Just how stupid do democrats think Americans are?
Loretta Lynch, who just happened to be in Phoenix, held a private meeting on her aircraft with none other than Bill Clinton, who also just happened to be in Phoenix at the very same time.
PHOENIX – Amid an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of email and hours before the public release of the Benghazi report, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton.
The private meeting took place on the west side of Sky Harbor International Airport on board a parked private plane.
Former President Clinton was visiting the Phoenix area and arrived to Sky Harbor Monday evening to depart.
Sources tell ABC15 Clinton was notified Lynch would be arriving at the airport soon and waited for her arrival.
Lynch was arriving in Phoenix for a planned visit as part of her national tour to promote community policing.
ABC15 asked Lynch about the meeting during her news conference at the Phoenix Police Department.
It was a social meeting, she said:
“Our conversation was a great deal about his grandchildren. It was primarily social and about our travels.” She continued:
“We talked about former Attorney General Janet Reno, for example, whom we both know, but there was no discussion of any matter pending for the department or any matter pending for any other body. There was no discussion of Benghazi, no discussion of the State Department emails, by way of example.”
Right. And he “didn’t have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky” either. And you’ll save $2500 per year. I don’t believe her for one second. This wasn’t just a bad choice on the part of democrats. It was galactically stupid.
The impression this 30 minute chit-chat left with the masses is… “It looks like the fix is in,” said Steve Doocy on “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning. CBS News Justice Reporter Paul Reid calls this meeting “shocking, absolutely shocking.”
The event did cause some agitation among more sober democrats:
“I do agree with you that it doesn’t send the right signal,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) said Thursday in response to a question about the meeting from CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota. “She has generally shown excellent judgment and strong leadership of the department, and I’m convinced that she’s an independent attorney general. But I do think that this meeting sends the wrong signal and I don’t think it sends the right signal. I think she should have steered clear, even of a brief, casual social meeting with the former president.”
Doesn’t send the right signal? DUH! Lynch should have refused the meeting or held it in public or in the presence of reporters, since they were only talking of grandchildren and travels. Hillary Clinton claimed the emails she deleted were about yoga routines and wedding plans, but she is, for some reason, immeasurably desperate to keep those frivolities from becoming public.
On the one hand, this is an astonishing lapse in judgment for the Attorney General of the United States and all of us should be highly alarmed. On the other hand, Lynch’s stupidity has handed the GOP a potent weapon. Lynch should recuse herself from the Clinton email scandal and a special prosecutor should be named. If not, and Clinton is not indicted, it will be forever tainted. It could easily be argued that Bill Clinton could have promised Lynch a seat on the Clinton Foundation board or some other financial “incentive” in return for a favorable decision.
Lynch will appear to have been bought off and this will scream that the fix was in.
