Beyond peculiar and unheard of, for a cabinet-level prosecutor to meet with the spouse of a person under investigation, and yet Lynch met with former president Bill Clinton privately at an airport, even after asserting to reporters, that she never discussed cases with anyone at the White House…..or maybe Bill Clinton’s still got a touch of that old magic left in him……
In a recent interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch claimed that she has never had any conversations with President Obama concerning the ongoing Clinton FBI investigation.
Lynch was responding to questions concerning the fact that the same day Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, Lynch had met in the White House, in a private meeting with the President.
Lynch claimed that “I don’t get involved in whom the president endorses and I don’t have comments, as I said before, on any of the candidates.”
Lynch went on to indicate that she had never discussed the Clinton case with anyone at the White House and that it would not be appropriate to do so.
Lynch insisted that the FBI investigation was not a conflict of interest to her, in her relationship with President Obama.
However, news broke today, that the US attorney general, despite claiming that she would never discuss Hillary’s case with anyone close to the White House due to it being highly inappropriate, actually met on an airplane tarmac with none other than Bill Clinton, himself, the former president and husband to Hillary Clinton, who is actively campaigning on her behalf.
The attorney general must, in fact, know of the inappropriateness of a meeting with the husband of a high-ranking subject under investigation by her department, for a panoply of crimes which most experts say, are well beyond damning.
Why did Lynch meet with Clinton? The story of the private meeting comes to us from ABC 15 of Pheonix:
“PHOENIX – Amid an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of email and hours before the public release of the Benghazi report, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton.
The private meeting took place on the west side of Sky Harbor International Airport on board a parked private plane.
Former President Clinton was visiting the Phoenix area and arrived to Sky Harbor Monday evening to depart. Sources tell ABC15 Clinton was notified Lynch would be arriving at the airport soon and waited for her arrival.
Lynch was arriving in Phoenix for a planned visit as part of her national tour to promote community policing.
ABC15 asked Lynch about the meeting during her news conference at the Phoenix Police Department.
“I did see President Clinton at the Phoenix airport as he was leaving and spoke to myself and my husband on the plane,” said Lynch. The private meeting comes as Lynch’s office is in charge of the ongoing investigation and potential charges involving Clinton’s email server.
The private meeting also occurred hours before the Benghazi report was released publicly involving Hillary Clinton and President Obama’s administration.
Lynch said the private meeting on the tarmac did not involve these topics.
“Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix,” said Lynch Tuesday afternoon while speaking at the Phoenix Police Department.
Sources say the private meeting at the airport lasted around 30 minutes.
“There was no discussion on any matter pending before the Department or any matter pending with any other body, there was no discussion of Benghazi, no discussion of State Department emails, by way of example I would say it was current news of the day, the Brexit decision and what it would mean,” she said.”
