FBI reopens case of Bill Clinton-Loretta Lynch airport meeting documents

The FBI has “reopened” its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, according to the Fox News Channel on Wednesday.

The head of a nonprofit government watchdog announced that the FBI sent him a letter saying it had reopened his Freedom of Information Act case requesting documents regarding the secret meeting between former President Clinton and Obama’s Attorney General Lynch.

Originally both the FBI and DOJ claimed they didn’t possess any documents detailing the airport tarmac meet-up, but then recently the FBI released a batch of emails. Both the FBI and the DOJ said they are searching for more records.

Attorney and Trump legal adviser Jay Sekulow is also putting pressure on the FBI and Justice Department to release documents related to the Clinton-Lynch secret meeting in 2016.

A former U.S. federal judge had filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information surrounding the private meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton that occurred on June 27, 2016 at the Phoenix airport.

The meeting took place just days before the FBI announced it would not recommend charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Department of Justice (DOJ) apparently attempted to keep the meeting secret, as reporters on the ground were told: “no photos, no pictures, no cell phones.”

Cause of Action Institute President and CEO, as well as a former federal judge, Alfred J. Lechner, Jr. stated: “A private meeting between President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch raises serious concerns about impartiality at the Department of Justice. The announcement that the FBI will not recommend pursuing criminal charges against Hillary Clinton does not remove the public interest in knowing what was discussed.”

To understand the purpose of this meeting, Cause of Action Institute has requested all records, transcripts, or recordings of the meeting as well as the Attorney General’s schedule for June 26 – 28, 2016, including but not limited to pre- and post-meeting email which concern the meeting in any way.

“The [Clinton-Lynch] meeting raises serious concerns about the Attorney General’s impartiality in two pending DOJ investigations, one into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server to house official government records and the other into the Clinton Foundation. On July 1, 2015, there were conflicting reports about whether Attorney General Lynch will effectively [investigate the cases],” CoA states in its legal filing.

Meanwhile, former New York City Mayor and U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani blasted FBI Director James Comey for his decision to not indict Hillary Clinton in the email scandal, saying “this is the special exemption for the Clintons.”

“It would be unreasonable for a prosecutor not to go forward with it and almost an abdication of duty,” Giuliani told Fox News. “What was just laid out is what we would call a no-brainer in the attorney’s office that Jim Comey worked at. {By the way] he [Comey] was one of my assistants,” Giuliani noted.

“A reasonable prosecutor would have brought this case no doubt,” he added. “I don’t know how he ever, ever is going to be able to charge anybody in the CIA or the FBI who is extremely careless with top secret information, if he isn’t charging Hillary Clinton.”

Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Lechner was a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps, and received a J.D. from Notre Dame Law School in 1972. He was a judge on the New Jersey Superior Court from 1984 to 1986.

On April 8, 1986, Lechner was nominated by President Ronald Reagan to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on June 6, 1986, and received his commission on June 9, 1986. Lechner served in that capacity until October 1, 2001, when he resigned.

The CoA filing includes the following information requests:

  1. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s schedule for June 26, 27, and 28, 2016, including but not limited to pre- and post-meeting email which concern the Meeting in any way.
  2. All records, transcripts, or recordings of the Meeting.
  3. All records including notes and/or memoranda by or to the Attorney General in either the Office of the Secretary or the Office of Legal Counsel discussing the Meeting either before or after it occurred. This item includes any advice given or memoranda created in response to the Meeting or news of the Meeting.
  4. All records including notes and/or memoranda by or to the Attorney General in either the Office of the Secretary of the Office of Legal Counsel relating to the Attorney General’s decision whether to effectively recuse herself and accept the recommendation of career prosecutors and the FBI in the ongoing investigations relating to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.
  5. Any records reflecting the FBI decision or authority to restrict reporters and others on the ground from using cell phones or taking pictures.

    What is the criteria used to determine a crime that constitutes domestic terrorism ?
    Does an individual have to be (member of a gang, organization, etc.) ? What law or laws do to they have to break before they are deemed a domestic terrorist?
    This should be defined so that it is agreed upon by both liberals and conservatives. When future incidents occur by any group or individual of any party, affiliation, or philosophic beliefs, it can be officially be labeled as domestic terrorism and/or hate crime applied according with equal punishment.
    At the present time there are riots, businesses and homes burned, law enforcement people killed, police cars and other autos tipped over and burned. In some cases the rioters are told where to riot , then paid off to stop terrorizing cities. Few if any have ever been labeled and punished as domestic terrorists. Is this because there are no legal definitions of a domestic terrorist? If not, why ?

      Rocky, you make some excellent points. It appears that President James Monroe’s warning — “Where law ends, tyranny begins” — is coming to pass. The globalists are on the road to destroying the America we know and love, and replacing it with a third-world government.
