I sat and read over three or four stories early this morning over the FBI, the Lynch-Clinton documentation from the tarmac meeting to discuss Hillary, and the likely review to come out of this.
Basically, the FBI kept saying for months that no documentation existed from the Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting in late-June of 2016. Then in the last week, they found thirty pages of material and handed it over.
The basic story? Lynch said that the whole meeting was just a casual meeting with Bill coming out to her VIP jet sitting on the tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona....to discuss grandkids, golf and travels. Yeah, I know....it just sounds kinda hokey but she's more or less sworn to that story.
Why on board the jet? I'm guessing it was out of the way from the public and they suspected that no one would spot Bill entering it. It wasn't reported by national press (yeah, that's another odd part of the story). It was the local Channel 15 reporter who spoke to the story, that swept the nation.
The thirty pages? I'm guessing that there's three or four emails, with one final report over the entire trip that Lynch took, and the final report is likely a quarter of this entire thirty pages, with only three lines having to do with Clinton.
I seriously doubt that anything will come out of the thirty pages.
Why Bill had to meet face to face? He has some magnetic personality and thinks he can charm folks with that casual southern charm. So the face-to-face meeting had to be part of the whole game. Since there are no other witnesses to the meeting....you simply have to assume what Lynch wrote....is entirely true.
Ethically? Well, it's one of those episodes that really makes Lynch look bad. A regular person with ethnics would have looked at the potential troubles and just said 'no'.
So you can imagine the next couple of days while some folks pour over thirty pages and come to realize that there's really not much to say....Lynch bumped into Bill....maybe two lines of commentary about grandkids and golf, and she wished Bill good health. A lot of drama, over nothing much.
