Loretta Lynch’s tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton was one of the most controversial moments of the 2016 election.

It signaled to many Americans the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server was a sham.

But what Hillary Clinton said about Loretta Lynch and that meeting defies all logic.

In “What Happened” – her account of her failed and disastrous campaign – Clinton described how she was outraged that former FBI Director James Comey believed Lynch was compromised because of the meeting and took it upon himself to decide her fate.

Clinton ignored that Comey let her get away with breaking the law and focused on how Comey used the remarks leading up to his announcement that she would not be facing charges to catalogue his wrongdoing.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has her own take in her new book “What Happened” on how the 2016 tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch actually panned out.

“Comey decided to go ahead with the press conference because of supposed concerns he had with his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch. His decision was reportedly influenced by a forged Russian document that sought to discredit Lynch. It was fake, but Comey was still concerned (more on that in the next chapter),” Clinton wrote in a chapter of her new book, titled “Those Damn Emails,” released to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Comey has also pointed to the fact that Lynch and my husband had a brief, unplanned conversation on a tarmac in Phoenix in late June 2016, when their planes happened to be next to each other. Nothing inappropriate was said in any way, but both of them came to regret exchanging pleasantries that day because of the firestorm that followed,” Clinton wrote.

“There’s no doubt that the optics were bad, but that didn’t give Comey carte blanche to ignore Justice Department policies and overstep his bounds. The implication that Lynch, a distinguished career prosecutor, was suddenly compromised and couldn’t be trusted is outrageous and insulting,” Clinton wrote. “It’s also insulting to the former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and all the other senior Justice Department officials who were in the chain of command.”

At the time, Trump expressed the feelings of millions of Americans when he tweeted that Comey letting Clinton off the hook meant the system was rigged.

While Clinton was correct that Comey overstepped his bounds and assumed the role of a prosecutor, she was horribly off base in describing how compromised Lynch and the Justice Department political appointees actually were.

Lynch was given her start as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York by Bill Clinton.

And there were rumors during the election that Hillary would ask Lynch to stay on as Attorney General if he won.

In addition, Comey also testified that Lynch ordered him to refer to the investigation as a “matter” – a phrase that synched the FBI’s public statements with Clinton campaign talking points.

That directive demonstrated she was looking out for Hillary Clinton’s political interests – and not those of the Justice Department.

For a family known for telling whoppers, Hillary’s claim that Lynch was not compromised by politics ranks right up there with “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.
