If I had told you in 1927 that I saw Eliot Ness secretly meeting with Al Capone, what would you think? Remember that Ness was an agent with the Bureau of Prohibition and Capone ran a large percentage of alcohol in Chicago. It would be natural for you to wonder if Ness was being bought off by Capone. He certainly wouldn’t be the first; Capone owned a number of cops in Chicago. You might look at Eliot Ness a bit differently, right?
On Tuesday of this week, the current Attorney General of the United States, Loretta Lynch was seen meeting with former President Bill Clinton, husband of the presumptive Democratic nominee for President Hillary Clinton. Why would the Attorney General be meeting with the husband of someone the FBI is investigating?
I can’t come up with any reason that would be proper.

A private meeting aboard Lynch’s plane wouldn’t be an appropriate place to question Bill on anything. A random meeting between the two at an Arizona airport as AG Lynch implies. Not likely and why risk the appearance of something improper. Barring the plane being bugged and the release of the tape, we may never know what transpired but let’s look at just a few things that have happened since that meeting:
- Late afternoon on Wednesday, it was announced that a timetable for the release of emails from the Clinton Foundation requested by the FBI might begin about the time Hillary begins her 18th month in office if elected by as President. Well, that could certainly be a huge break for Clinton, knowing how well she handled the emails from the State Department.
- On Thursday. it was discovered that the FEC was looking into allegations that Donald Trump regarding him asking high-ranking foreigners for donations for his run for the office of President. Anyone want to bet those same foreigners also donated to the Clinton Foundation? How curious.
- This morning, it was reported that Hillary would be answering questions from the FBI this weekend. Could Lynch have passed on the questions she was to be asked, or just some minor coaching?
Like I say, we’ll never know for sure what went on aboard that plane, but there is definitely an appearance of impropriety and very likely actual criminal behavior.Tags: Bill Clinton DOJ Hillary Clinton
