In the wake of the daily release of emails from WikiLeaks, American voters are seeing first hand how back-door deals are done. Now we might get to learn more about one infamous example.
FBI Director James Comey informed Congress in a letter Friday that the FBI investigation into the use of a private email server by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had been reopened. Clinton had previously been investigated by the FBI to determine if she knowingly shared classified information using unsecured email while serving as secretary of state.
The original investigation was closed in July. But not before what many claimed was clear evidence of collusion between the Clinton camp and the Justice Department. Just one week prior to the FBI and Justice Department announcement that no charges would be brought against Clinton, Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with President Bill Clinton.
Now, the Independent Journal Review reports that a federal lawsuit has been filed by the American Center for Law and Justice to learn more about the secret meeting. Among other things, the ACLJ seeks additional answers from Lynch about the details of that meeting.
The ACLJ issued a statement about several ongoing lawsuits.
“We are currently in ongoing litigation against the Obama Administration over the Iran lie, inaction and genocide, collusion with the Clinton Foundation, and now the secret meeting between Attorney General Lynch and former President Bill Clinton,” the statement read.
Lynch claimed that the meeting with President Clinton was strictly personal.
“Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix,” Lynch said after the incident became public. She later acknowledged that the meeting was a mistake given the context of the ongoing investigation of Clinton’s wife.
As we learn more from WikiLeaks, the strong connection between the Department of State, Department of Justice, Clinton Foundation, and the Clinton campaign is being reinforced. News over the past week of the reopening of the Clinton email investigation as well as ongoing investigations into the Clinton Foundation for pay-to-play practices involving donations to the Foundation and access to the Clintons, only serves to solidify the views of many voters that Washington is corrupt and needs to be led in a new direction.
