Hundreds of emails released by the Department of Justice revealed that former FBI Director James Comey had lied about the existence of emails regarding the tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton during the FBI’s email server investigation, CNS News reports.
The documents were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the American Center for Law and Justice. They said the documents, dumped by the Department of Justice last Friday, are proof that “the Comey FBI lied to us.”
“Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any documents related to the Clinton Lynch plane meeting. The FBI, under the then directorship of James Comey, replied that ‘No records responsive to your request were located,’” a news release from the ACLJ last week said.
“The documents we received today from the Department of Justice include several emails from the FBI to DOJ officials concerning the meeting. One with the subject line ‘FLAG’ was correspondence between FBI officials (Richard Quinn, FBI Media/Investigative Publicity, and Michael Kortan) and DOJ officials concerning ‘flag(ing) a story . . . about a casual, unscheduled meeting between former president Bill Clinton and the AG.’ The DOJ official instructs the FBI to ‘let me know if you get any questions about this’ and provides ‘(o)ur talkers (DOJ talking points) on this’. The talking points, however are redacted.
“Another email to the FBI contains the subject line ‘security details coordinate between Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton?’”
The emails are the latest in the saga of Loretta Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton last summer, which allegedly served as the impetus for James Comey’s decision to come forward and publicly announce he was not recommending charges for Hillary Clinton.
It’s become clear that Comey didn’t want America to know the full details of Lynch’s involvement in the Clinton case, particularly since he didn’t even disclose that Lynch had asked Comey to refer to the investigation into Hillary Clinton as something other than an investigation.
These emails are yet more proof that Comey was not acting in the best interests of the American people and that his firing was justified. The devastating truth is that he lied, and not just on this occasion. We ought to be thankful that he’s gone.
