Although President Trump and many officials in the administration have stated that they wish to move on, the FBI agreed to re-examine FOIA requests for any records connected to the infamous tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch.
The America Center for Law and Justice requested the documents but was initially informed that none existed. The FBI has apparently reversed this decision. On Fox News today, American Center for Law and Justice President Jay Sekulow discussed the heavily redacted documents the Department of Justice released to Judicial Watch, implying that the damning information had been hidden from Judicial Watch. Sekulow promised to press forward with additional requests for communications between federal agencies on the matter.

The Lynch-Clinton Meeting
This case outraged many Americans as the husband of a woman under federal investigation brazenly held a meeting with the woman responsible for prosecuting his wife. The former president claimed that they had simply discussed their grandchildren. Bill Clinton denied that he had made any offer or threat, or even inquired into the state of the investigation. The angry public reaction caused Loretta Lynch to take a step back from the investigation. At the same time, voter anger over the incident did not die. This provided the public with another striking example of the Clintons’ invincibility from legal consequences.
It seems that a Republican-controlled government might be able to finally change that. This aura of invincibility was one of the most frustrating aspects of the myriad scandals of Hillary Clinton. With President Obama and his Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, standing between Director Comey and a fair investigation of Clinton, few on the right believed that she would be brought to justice. Organizations such as Judicial Watch and the American Center for Law and Justice may have helped restart the investigation. According to them, the information is out there.
It’s up to men of integrity in the government, as well as men of action in these organizations, to bring the truth to light.
