The reporter who broke the story about the secret meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Fox News that FBI officials on the tarmac instructed those on the tarmac “no photos, no pictures, no cell phones.”
Lynch’s Department of Justice is currently investigating the former president’s wife for her use of a private email server. Clinton and Lynch met privately for 30 minutes on her plane at the Phoenix airport.
Lynch claims their conversation was merely social. VIDEO: Why Did Bill Clinton And Loretta Lynch Meet On Her Airplane In Phoenix This Week?
Christopher Sign, the anchor for ABC 15 in Phoenix who broke the story, told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly Thursday, “She arrives, some people step off of her plane, the former president steps into her plane. They then speak for 30 minutes privately, the FBI there on the tarmac instructing everybody around, ‘no photos, no pictures, no cell phones.'”
Lynch told reporters the pair discussed their grandchildren and the former president’s golf game. But Sign told O’Reilly he has yet to find evidence Clinton golfed when in Phoenix.
“The attorney general, as a matter of fact, she said they talked about him playing golf,” Sign continued. “At this very moment, as I’m talking to you, I’ve reached out to several sources, those with intimate knowledge of his movements because they work with these dignitaries when they come into Phoenix, not one so far has said that he played golf. I’m not saying he didn’t play golf. I’m just saying I’ve yet to confirm that he did play golf.
Lynch signaled through a department official Friday that she will follow whatever recommendation the FBI ultimately makes in the criminal probe.
