Hillary Dismisses Tarmac Meeting Between Bill Clinton And Loretta Lynch As Nothing (VIDEO)
Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:
In a recent interview on PBS, Judy Woodruff asked Hillary Clinton if the infamous tarmac meeting between her husband and then attorney general Loretta Lynch may have cost her the election.
Hillary waved the controversy off as nothing, proving once again how out of step she is with the American people.
The Blaze has the transcript:
One of Clinton’s main targets for excusing why she lost the presidential election last November has been Comey. She says the investigation, his letters to Congress less than two weeks before the election, and the scathing rebuke he gave of her on national TV last July contributed to a poor public perception of her, and therefore, her loss.
But is it really Comey’s fault? Woodruff wanted to know.
“My question is: He was in the role he was in because Loretta Lynch had pulled back and essentially turned over the leading roll in overseeing the FBI’s investigation into your emails because of that meeting on the airport tarmac with your husband. … To what extent did Loretta Lynch and President Clinton make a costly mistake?” Woodruff asked.
Clinton, shaking her head, said:
“Judy, I just don’t buy that — I honestly reject that premise partly because there’s a chain-of-command in the Justice Department.”
“The optics looked bad, I admit that.”
“What we know happened: The investigation was getting nowhere, there was nothing to find. And [Comey] was in a position of having to accept the evidence that there was no case.”
