The top U.S. law enforcement official on Friday pledged an independent investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while Secretary of State.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch stated this after questions about bias were raised when she met privately with former President Bill Clinton.

Lynch, who was nominated to serve as a U.S. attorney by Clinton, said she understood concerns that had been raised after she met with him earlier this week.

This is even as she maintains she did not discuss an ongoing FBI investigation with him.

Lynch said she will follow the recommendations of prosecutors who are examining whether Hillary Clinton violated any laws through her use of the private email system.

“They are acting independently, they follow the law, they follow the facts,” Lynch said in remarks at the Aspen Institute think tank. The findings will be reviewed by supervisors and FBI Director James Comey before being presented to Lynch, who will follow their recommendations,” she said.

Lynch highlighted those involved in evaluating the case would not be appointed by the Obama administration.

The FBI is investigating Hillary Clinton’s server to see if classified information was mishandled, a topic which has become a key issue in her presidential campaign.

A State Department review released in May, faulted Hillary Clinton for her exclusive use of the private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

The department said the practice posed a security risk and did not comply with government records laws.

    didn’t I say it and many of u insulted me. this woman is under investigation.

    someone on this blog said “hillary Clinton is a woman so she worked 3 times harder to get to where she is today” loool. the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. This woman has been riding on the coat tails of her husband. if not for bill Clinton she will be no where.

    another person said she is the most qualified candidate with years of experience, another silly statement. what was her achievements as senator?, what were her achievements as first lady of the united states? what are her achievements as Secretary of state? 4 american citizens died under her watch. she kept valuable secret classified information on her server putting people and america at risk. the height of recklessness.

    some of u are clouded by emotion. hillary Clinton is a woman so lets support her. she is a woman so she will be kind blah blah blah smh and yes America’s election concerns us as nigerians and the world at large.

    I find this hard to say but i prefer donald trump cause he is just hot air. he says over the top shit but he doesn’t mean it.
    unlike hillary Clinton who is so sly like a fox . she will say anything to get ur vote. all the big cooperations have her in their pocket and they will control her when she enters office cause they are the ones sponsoring her campaign now. unlike donald trump, nobody can buy donald trump cause he is a billionaire. he doesn’t need ur money. #feelthebern

      Bruno we mostly don’t agree on issues but on this I agree. I am not a stupid voter, I do a lot of research before I vote. I loved bill as a president and thought if we have hillary Clinton it will be llike we have bill again (like most minorities think). But in the last few weeks am like let me do my thorough research to understand why this woman has so much scandals trailing her. There is no smoke without fire. It can’t all be lies. I didn’t hear any Obama scandals when he was standing for president why this woman so so wahala following her. So I digged deep did a lot of youtube research many backed with facts, I read some old news paper articles. I did very deep research on the overthrow of Gaddafi and the real culprits behind it and reasons why.

      I mean I searched, did my thorough analysis and gave concluded this woman is the devil herself. I still like Bill don’t get me wrong, but hillary it will be over my dead body to vote for her. I wish many voters did some research and not just sit there vote foolishly. Know your candidate. The real person.

      But honestly I will not vote for Trump either cos he is too stupid for my liking. A huge illiterate when it comes to world issues. He can’t even point Mexico on a map, . He is also a big bully. It’s like lesser of two evils who do u vote for. Stupidity can’t be a world leader.

      See what happened when America voted the last Republican idiot called bush. . I guess I’ll vote state only .

      Anybody questioning or downplaying Hilary Clinton’s achievement is simply an IDIOT. She’s a lawyer, businesswoman and one of the most active First Lady. She changed the game of women in politics. And yes, she’s the most experienced political wise and knows the game of politics. Tell me what achievement other senators and even presidents had before her. Yeah, she’s riding on her hisband’s name but do you think it’s a joke to be a First Lady, senator, Secretary of State then a presumptive presidential nominee. You think it’s everybody that can ride on just a name. If not bcos of her intelligence and how driven she is.
      I voted for Bernie Sanders simply bcos I prefer someone who is new and support a lot of his policies. But I respect Hilary Clinton for coming this far and being a successful woman in the field run by men.
      I know, this investigation is something she can’t run away from especially running against someone as manipulative as Trump.

    A wise man bridle his tongue, position of power comes with intelligence and poise,you need to have that tactics, be honest but say it in a nice way. Look at what Jeremy Corbyn is facing in UK he lacks tactics, speak when you need to, not shut your mouth but with wisdom which only God can give…Buhari has got that?
