“Crooked Hillary” Clinton ordered her husband Bill to collude with US Attorney General Loretta Lynch last week during a discreet airplane meeting, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump alleged Sunday.
The likely GOP nominee blasted the notorious Clinton – Lynch tarmac encounter, claiming Bill is “not in trouble” for following Hillary’s orders, except for the fact he was caught.
The inappropriate meeting was made all the worse, Trump said, by the FBI forbidding reporters from documenting the encounter.
(Interesting to note, the gag order imposed by the FBI on reporters at the Phoenix airport was not a topic covered on Sunday morning news shows such as NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS’s Face The Nation, ABC’s This Week or CNN’s State of the Union, according to Infowars analysis.)
Trump also took issue with “Sleepy Eyes” Chuck Todd’s biased coverage Sunday, dismissing the attacks because “the people get” the media’s lies.
According to Trump, Bill Clinton was meeting with Lynch to work out a deal for his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is currently under federal investigation for sending classified State Department information through a private server.
On Saturday, Trump said he’d received word the FBI probe into the Democrat presidential frontrunner would be dismissed, adding that “the system is totally rigged.”
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday, Clinton commented that she learned about the “short chance” meeting “on the news,” that both Lynch and her husband said “they would not do it again,” and said, “Hindsight is 20/20.”
The tarmac controversy, criticized by both Democrats and Republicans, has done little to help Hillary’s favorability which was already suffering in “trust” polls, with one NBC/Wall Street Journal survey last month showing 69 percent concerned she is “untrustworthy.”
“On the political fallout,” NBC News reported Saturday, “the latest NBC News/WSJ poll shows Donald Trump leading Clinton 41%-25% on the question of who would be better at ‘being honest and straightforward.’”
Trump himself has lobbied for criminal charges against the former First Lady, with the latest airplane debacle only working to embolden his stance on the issue.
“It is impossible for the FBI not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “What she did was wrong! What Bill did was stupid!”
