Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew well in advance of FBI Director James Comey's 2016 press conference that he would not recommend charging Hillary Clinton, according to information turned over to the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Friday.

The revelation was included in 384 pages of text messages exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it significantly diminishes the credibility of Lynch's earlier commitment to accept Comey's recommendation — a commitment she made under the pretense that the two were not coordinating with each other.

But wait! There's more.

Comey and Lynch reportedly knew that Clinton would never face charges even before the FBI conducted its three-hour interview with Clinton, which was supposedly meant to gather more information into her mishandling of classified information.

WIBC host Tony Katz spoke with William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection about the recent revelations about possible corruption within the FBI during his Tuesday broadcast. Click below to check it out:
