A giant bombshell just dropped in the quest to hold Loretta Lynch accountable for her conduct during the 2016 election.
The FBI has found a smoking gun.
And it has Loretta Lynch sweating.
Watchdog group Judicial Watch announced last week that the FBI found the missing 30 pages of documents surrounding Bill Clinton’s meeting with Lynch on her government plane shortly before former FBI Director James Comey announced he would not recommend charges be brought against Clinton.
Comey cited that meeting as one of the reasons he believed Lynch was compromised on the investigation.
Fox News reports:
“Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch said Friday that the FBI has uncovered 30 pages of documents related to the controversial 2016 tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The newly uncovered documents will be sent to Judicial Watch by the end of November in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, a spokesman for the group told Fox News.
Judicial Watch originally filed a FOIA request in July 2016 — which the Justice Department did not comply with — seeking “all records of communications between any agent, employee, or representative” of the FBI for the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server use, and all records related to the June 27, 2016 meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton.
“We presume they are new documents. We won’t know what’s in them until we see them, unfortunately,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News in an email Friday. “The fact they just ‘found’ them is yet another scandal.”
The FBI initially claimed the documents did not exist, but still managed to produce them, leading critics to question if there was a cover up in progress.
The heat on the Department of Justice to produce all relevant documents on the Lynch-Clinton meeting picked up steam after former FBI Director Comey’s congressional testimony.
He informed Congress that Lynch ordered him to refer to the investigation into Clinton’s private email server as a “matter.”
Comey testified this made him uneasy because the Attorney General was demanding he use language that synched with Clinton campaign talking points.
After this revelation, conservatives pointed to this fact – as well as Comey’s testimony that he found the Lynch-Clinton meeting problematic – as evidence Lynch was guilty of obstruction of justice.
The FBI’s discovery of new documents has only increased calls for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a special counsel that will include Lynch’s conduct as part of the investigation’s mandate.
Such an investigation could finally discover the truth surrounding Lynch’s actions during the Clinton email investigation.
Conservatives’ fears that she tried to bury any chance of finding that Clinton acted criminally were confirmed when Comey testified that she ordered him to employ Clinton campaign talking points when discussing the investigation.
Will this new document discovery finally force such an investigation?
