On June 30, 2016, Judicial Watch requested that the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General investigate the meeting yesterday between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The meeting severely undermined the already low public confidence in her agency’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton. While Judicial Watch is still waiting for records to be released, we did our own investigation leading to the release of redacted FBI talking points and concerns regarding the meeting (https://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-releases-29-pages-fbi-clinton-lynch-tarmac-meeting-documents-previously-withheld-justice-department/).
Lynch met privately with the former president on board a parked private plane on the west side of Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona on June 29, 2016, according to multiple press reports. His wife, Hillary, the former Secretary of State, was the subject of a national security crime investigation pertaining to the mishandling of national defense information processed by her personal server during her tenure as secretary.
Additionally, there are press reports that a federal public corruption investigation is on-going concerning conflicts of interest and abuse of official government office involving the financial “commitments” to the Clinton Foundation, speaking fees for President Clinton and former Secretary Clinton’s official acts. Bill Clinton may be a target of that investigation. Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with him creates the appearance of a violation of law, ethical standards and good judgment.
Her decision to breach the well-defined ethical standards of the Department of Justice and the American legal profession is an outrageous abuse of the public’s trust. Lynch’s conduct and statements undermine confidence in her ability to objectively investigate and prosecute possible violations of law associated with Bill and Hillary Clinton.
We requested the Inspector General conduct an immediate and thorough investigation of the facts, circumstances, and appearances of ethical, regulatory and legal violations by Attorney General Lynch in connection with her meeting with former President Bill Clinton.
