Attorney General Loretta Lynch tells us that her meeting with Bill Clinton aboard a private jet on the Phoenix airport tarmac was “primarily social”—you know, just two Democrats swapping stories about their grandkids and whatnot.
The nation’s top law enforcement official and the former president and husband of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee—who is under federal investigation—had a talk. Rather than conceding that such a private encounter is at the very least a conflict of interest, Democrats preemptively complained about the “optics.” Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del), for instance, told CNN that Lynch “should have steered clear” and that the meeting “sends the wrong signal.”
Conflict of interest by a corrupt AG usually does.
As stated in the U.S. Attorneys’ Manual, “The requirement of recusal does not arise in every instance, but only where a conflict of interest exists or there is an appearance of a conflict of interest or loss of impartiality.”
When it comes to Obama’s regime, there’s no such thing as impartiality.
But given the way this administration treats the law, we can safely assume Lynch will never recuse herself. And that refusal to recuse will give millions of Americans who already assume the Department of Justice will let Hillary slide no matter where the evidence leads quite a bit of evidence of corruption in the Obama DOJ. And if you’re Hillary Clinton—and you are truly innocent—Bill’s little get-together creates even more questions about your shady conduct. Mostly, though, if you want to know why Americans don’t trust their government, this meeting is a pristine example.
If anyone thinks justice will be served during Obama’s White House occupation, don’t bet on it. The DOJ is in his hip pocket, the FBI drags its feet and the GOP lacks the balls.
