal to share classified information with somebody who doesn’t have a security clearance?

Lynch: Congressman, it depends on the facts of every situation. You’d have to determine how that sharing occurred. You’d have to determine the means. You’d have to determine the reason, the intent, um, certainly depending on how you view the statute it could go any number of ways.

Chaffetz: So you think there is a scenario in which you could share classified information with somebody who doesn’t have the requisite security clearance?

Lynch: No, I would not draw that conclusion. I would say that I’m not able to answer it as a hypothetical but there are a number of factors that would go into the decision and one could have any number of results.

In other words, “It depends on what the meaning of ‘classified’ is.” Does that approach sound familiar? It’s safe to say we know who will still be Attorney General if Hillary’s elected.

Here’s a dramatization of Bill Clinton’s totally accidental meeting with Loretta Lynch just days before Hillary was semi-vindicated by the FBI:
