American Center for Law and Justice Lawyers - Comey and Lynch Lied About Investigation

As we reported yesterday, Loretta Lynch may be in some trouble over her interference in the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

The Justice Department released a redacted version of talking points it created about last year’s tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, and claimed that the information could be withheld because of the government’s “deliberative process” privilege.

The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain numerous documents related to the meeting, and eventually had to sue the Department of Justice to obtain the documents, which included the redacted talking points.

Getting the documents un-redacted would require action from President Trump – and could possibly expose Hillary Clinton in the process. He has no reason not to, especially in light of tweets he’s made about the aforementioned FBI investigation even after the election


That was yesterday – now we have a bit more information on the new revelations, and they aren’t pretty for Lynch and former FBI head James Comey.

A legal team investigating the “surreptitious” meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on the Phoenix airport tarmac – just as Hillary Clinton was under investigation by the FBI over her improper email handling – says the FBI under James Comey lied about it.

“We have just obtained hundreds of pages in our ongoing investigation and federal lawsuit on former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton while the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI had an ongoing criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails,” says a new report from officials with the American Center for Law and Justice.

“The results are shocking.”

“First, the Comey FBI lied to us. Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any documents related to the Clinton Lynch plane meeting. The FBI, under the then directorship of James Comey, quickly replied that ‘No records responsive to your request were located.’”

However, from records that now have become available, “It is clear that there were multiple records within the FBI responsive to our request and that discussions regarding the surreptitious meeting between then AG Lynch and the husband of the subject of an ongoing FBI criminal investigation reached the highest levels of the FBI,” the ACLJ reported.


As you probably remember, Lynch’s initial defense was that the two talked about grandchildren and family matters, but how they managed to do that for thirty minutes seemed suspect to everyone. As per yesterday’s report, we know that the Justice Department had planned “talking points” (that are redacted in the document release) to use in defense of the meeting.

Why create talking points for an “accidental” meeting where they discussed grandchildren that the public almost never heard about in the first place? Perhaps because there was something more they were discussing?

They are full court scrambling with every thing that they have.

Obama ran one of the most lawless admins in history - never thinking that Clinton would not follow and protect him.

They have the media, the Special counsel and the the Intelligence Community all trying to stop Trump, yet he and we keep going merrily along.
