Synopsis: Exactly what was discussed between then Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Bill Clinton at the infamous secret tarmac meeting at the Phoenix airport was apparently recorded by the NSA.
The notorious secret meeting was held on June 27, 2016, just a few days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced that the Justice Department would not be prosecuting Hillary Clinton over her email scandal.
New responses to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information requests proves that President Clinton’s contention that the meeting was purely accidental is a lie. The FBI was fully aware of it days in advance as shown by the production of redacted emails which discuss the deployment of additional FBI SWAT resources which may have been covering the event.
Furthermore, the FBI attempted to cover up the tarmac meeting by targeting an FBI whistleblower. The names of the authors of a flurry of emails in search of the whistleblower have been redacted, and none of the newly-released emails show any concern about the meeting itself.
In other words, it was no secret to the FBI what was going on. In fact, top level officials may have been able to review the recordings of the event in classified settings thanks to the recording system.
The NSA is blocking the release of the recorded conversation based on a weak claim that it is covered by one of President Obama’s many executive orders.
