Attorney General Loretta Lynch has found herself in hot water this week after a federal lawsuit was filed against her demanding she give details of a meeting she had with Bill Clinton days before she was to decide on his wife’s fate.
The meeting occurred last June, barely a week before Lynch’s Department of Justice dropped their probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Daily Mail reported that the The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) filed the lawsuit against the Department of Justice on Wednesday requesting more information on the meeting, which led to Lynch immediately stepping aside from the current Clinton investigation.
Lynch met with former president Clinton on June 27 on the tarmac of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International airport, Arizona, when he delayed his departure time in order to talk to her. At that time, she was supposed to be deciding whether or not to proceed with charging Hillary over her unauthorized server arrangements while she was Secretary of State.
“Don’t take off!” the former president shouted after a Secret Service agent told him Lynch was about to land, according to Ed Klein in his book “Guilty as Sin.” Klein added that Clinton hoped to “bushwhack” Lynch and discredit the server investigation.
The two proceeded to meet for a half an hour. Afterwards, Lynch claimed their meeting was purely social.
“Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix,” she told reporters.
However, nobody was buying it.
The ACLJ wants more information on this meeting, and is also suing the Obama administration, which it criticized for it’s “arrogance and inappropriate actions.”
“This Administration has gone out of its way to hide information from the American public – information that is extremely troubling,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ in a statement. “The stakes are high. The American people deserve a Justice Department with integrity.”
