This extremely secure and private meeting outside of the public eye between Clinton and AG Lynch shocks the educated conscience and is an affront to our legal system and republic.
In the least it has created a controverted “appearance” of extremely unethical behavior on the part of AG Lynch.
What is uncontroverted is that she actually met with the husband of an individual who is under a CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION by USDOJ of historic measure and, worse, she (Lynch) is the likely individual who will make the final determination as to whether a federal criminal indictment and prosecution will proceed against Clinton.
Does no one recall the hell storm surrounding Alberto Gonzales per the 2007 dismissal of seven (7) prosecutors? APPEARANCE was the causal fact in that matter too.
As the CHIEF FEDERAL ATTORNEY, Ms. Lynch would be minimally advised to go read and study her own departments United States Attorneys' Manual, specifically §1-4.320 (F)(2) BELOW:
“F. Conflicts of Interest. Employees may not engage in outside activities that create or appear to create a conflict of interest with their official duties. Such a conflict exists when the outside activity would: (1) require the recusal of the employee from significant aspects of his or her official duties (5 C.F.R. § 2635.802(b)); (2) create an appearance that the employee's official duties were performed in a biased or less than impartial manner (5 C.F.R. § 2635.502); or (3) create an appearance of official sanction or endorsement (5 C.F.R. § 2635.702(b)).”
As an addendum: Graft, intimidation, threats and collusion do not require that individuals specifically speak about a subject matter directly. Most of a message in any in-person communication is non-verbal.
Anyone with an ounce of intelligence can use other subjects to clearly communicate a message indirectly on a intended matter that is actually being communicated with "no discussion on any matter pending before the Department or any matter pending with any other body."
This meeting has gravely threatening 'appearances' of conflict of interest and only arrogant fools thinking they are above and immune to the rule of law would proceed with such.
AND then there is the USDOJ probe of the Clinton Foundation itself!
Let us pray to the Providence that has given us our hard won republic that we can survive such corruption of our nation's soul.
