Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on a Phoenix tarmac weeks before the presidential election last year. You’re well aware of the story by now.
More than likely what happened is Lynch agreed to not prosecute Hillary over her email server mishandlings in exchange for staying on as AG through Clinton’s first term. Now, that story will more than likely never be proven, but who are we kidding?
Just a week after the Loretta/Bill meeting, Hillary was cleared of any wrongdoing. So, there you go.
Now, Lynch is set to be grilled on Capitol Hill regarding her involvement in influencing the 2016 race, per Washington Times:
The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.
In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”
Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.

Though the FBI told Judicial Watch that it did not have records related to the meeting, the Justice Department revealed in response to a separate lawsuit filed by the watchdog that some of its officials had been in contact with FBI officials about the Clinton-Lynch encounter.
In August, the Justice Department released emails showing some of its officials exchanging emails with the FBI regarding the meeting. And in a July 1, 2016, email, Justice Department official Caroline Pokomy told colleagues that “FBI is asking for guidance” on the controversy.
What do you make of this? Do you think we’ll learn anything about Lynch’s influence, or will she skate?
