Update: Janet Reno? Really???
Attorney general won’t recuse herself in Clinton email case
Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Friday that she planned to take a step back in the case involving the handling of sensitive information stored on Hillary Clinton’s personal email server but would not flat-out recuse herself.
Lynch said she still intended to review the case but expected to accept the recommendation of investigators and prosecutors at the FBI and Justice Department. [snip]
Lynch, who was traveling with her husband, said she’d spoken with Bill Clinton about their grandchildren, golf and former Attorney General Janet Reno. She described the meeting as social and unplanned.
Um, one of the big controversies of the Janet Reno Department of Justice was the use of special prosecutors. A special prosecutor appointed now would delay resolution of the Clinton controversies past election day. So, why and what was this discussion about? It wasn’t about grandbabies and the green green grass of golf. Janet Reno? Really???
Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch privately which has been universally denounced as entirely inappropriate. That meeting was even more inappropriate than when Bill used Monica Lewinsky as a humidor. Still, what Bill Clinton did was smart. It was necessary. It was very smart. Until it blew up like an exploding cigar. We explain below.
Our regular readers know we do not believe Barack Obama will ever allow Hillary Clinton to be his successor and heir and that Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategy is a “muddled message mess“. Even at this late date, in this July month of conventions to nominate candidates for both major parties, we believe we are entirely correct and the rest of the world is wrong. Hillary Clinton will not be the nominee of the Obama Dimocrat Party.
With the above in mind, consider why Bill Clinton met secretly with Attorney General and all around klutz and klown Loretta Lynch. Do you see why Bill Clinton did what he did?
Bill Clinton is a smart man. Bill Clinton knows a meeting with the Attorney General, even as Hillary Clinton is potentially under criminal investigation by the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice, is extremely inappropriate and dynamite if it ever became public. But for Bill Clinton is was the smart play. It was the necessary play. Why? Read our second paragraph again.
Why was the risk of getting caught in Loretta Lynch’s plane a worthwhile “smart” risk for Bill Clinton? Because Bill Clinton knows that Obama cannot be trusted. Bill Clinton knows that aside from the bluster that even if indicted Hillary Clinton would continue to run for president, an indictment would utterly destroy not only Hillary2016 but the entire Clinton Global Initiative as well.
Bill Clinton knows that the only chance, if Hillary Clinton is indicted or her top aides are indicted, is for the indictment to take place after the Democratic Party nomination. Once Hillary is the nominee she can fight to the death to remain the nominee. But an indictment before the Democratic Party convention in Philadelphia would mean immediate, unstoppable death to Hillary2016. So Bill Clinton had to find out.
Bill Clinton had to find out the state of play. Bill Clinton is desperate. Bill Clinton had to find out where Loretta Lynch’s loyalties lie. Is Loretta Lynch loyal to Bill Clinton the man who gave her a start? Or is Loretta Lynch loyal to the despicable Barack Obama? Bill Clinton had to know. Bill Clinton had to know now! Bill Clinton had to know before Saturday.
Bill Clinton had to know before Saturday, July 2 because it is rumored that Hillary Clinton will be interrogated by the F.B.I. on Saturday:
Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to meet Saturday with the FBI, a source close to the investigation into her private email server tells The Daily Caller.
The source went on to suggest the interview may take place at her Washington, D.C. home.
The bureau’s interview with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is believed to be the final step in its investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information on Clinton’s private email server. [snip]
Clinton has no campaign events listed on her schedule which means that she will not be tailed by the usual pack of campaign reporters.
Bill Clinton made a calculation. Bill Clinton had to find out where Loretta Lynch’s loyalties lay well before Saturday’s Hillary “interview” with the F.B.I. It was a smart play if it wasn’t exposed. But it has become an exploding cigar tainting the former president and bringing into question the ‘golf and grandkids’ nature of the conversation:
‘No photos, no pictures, no cell phones.” According to Christopher Sign, an ABC network news anchor, the meeting was intended to be kept secret. Now that it is no longer secret, even if it was entirely gregarious Bill being polite, it is a big problem. What Bill Clinton thought was smart, turned out to be, in the light of day, dumb.
