Obama's AG Meets With House Intel Panel

Obama's AG Meets With House Intel Panel

By    |   Friday, 20 October 2017 02:10 PM

Loretta Lynch met behind closed doors Friday with the House Intelligence Committee, about 16 months after President Barack Obama’s attorney general met with former President Bill Clinton while the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton’s handling of confidential emails, CBS reported.

Although no details of the congressional session were revealed, the intelligence committee was expected to question Lynch about her meeting with Bill Clinton aboard her private plane on the tarmac at an airport in Phoenix, Arizona, in June 2016.

At the time, the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton, then the Democratic presidential candidate, for her mishandling of thousands of emails while she was Obama’s secretary of state.

The committee also is investigating charges that Russia interfered in the presidential election and allegations that some of Trump’s aides held improper meetings with Russian officials.

Former FBI Director told Congress in May that Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton was one reason he took the unprecedented action of publicly detailing the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton and recommending the Justice Department not prosecute her. That action was one of the reasons that President Trump fired Comey.

"I'm not picking on Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who I like very much," Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "But her meeting with President Clinton on that airplane was the capper for me. [After that], I then said, you know what, the [Justice Department] cannot by itself credibly end this."
