Newly released emails from the DOJ show that one of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s top lawyers at the Justice Department helped edit Obama administration press statements about the infamous meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton on a tarmac last summer.
If you happen to go to the link above, you’ll see what we saw…”HEAVILY REDACTED” EMAILS…More like black boxes all the way down the email chain. Something was going on and these people DO NOT want anyone to see it!
YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS:
The same attorney, Paige Herwig, is now the deputy general counsel for Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. That panel is now investigating whether Lynch played any role in trying to influence the scope or intensity of the FBI’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
Get this: Prior to her work with Lynch, Herwig was a special assistant and associate counsel to Obama.
A FLURRY OF FREAK OUTS ABOUT THE TARMAC MEETING:
The emails show that on June 29, 2016, two days after the Clinton-Lynch meeting when the national news media was first learning of the tarmac one-on-one, Melanie Newman, the then-director of public affairs at the Justice Department, emailed her FBI counterpart to “flag” the media stories about the tarmac meeting that she noted were “gaining traction tonight.”
Justice Department talking points about the tarmac meeting WERE REDACTED!
A flurry of calls and emails between the White House, and DOJ were made.
Loretta Lynch’s deputy chief of staff contacted Comey’s chief of staff and counselor, Jim Rybicki, July 1 but the email string noting that contact is heavily redacted.
Remember that the tarmac meeting occurred at the end of an FBI investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers while secretary of state. The appearance of some sort of sneaky meeting between Bill clinton and Loretta Lynch was hitting the press and it was full spin mode for all involved.
WHY NO PRE-DAWN RAID OF LYNCH, COMEY OR OTHERS?
Before the tarmac meeting, Lynch would have been the official to determine whether to pursue criminal action against Clinton. But after it, she said she would accept the recommendation from the FBI and career prosecutors at the conclusion of their investigation.
THE FIX WAS IN…NO CHARGES!
Just four days later, then-FBI Director James Comey held a press conference to announce the findings that essentially cleared Clinton from a criminal indictment. Comey has said the tarmac meeting was a “deciding factor” that led to his decision to take on the role of announcing his conclusion that Clinton was “extremely careless” but not criminal in her actions.
The Justice Department talking points obtained by ACLJ are redacted in the email string.
Of course they are!
