One year ago today Bill Clinton Secretly Met Loretta Lynch – and everything changed

Set in motion events that may have cost Hillary the election and Comey his job, now Lynch is under investigation

Today is the one-year anniversary of the meeting on an airplane on a tarmac in Phoenix between then Attorney General and Bill Clinton, the husband of the presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Hillary Clinton. Hillary was under investigation, at the time, by the FBI and Justice Department for her home email server used to handle official State Department business, including as we now know, classified information.

The meeting was not announced. It was discovered. By a local news crew.

Only then was the meeting officially disclosed. Lynch said they mostly discussed grandchildren.

ABC News, weeks later, obtained airport video documenting the meeting:

Our first post was on June 29, 2016, Gross appearance of impropriety in AG Lynch private meeting with Bill Clinton:

What do you call an Attorney General who meets privately with the husband of a person under FBI investigation, and only discloses it when asked?

Loretta Lynch….

Neither Lynch nor Bill Clinton are dummies. They both know that such a private meeting creates the appearance of impropriety regardless of what was discussed. Bill Clinton’s wife is being investigated by the FBI — why do you think he dropped in for a chat with Lynch?

Of course they didn’t discuss the case. They didn’t need to.

If there was no appearance of impropriety, why did Lynch wait until a local news crew, apparently tipped off, asked her about it?

It feeds a narrative of the Clintons acting like the fix is in, with Hillary repeatedly bragging that there is no way she’s going to be indicted.

The tarmac meeting set a number of events in motion that would shake the campaign, and remain issues.

Then FBI Director James Comey, in light of the seeming impropriety of the meeting, took over the role that DOJ normally would play.

While Lynch didn’t officially recuse herself, Comey took it on himself to announce that there would be no charges against Hillary Clinton.

He would later testify that the meeting “made me worry that the department leadership could not credibly complete the investigation.”

It also led to Comey’s letter just before the election announcing the investigation was restarted:

The tarmac meeting, in Comey’s word, destroyed the credibility of DOJ, forcing him to act:

When Comey testified, after his firing, that Lynch told him not to use the term “investigation” when referring to the investigation of Hillary, that tarmac meeting once again became the context of possible collusion by Lynch to help Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Even Democrats are suggesting an investigation of Lynch may be needed:

Judicial Watch has sued to obtain records regarding the meeting on the airplane.

With all this hindsight, the secret meeting was the best thing that could have happened. It smoked out possible DOJ bias in favor of Hillary, and exposed so much of what people hate about how D.C. operates.

Seems like we should be able to compel their bodyguards to testify…. they won’t, but they should.

I have read speculation that there had to be audio of the meeting.

Two attorneys, one a former president, the other the AG at the time, knew damn well their meeting violated at least ethical prohibitions against the appearance of impropriety even if they discussed yoga and the Redskins upcoming season. I don’t think they risk an ethics violation for nothing. Call me crazy, but I think they talked about Hillary’s pre-election legal vulnerabilities and made a little plan that if it worked, made silly ethics violations well worth any risk. Crazy talk or what?*

I hope Loretta Lynch kept her receipts.

you mean they weren’t talking about the FBI’s security review of the server’s wiped with a cloth?

After decades of successfully getting what he wanted ….no master the cost to others……Clinton confidently pushed his way with Lynch. They both knew the stakes. This time his winning ways faltered. The question is whether the Democrat party will have the ability to absorb the damage and has enough deep state minions to snafu the coming firestorm. The Clinton magic is faded. However, the Dems must protect their Black base. Obama, Lynch and Holder. They represent the new Party where whites go to the back of the bus. Harris and Booker are waiting in the background….Warren is a white afterthought now.

JUNE 27.
The first big Clinton holiday is June 27, CLINTON ARIZONA DAY.

That’s the day we all put out the Arizona sunburst flag to remember Bill Clinton’s June 27, 2016, accidental secret meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in her airplane on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

On this day this year, all of us will get together secretly with the prosecutor investigating our closest relative and talk about golf and grandchildren.

It was definitely one of the most pivotal moments of the campaign which helped decide a lot of votes last November. People are sick of the constant corruption in D.C. and that meeting highlighted one of the worst aspects of it: it gave the appearance of a former president attempting to influence an investigation into his wife who was currently campaigning to be president. An investigation that had charges actually been filed would have not only sunk her campaign but also likely put her behind bars for the rest of her life given the seriousness of the allegations and her age.

    Her campaign was already sunk…what we didn’t get (or haven’t got yet) is HRC behind bars. But as they say, all good things come to those who wait 🙂

Why don’t they post their grandchildren’s photos on the internet?
What do two democrats with Zero integrity add up to? ZERO…..

In certain countries (I wouldn’t name Russia, North Korea) these two clowns would be shot. Oh, what a wonderful country we live in. Are there any republicans with a “set of balls” to open this meeting up for inspection?????

I also think that the “grabbing” tape could not be milked for all it was worth because of Bill’s past crimes.They tried and Trump counter punched with Bill’s victims and it faded away.
He never wanted her to win, IMO, and his sleaze may have been the final nail in her coffin along with her stumbling and falling in New York..

One little point here. Why should we assume that Comey took it “upon himself” to announce that there would be no charges against HRC? The only one who has said that is Comey and it is becoming more and more clear that his statements should be taken with a huge grain of salt.

I am an elected minor county official in liberal Southern California. Out annual county government and bi-annual state ethics training cover this sort of obvious conflict. The only possible basis of the Lynch/Clinton meeting is deliberate violation of the most basic ethical guidelines. We all ought to be quite concerned, actually, that corruption has reached the top cop and permeates even the FBI. Yet we dismiss it while talking about how bad Putin’s government probably is!

As damning as Lynch’s direction to Comey regarding “matter” vs “investigation” was the cold icy glare the AG gave him when Comey showed her the email doc that damned Hil. “Are we done here?”

Interesting how CNN, the NY Times, the WaPo and the rest of the media have absolutely no interest in covering scandals and wrong doing that involves Democrats, although this pales in comparison to Fast and Furious.

Lynch was just a ” Mouthpiece,” for Holder. He was coaching her from behind the ” Curtains.” She was totally unqualified. For that job to start with. To meet with ” Mr Sleezeball,” to start with showed very poor decision & ethics decision move. What really hurt HRC, was her total ” Lack of Accomplishments,” even though she used every trick in the book to try to get elected. Afterall, she was promised the Presidency in ’08, after Obama got thru his “Damage Run.”

The reporter at ABC15 who caught this act of corruption on the tarmac and exposed it should have a statue erected in his/her likeness on the Capital Mall right beside one of Mary Jo Kopechne.

This episode remains inexplicable. Crooked, certainly; but what actually required such a heavy-handed legal faux pas?

If Billy Jeff was just telling Lynch what munificent rewards she could expect from Madame President, a personal meeting hardly seems necessary. Mail, e-mail, phone, courier, or ordinary intermediary would be able to do that without arousing undue suspicion. No, some sort of sensitive negotiation was apparently necessary. Even that could have been conducted by phone … unless Billy Jeff thought that his personal, on-the-spot persuasion was vital. But what? Did he first need to determine, in person, where Lynch’s loyalties lay? As Obama’s creature, she can’t automatically be assumed to have entirely benign inclinations toward Hillary.

Very odd. Billy Jeff, though crooked as the day is long and as big a sleazebag as ever haunted Washington, is no idiot; something made him run the obvious risk of a PR disaster.
