Not only are the rats jumping ship, they are throwing each other under the bus first. Comey and McCabe and Loretta Lynch and Comey have taken turns throwing each other under the bus.
Loretta Lynch has released a statement that throws Comey under the bus just before his interview on ABC. This could be interesting because it could cause him to reveal more dirt on her than he might have otherwise.
This could become real interesting real fast. But will ABC ignore Lynch so Comey can spend all of his time bashing Trump?
Loretta Lynch just torched James Comey.

Lynch’s partial statement via The Hill follows:
“Everyone who works for the Department of Justice has an obligation to protect the confidentiality and integrity of the work of the Department. That is why, at the critical early stages of this case, I followed the Department’s long-standing policy of neither confirming nor denying the fact of an ongoing investigation,” Lynch said in a statement obtained by CNN. […]
“This policy both predates my tenure in the Department and will live on long after the current debate is over,” she continued. “Any suggestion that I invoked this bedrock policy for any other reason is simply false.” […]
“It was a meeting like any other that we had had, where we talked about the issues,” Lynch said. “You know, we had a full and open discussion about it. And concerns were not raised.”
Twitter World reacted:
“McCabe, Comey, Lynch all throwing each other under the bus is interesting …”
“Lynch just threw Comey under the bus, after Comey threw McCabe under the bus to the DOJ IG. This is starting to get interesting…”
Comey has previously testified that Loretta Lynch tried to reframe the FBI investigation to a “matter.” Who knows what else he could reveal after Lynch’s missive.
Stay tuned, folks.
