Former prosecutor Jeanine Pirro slams Clinton’s arrogance over meeting with Loretta Lynch
Investigators with the Federal Bureau of Investigation wish to have a chitchat Saturday with Democratic Party presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton about her private email server.
It’s the latest progress in the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s reported mishandling of classified information.
A source told FLI that the interview is likely to take place this weekend at Clinton’s residence in Washington, D.C.
FBI investigators have currently questioned several Clinton aides, which includes former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin. Agents also talked with Bryan Pagliano, a former State Department information technology specialist who dealt with Clinton’s server.
The meeting arrives only days after Attorney general Loretta Lynch met in secret with former President Bill Clinton on the tarmac of the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona.
As WND reported, Washington watchdog Judicial Watch is currently inquiring the Department of Justice inspector general to investigate what was stated at the off-the-record meeting.
“Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton severely undermined the already low public confidence in her agency’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “In addition to this IG investigation, Judicial Watch has already sent Freedom of Information Act requests about this scandalous meeting.”
Judicial Watch continues to be a key player in the continuing tension on authorities to investigate Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information through a private email server while she was secretary of state.
It was a Judicial Watch case in the hunt for government records that exposed Clinton’s homebrew email system. Judicial Watch is currently taking depositions from Clinton’s aides.
A federal judge has left open the probability that Hillary Clinton might end up being deposed in the case.
The new complaint about Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton cites “18 USC §§ 202 – 209; Executive Order 12674 on Principles of Ethical Conduct as amended by EO 12731; Uniform Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch, 5 CFR Part 2635; Department of Justice regulations, 5 CFR Part 3801; Department of Justice regulations, 28 CFR Part 45; Executive branch standards of conduct, 5 USC § 735; and, United States Department of Justice Ethics Handbook for On and Off-Duty Conduct, 14 Principles for Ethical Conduct.”
The law states employees “shall endeavor to avoid any actions creating the appearance that they are violating the law or the ethical standards set forth in this part.”
“Whether particular circumstances create an appearance that the law or these standards have been violated shall be determined from the perspective of a reasonable person with knowledge of the relevant facts.”
And federal employees are advised “to avoid any actions creating the appearance that the employee is violating the law or the ethical standards set forth in this part.”
The New York Times on Friday documented on Lynch’s effort to defuse the controversy by stating she will “accept” the recommendations of “career prosecutors” in the Clinton case.
“Her decision removes the possibility that a political appointee will overrule investigators in the case,” the report stated.
As WND reported, Judge Jeanine Pirro, the longtime prosecutor and judge who is now a host for Fox News, on Friday stated Lynch’s comments on her private meeting with Bill Clinton suggest Hillary won’t be charged over her private email server.
