The real story of that Lynch-Clinton
tarmac meeting gets even stranger

Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 8/11/2017 4:34:04 AM

When we last checked in on newly released information regarding that infamous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton, we learned that the media wasn’t terribly interested in discussing the matter any more than absolutely necessary. But as reporters continue to dig through the trove of Justice Department emails obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, we find out that there were some people who were very interested in talking. The people in question would be Lynch’s staff and they were having a flurry of discussions with

Trump should build a new prison and call it the "Obama Legacy Of Shame Building". While it is being constructed Sessions can get his lazy rear end busy and indict all the criminals uncovered from the Obama era and house them there. A section of the jail would be called the "Obama Library" with all of the redacted documents on display.

I know that is silly but I like the idea Anyway !!

Not only Lynch should be prosecuted, Comey should also. Comey admitted that he gave classified information to his friend to leak. My God Jeff Sessions, do you need a house to fall on you. Get started and let the prosecutions begin!!!!!

The human mic stands known as reporters can find George Clooney on a South Pacific island or Prince Harry on an arctic ice floe but they can´t manage to find the slow-waddling Lynch or the 44th president of the US and ask some tough questions despite all concerned living in the swamp.

The Enemedia was clearly in on Sir Edmund´s fix. Why would they want to report it and indict themselves?

Remember when the Enemedia started circulating, weeks before the corrupt Free Pass was issued, all that nonsense about what an incorruptible "straight shooter" Comey was? Wonder why they felt the need to do that...?

At this point, the Fake and Fraud Enemedia News Enterprises, the entire U.S. Congress and -- regrettably, AG Sessions and his worse-than-useless deputy Rosenstein -- are working harder to ignore and/or suppress the matter than to talk about it, report it or -- heaven forbid -- actually do anything about it. Meanwhile, Special Persecutor Robert "Javert" Mueller, having just added to his war room, pen-in-hand, Obama-appointed, Patrick Leahy-trained "Judge" Beryl "Kafka" Howell, proceeds merrily along with his intimidate-everybody-until-one-gets-him-to-anyone-named-Trump witch hunt abuse of power, and Jim "J.Edgar" Comey gets paid off under the table by a lefty "book publisher" for his own abuses of office up to and including perjury and the attempted extortion (to keep his FBI gig) of no less than the President of the United States. Our government and our preening, corrupted and/or paralyzed "leadership" poobahs are making Kin Jong Un´ and his government look civilized, competent and committed to the rule of law.

It appears that all AG Sessions wants to focus on is good old basic law enforcement: immigration law, bank robberies, etc. He wants nothing to do with the likes of Hillary, Comey, etc. And I bet even his efforts on the leakers was forced on him.

It´s sad but I think no matter how successful Sessions is with basic gum shoe justice that he will be remembered in the history books as the one man who really screwed over Pres. Trump - especially if Mueller and his team of blackboots come up with some crumb of minor crime to pin on some member of Trump´s team.

If anyone ever wanted to see a textbook example of collusion, this is it. The DOJ and the FBI have been exposed even trading talking points! You know, those points that both parties agree to use in order to keep their asserted story straight. Even more incriminating, they now have even colluded to improperly redact those talking points from the documents they were legally forced to turn over.

Talk about getting caught red-handed. Clearly, Comey and the FBI are "The Watchdog That Didn´t Bark". Even worse, they´re "The Watchdog That Helped Bury The Evidence."

The whole tarmac meeting was just a very shiny object to distract from the real emergency: burying the Foundation emails for 24 months - which happened magically and without fanfare two days after that meeting. Clinton told Lynch to just take the heat on the Hillary thing and let the press run with that, but at all costs, bury those emails until they could do something permanent about them. Its in the Foundation emails that the hot, smoking gun can be found that will put the whole cabal in the grey bar hotel. Or worse.

Of course attorney Paige Herwig is bowing out of the investigation /s:

´One of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s top lawyers at the Justice Department helped edit Obama administration press statements about the infamous meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton on a tarmac last summer.

The same attorney, Paige Herwig, is now the deputy general counsel for Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. That panel is now investigating whether Lynch played any role in trying to influence the scope or intensity of the FBI’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal…´

There are thousands of examples of why I never watch the nightly news. Watching these intellectually, morally superior teleprompter readers suffering from acute cognitive dissonance blow off this meeting was ridiculous. What should have been the minimum reaction is being amazed that someone could make it up the aircraft stairs without having a stroke.

