FBI Finds 30 Pages of Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting Documents
A Spy Ring in the U.S. House of Representatives?
Sanctuary Cities Released Illegals with Assault, Drug, and Weapon Charges
Who is running the store at the FBI!?
First the FBI told us it had no documents related to the infamous tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton.
But now the FBI just told us that the FBI located 30 pages of documents related to the June 27, 2016, meeting, and it proposes that it produce non-exempt material no later than November 30, 2017.
This is in response to our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit ( Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:16-cv-02046)) filed after the Justice Department failed to comply with a July 7, 2016, FOIA request seeking the following:
The FBI originally informed us that it didnt locate any records related to the tarmac meeting. However, in a related case , the Justice Department located emails in which Justice Department officials wrote that they had communicated with the FBI. As a result, by letter dated August 10, 2017, the FBI told us: Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist. As a result, your [FOIA] request has been reopened
(Surprisingly, the Trump Justice Department refuses to disclose the talking points developed by the Obama Justice Department to help it respond to press inquiries about the controversial June 27, 2016, tarmac meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.)
On June 27, 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton on board a parked private plane at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona. The meeting occurred during the then-ongoing investigation of Mrs. Clintons email server, and mere hours before the Benghazi report was released publicly involving both Mrs. Clinton and the Obama administration. We filed a request on June 30 that the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General investigate that meeting.
The FBI is out of control. It is stunning that the FBI found these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit. We will continue to press for answers about the FBIs document games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately.
This case has also forced the FBI to release to the public the FBIs Clinton investigative file, although more than half of the records remain withheld. The FBI has also told us that it anticipates completing the processing of these materials by July 2018.
There is significant controversy about whether the FBI and Obama Justice Department investigation gave Clinton and other witnesses and potential targets preferential treatment.
The Obama administration extended numerous immunity agreements, including: Clintons former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills; John Bentel, former director of the State Departments Office of Information Resources Management; Heather Samuelson, Clintons executive assistant; Brian Pagliano, an IT employee at the State Department who serviced the Clinton non-government server; and an employee at Platt River Networks, the company that maintained it. It is not clear whether Hillary Clinton received some type of immunity.
In 2015, a political action committee run by McAuliffe, a close friend and political supporter of Bill and Hillary Clinton, donated nearly $500,000 to Jill McCabe, wife of McCabe, who was then running for the Virginia State Senate. Also, the Virginia Democratic Party, over which McAuliffe had significant influence, donated an additional $207,788 to the Jill McCabe campaign. In July 2015, Andrew McCabe was in charge of the FBIs Washington, DC, field office, which provided personnel resources to the Clinton email probe. Judicial Watch has several lawsuits about this McCabe/FBI/Clinton scandal.
Well be sure to report back to you when we get the new documents.
Off the Wall Ping!
Contact to be added.
The top levels of the FBI are probably 90% swamp.
First they lied.
Now, they likely removed the most egregious parts
of the documents TO PROTECT THE CRIMINALS and ISLAMIC
TERRORISTS and ARM DEALERS in the FB”I”.
Isn't this illegal? "..the agency hiding them in another lawsuit"
Agreed...President Trump only got rid of the top snake so far, there’s many still there.
I’m sure it is, many heads should roll.
It’s as bad as the State dept.
We need a good, old fashioned purge. Can’t do much about the civil service `rat SS cadre, but the real problems are the senior executive oberstuhrmfuhrers.
Once the Border Patrol is cleansed—State and the FBI. Then they can go out and get real jobs.
Like university eggheads, they’re always complaining about how much more money they could be making in the private sector.
Purge. Here’s your hat, what’s your hurry Obamanite?
Gohemert looks like a dumbazz but that guy needs to be Speaker of the House. I don’t think he has a cowardly bone in his body. WHO is going to get this mess straightened out and start perp walks all across the halls of Congress as well as every institution in WDC????????? This pi$$es me off to no end!!!! Is Wray the man for the job to clean out that crap hole called the FBI or is he just another puppet????
Over a number of years on FR, Ive seen many claims made by Judicial Watch but very little of substance comes from them.
I thought they said that they had been shipped to the Obama Library and were not accessible.
FBI another weak branch with little trust.
I agree on Gohmert, he could straighten things out in my view.
Have read some good things about Wray.
Before 1998, I respected and trusted the FBI. Not any more.
No, don’t ask why that year.
Gohemert looks like a dumbazz but that guy needs to be Speaker of the House. I dont think he has a cowardly bone in his body.
Agree. He’s a straight talker and get it done type of guy.
Not like “ Fake Eddie Munster “ Paul Ryan.....
Grandkids are cute, golf game is off EOF.
could this be why you don’t trust the FBI?
“The White House FBI files controversy of the Clinton Administration, often referred to as Filegate, arose in June 1996 around improper access in 1993 and 1994 to FBI security-clearance documents. Craig Livingstone, director of the White House’s Office of Personnel Security, improperly requested, and received from the FBI, background reports concerning several hundred individuals without asking permission. The revelations provoked a strong political and press reaction because many of the files covered White House employees from previous Republican administrations, including top presidential advisors. Under criticism, Livingstone resigned from his position. Allegations were made that senior White House figures, including First Lady Hillary Clinton, may have requested and read the files for political purposes, and that the First Lady had authorized the hiring of the underqualified Livingstone.
The matter was investigated by the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the Whitewater Independent Counsel. In 1998, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr exonerated President Bill Clinton as well as the First Lady of any involvement in the matter.”
