While the FBI concluded that Clinton did not intend to hide records from the public, the agency's director, James B. Comey, testified about the investigation this month, Clinton's lawyers wrote.
Lynch's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee comes a day after House Republicans asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Clinton had lied to Congress.
"I believe it's important to do that", Lynch said.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch is repeatedly deflecting questions about the conclusion of the Justice Department's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
She told the committee specifically, however, that she did not discuss the e-mail issue or any other matter linked with the Justice Department when she met with the former president. On Monday, Goodlatte and Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) requested the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia investigate whether Clinton committed perjury before Congress.
Soon after the meeting was publicly reported, Lynch announced that she would accept the recommendation of the career prosecutors and FBI agents looking into Clinton's email use in a bid to quell concerns that politics were influencing the investigation.
The House Judiciary Committee is likely to ask about police interactions with minorities following a violent week that brought that issue to the forefront.
This means that the Clinton campaign can now go forward with the knowledge that there will not be any criminal charges.
"The recommendation that I received from the team, including director Comey, was the investigation be resolved without charges", said Lynch.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia halted a hearing and told Lynch that her refusal to discuss the investigation represented an "abdication of your responsibility".
The poll seems to be highly impacted by Clinton's email scandal as 82 percent of the U.S. voters think her use of private email server while as the secretary of state was "not appropriate", versus 15 percent who take an opposite stance.
"Judicial Watch, and other organizations, including Vice, were denied FOIA records in recent months because the State Department said they were part of the ongoing FBI investigation". It was the deadliest attack on law enforcement officers since 9/11.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) began his questions for Lynch by noting that Republicans spent more time in the hearing asking the attorney general about Clinton's emails than about shootings across the country, including the one that killed five police officers in Dallas last week. That followed police killings of black men near St. Paul, Minnesota, and in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch faced a congressional panel to answer questions about her decision not to bring charges against Hillary Clinton for her improper use of emails, APA reports quoting Anadolu.
Lynch: "Director Comey has chosen to provide great detail into the basis of his recommendations that were ultimately provided to me".
Lynch was more than happy to play along.
