Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said Friday that "Hillary is going to light Bill up over this meeting" with Attorney General Loretta Lynch aboard her private plane this week on the tarmac at a Phoenix airport.
"The biggest fireworks show in America this weekend is going to be wherever Bill and Hillary get together and sit down and have a conversation about this," Huckabee, the former two-term Arkansas governor, told Eric Bolling on Fox News. "I have a feeling that Hillary is going to light Bill up over this meeting.
"My guess is she didn't know he was going to do this — and when she found out, she was livid. This makes her look bad, makes Bill look bad, makes Loretta Lynch look bad.
"Nobody looks good in this thing," he said.
Lynch and former President Bill Clinton met for about a half-hour
at Sky Harbor International Airport.
The private session came the night before the special House Benghazi Committee released its report on the 2012 attacks that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens and two former Navy SEALs.
Hillary Clinton's, the presumptive Democratic nominee, remains under investigation by the Justice Department for her private email use. She was secretary of state during the Libyan assaults.
Lynch said Friday
she would accept the findings of her agency and FBI Director James Comey from their probe.
Bill Clinton appointed Lynch U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York in 1999.
Huckabee called the guffaw "a political gift" for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"It does now call attention to what many people will certainly believe is nothing less than an insider's game and the kind of corruption that is just making people furious and driving them to Donald Trump," he said.
But it also might prove to be an opening for Vice President Joe Biden.
"What she's done by saying, 'oh, look, I'll take whatever the FBI deals out,' she essentially is saying don't blame me if Hillary gets indicted," Huckabee told Bolling. "And I'm not sure that deep down in the bowels of the White House, there would be some celebration if Hillary did get indicted — because guess what that means: Let's bring in good old Uncle Joe to save the Democratic Party."
