Funny how paperwork that got “lost” in the Obama years keeps popping up in the Trump administration, even if it takes a lawsuit to do it.
In the latest twist involving leftover investigations from the Obama administration, the conservative activist group Judicial Watch announced Friday that the FBI had located 30 pages of “documents” on its investigation of one of the most notorious aspects of the Hillary Clinton email investigation:
The clandestine meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch aboard Lynch’s government plane on June 27, 2016, at an Arizona airport.
The FBI’s disclosure came in response to lawsuit Judicial Watch filed over the FBI’s failure to comply with a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch submitted in July of last year. That was only days after then FBI Director James Comey announced he was not recommending criminal prosecution of Hillary Clinton for using a private email server during her time as secretary of state.
But even under a new president, the FBI has been less than cooperative when it comes to disclosing key parts of its controversial investigation into the Clinton affair. The new documents won’t be disclosed until Nov. 30, according to Judicial Watch.
It wasn’t just the FBI that wanted to downplay the Clinton-Lynch tryst. The Clinton corner of the mainstream media did its best to whitewash the whole affair too.
