President Donald Trump retweeted a story on Friday posted by the Washington Examiner pointing to emails that showed reluctance of The New York Times and The Washington Post to report the controversial tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

The Examiner posted Friday afternoon on Twitter:

The meeting took place during the 2016 presidential election. Clinton met with Lynch on the tarmac at an airport in Phoenix reportedly to discuss "primarily social" issues, Lynch later said of the meeting, the Examiner reported Friday.

At the time, Democratic candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was under investigation for her use of a private email server while serving as secretary under former President Barack Obama.

Days after the meeting, former FBI Director James Comey announced the investigation into Clinton's email server was closed and no charges against her were recommended.

The American Center for Law and Justice, a non-profit organization, published the emails Friday. One reporter for the Post, Matt Zapotosky, emailed the Department of Justice (DOJ) about the meeting because he said his editors "are still pretty interested" in the story, but that he wanted to "put it to rest."

Mark Lander, a reporter for the Times, wrote a DOJ official saying he'd "been pressed into service to write about the questions being raised" about the meeting.

When the story originally broke, the Times didn't publish any articles about the meeting for more than 24 hours, the Examiner noted.
