Lynch to Accept FBI Recommendation Regarding Hillary Email Investigation

Lynch is denying her meeting with Clinton had anything to do with Hillary’s emails. However, in the political world, no meeting is purely “social”. It all serves a purpose, especially when those politicians have a history of scandal.

Lynch has come under criticism after she met privately on board an aircraft in Phoenix with former President Bill Clinton. She described the encounter as a purely “social” occurrence that won’t “have a bearing” on the e-mail investigation and said: “I certainly would not do it again.” But she emphasized that she wouldn’t recuse herself from her role in reviewing and acting on prosecutors’ findings.

“A recusal would mean that I wouldn’t even be briefed on what the findings were, or what the actions going forward would be,” Lynch said. “While I don’t have a role in those findings and coming up with those findings or making those recommendations as to how to go forward, I’ll be briefed on it and I will be accepting their recommendations.”

Lynch and her aide both emphasized the case would be handled in the usual manner, despite its high-profile political stakes and the meeting with Bill Clinton. The usual manner includes the attorney general showing strong deference to her staff recommendations, while reserving the right to overturn their proposal.

Donald Trump accused the Clintons of conspiring to arrange the meeting with Lynch.

“Bill’s meeting was probably initiated and demanded by Hillary,” the presumptive Republican nominee for president said in a Twitter posting. “Does anybody really believe that meeting was just a coincidence?”

The probe into Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state has cast a shadow over her presidential campaign. The investigation continues even as Clinton is poised to accept the Democratic presidential nomination later this month.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest believes that Lynch has been “forthcoming” about her meeting with the former president, and he even acknowledged their thirty year history. Apparently he believes that we can trust Lynch to do the right thing. Of course we can . . . nothing but good things have come from trusting this administration . . . not!
