When FBI Director James Comey announced that he would not be recommending an indictment against Hillary Clinton, many people were shocked, but Ed Klein wasn’t one of them. He knew that Hillary Clinton had built an unbreakable chain of corruption that would do whatever it took to avoid an indictment. Klein’s new book, Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation exposes just how far the Clinton machine would go to protect Hillary.
On June 27th, 2016, instead of taking off from The Executive Terminal at Phoenix Sky Harbor, Bill Clinton’s plane came to a stop on the runway and returned to its parking space. A secret service agent had just alerted Bill Clinton that Loretta Lynch’s plane was about to land.
“Don’t take off!” Bill Clinton had instructed the pilot.
What would happen next would become one of the most talked about meetings to ever happen on a plane. Many called it harmless. Others called it what it was: dangerous.
Let’s talk about why former President Bill Clinton, husband of Democratic nominee for President would want to meet with the Attorney General of the United States. AG Loretta Lynch is the boss of FBI Director James Comey, who was currently investigating the former president’s wife for her private email server. The ongoing FBI investigation was already damaging to Hillary’s campaign, and the longer it went on, the worse it would get. That’s where Bill Clinton saw his opportunity to shine. After all, it was Bill Clinton who appointed Lynch U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, one of the highest profiled prosecutorial posts in the country—how could she refuse him?
A Clinton adviser confided in Klein, “He didn’t give a damn. He wanted to intimidate Loretta and discredit Comey’s investigation of Hillary’s email, which was giving Hillary’s campaign agita.”
If Bill was so confident going into the meeting, how did Lynch feel? That same adviser reveals in Guilty as Sin, “She was literally trembling, shaking with nervousness. Her husband tried to comfort her; he kept patting her hand and rubbing her back.” Lynch knew what the public would think about this meeting. She knew it would discredit the entire investigation.
Bill Clinton didn’t need to threaten Loretta Lynch to change the course of the FBI investigation. The meeting itself was enough to throw the investigation under the bus. With a secret plane meeting between Clinton and Lynch revealed to the public, there was no way anyone was going to take the Comey investigation seriously any longer.
Hillary Clinton’s chain or corruption expands outside of the State Department she oversaw to her husband’s personal plane and into the Justice Department. All it took was one casual meeting, discussing grandchildren and golf, to derail one of the most publicly anticipated FBI investigations in our country’s history. If Hillary’s chain of corruption can ruin the case James Comey was building against her, what can’t it do? Ed Klein’s new book, Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation, explores the depths of the Clintons’ corruption and reveals the truth behind it all.
