Last year Bill Clinton met with Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch while Hillary Clinton was still under investigation. While the leftist media claimed there was nothing to see, it led to a number of lawsuits by government watchdogs and the appearance of collusion and impropriety. Shortly after the secret meeting, the case was dismissed. Lawsuits asked for any documentation about the meeting but the FBI and DOJ insisted no such documentation existed.
That now appears to be false.
Not only do hundreds of emails exist, but they show that the DOJ was in a complete panic about the meeting. Public affairs were mercilessly bombarded with questions about the meeting but refused to answer anything. The American center for Law and Justice were able to uncover these emails.
It also shows that the Washington Post and the NY Times DID not want to cover the story at all:
Emails obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice show that reporters at the New York Times and the Washington Post told the Department of Justice’s director of public affairs at the time, Melanie Newman, that while they were writing stories on the controversy, their editors were making them do it.
“My editors are still pretty interested in it and I’m hoping to put it to rest by answering just a few more questions about how the meeting came about-who approached who, how did they realize they were in the same place,” the Post‘s Matt Zapotosky wrote on June 30, 2016, two days after the tarmac meeting.
In another email from the same day, the Times‘ Mark Landler introduced himself and said he had “been pressed into service” to write about the meeting.
Here are some of the more damning emails:
Lynch claims the meeting was cordial and they did not talk about anything of importance other than family and golf. But days later, FBI Director James Comey announced the investigation was over and they recommended no charges be filed.
