Americans are still abuzz with speculation about the true purpose of the private meeting earlier this week between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton. Even Democrats, who are used to swallowing large loads of bovine excrement for the sake of furthering their ideological agendas, aren’t buying that the attorney general and former president — who just happens to be the husband of a woman currently being investigated by the FBI as she seeks the White House — just had a pleasant chat about their grandchildren after Clinton specifically waited for Lynch to arrive so he could approach her.
Speculation immediately jumped to the notion of Clinton and Lynch speaking about Hillary Clinton’s potential indictment, with some suggesting Clinton’s purpose may have been to persuade (to put it nicely) Lynch NOT to indict his wife and therefore complicate her chances at the presidency — and likely “complicate” Lynch’s own future in the Democrat machine.
Now today, we’re learning of what may have been another potential thread of the conversation between Attorney General Lynch and the former president who wishes to become the first “First Husband.”
As the Daily Caller reports:
Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court late Wednesday seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.
If the court permits the delay, the public won’t be able to read the communications until October 2018, about 22 months into her prospective first term as President. The four senior Clinton aides involved were Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Michael Fuchs, Ambassador-At-Large Melanne Verveer, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin.
The State Department originally estimated that 6,000 emails and other documents were exchanged by the aides with the Clinton Foundation. But a series of “errors” the department told the court about Wednesday evening now mean the total has grown to “34,116 potentially responsive documents.”
During Clinton’s four years as America’s chief foreign diplomat, her aides communicated with officials at the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings where Bill Clinton was formerly both a client and paid consultant, on the average of 700 times each month, according to the Justice Department filing.
The mind reels with what the aides to the United States’ Secretary of State might have been communicating about with the Clinton Foundation — you know, the one that’s received tens of millions in donations from foreign governments, such as Saudi Arabia?
Sure seems pretty material to understanding what commitments this woman who wishes to be President of the United States has made to entities quite outside the American people — and potentially in conflict with our interests. But if Obama’s Department of Justice, led by Attorney General Lynch, gets its way, the American people won’t have visibility into this critical information until well into a potential Hillary Clinton presidency. No doubt that’s exactly how they intend it.
Naturally, people are already crying major foul on this. Via Politico:
Citizens United President David Bossie called the delay State requested this week “outrageous” and explicitly accused the agency f trying to cover for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“This is totally unacceptable; the State Department is using taxpayer dollars to protect their candidate Hillary Clinton.” Bossie said. “The American people have a right to see these emails before the election. If transparency is truly important to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, they will order the production of all of these records as ordered by the court by July 21, 2016. The conflicts of interest that were made possible by the activities of Hillary Clinton’s State Department in tandem with the Clinton Foundation are of significant importance to the public and the law enforcement community.”
Asked about Bossie’s claim that State is trying to aide Clinton by slow-walking the records, a State spokeswoman had no direct comment.
Yeah, apparently even the well-trained liars of the Obama administration can’t answer that inquiry with a straight face or even the attempt at a direct response.
Absolutely shameful and inexcusable. Every single American — Democrat and Republican alike — should be up in arms about this blatant and utter disregard for our right to know the truth about the people we elect to represent us. Yes, they are sent to represent us — not themselves or, God forbid, the governments of regimes like Saudi Arabia.
And yet that’s exactly what it appears they may be doing.
