Judicial Watch Sues For Info on Bill Clinton's Plane Meeting With Loretta Lynch

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has issued a lawsuit to the Department of Justice seeking information about the June 27, 2016 meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch on her private plane in Phoenix. As a reminder, the meeting took place in secret just days before the FBI announced a non-indictment for former Secretary of State and Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of top secret information on a private email server. 

Here's what Judicial Watch is looking for: 

-All records and/or transcripts of a meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
-All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Attorney General regarding the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
-All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General regarding the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
-All references to the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton contained in day planners, calendars and schedules in the Office of the Attorney General.

Lynch was caught off guard when a local Phoenix reporter asked her about the meeting at a press conference. She claimed at the time the discussion with the former President, which lasted 30 minutes, was simply about golf and grandchildren. After Hillary Clinton lost the White House to Donald Trump in November, Lynch said the meeting was regrettable.

“The infamous tarmac meeting between President Clinton and AG Lynch is a vivid example of why many Americans believe the Obama administration’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton was rigged,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement about the new lawsuit. “Now it will be up to Attorney General Sessions at the Trump Justice Department to finally shed some light on this subversion of justice.”
