Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records on AG Lynch and Bill Clinton’s Tarmac Meeting Last Year Prior to Election
WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THE FINE WORK OF THOSE AT JUDICIAL WATCH …
Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice for the records on Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton’s meeting on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport prior to the 2016 presidential election and during the time in which then candidate Hillary Clinton’s email server was supposedly being investigated by the FBI. The FOIA request asks for all records related to the meeting held between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2016.
The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeking all records its has on the June 27, 2016 meeting between President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in her airplane, a meeting that occurred while the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, a potential national security crime.
Yeah, no conflicts of interest here or gross appearance of impropriety here, move on.
Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice for records related to the meeting held between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2016 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00421)).
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the agency failed to respond to a June 29, 2016, FOIA request seeking:
- 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 met privately with former President Bill Clinton on board a parked plane. The meeting occurred during the then-ongoing investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s email server, and only a few days before she was interview by the FBI. Lynch later admitted that the meeting with Bill Clinton “cast a cloud” over the Justice Department/FBI investigation. Not long afterward, FBI Director James Comey called Hillary Clinton’s actions “extremely careless” but did not recommend charges.
“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,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Now it will be up to Attorney General Sessions at the Trump Justice Department to finally shed some light on this subversion of justice.”
Judicial Watch requested the Justice Inspector General investigate the tarmac meeting.
WikiLeaks: DOJ Official Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik Gave Clinton Camp ‘Heads Up’ About Email Filing
HMM, AND YOU WONDER WHY THE DOJ DID NOT INDICT HILLARY CLINTON … ITS TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!
The Politico is reporting that a senior department of Justice official gave the Hillary Clinton campaign a “heads up” about new developments related to Clinton’s email use as secretary of state. From Wikileaks hacked emails, in May of 2015, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik emailed Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta to tell him about potential developments at an impending congressional hearing, as well as about a new development in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for the emails Clinton turned over to the State Department from her private account. The collusion and corruption runs deep between Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration.
What Difference Does It Make that I am Corrupt
A senior Department of Justice official gave Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman a “heads up” about new developments related to Clinton’s email use as secretary of state, according to hacked emails published Wednesday by WikiLeaks.
In May of 2015, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik emailed Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta to tell him about potential developments at an impending congressional hearing, as well as about a new development in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for the emails Clinton turned over to the State Department from her private account.
In an email from Kadzik’s personal account titled “Heads up,” he wrote: “There is a [House Judiciary Committee] oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify. Likely to get questions on State Department emails. Another filing in the FOIA case went in last night or will go in this am that indicates it will be awhile (2016) before the State Department posts the emails.”
Podesta forwarded the email to a cadre of top Clinton aides, adding: “Additional chances for mischief.”

WikiLeaks Emails Show that Obama DOJ Had a Cozy and Coordinated Relationship with Hillary Clinton Campaign on Email/Server case
HOW MUCH MORE PROOF DOES AMERICA NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE FIX WAS IN FROM THE OUTSET AND HILLARY CLINTON WAS NEVER GOING TO BE INVESTIGATED LET ALONE INDICTED? ONE BIG INCESTUOUS AND CORRUPT GOVERNMENT.
Emails published by WikiLeaks on Tuesday suggest the Justice Department inappropriately communicated with Hillary Clinton’s campaign as the Obama administration scrambled to deal with the fallout from her use of a private server. The emails show that Brian Fallon, Clinton’s campaign spokesman and a former employee of the Justice Department, was continually tipped off and alerted by individuals at the DOJ regarding Hillary Clinton’s email and private server crimes. The corruption and collusion between the DOJ and Hillary Clinton is just incredible. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump responded to the emails and said that the connection was “unbelievable.” That it is Donald, that it is. And if we had a media that wasn’t in the tank for Hillary Clinton, the news pressure would be so great, she would have had to have stepped down from running for president.
The Corruption, Collusion and Cover Ups of this Administration are sickening
An official within Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign appeared to have discussions with sources inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) about ongoing open records lawsuits regarding the former secretary of State’s emails, according to an email released on Tuesday.
In an email from May 2015, Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said that “DOJ folks” had “inform[ed]” him about an upcoming status conference in one of the lawsuits regarding Clinton’s private email setup.
The information about an upcoming court event would have been public knowledge and open for all to attend. And it’s unclear whether the people Fallon spoke to at the Justice Department were officials who regularly communicate with the public.
However, the fact that Fallon — a former spokesman with the Justice Department — remained in contact with anyone from the department is likely to renew allegations that the Obama administration maintained an especially cozy relationship with Clinton’s presidential campaign.
On Tuesday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said the connection was “unbelievable.”
The email “shows a level of collusion which calls into question the entire investigation into her private server,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The Department of Justice must release all communications with the Clinton campaign and her allies as soon as possible in order to definitively prove their investigation was completely above board.”
The email from Fallon was contained in a collection of more than 1,000 messages allegedly stolen from campaign chairman John Podesta and posted to WikiLeaks on Tuesday.
From Legal Insurrection … Remember the Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch “tarmac summit” and its gross appearance of impropriety? That gross appearance of impropriety cloud hangs heavy over Hillary and her emails yet again.
It’s hard to understand why Hillary’s campaign manager would be in direct contact with DOJ — that’s what Hillary had lawyers for. So something smells rotten.
There may be more revelations regarding the cozy relationship Team Hillary had with the Justice Department regarding the investigation, so stay tuned.
