The James Comey run FBI, and the Department of Justice, under President Barak Obama claimed to not have any more records pertaining to the Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting. Thanks to a lawsuit filed by American Center for Law and Justice, we now know that that was not true. There are now 435 pages of emails that have been released by the Trump Department of Justice. In this article, you get an understanding of what the emails contained. These need to be examined closely. Where were these emails when they were asked for earlier? The Clinton cover-ups seem to continue.

The FBI said earlier such records did not exist.
This discharge of information is the result of a lawsuit filed against the DOJ by the American Council for Law and Justice (ACLJ) in November 2016.
The newly-released emails mostly include DOJ officials’ conversations with reporters, who were seeking comment on the meeting between Lynch and the former president on an airport tarmac in Phoenix, Ariz. in June 2016.
The encounter raised concerns about the impartiality of the DOJ’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton episode, and became a significant issue in the presidential campaign.
The ACLJ notes that under the leadership of then-Director James Comey the FBI had originally denied the existence of such records.
“No records responsive to your request were located,” FBI Chief of Record/Information David Hardy wrote a letter responding to ACLJ’s Freedom of Information Act request.
“For your information, Congress excluded three discrete categories of law enforcement and national security records from the requirements of the FOIA.”
