'There should be such an outcry that she has no choice'
While the nation focuses on the 2016 elections, the frustration over FBI Director Jim Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton server investigation still rages, now with calls for a different person to spearhead the probe.
“Do you know what it’s time for? A special counsel,” said former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Victoria Toensing, who is also a former federal prosecutor.
Toensing notes that such a move must come from the U.S. attorney general. And while Loretta Lynch has reportedly hindered the FBI’s investigation into Clinton, Toensing says public pressure can accomplish big things.
“There should be such an outcry that she has no choice,” said Toensing, who believes the push for a special prosecutor could be bipartisan.
“Republicans and Democrats alike should welcome a special counsel,” she said.
