From 7-1-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F
Bill Clinton was at a Phoenix airport last Monday. He was waiting for his plane to depart. Just so happened that Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s plane was landing there as well. When Lynch landed, Bill walked over and had a conversation with her on the tarmac that lasted 30 minutes. What did they talk about for half an hour? Bill’s grandkids. Golf. Janet Reno.
“There was no discussion of any matter pending for the department or any matter pending for any other body. There was no discussion of Benghazi, no discussion of the State Department emails, by way of example,” Lynch said in Phoenix.
Oh, did I mention that Loretta Lynch is in charge of a criminal investigation involving Bill’s wife, a woman who could very well be the next President of the United States?
It’s funny watching the Democratic media try to cover this story. They all have a look on their faces like they’re changing a baby’s poopy diaper. They know they have to report on it, but they really don’t want to. When a kid craps his Pampers, you can’t just let him wallow in his own filth. You have to change him, no matter how nauseating the process is.
That’s what it’s like watching the media cover the Lynch/Clinton meeting. We probably never would have known about it were it not for a reporter from a local ABC affiliate. You know something had to have tipped the reporter off. Maybe it was Bernie Sanders?
Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch just happened to be in Phoenix at the exact same time. Out of the blue, Bill sees Lynch’s plane land next to his and decides to walk over and strike up a conversation. Neither of them thought this was a big deal.
Think about it. Bill’s wife Hillary is running to be the first female president. She will carry on all of Obama’s policies. Obamacare won’t be reversed, neither will his policies in Cuba, Iran, Israel, Russia, China, etc. Hillary will appoint the same Supreme Court judges Obama would. In many ways, Obama’s legacy is in Hillary’s hands. Loretta Lynch is weighing the evidence and will decide whether or not to indict Hillary, which would cost her the presidency and Obama his legacy. Loretta Lynch literally has the future of the country in her hands. That’s how important the decision of whether or not to indict Hillary Clinton is. And here’s Lynch and Bill Clinton having a “chance” meeting at an airport.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
So the media is reluctantly covering this. Lynch did an interview with Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart on Friday. This was the first time Lynch was interviewed since the controversy erupted.
JONATHAN CAPEHART: Having the highest integrity, utmost solid judgment, so when people heard what went down in Phoenix, a lot of people are like, I mean, friends, supporters, backers, are saying what on earth was she thinking? Talking to Bill Clinton. So what on earth were you thinking? What happened?
LORETTA LYNCH: Well that’s the question of the day, isn’t it. I think that’s a perfectly reasonable question. I ts the question that is called by what happened in Phoenix because people have also wondered and raised questions about my role in the ultimate resolution of matters involving the investigation into the state department e-mails. and to the extent that people have questions about that, about my role in that, certainly my meeting with him raises questions and concerns. And so believe me, I completely get that question, and I think it is the question of the day. But I think the issue is again, what is my role in how that matter is going to be resolved. So let me be clear on how that is going to be resolved. I have gotten that question a lot also over time and we usually don’t go into those deliberations but I do think it’s important that people see what that process is like. As I have always indicated, the matter’s being handled by career agents and investigators with the Department of Justice. They have had it since the beginning. they are —
CAPEHART: Which predates your tenure as Attorney General.
LYNCH: Predates my tenure as attorney general. It is the same team. And they are acting independently. They follow the law, they follow the facts. That team will make findings, that is to say, they will come up with a chronology of what happened, the factual scenario. They will make recommendations as to how to resolve what those facts lead to. The recommendations will be reviewed by career supervisors in the Department of Justice and in the FBI, and by the FBI director, and then as is the common process, they present it to me and I fully expect to accept their recommendations.
CAPEHART: What’s interesting here is you say you fully expect to accept their recommendations. One thing people were saying this morning when the news broke was that you were quote, recusing yourself from having any kind of role in the final determination. Is that the case? Is that what you’re saying?
LYNCH: Recusal would mean I wouldn’t even be briefed on what the findings were or what the actions going forward would be. And while I don’t have a role in those coming up with those findings or making those recommendations as to how to go forward, I will be briefed on it and i will be accepting their recommendations.
CAPEHART: When you say again, this must be the journalist in me and the linguist in me, accepting to me means here, Madam Attorney General, here are our findings and you completely accept them whole-heatedly and issue them to the public or you accept them, look them over and then make your own determination as to what the final determination will be?
LYNCH: No. the final determination as to how to proceed will be contained within the recommendations in the report and whatever format the team puts it together, that has not been resolved, whatever report they provide to me. There will be a review of their investigation. There will be review of what they have found and determined to have happened and occurred and it will be their determinations as to how they feel the case should proceed.
So Loretta Lynch is not going to recuse herself from the investigation. It’s amazing what the left is able to get away with. They would never get way with it if they didn’t control the media. John Ashcroft recused himself from the Karl Rove Justice Department investigation into whether he revealed the name of a CIA operative to the media in 2003. Rove was responsible for Ashcroft getting his attorney general appointment. There was a clear conflict of interest, so Ashcroft removed himself from the case.
Loretta Lynch got her start from Bill Clinton. She was nominated to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York by then President Bill Clinton in 1999. This appointment eventually led to her becoming Attorney General of the United States. There’s real history with Bill Clinton. There’s history with Hillary Clinton. If John Ashcroft had a sense of loyalty to the Bush people, what do you think Loretta Lynch has for the Clintons?
How do you conduct impartial investigations when you’re in the tank for a political party? How? It goes against reason. That’s why a wife can’t be compelled to testify against her husband. It’s called spousal privilege. It’s human nature to want to protect someone who is close to you, and Loretta Lynch is very close with the Clintons.
They say Donald Trump doesn’t have the judgement to be President of the United States. Here’s the Attorney General having a private conversation with a former president who is the husband of the woman who is running against Trump and has the power to decide whether or not she will be indicted, and neither of them think it’s a big deal. That’s good judgement? Hillary Clinton sets up a private email server that she knows is illegal and when she gets caught she says if she had to do it over again, she would have done things differently. That’s good judgement?
You do know they are not going to come back with an indictment, right? Some of my Republican friends are salivating at the prospect. It’s not going to happen. Do you know what a Pandora’s Box it would open? President Obama would get jammed up, because you have to assume that he was sent emails during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State. Did no one in his administration look at the header of the emails to see where they were coming from? Maybe Obama was busy fighting terror and didn’t notice, but it seems like someone like David Axelrod would have noticed that Hillary’s emails didn’t have a .gov suffix.
If Hillary gets indicted, everybody in Obama’s inner circle is going to get jammed up. It’s a Pandora’s Box. That’s why the State Department is asking a federal judge to extend the deadline to complete processing of her emails by more than two years. The Justice Department filed a motion on behalf of the State Department to not have to release thousands of emails until October 2018.
Why are they doing this? Because releasing the emails would affect the outcome of the presidential race.
When the media is calling Donald Trump a fascist and comparing him to Hitler, do you really think they are going to let anything slip through the cracks that would imperil their only chance of stopping him from becoming president? You have liberal media editors who say it’s perfectly fine to riot at a Trump rally and break things and assault police officers because those rioters are stopping Hitler. You have network news executives calling Trump’s attempted assassin a good guy with a gun. It’s perfectly fine to kill baby Hitler so he doesn’t grow up and start World War II and kill million of Jews.
So the media is never going to do something that could cost Hillary a few million votes. The Obama administration is never going to let anything come out that could affect her run. It’s just not going to happen. Obama’s Justice Department is burying Hillary’s emails until October 2018. Who knows if they will ever come out? Especially if Hillary is elected president.
Remember, if the media didn’t cover it, it didn’t happen.
