The Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting story just got even stranger 

The story behind the meeting between former AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on the airport tarmac just took another turn for the worst. As you may recall, the cover story was that it was only a coincidental meeting and only grandchildren and golf were discussed. The mainstream media treated the whole story as a ho-hum event. It was under reported, to say the least. If that was the case, then what has been uncovered by the latest email releases seems to put the lie to that story. What was all the email turmoil about?

One of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s top lawyers at the Justice Department helped edit Obama administration press statements about the infamous meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton on a tarmac last summer.

The same attorney, Paige Herwig, is now the deputy general counsel for Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. That panel is now investigating whether Lynch played any role in trying to influence the scope or intensity of the FBI’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal…
