A watchdog group has learned the Federal Bureau of Investigation tried to “maneuver” and cover-up the meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the airplane tarmac in 2016, according to Big League Politics.
According to a source who spoke with Big League Politics, the FBI attempted to cover-up the highly controversial meeting to shield Bill and Hillary Clinton.
They claimed they only spoke about golf and grandchildren, which many believe to be a lie.
The FBI works with numerous offices at the state, local, and federal levels when high ranking officials — such as a former president and the attorney general — are traveling.
The emails reveal the FBI planned for Clinton and Lynch to meet at the airport and speak privately.
We know they lied about the meeting being an accident, but the insider who spoke with Big League Politics reveals the bureau sought to suppress information and documents that exposed the meeting.
The source said then-FBI Director James Comey was aware of the operation and knew it raised serious questions.
Not only was this at the height of the 2016 presidential election, it was also during the bureau’s investigation into former Secretary of Stat Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
According to a statement from Judicial Watch at the time:
“Several officials write ‘we need to find that guy’ and that the Phoenix FBI office was contacted ‘in an attempt to stem any further damage.'”
“Another FBI official, working on AG Lynch’s security detail, suggests instituting non-disclosure agreements. The names of the emails authors are redacted. There are no documents showing concern about the meeting itself.”
The FBI told Judicial Watch it couldn’t identity any records involving the tarmac meeting.
But the FBI insider said the bureau notified Lynch and Clinton’s security units, including local police departments, about the plans for the meeting prior to it occurring.
The secret meeting was likely set-up to provide an update on the Clinton email scandal, which resulted in the FBI and DOJ giving Hillary Clinton a pass despite admitting she sent and received dozens of classified documents on her private email server.
This is just another chilling reminder about the kind of corruption that took place under former President Barack Obama and how Clinton was allowed to skirt criminal charges.
