What Loretta Lynch was up to during the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email debacle is still not entirely clear to the American public.
Only one week before James Comey, Director of the FBI, announced that his agency would not recommend indictment against former Secretary of State Clinton for storing and sending classified information on private email servers, Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton in what both called an impromptu meeting aboard her private jet in Phoenix.
Speaking before a Congressional committee, Lynch claimed that all she and Bill Clinton talked about that day was golf and grandchildren and the email investigation wasn’t discussed at all.
Speaking off the record to a New York Post reports, several FBI agents say not so. They believe Bill Clinton and Lynch struck a deal that day to keep Hillary free of indictment. Since the Obama administration is know to retaliate severely against insiders who speak out, the Post cited the agents anonymously.
In what they called an “unusual move” all agents were compelled to sign what is called a “Case Briefing Acknowledgment” form, a non-disclosure agreement. Inside sources say they were aware of agents having to sign such an agreement before being granted security clearance but not for such an event. One retired FBI chief said he had never heard of such a thing.
A number of FBI agents have expressed their “disappointment” over FBI Director Comey’s decision not to advise Lynch to pursue charges against Clinton. The unnamed agents said they believe there was an inside deal struck between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch at their infamous tarmac meeting.
FBI agents and some with the Justice Department were not pleased. One source in the DOJ put it more bluntly, saying that Comey had “managed to piss off right and left.”
