Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday denied she had offered assurances to Hillary Clinton's campaign that the probe into her emails would not be extensive.

She made the denial in a letter from her lawyer, and pledged to cooperate with the Senate Judiciary Committee investigation, according to Politico.

In the letter, Lynch denied discussing the email probe with Amanda Renteria, a former Clinton campaign aide.

"Ms. Lynch does not know Ms. Renteria, did not discuss the Clinton email investigation with Ms. Renteria, and did not communicate to Ms. Renteria, either in words or in substance, that 'she would not let the FBI investigation into Clinton go too far,'" the letter from attorney Robert Raben said, according to Politico.

"Likewise, to the best of her knowledge and recollection, neither Ms. Lynch nor any representative of the Office of the Attorney General discussed the Clinton email investigation with Ms. Renteria, Representative (Debbie) Wasserman Schultz or her staff, or any DNC official."

The statement came in the wake of former FBI Director Jim Comey's testimony in June, in which he said he was uneasy with Lynch's instruction to call the Clinton probe a "matter," not an "investigation."

In June, President Donald Trump slammed Lynch, saying she gave Clinton a "free pass."
