The meeting between Lynch and Bill was simply wrong. Legally, morally, ethically wrong. So that must mean a Clinton is somewhere close by. The Clintons act like a black hole, sucking in the unsuspecting or the arrogant who think they can withstand them. Even Obama has been damaged by HRC’s antics and has to scramble to stay above the whirling morass of dark gravity that threatened to suck him down. Anyone, no matter how narcissitic or self confident, can resist being damaged by the flailing debris inside their whirlwind world.
Even Obama learned that. First Libya, which he says he didn’t want any part of. Then Benghazi, where it seems HRC handled the optics with the video lie- and Obama went along- so now Obama has spent the last several years trying to avoid that nightmare. During the first part of the FBI investigation into HRC’s illegal server (there is no other description), Obama took the first steps of separation by telling her this mess was ON her! But that just didn’t seem enough. So now every revelation batters Obama. (Who deserves anything he gets, but at least HE should be responsible, right! Stay with that list, let him cast her adrift.)
There was a time Hillary and gang were smoother and harder to catch, but her hubris seems to have gotten the better of her conscience. People don’t remember, back in the nineties Ken Starr, doing his due diligence as a special prosecutor, stumbled into an old scam Hillary and associates had pulled off back in Arkansas- called Whitewater. He put out a subpoena looking for billing records that would prove Hillary was part of the scam, something she denied much like she knowing how to wipe a computer by saying “with a cloth?” Nobody could find the records. They had been spirited away by Cheryl Mills (yes SAME Cheryl Mills). Something like two years later, after all the dust had settled and everybody had “moved along” (as HRC likes to encourage) the records were found in the private room off the bedroom of Bill and Hill in the Whitehouse. Before that happened, a friend and confidant- Vince Foster- who apparently struggled with depression and was harangued by Hillary for being weak over the Whitewater controversy killed himself.
How many scandals? WND list most, but not all, it has been a constant grinding of metal to metal screeching like a drunk weaving back and forth in his car, along a crowded street full of parked vehicles. And it’s been going on for twenty-five plus years!! Back then, Hillary played the confused sweet wife of the President in public, trying to convince us she could not be that money hungry shrew that drove Vince to his death. People see Hillary now, but this was what she looked like back then.
Now, as she has aged, her desire to hide her Machiavellian personality has dwindled. She is mega rich and mega connected and mega protected, maybe.
The new kid in town his Obama, and he may not want to be tainted with her. Loretta Lynch was given her first federal job, a juicy one in New York, by Bill in 1999. Obama raised her to AG. Now she is going to have to decide if she wants to be sucked down into that same vortex as others have been. Over at PJ Media, Adams thinks the meeting between Bill and Lynch was a setup to find a way to move her aside and let another DOJ attorney take the hit when they decide NOT to indict HRC or any of her crony staff.
Whenever Bill Clinton gets on a plane to meet a woman, he’s usually up to no good.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch said her impromptu tarmac summit at Phoenix Sky Harbor was a purely social affair. Golf and grandchildren were on the agenda, she said — and not how a home-brew server crammed with classified information ended up in Bill’s basement.
However, the attorney general normally doesn’t meet with family members of a target in an active FBI criminal investigation.
Hillary is just that — a target in an FBI criminal investigation.
But you’d never know that listening to Attorney General Lynch. She borrowed the narrative of the Hillary campaign when she described the FBI criminal investigation as a “security inquiry.”
Downplaying the FBI criminal investigation is a deliberate communications strategy of the Clinton campaign. It’s a very bad sign that the person who must approve any grand jury referral has adopted Hillary’s dishonest language.
Many won’t believe Lynch and Clinton only discussed grandkids and golf in her cozy jet. But I do.
That’s all they needed to discuss for Bill to interfere with a criminal prosecution. Sophisticated insiders don’t need to use clumsy and explicit language. Merely having the tarmac summit interferes with the investigation, even if golf and grandkids were the only topics discussed.
The tarmac summit sent a signal. It is a signal to all of the hardworking FBI agents who have the goods on Hillary.
Maybe. Or it could be her giving him the heads up on the interview HRC is going to have with the FBI, or the final say that Obama is going to give. It was obviously a meet that was exposed by someone. Adams thinks it will give cover to Lynch has she kinda-sorta steps aside. Maybe.
But this isn’t 1999. Technology and the lack of loyalty from the new generation of liberals is tripping up the 1990’s version of the Clintons. Not that they don’t keep trying though. Here, John Kass points out that Bill was just being Bill and apply soft pressure.
But the meeting between Bill and Loretta had nothing to do with hair or race. It had to do with the subtle projection of terrifying power.
And with Hillary under investigation by her office, and with her boss, President Obama, having already endorsed Mrs. Clinton, Lynch made a terrible mistake.
She shouldn’t have talked to Clinton about anything. Instead, she should have said:
“Bill, may I call you Bill? I can’t have any kind of conversation with you in private. It would be wrong. But if you’d like to sit with FBI agents and talk about your wife’s illegal emails and how they relate to your epic bank account and your Clinton Foundation international slush fund, you’re more than welcome.”
But she didn’t. So she deserves to be made a public fool.
The problem for Democrats in all of this is that the Clintons are considered by most Americans to be liars. Not just pedestrian liars, either, but Olympian liars.
In Chicago the other day, Hillary Clinton acknowledged she has a trust problem and plans on working on it. She’s been in public life for more than 30 years, and now she’s working on it?
When news of the Bill Clinton/Lynch meeting became public, Republicans predictably skewered the attorney general, Democrats predictably defended her and Trump was predictably outraged.
Lynch bore the brunt of it. But what about Bill?
He’s the spouse of the Democratic candidate for president. He’s a former lawyer, Yale trained. Doesn’t he have any responsibility here?
I’d like you to imagine Bill — after the baby talk about grandchildren was done — looking at Lynch, biting his lip, saying something like:
“So, Loretta, what are your plans for the future?”
You wouldn’t need a neon sign. He’d mean a future with Hillary as president, Bill at her side, the two of them ruling the world with power to reward friends and destroy enemies once again.
The poet Maya Angelou said that “When someone shows you who they are, believe them; the first time.”
Bill and Hillary have shown us who they are. They’ve spent years showing us.
And now they want to show us again, and again.
