Attorney General Loretta Lynn hid behind a fake email account as, “Elizabeth Carlisl,” while she was Attorney General. Including during emails with Bill Clinton concerning their famous tarmac meeting last year.
Fox News reported Monday that there was a continuous exchange of emails between former Attorney General Loretta Lynn and former President Bill Clinton, the entire time that Hillary Clinton was under investigation by the Justice Department for her much famous email scandal during the 2016 presidential elections.
Fox News notes, “ Top federal officials using email aliases is not illegal or new, considering others in the former Obama administration also used them, arguing security concerns and spam to their official email addresses swamping their in-boxes.”
In fact, Loretta Lynch’s predecessor, Eric Holder also used a fake email account, “Lew Alcindor,” – which is the name of a Muslim basketball star, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton has been the subject of much speculation, as just days after that meeting, Loretta Lynch’s underling, James Comey famously passed a “not guilty” verdict on Clinton over her email scandal – despite citing numerous reasons why the same crime, by any other individual in government, would result in extremely serious disciplinary actions and legal troubles.
After the tarmac meeting, former FBI Director James Comey concluded that Clinton has been “extremely careless” in her email practices, but did not deserve to be criminally prosecuted for her carelessness.
It was also reported that media outlets like the New York Times and the Washington Post colluded together to squash this story. Neither outlet wished to damage the reputation of Hillary Clinton, or to publish anything but a constant stream of saccharine praise for the former First Lady.
In an email exchange between a New Times reporter and a reported for the Washington post with DOJ officials reveal that, in an email on the 30th of June, Mark Landler, a White House correspondent with the Times, addressed him concerns to a DOJ official and indicated that his editors had “pressed” him “into service to write about the questions being raised” about the meeting. Additionally, Matt Zapotosky, a national security reporter for the Post wrote to the DOJ indicating that “My editors are still pretty interested in it and I’m hoping to put it to rest by answering just a few more questions about how the meeting came about-who approached who, how did they realize they were in the same place.”
After the story of the tarmac meeting was reported, and especially after the meeting resulted in Comey’s bazar acquittal of Clinton, Lynch was forced to respond. Lynch said, in an interview with CNN, “I do regret sitting down and having a conversation with him, because it did give people concern. And as I said, my greatest concern has always been making sure that people understand that the Department of Justice works in a way that is independent and looks at everybody equally.”
