Loretta Lynch Vows She'll Accept the Verdict of the FBI (and Her Own Team of Handpicked Prosecutors)

Later today, Loretta Lynch will reportedly announce that she's taking herself out of the decision-making loop on the Hillary Clinton Indictment, due to her clandestine meeting with Bill Clinton.

It is being reported she'll accept the guidance of the FBI, and her prosecutors.

Jazz Shaw makes a great point-- the media is reporting this as if she vowed to accept the FBI's word. No, she hasn't. She's talking about an amorphous blob of people, both the FBI and her own senior employees, and that means she gets to decide who makes the cut on her list of "senior prosecutors," and she can decide what weight to give each person's vote.

In other words, she's retaining all power in her own hands -- she's just trying to pretend she's taking herself out of the decision.

That, like everything else this Fun Bunch claims, is a damnable lie.

Meanwhile, evidence has surfaced that everyone involved in this sordid meeting knew just how inappropriate it was. Not only did Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch keep it secret until a reporter asked her about it, but FBI agents were forbidding US citizens from taking pictures of the secret meeting.

For what reason? On what authority?

Marc Thiessen just noted on FoxNews that this must be the first meeting with a president which has ever happened where the person meeting with the president didn't take a selfie and post it on Twitter.

Why was that, do you think? Do you think they just wanted to keep their discussion of grandchildren and golf private?
