Snakes On A Plane:

...Attorney General Lynch goes to great lengths to walk through the parseltongue politispeak surrounding her meeting with Bill Clinton.

Pay attention to the phrases she is using. Specifically note the frequency of: “raises questions and concerns”, and “casts a shadow over how this case may be perceived”. Those phrases alone make the ethical case for recusal....

Lynch, a political appointee, will not recuse herself because that would mean she would be cut out of the loop, and the information to the Clinton camp -via the White House- would go dark.

President Obama and Hillary Clinton would lose their source to give them information on how the investigation is going. They would lose the advance notice. They would lose any control over what would be coming toward them.

That’s the problem.

That’s why Loretta Lynch will not recuse herself. (Read the rest at Conservative Treehouse)

There are two versions of the story of the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch. Version 1 is that the husband of a top official facing potential indictment just hung out with the top official who gets to decide whether his wife gets indicted just talked casually.
Former President Bill Clinton spoke with Attorney General Loretta Lynch during an impromptu meeting in Phoenix, but Lynch said the discussion did not involve the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email use as secretary of state.

Lynch told reporters that the meeting at a Phoenix airport on Monday was unplanned and happened while the former president was waiting to depart and walked over to the attorney general's plane after she landed there.

Lynch was traveling with her husband and said her conversation with the former president "was a great deal about his grandchildren" and their travels.
So unplanned meeting that went on for around an hour and just invoked talk about Chelsea's kids. Here's the real life version.
Christopher Sign, the anchor for ABC 15 in Phoenix who broke the story, told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly Thursday, “She arrives, some people step off of her plane, the former president steps into her plane. They then speak for 30 minutes privately, the FBI there on the tarmac instructing everybody around, ‘no photos, no pictures, no cell phones.'”
When you have the FBI running around warning, no photos and no cell phones, those are specific instructions.

That means that they had orders to prevent any evidence of the chat from coming forward and those orders would have come from Lynch or one of her aides as Bill Clinton and his people have no authority to order the FBI to do anything. Which means that Lynch knew the meeting was wrong and tried to prevent it from coming to light. And you don't do that for a chat about the grandkids.

Which means that Lynch is also lying.

Bill Clinton is always looking for an edge and his meeting with the chief law enforcement officer of the United States just days before an FBI interrogation of his wife over a criminal investigation is subliminal and yet, to the point: if my wife is elected President, you get whatever you want....
