Attorney General Loretta Lynch should have never met privately on her plane with Bill Clinton earlier this week, MSNBC's "Morning Joe" panel agreed Thursday, as the meeting could have only been about one thing: the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
"You can't make this up," host Joe Scarborough of the meeting. "There's no way you can let him come on your plane and talk privately. ... These two people showed the most extraordinarily bad judgment. And where was their staff? Who was on the plane with Loretta Lynch to say, 'you cannot do this?'"
"She shouldn't have let him on the plane," Bloomberg Politics editor Mark Halperin said. "He shouldn't have wanted to get on the plane."
"There's nothing else to talk about but the one thing," show co-host Mika Brzezinski said, after wanting to know what Clinton could have needed to know that he needed to meet with Lynch privately.
The former president and Lynch met for about 30 minutes while her government plane was parked on the Sky Harbor International Airport tarmac. According to ABC15
in Phoenix, Clinton was leaving when he learned Lynch would be landing, and he chose to wait to speak with her.
Their meeting, coming just hours before Republicans on the House Select Committee on Benghazi released their report on the 2012 attacks in Libya, raised eyebrows, but Lynch told reporters they had a social visit
where they talked about her grandchildren, their travels, and his golfing.
"There was no discussion on any matter pending before the department or any matter pending with any other body," Lynch said. "There was no discussion of Benghazi, no discussion of State Department emails."
Meanwhile, Fox News' Greta Van Susteren on Thursday also lambasted Lynch and Clinton for their meeting.
"If I was Hillary Clinton, I'd take a frying pan to his head," she told Fox Business Network show host Maria Bartiromo.
She also attacked them for their meeting on her Twitter page.
