from Bill Still
lass=”” >According to reports in both the Washington Post and the New York Times, Attorney General Loretta Lynch will announce today that she will accept whatever recommendations career prosecutors and the FBI Director make relating to Hillary Clinton’s “personal email server.”
According to the Times:
“Her decision removes the possibility that a political appointee will overrule investigators in the case.”
Interestingly, the Times does not mention Lynch’s stance on the myriad of other potential crimes that the Clintons could face, such as influence peddling at the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
According to the Daily Caller, Bill Clinton’s private visit to Lynch’s jet may have been to discuss a plea deal for both he, his daughter, and Hillary. Of course, this would imply that Clinton had been given classified information regarding the probable outcome of the investigation.
Bill Clinton has been a principle player at the Foundation – an entity that has taken in hundreds of millions of dollars of donations in what some charge is a pay-for-play scam.
Former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova told the Daily Caller News Foundation that Bill Clinton:
“… is at least a witness in two criminal investigations, [and] probably a subject in two criminal investigations.”
DiGenova said that Bill Clinton’s meeting with the AG at a private section of the Phoenix Airport was a violation of Justice Dept. policy:
“Bill Clinton, according to the department, is a person of interest. What the hell is she doing meeting with a person of interest, no matter what the reason.”
DiGenova then implied that Lynch had lied about the circumstances of the meeting – a meeting all parties tried to hide from the public.
“There is no reason to believe her representation about what transpired in that conversation. The whole set of circumstances surrounding how they met on the tarmac, in a plane with no witnesses, is simply appalling.”
This is significant because Lynch has asserted that the meeting was a random, accidental event, despite rumors are circulating that the meeting was set up by telephone calls in advance.
DiGenova also noted that Lynch was first appointed by Bill Clinton to the coveted U.S. attorney post for the Eastern District of New York in 1999. This position oversees prosecutions of some of the wealthiest and most influential people in the world.
“All the more reason not to meet with him,” said DiGenova.
