Loretta Lynch created a storm of controversy when she met with former President Bill Clinton aboard her government plane while Hillary was still being investigated by the FBI.
Critics pointed out the meeting sent the signal the fix was in.
One watchdog group filed a lawsuit that could expose Lynch’s massive lie.
After the meeting, Lynch claimed she and the former President merely discussed grandkids.
No one bought that explanation.
The critics only increased their calls for an investigation when, days after the meeting, FBI Director James Comey announced he would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information on her private email server.
Lynch’s meeting raised eyebrows across America as speculation increased that the investigation was a whitewash and that Lynch gave the Clintons a heads-up about what was to come.
They pointed out Bill Clinton gave Loretta Lynch her first major appointment when he named her United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.
She held that position until Barack Obama named Lynch his Attorney General.
Now Judicial Watch is trying to get to the bottom of this meeting.
They have filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking all records to the meeting between former President Clinton and Lynch at the Phoenix Airport.
Judicial Watch’s President Tom Fitton wrote in Breitbart:
“Untangling the knots of corruption in the Obama-Clinton administration is hardly over, and we continue to pursue the truth diligently and deliberately.
In that regard, we have filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice for records related to the meeting held between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2016 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00421)).
We sued after the agency failed to respond to a June 29, 2016, FOIA request seeking:
- All records and/or transcripts of a meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
- All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Attorney General regarding the meeting.
- All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General regarding the meeting.
- All references to the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton contained in day planners, calendars and schedules in the Office of the Attorney General.
Lynch met privately Clinton on board a parked plane. The meeting occurred during the investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s email server and only a few days before the FBI interviewed her. Reacting to public outrage, Lynch quickly admitted that the meeting with Bill Clinton “cast a cloud” over the Justice Department/FBI investigation. The plane meeting confirmed to many that the Clinton investigation was wired. Sure enough, not long afterward, FBI Director James Comey called Hillary Clinton’s actions “extremely careless” but did not recommend charges.
The infamous tarmac meeting is a vivid example of why many Americans believe the Obama administration’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s activities was rigged. Now it will be up to Attorney General Sessions at the Trump Justice Department to finally shed some light on this subversion of justice.”
Judicial Watch previously requested the Department of Justice Inspector General investigate the meeting.
But the Obama administration stonewalled the request.
Now, this lawsuit gives the American people their best chance to unravel the corruption of the Obama administration.
