Bill In Hot Water – Hillary Discusses Infamous Loretta Lynch Tarmac Meeting in New Book

In “What Happened,” Hillary Clinton discussed her husband’s meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on an Arizona tarmac.

In Hillary Clinton’s new book, “What Happened,” she says that Bill Clinton’s meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on an Arizona tarmac was simply bad optics and that “nothing inappropriate was said in any way.”

During the height of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices, Bill Clinton thought it appropriate to meet with Lynch aboard a private plane. Lynch described the meeting as“primarily social,” but Democrats and Republicans expressed concern about the meeting as it looked like Bill Clinton was trying to influence the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices.

FBI Director James Comey cited this meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton as the “moment he decided that the Department of Justice was not capable of an independent investigation into Hillary Clinton.”

This resulted in Comey holding a press conference to explain the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email practices.

“Comey decided to go ahead with the press conference because of supposed concerns he had with his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch,” Clinton wrote in “What Happened.”

As for the actual meeting between Bill Clinton and Lynch, Hillary Clinton wrote:


“Nothing inappropriate was said in any way, but both of them came to regret exchanging pleasantries that day because of the firestorm that followed. There’s no doubt that the optics were bad, but that didn’t give Comey carte blanche to ignore Justice Department policies and overstep his bounds. The implication that Lynch, a distinguished career prosecutor, was suddenly compromised and couldn’t be trusted is outrageous and insulting.”


“Unfortunately, that wasn’t Comey’s last – or most damaging mistake,” Clinton concluded.
