Remember months ago when Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch had a private meeting at an airport, right as the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server was coming to a conclusion?
We only found out about it because a local journalist got a tip – and had he not, we would’ve never known about it. We were initially told that the meeting was coincidental – then later it turned out to have been planned and gone on for a half hour. It’s unlikely that they spent an entire half-hour talking about their grandchildren (a defense that was initially offered).
Less than a week later the FBI concluded their investigation into Hillary, and what do you know, she got to walk scot-free. Even if she didn’t, it’s likely that Lynch would’ve just let her off the hook anyway.
So what did the two really talk about? As the Daily Mail is reporting:
Hillary Clinton was never in any danger of prosecution for mishandling classified documents on her infamous homebrew email server, according to a book set to rock the election season.
The fix was in, thanks to Bill Clinton’s plan to ambush Attorney General Loretta Lynch when their private jets were at the Phoenix airport at the same time.
The former president told his pilot to abort a takeoff, according to Ed Klein in his latest book, ‘Guilty as Sin,‘ when a Secret Service agent told him Lynch was about to land.
One of Clinton’s most trusted legal advisers told Klein that he took a call from the former president. The New York Post published a book excerpt spelling out what happened.
‘Bill said, “I want to bushwhack Loretta”,’ the adviser told him. ‘”I’m going to board her plane. What do you think?”
‘And I said, “There’s no downside for you, but she’s going to take a pounding if she’s crazy enough to let you on her plane”.’
‘He knew it would be a huge embarrassment to Loretta when people found out that she had talked to the husband of a woman – the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party – who was under criminal investigation by the FBI,’ the adviser explained to Klein.
‘But he didn’t give a damn. He wanted to intimidate Loretta and discredit Comey’s investigation of Hillary’s emails, which was giving Hillary’s campaign agita.’
Bill Clinton ended up telling his Secret Service agent to call Lynch and set up a meeting on the tarmac.
