FOIA Dump Reveals Collusion Between Lynch, FBI And Media To Bury Bill Clinton Meeting

Tyler Durden's picture

Back on June 29, 2016, Obama's Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, tried to convince us that the following 'impromptu' meeting between herself and Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport, a private meeting which lasted 30 minutes on Lynch's private plane, was mostly a "social meeting" in which Bill talked about his grandchildren and golf game.  It was not, under any circumstances, related to the statement that former FBI Director James Comey made just 6 days later clearing Hillary Clinton of any alleged crimes related to his agency's investigation.


But, according to a new DOJ FOIA dump just released by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), it looks increasingly as if nothing reported about this "social meeting" between Lynch and Clinton was grounded in fact...shocking, we know.

First, the new FOIA documents seemingly confirm that the FBI and DOJ simply lied in response to the ACLJ's initial FOIA request filed back in July 2016.  Here is what the ACLJ was told at the time after sending requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any documents related to the Clinton-Lynch plane meeting:


That said, documents released today by the ACLJ reveal several emails between FBI and DOJ officials concerning the Lynch/Clinton meeting primarily related to how they should go about explaining the train wreck that had just been unwittingly played out on live television courtesy of a local Phoenix affiliate station.  Here is a recap from ACLJ:

The documents we received today from the Department of Justice include several emails from the FBI to DOJ officials concerning the meeting.  One with the subject line “FLAG” was correspondence between FBI officials (Richard Quinn, FBI Media/Investigative Publicity, and Michael Kortan) and DOJ officials concerning “flag[ing] a story . . . about a casual, unscheduled meeting between former president Bill Clinton and the AG.” The DOJ official instructs the FBI to “let me know if you get any questions about this” and provides “[o]ur talkers [DOJ talking points] on this”. The talking points, however are redacted.


Another email to the FBI contains the subject line “security details coordinate between Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton?”


On July 1, 2016 – just days before our FOIA request – a DOJ email chain under the subject line, “FBI just called,” indicates that the “FBI . . . is looking for guidance” in responding to media inquiries about news reports that the FBI had prevented the press from taking pictures of the Clinton Lynch meeting. The discussion then went off email to several phone calls (of which we are not able to obtain records). An hour later, Carolyn Pokomy of the Office of the Attorney General stated, “I will let Rybicki know.” Jim Rybicki was the Chief of Staff and Senior Counselor to FBI Director Jim Comey. The information that was to be provided to Rybicki is redacted.


Also of note several of the documents contain redactions that are requested “per FBI.”


It is clear that there were multiple records within the FBI responsive to our request and that discussions regarding the surreptitious meeting between then AG Lynch and the husband of the subject of an ongoing FBI criminal investigation reached the highest levels of the FBI.

Then comes a series of emails between DOJ officials and several mainstream media outlets that appear to reveal collusion to effectively 'kill the story."

The first such email involves a Washington Post writer who tells the DOJ's Director of Public Affairs that he's hoping to "put it [the story] to rest."


The next email came from Mark Landler of the New York Times who almost apologizes for even inquiring about the Lynch/Clinton meeting saying that he had been "pressed into service" to write about the topic.


Finally, here is an email where ABC apparently told the DOJ they "aren't interested" in the Lynch/Clinton story, "even if FOX runs with it."


Can you imagine all of the stuff we would have learned over the past 8 years if the press pursued the Obama administration and/or the Clinton investigation with even 1/10th of the vigor with which it is currently pursuing Trump?

If (a very big IF) Loretta Lynch ever ends up in prison, her ass will have to be trimmed up with a chainsaw, so she can squeeze through the cell’s door.  ;-)

Mr. Looney, I find fuck-all funny about what is happening to our national-government.  Our nation is under-attack by literal seditionists and traitors, whom have sworn to continue their treachey against the people of our nation, as they have done since AT LEAST 1963, and in many ways, before 1961, and this situation is simply intolerable.


Thank you for understanding, and I hope that you will take-more-seriously our collective-situation.

The FBI knew? SHOCKINGLY! And they tired to cover it up? SHOCKINGLY!

I don't think that word means what you think it does.

nmewn's picture

And they were asking for "talkers"...aka talking points. And the Alinsky press knew and was"colluding" with Comey's FBI & Lowrenta at DoJ ;-)

Politicians are just pawns of the aristocracy. Get acquainted with the behind-the-scene manipulators first.

"Can you imagine all of the stuff we would have learned over the past 8 years if the press pursued..."

I'll finish the sentence correctly.

... the true perpetrators of 9/11: Israel and the neocons.

and let's not lose sight of the conclusions of seymour hersh, left wing jewish pulitzer prize winning journalist with five polk awards, that the whole russian meddling in u.s. elections was "a Brennan operation. It was an American disinformation operation f***ing the f***ing president. And at one point they even started telling the press, they were back-briefing the press, the head of the NSA was going and telling the press - f***ing c***sucker Rogers3 - was telling the press that we even know who in the Russian military intelligence service leaked it. I mean all bulls***.

is this treason?  if not what is it?  it can't be legal.  why is this not being investigated with a tenth the strength and money that mueller, the congress and the legacy media are "investigating" the "disinformation operation"?

we may be ignorant and stupid but come on.

p.s. i have started copying the doj on some of my zh comments, trying to get a bit more bang for my buck.  since the nsa, etc. already know everything i do i figure i've not much to lose.  

