A Freedom of Information Act request from the American Center for Law and Justice has revealed some major, major news.
Last summer, Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch had a clandestine meeting on the tarmac at a Phoenix airport, and the only reason we found out was because of a brave reporter who happened to catch what was going on. Shortly after, Hillary Clinton was cleared of any wrongdoing by former FBI Director James Comey, which had pretty much everyone suspicious of what happened on the plane.
As it turns out, not only did Lynch and Clinton try to downplay the meeting by claiming to have talked only about golf, grandchildren and traveling, but the entire Department of Justice worked to keep the meeting under wraps.
The ACLJ has much more on this:
First, the Comey FBI lied to us. Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any documents related to the Clinton Lynch plane meeting. The FBI, under the then directorship of James Comey, quickly replied that “No records responsive to your request were located.”
Second, the hundreds of pages of (heavily redacted – more on that below) documents paint a clear picture of a DOJ in crisis mode as the news broke of Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with former President Clinton. In fact, the records appear to indicate that the Attorney General’s spin team immediately began preparing talking points for the Attorney General regarding the meeting BEFORE ever speaking with the AG about the matter.
Third, there is clear evidence that the main stream media was colluding with the DOJ to bury the story. A Washington Post reporter, speaking of the Clinton Lynch meeting story, said, “I’m hoping I can put it to rest .” The same Washington Post reporter, interacting with the DOJ spin team, implemented specific DOJ requests to change his story to make the Attorney General appear in a more favorable light. A New York Times reporter apologetically told the Obama DOJ that he was being “pressed into service” to have to cover the story. As the story was breaking, DOJ press officials stated, “I also talked to the ABC producer, who noted that they aren’t interested, even if Fox runs with it.”
It’s also worth noting that according to the ACLJ, the Justice Department redacted anything to do with the talking points being discussed between the media and department officials. Not only that, a statement was never made about the meeting because there wasn’t enough coverage of it, even though the coverage of it was actively suppressed by the DOJ and media.
Below are some of the emails the ACLJ got ahold of. Note how the Washington Post reporter wanted to “put the story to rest” for his friends in the DOJ:
So yet again, we have solid evidence of the media colluding with the Obama administration to deceive the public. Will anything come of it?
Who knows, but one thing is for certain; it’s pretty tiring seeing what these people got away with as our new President is under investigation despite there not being a shred of evidence he did anything wrong.
