Explosive documents revealed late last week show James Comey’s FBI and Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice conspired to hide the illicit meeting between Lynch and former President Bill Clinton.
As you may know, Lynch and Clinton met in secret on an airport tarmac in 2016 even as Lynch was overseeing an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.
Ever since the meeting, the FBI, the Department of Justice and the mainstream media have been trying to cover up the meeting and anything to do with what happened. For example:
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, replied that “No records responsive to your request were located.”
The documents we received today from the Department of Justice include several emails from the FBI to DOJ officials concerning the meeting. One with the subject line “FLAG” was correspondence between FBI officials (Richard Quinn, FBI Media/Investigative Publicity, and Michael Kortan) and DOJ officials concerning “flag[ing] a story . . . about a casual, unscheduled meeting between former president Bill Clinton and the AG.” The DOJ official instructs the FBI to “let me know if you get any questions about this” and provides “[o]ur talkers [DOJ talking points] on this”. The talking points, however are redacted.
The documents also point to more involvement than was let on for such a coincidental meeting:
Second, the hundreds of pages of (heavily redacted – more on that below) documents paint a clear picture of a DOJ in crisis mode as the news broke of Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with former President Clinton. In fact, the records appear to indicate that the Attorney General’s spin team immediately began preparing talking points for the Attorney General regarding the meeting BEFORE ever speaking with the AG about the matter.
Despite the conspiracy, news of the meeting leaked out. However, the FBI and the Department of Justice both moved to suppress the story through their contacts in the mainstream media.
Third, there is clear evidence that the main stream media was colluding with the DOJ to bury the story. A Washington Post reporter, speaking of the Clinton Lynch meeting story, said, “I’m hoping I can put it to rest .” The same Washington Post reporter, interacting with the DOJ spin team, implemented specific DOJ requests to change his story to make the Attorney General appear in a more favorable light. A New York Times reporter apologetically told the Obama DOJ that he was being “pressed into service” to have to cover the story. As the story was breaking, DOJ press officials stated, “I also talked to the ABC producer, who noted that they aren’t interested, even if Fox runs with it.”
Two days after the meeting, DOJ officials in a chain of emails that includes emails to Attorney General Lynch herself stated that the media coverage of the meeting “looks like all or most are FOX” and that “CBS . . . just says a few lines about the meeting.”
Finally, most of the documents, which are public records, were heavily redacted. So much of the nuts and bolts of the interactions have been blocked despite no legal reason for the censorship.
Fourth, DOJ bureaucrats have redacted all the talking points, discussions of talking points, a statement on the meeting that was apparently never delivered because there was not enough media coverage on the meeting, and its substantive discussions with the FBI on the matter. They absurdly claim the “deliberative process exemption” to FOIA, which is only supposed to apply to agency rulemaking processes.
Furthermore, internet sleuths revealed that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used an alias to send secret communications about this case and perhaps other key matters while in office.
Like her predecessor, Eric Holder, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used an email alias to conduct government business, The Daily Caller has confirmed.
Several of Lynch’s emails were included in 413 pages of DOJ documents provided to the conservative groups Judicial Watch and the American Center for Law and Justice. Both groups had filed lawsuits for records regarding Lynch’s controversial meeting with President Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport last June 27.
Using the pseudonym “Elizabeth Carlisle,” Lynch corresponded with DOJ press officials to hammer out talking points in response to media requests about the meeting. The tarmac encounter drew criticism from conservatives because Lynch was overseeing the federal investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email system.
Why the Jeff Sessions-run Department of Justice is still helping cover-up the Lynch/Clinton illicit meeting is puzzling. Sessions could simply order the Justice Department to release all the information including the heavily-redacted sections.
Either way, it looks like there is a collusion case for tampering with the 2016 election . . . and it involves the Clintons, Loretta Lynch, Barack Obama and the entire mainstream media.
