IG Report: FBI, Secret Service Planned Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting
As the American public continues to digest the revelations from the DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 500-page report, BizPac Review discovered a detail that has not yet been reported.
“The OPA (Office of Public Affairs) Supervisor said that he later learned that former President Clinton’s Secret Service detail had contacted [Attorney General] Lynch’s FBI security detail to let them know that the former President wanted to meet with Lynch,” page 203 of the report says. “Although Lynch’s staff was supposed to receive notice of such 204 requests, witnesses told us that they were not informed of the request from former President Clinton.”
The public was told that the meeting was purely coincidental, and that Lynch and Clinton discussed benign topics like golf and grandchildren. At the time, presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton was under FBI investigation for 33,000 deleted emails sent and received on an unsecured private server, and for smashing several government phones. The emails and hardware had previously been subpoenaed by the House Select Committee on Benghazi in March 2015.
Page 209 of the report suggests a coverup of the meeting.
“The OPA Supervisor said that there was a photographer outside, and he recalled telling the photographer that Lynch would not be taking pictures,” it says. “The OPA Supervisor said that he remembered telling the photographer that he (the photographer) needed to go back in his car.”
Further, a senior lawyer for Bill Clinton was blocked from advising Clinton against the meeting, which took place inside the cabin of Lynch’s aircraft.
“The Senior Counselor said that when she tried to go back on the plane, she was stopped by the head of Lynch’s security detail, who was at the door of the plane,” the report says. “The Senior Counselor said that she told him that Lynch’s meeting with former President Clinton was not a good idea, and that she needed to get back on the plane, but he still would not let her on.
The Senior Counselor said that she then asked him to convey to Lynch that she was advising that the meeting was a bad idea. According to the Senior Counselor, he told her, ‘All right, why don’t you tell her yourself,’ and finally allowed her to board.”
In April, Big League Politics exclusively confirmed that Clinton offered Lynch the Attorney General job in what would have been his wife’s administration during the tarmac meeting.
“Former president Bill Clinton offered Loretta Lynch the Attorney General job in a Hillary Clinton administration while secretly meeting with Lynch on an airplane tarmac, according to documents reviewed by President Donald Trump.
President Trump discussed the information with top lawmaker Rep. Ron DeSantis, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform committees. Big League Politics exclusively confirmed these facts with a U.S. Senate committee adviser.”
BLP passage ends.
Hillary Clinton was cleared of any wrongdoing in the email investigation by the Lynch-headed DOJ a few days after the meeting.