Under the terms of the settlement, Gruber will no longer work as a taxpayer-funded economic consultant for the state’s health care system and he won’t seek to be paid any money he might be owed, reports the Rutland Herald, a Vermont newspaper.

They only got a few shovelfuls before giving up. But they vowed to return with a backhoe to dig the rest of the man’s grave up later. Legally speaking, this would be called “grave robbing” and “vandalism,” and might even violate a few of God’s laws, as well.

The Friday firing of Trump advisor Steve Bannon has already been exhaustively overanalyzed, but there is at least one significant aspect of it which has gotten little or no attention. Now that Bannon is returning to lead Breitbart.com, what would Andrew Breitbart, the late founder of that news organization, think of what has transpired in this last super crazy year now that things seem to have gone full circle for Bannon. In my view, Andrew would be furious with Bannon on multiple levels. I am well aware of the inherently precarious nature of trying to speak on behalf of someone who is

The Barcelona terrorists had planned to turn a majestic Spanish cathedral frequented by tourists into a scene of blood and carnage — but they were forced to abandon that strategy when their bombs accidentally detonated inside their hideout. The famous Sagrada Familia cathedral — designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi — was “Plan A” for the terror cell’s devastating attack, according to Spanish media. Those plans, however, were thwarted when one of the cell’s bomb factories 120 miles to the south of Barcelona burst into rubble Wednesday evening, leaving behind 120 gas cannisters carrying butane and a volatile powder known as “Mother

Unless you work in it, it is impossible to know exactly what goes on inside any administration. The thought processes behind actions and statements are calculated and self-serving, no doubt. It’s usually not that difficult to rationalize why people acted as they did – or it was before the Trump White House. But now, more often than not, from minor to major actions, it’s often impossible to see any rationale for what is going on. I know I’m going to catch hell from some people for this, but I have to ask some questions. Most pressing is this: Is there anyone involved

The antifa threat: Poisoning the Trump opposition

The disgusting resurgence of white supremacists in 2017 America, aided and abetted by a White House engaging in toxic moral equivalence, has gotten an assist from a tiny left-wing cadre. This loosely organized band calls itself antifa (“anti-fascist”), and — unlike the broad coalition of activists arrayed in opposition to much of the Trump agenda — its members unapologetically embrace violence as the only sufficiently strong answer to those they see as enemies, even when those enemies are engaging in nonviolent protest. Down this road, madness lies. In a civil society — fingers crossed, that’s what this still is — unprovoked violence is

When a news organization reports an impending weather event based on forecasts from the National Weather Service, or warns of potential seismic activity anticipated by the U.S. Geological Survey, or alerts the public concerning an infectious-disease outbreak being tracked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, no one questions the news organization’s motives, because the underlying information is factual and derived from a reliable, nonpartisan, and authoritative source.

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

Democrats have responded to the tragic events in Charlottesville by obsessively picking apart President Trump’s multiple statements about those events, while steadfastly refusing to admit that the far-left antifas had anything to do with the violence they precipitated, and by demanding the removal of Confederate monuments. A casual consumer of the news might assume that Charlottesville has been a political triumph for Democrats, and a disaster for Trump and the GOP. But the Associated Press now realizes, with evident dismay, that the Democrats may have miscalculated: “Dems risk culture war fight in Charlottesville response.” Democrats have denounced Trump for blaming “both

The departure of Steve Bannon from the White House won’t have a big impact on the day-to-day operations of the West Wing. An economic nationalist who served as Donald Trump’s political id (as well as his chief strategist), Bannon was effectively sidelined back in April, after he was removed from the National Security Council and was accused of insulting Donald Trump’s adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Bannon’s planned in-house think tank, the Strategic Initiatives Group, never quite got off the ground. His policy portfolio was slim, down to two areas: trade and foreign policy—specifically the war in Afghanistan. Much of

Steve Bannon’s White House departure Friday was largely predictable — but not so its impact on Donald Trump’s presidency. At the least, it may help stem some of the White House infighting that has frequently undercut the president’s agenda. Bannon’s removal became all but certain when he gave an interview to The American Prospect mocking Trump’s “fire and fury” threat against North Korea. Such insubordination clearly made his continued presence as chief strategist untenable. Nor did it help that he also bad-mouthed other Trump aides, picked fights and ridiculed those he opposed. Or that he was seen as the mastermind

The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.

WASHINGTON — Five days after President Donald Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants. "Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders," Trump declared at the Jan. 25 ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, which controls federal immigration agencies. Seven months later, construction of the wall has yet to begin, the number of Border Patrol officers has actually dropped by 220
