Attorney General Loretta Lynch held a meeting with former President Bill Clinton in a Phoenix airport earlier this week, which she said was limited to small talk. But the reporter who broke the story came forward Thursday with more information.
The Daily Caller reported Friday that Christopher Sign of KNXV in Phoenix told Fox News that FBI officials on the tarmac told reporters: “No photos.”
Sign told Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly on Thursday: “She arrives, some people step off of her plane, 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 cellphones.’”
It looks as if conservatives were once again right all along – this “meeting” screams impropriety even if you believe that the two of them only talked about their grandchildren and golf.
Lynch and Clinton met on her private plane in Phoenix for 30 minutes. That’s a long time to discuss such simple matters.
Sign also told O’Reilly that none of the sources he spoke to could confirm that Clinton played golf in Phoenix. Although that topic is of no importance right now – Clinton could have discussed playing golf in the past – it could represent an interesting slip up on Lynch’s part.
Lynch’s FBI has been undergoing a major criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton over her private email server, which makes a private meeting with the Democrat presidential front-runner’s husband incredibly inappropriate. It doesn’t matter what they were talking about – they shouldn’t have met at all.
It’s unlikely that Lynch isn’t aware of the fact, which makes you wonder – what did they talk about and is Lynch really taking this investigation seriously?
There have been calls for Lynch to recuse herself from the investigation or even for the appointment of a special prosecutor (a bad idea at this point, as that would drag the investigation out for additional months, maybe even years), and in response Lynch promised to accept whatever the FBI recommends at the completion of their investigation.
