FBI orders to reporters during secret Bill Clinton-Loretta Lynch meeting: ‘no photos, no pictures, no cellphones’
In the midst of the FBI and Judicial Watch’s dual investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State Bill Clinton and Attorney General held was has been described as an “impromptu” secret meeting in which we have been told they discussed grandchildren and golf and did not talk about the scandal.
This meeting, coincidentally, happened shortly after a Federal Judge ordered an expansion of the investigation, seeking to find out if there was a conflict of interest between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation after the revelation that Hillary Clinton left 75 meetings with political donors and friends of the Foundation off of her official calendar. One day after the meeting the Injustice Department sought to have the release of the emails related to this expansion delayed by 27 months.
Now we are learning, according to this story, that the FBI was present and instead of ordering the two parties not to hold a meeting which obviously could be a conflict of interest, the FBI had orders for the reporters who were on the scene. Here is more:
An Arizona reporter is saying that FBI agents on the tarmac during the troublesome private meeting at the Phoenix airport between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton were instructing everyone to put away their phones and take no pictures.
Appearing on Fox News’s O’Reilly Factor, ABC 15 reporter Christopher Sign said:
“The former president steps into her plane. They then speak for 30 minutes privately. The FBI there on the tarmac instructing everybody around ‘no photos, no pictures, no cell phones.’”
So the FBI was present, knew about the investigation, knew there was a conflict of interest, and probably knew about the meeting beforehand and the agency’s first reaction was to make sure the meeting was not made public. This meeting certainly does not seem impromptu to me.
Thankfully a local television station reported the meeting or Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch would have been successful in covering it up. It takes the willing suspension of disbelief to think this meeting had nothing to do with the investigation and judging from Loretta Lynch’s comments today I have to believe she knows the results of the FBI’s investigation and assured the former President he has nothing to worry about. The fix is in…
