After discovering that Bill Clinton engineered a mysterious meeting with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at a Phoenix, Arizona, airport, it has now been revealed that the pair forced the FBI and Secret Service to turn the media away from the meeting so that it would not be properly covered in the news.
On the same day the Select Congressional Committee released its report on the failures of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to properly respond to the terror attacks on our facilities in Libya that killed four Americans including our ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, Bill Clinton engineered a private meeting with AG Lynch in Phoenix.
Even as reporters raised serious questions about the impropriety of the secretive meeting, Lynch insisted that all they talked about was grandchildren and golf. It was a bald faced claim that sent Rush Limbaugh into paroxysms of parody.
Presumed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump also had a thing or two to say about the illicit meeting:
Bill Clinton’s meeting was a total secret. Nobody was to know about it but he was caught by a local reporter.

But now the facts surrounding this secret meeting are looking even worse as we find out that not only was the meeting left off official schedules, it was also screened from the press.
According to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, the FBI removed reporters from the area and ordered them not to take photos of Clinton/Lynch meeting.
The news that Lynch and Clinton strong armed the media to remain quiet about the meeting caused Twitter to erupt in scorn and criticism.
FBI ordered no photos, no pictures, no cell phones during Clinton/Lynch mtg.
Duh. They knew they were doing wrong. https://t.co/noL3rvNKcY

TBH I’m more offended by the patronizing explanation (similar to Hillary’s “yoga and wedding” email farce)

Lynch/Clinton meeting is chilling. Arrogance of the Democratic Party has become untenable. Integrity of our judicial system is in question.

At Hotair.com, Larry O’Connor had exactly the right question about all this.
With AG Lynch insisting the meeting was all sorts of innocent and not mysterious at all, O’Connor asks, “if there was nothing wrong with the meeting and it was totally innocent, why were federal agents instructed to demand no one take a picture?”
The meeting is also the subject of an ethics complaint filed by Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Noting that Lynch is a key official in the still an ongoing investigation into Bill Clinton’s wife, Hillary, over her illegal use of a private email server which broke U.S. security laws, Judicial Watch charged that the meeting gives the appearance of a violation of the law.
Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with President Clinton creates the appearance of a violation of law, ethical standards and good judgment. Attorney General Lynch’s decision to breach the well-defined ethical standards of the Department of Justice and the American legal profession is an outrageous abuse of the public’s trust. Her conduct and statements undermine confidence in her ability to objectively investigate and prosecute possible violations of law associated with President Clinton and Secretary Clinton. This incident undermines the public’s faith in the fair administration of justice. Simply stated, Attorney General Lynch’s June 29, 2016 meeting with former President Clinton creates the broad public impression that “the fix is in.”
