April 28, 2016: Attorney General Loretta Lynch says the Justice Department hasn’t set a deadline to finish the FBI’s Clinton investigation because doing so would hurt its effectiveness.

Asked in an interview if voters deserve to know the result of the investigation before the Democratic primaries are over, Lynch replies, “People have to have confidence that we treat every case the same, no matter whose last name is involved, no matter how much publicity it gets. We don’t make predictions on the time because that essentially cuts off the independence of that and it cuts off the thoroughness.” (Bloomberg News, 4/28/2016)

She is the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. She says, “It’s an FBI investigation… we want to let it go through without politicizing it and then we’ll find out what the situation is and that’s how we still feel.” She adds with a laugh, “I mean, it would be nice if the FBI moved it along.” (CBS News, 4/29/2016)
