Judicial Watch calls for an investigation into Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton secret meeting
The last several days have been pretty interesting on the email scandal front: we learned that Hillary Clinton left at least 75 meetings with political donors and friends of the Clinton Foundation off of her official State Department calendar and because of this a Federal Judge expanded the investigation into the former Secretary of State’s decision to use a personal email server during her tenure at the State Department. Then of course Bill Clinton held a private, spur of the moment meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch which was caught by a local television station and shortly thereafter the Injustice Department filed a motion in court which seeks to delay emails between Hillary Clinton and her aides concerning the Clinton Foundation for 27 months.
What a remarkable coincidence! After all how many times have we all run into a powerful, influential friend as she boarded a private plane and have taken the opportunity to discuss grandchildren and golf before takeoff? It happens all the time right?
Judicial Watch is responsible for uncovering most of what we know about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the watchdog group does not think it was a coincidence. They are now calling for an investigation into this meeting, here is more:
Judicial Watch today requested that the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General investigate the meeting yesterday between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President William J. Clinton on board a parked private plane on the west side of Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona on June 29, 2016, according to multiple press reports.
President Clinton is the spouse of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former Secretary of State, who is purportedly the subject of a national security crime investigation pertaining to the mishandling of national defense information processed by Mrs. Clinton’s personal server during her tenure as secretary.
Additionally, there are press reports that a federal public corruption investigation is on-going concerning conflicts of interest and abuse of official government office involving the financial “commitments” to the Clinton Foundation, speaking fees for President Clinton and former Secretary Clinton’s official acts. President Clinton may be a target of that investigation. [emphasis mine]
Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with President Clinton creates the appearance of a violation of law, ethical standards and good judgment. Attorney General Lynch’s decision to breach the well-defined ethical standards of the Department of Justice and the American legal profession is an outrageous abuse of the public’s trust. Her conduct and statements undermine confidence in her ability to objectively investigate and prosecute possible violations of law associated with President Clinton and Secretary Clinton. This incident undermines the public’s faith in the fair administration of justice. Simply stated, Attorney General Lynch’s June 29, 2016 meeting with former President Clinton creates the broad public impression that “the fix is in.”
Judicial Watch requests your immediate and thorough investigation of the facts, circumstances, and appearances of ethical, regulatory and legal violations by Attorney General Lynch in connection with her meeting with former President William J. Clinton – and that you report your findings and recommendations to the American public.
We all know what happens to people who have the dirt on the Clinton’s, did the former President make Loretta Lynch an offer she could not refuse…
