Attorney General Recuses Herself from Hillary Indictment Decision

Wow.

(CNN)Attorney General Loretta Lynch will accept the determinations and findings of the FBI and career prosecutors who are investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, Lynch said Friday.

Lynch made the pledge Friday at Aspen Ideas Festival, following questions raised when she met privately with former President Bill Clinton at a Phoenix airport earlier this week.
“I certainly wouldn’t do it again because I think it has cast this shadow over what it should not, over what it will not touch,” Lynch said at the event, adding, “It’s important to make it clear that that meeting with President Clinton does not have a bearing on how this matter will be reviewed and resolved.”

Bill Clinton Huddles with AG Lynch

Uh huh.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton on Monday night at the Phoenix international airport, ABC 15 reported.

The meeting came hours before the House Benghazi Committee on Tuesday released a report on the 2012 terror attacks in Libya. Lynch told reporters the two did not discuss the issue.

“Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels, and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix,” Lynch said.
