There are two versions of the story of the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch. Version 1 is that the husband of a top official facing potential indictment just hung out with the top official who gets to decide whether his wife gets indicted just talked casually.
Former President Bill Clinton spoke with Attorney General Loretta Lynch during an impromptu meeting in Phoenix, but Lynch said the discussion did not involve the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email use as secretary of state.
Lynch told reporters that the meeting at a Phoenix airport on Monday was unplanned and happened while the former president was waiting to depart and walked over to the attorney general's plane after she landed there.
Lynch was traveling with her husband and said her conversation with the former president "was a great deal about his grandchildren" and their travels.
So unplanned meeting that went on for around an hour and just invoked talk about Chelsea's kids. Here's the real life version.
Christopher Sign, the anchor for ABC 15 in Phoenix who broke the story, told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly 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 cell phones.'”
When you have the FBI running around warning, no photos and no cell phones, those are specific instructions.
That means that they had orders to prevent any evidence of the chat from coming forward and those orders would have come from Lynch or one of her aides as Bill Clinton and his people have no authority to order the FBI to do anything. Which means that Lynch knew the meeting was wrong and tried to prevent it from coming to light. And you don't do that for a chat about the grandkids.
Which means that Lynch is also lying.
