According to a CNS News report, hundreds of emails released by the Department of Justice reveal that former FBI Director James Comey was less than truthful 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.
The emails were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the American Center for Law and Justice, and serve as proof that “the Comey FBI lied to us.”
Just last week, a release from the ACLJ stated that “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.’”
“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?’”
With this news, it’s becoming increasingly clearer that Comey didn’t want America to know he full details of Lynch’s involvement in the Clinton case to be known. Perhaps his firing was justified after all?
