Dick Morris: FBI Move 'Corrupt Bargain' for Lynch to Keep Her Job

Political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that the FBI's decision to not recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her private email use amounted to "a corrupt bargain" so that Attorney General Loretta Lynch can keep her job should the former first lady win the presidency in November.

Referencing a Sunday report in The New York Times saying that Clinton might extend Lynch's job, Morris told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth that "coming after the meeting between Lynch and Bill is as close to a sales receipt on a bribe that you can imagine."

Morris is the co-author of the new book, "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary Clinton."

The June 27 meeting between Lynch and former president Bill Clinton occurred aboard her private plane on the tarmac at a Phoenix airport. The session lasted 39 minutes.

"Obviously, Lynch met with Clinton by prearrangement," Morris began. "Obviously, it's not coincidental.

"Obviously in the meeting, Lynch told Bill: 'Everything's OK. She's not going to be indicted.'

"Probably, Lynch coached some of Hillary's replies so they would be exactly what the FBI needed to hear [when investigators interviewed her Saturday] to arrive at that conclusion.

"Then, I'll bet you at the end of that meeting, Bill Clinton shook hands with Loretta Lynch — taking her hand in both of his — and said: 'Loretta, I just want you to know how proud I am of you ever since I appointed you. I just want you to know how Hillary and I think you have done a wonderful job as attorney general — and we hope you will be able to continue to serve with us in the new administration.'"

Then, two days later Clinton's aides were quoted by the Times as saying she may re-appoint Loretta Lynch, Morris said.

"Lynch only had four more months on the job, so her first priority was to keep her job," he told Hayworth. "She obviously did that.

"This is a corrupt bargain."

Morris is author of the new book "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary"(Humanix) with Eileen McGann, available at both Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
