Appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper, Attorney General Loretta Lynch strongly countered claims by former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that the FBI is “deeply broken.”
AG @LorettaLynch says Podesta is factually wrong about FBI being broken. "I don't know where (he) is obtaining his information."

The Washington Examiner transcribed her comments:
“I allow him this opinion, but I disagree with that, if that is in fact the characterization he is trying to make,” Lynch told CNN’s Jake Tapper, who had asked if Podesta’s assessment — that the FBI was more concerned with Clinton’s emails than Russia’s cyberactivity — was accurate.
“You have to look at every investigation separately. You have to look at every case separately,” she advised.
Lynch also stated that Podesta would not know about an ongoing investigation since he is not privy to the facts and details of the case. Watch:

Podesta should have thought twice before throwing out baseless allegations against a major law enforcement agency.
