This meeting sends all the wrong messages to the American people. If anyone was thinking Hillary would get a fair and just trial this should be an eye opener. They will do whatever possible to make sure the email issue goes away. Bill Clinton knew this was wrong and also did Loretta Lynch. Neither of them tried to avoid the situation and frankly neither of them cares we know they meet. Am I the only who thinks this smells of corruption?

At the time, Lynch claimed they talked about grandchildren, travels and the like – but not the looming case that could result in federal criminal charges against Hillary Clinton over her decision to run secret government information through an unsecured and hackable private email system.

The determinations and findings by career investigators will be"reviewed" by senior career lawyers in the Justice Department and FBI Director James Comey, who will then brief the findings to Lynch, according to the Justice Department.

It is the attorney general's fault the meeting happened. She should have denied to see Mr. Clinton. For Clinton to even suggest meeting her is just disturbing and highly questionable. He knew exactly what he was doing and she failed to close the door.

According to this source, whose credentials were checked and confirmed by the Observer with sources inside both the FBI and the United States Secret Service, the attorney general was caught completely off guard by the meeting and the source dismisses suggestions that have been raised alleging that she waited there to see Bill Clinton or accommodated his request to see him. In fact, it seems from this source that it was Bill Clinton who was maneuvering for face time with the attorney general, because his plane had been scheduled to leave before hers arrived.

This does not look good for Hillary. She has enough going on and this just adds to the plate. She already has to answer Trump questions everywhere she goes now we will never hear what she really has to say.

When I saw this I just shook my head. Some things just should not happen. We all know that this was not by chance either. I like the attorney general but I know she is lying about the meeting but she was put in a no win situation I feel.

They both were to blame but I don't see this changing anything in the Hillary case. We all know she is not going to jail no matter what happens. I hope she didn't do anything to put this country in jeopardy. As long as she didn't do that I am fine with her making this go away.

Yet she acknowledged that both the former president and attorney general have admitted"they wouldn't do it again.""Hindsight is 20/20," Clinton said.

For a politician long praised for his political smarts, it was a striking error of judgment on Clinton’s part to walk to Lynch’s plane for any kind of conversation. It was a similarly huge lapse on the part of the attorney general, who was appointed by Clinton as a U.S. attorney in 1999, to allow him to come aboard for any kind of conversation.

Lynch has tried to make amends, though not without leaving some confusion in her wake. In a conversation Friday with Washington Post editorial writer Jonathan Capehart at the Aspen Ideas Festival, she insisted again that the conversation was innocent — about grandchildren and golf and such — and did not touch on the investigation of the emails.

She is not going to step aside that is for sure. The United States’ top law enforcement officer, however, stopped short of saying she would recuse herself from the investigation of the Democratic presidential candidate.

All of this just seems like a cover up. Looks like the Clintons have dodged another bullet. I think they have the FBI in their back pockets so whatever that reports says it will be in favor of Hillary. You watch and see.

Bill was targeting her but she would have been strong enough to tell him no. This one is on her. She got played by the Clintons. She should not feel to bad a lot of people have fallen into that trap.

It amazes me how the people we put in charge and are suppose to be educated can do the most stupid things. They are obviously not held to the same standard that we are and get away with stuff like this all the time. How can we trust any of you people if you can't even stop messing up in front of 100s of cameras. It terrifies me to think what you do when we are not looking.

This really felt like a set up. A few days after this happens they pretty much closed the case. I am not saying it is set up but just left a bad taste in my mouth.

Of course Bill Clinton is doing everything he can to help his wife. The Attorney General should have seen that coming. I do agree he had no reason to do this in public. I am sure he can find her and get to her in private, but he just wanted to flex his muscles.

They should be both be ashamed the american people had to see this. So uncalled for in todays's politics.

I think everyone got what they expected. The attorney general needed an escape to not bring charges on Hillary and the FBI gave it to her. Bill wanted to flex his muscles and he did without any revocation from the government.

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, went so far as to accuse Hillary Clinton of having"bribed" Lynch with the possibility that she might stay on as attorney general in a Clinton administration.