Here is DOJ contact email 

Here is Trump at WH email contact

Where is the special counsel for all this crap?

Ask Sessions. Maybe he will get around to it after he rounds up all the pot smokers.

Good comment, but "elections" are largely an illusion as both the red and blue candidates are pre-selected.  A real life example:  My local Congress critter enlisted Democrap union voters to vote in the Repugnican primaries to block a Tea Party candidate.  Then, two weeks after the regular election, my Congress critter resigns.  The local Repugnican chairman even admitted the Congress critter only stayed in the election to block the Tea Party candidate.  Trump is an exception, and this is why the DC Mafia want to shut him down, just as they have tried to shut down any third party movement.

I knew FoX was fake news way before I stopped watching TV. Only one thing worse than blatant fake news is fake real news. Put on clean undies so that people will respect you when you are dead.The war is not over yet.

Hey, we all gave it a shot though didn't we? Soon the real shooting will begin. Prepare yourself. 

And I gotta say, I'm still gonna be in the burn it the ___ down camp, I want to leave nothing for them. What we had will go back to the elitists, the connected, the monarchists, the blue bloods, the oligarchs, the cronies. Nothing but ashes, a smirk and a hardy shout out of, "Thanks for playing!"

It was a good run ;-)

"Remember Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette" is what I sent to my representatives, if these scum aren't prosecuted.

Just remember, when being escorted up the thirteen steps they will drop to their knees and scream out:

"Wait! You can't do this! The Russians or Chinese will invade without our protection as a nation state!"

We will be offered one final false choice that only benefits them, one all encompassing appeal to patriotism, the last refuge of criminals & scoundrels.

Kayman's picture

The very same slimy cocksuckers that sold this nation out to the Chinese, that fertilize the faux fight with the Russkies, all to line their own pockets at the expense of the dying middle class.

That's what this article is all about, the background army of faux Mainstream Narrative operatives that divert eyes away from the treason.

The Untouchables. As named for the cesspool scum of darkest India. Not Ness.

Kayman, folk like FROZENNUTZ  might get confused when you put one foreign word in a sentence. Faux means fake in French to the turdballs rolling down sand hills.

With all the scandal in the Obama admin, when did ever have time to govern?

VinceFostersGhost's picture



He didn't govern so much as he was just trying to destroy this country.

As far as I know, there is still one guy that worked for thr Rose Law Firm still alive. Find him and Fosters ghost is free. Right outside of Hot Springs. He has a wife (?), and her mother (supposedly) living in the house. They get a check that goes to the suspicious mother. He hides all day drinking hard alchohol. He is scared. I spent two years of my life investigating this.

They called it something else my friend...

"...given the daunting challenges that we face, it's important that president elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one." - Valerie Jarret , Meet the Press, November 9 2008.

...and thats exactly what they did. 

And turn about is fair play in my book, they wrote a massive "law" stipulating that "the Secretary shall" decide & determine.

Well good, the Secretary is Tom Price now ;-)

Any doubts I had about a 5th Colum government that thinks they fucking own us was washed away when I saw how the drones reacted when loser-bitch Hillary passed the fuck out during the 9-11 memorial. They were like a bunch of dogs that just heard Pavlov ring a bell. Fucking looters.

the temptation is intense but what we need most are confessions.  the deluded, the willfully ignorant and the uninterested must be informed.  criminality must be proven, reproven and proven again.  history must not have a chance to mistake what has been done.

Why are you still playing?  Who is going to choose the prosecutor?  One of the compromised, corporately owned, warmongering, wall street stooges?  Let me save you the effort of reading the daily news of the investigation.  They looked at every piece of evidence and while clinton and lynch were extremely careless, no laws were broken.  

Nothing to see here.  Move along.

Organized crime is hard to resist.

When the organized criminals are in full control things get much, much worse.

Nice little life you've got there. Give me half your hard-earned and you won't get hurt.

Just consider taxes as protection money and you will have a much better understanding of how government 'works'.

They do this with the Department of Children and Families.  Pay us and maybe we will let your child go.  It is extortion.

Started a new blog couple days ago to help families dealing with abusive children's services employees.It will soon be loaded with tons of free resources to educate people how to take these battles head-on.

All that's required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing. My stand begins here.

I stopped 10 years ago. Question is, are you going to continue to tithe?

OverTheHedge's picture

Traditionally, a tithe would have been 10%. I wouldn't mind 10%. In fact, I might even volunteer to pay, but they never stop at 10%.

Had a conversation yesterday about how cheap Bulgaria is, compared to Greece - it's about half-price for everything, including imported beer etc. It would appear that the other 50% that all "normal" eu countries charge, would be tax.  Bulgaria is a fine example of what happens when the government is rebooted, following a collapse. Give it 50 years and they will have caught up with everyone else.

Disband the FBI. They do so little and what they do is mostly lies.
