Spotlight Returns to Infamous Clinton-Lynch Meeting
RealClearInvestigations reporter Eric Felten had a chance to review the transcript of Lynch’s testimony before the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees, which took place behind closed doors last December, and concluded Clinton likely knew full well what he was doing when he boarded Lynch’s plane at Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix.
The timing was highly suspect with his wife, then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, just days away from being interviewed by the FBI regarding for her handling of classified information.
KNXV-TV morning anchor Christopher Sign, who broke the tarmac story, asked Lynch about the encounter the following day, and the then-attorney general confirmed she had seen Bill Clinton.
“Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels, and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix,” Lynch said June 28, 2016, while speaking at the Phoenix Police Department.
Lynch claims that she and the former president did not discuss his wife's legal woes.
