Lynch Busted in new email cover-up
Walter W. Murray
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch [in Obama administration] has just been BUSTED in a desperate attempt to cover-up a highly unethical and legally questionable meeting last year.
During the height of the 2016 campaign, as her Justice Department investigated criminal allegations against failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Lynch had a secret tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton at an airport in Phoenix.
Naturally, they insist they didn’t talk about the investigation.
Yet they suspiciously went through a lot of effort to try to hide the whole thing — and the meeting itself was only revealed thanks to a sharp-eyed local reporter at the scene.
Now, internal emails newly obtained by a watchdog organization reveal the extent to which the feds tried to cover up this mess after it was exposed… including messages sent by the attorney general herself under a SECRET name!
The emails obtained by the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) through a Freedom of Information Act request turned up messages to and from someone named “Elizabeth Carlisle” as higher-ups tried to manipulate talking points around this shady story.
The heavily redacted emails show panic at the highest levels when they realize the story of the secret meeting was going to break, and eventually “Elizabeth Carlisle” is looped into the chain.
There was no one in the department with that name, but The Daily Caller has confirmed that Elizabeth Carlisle was secretly Loretta Lynch.
In case there were any doubts, however, one email practically spills the beans.
“Thanks to all who worked on this,” said a reply from the Elizabeth Carlisle account.
But the email wasn’t signed “Elizabeth,” “Liz” or “Beth.”
It was signed “AG” — as in attorney general.
This little name game isn’t illegal, but it certainly is sneaky and seems intended to help Lynch cover her tracks in two sinister ways.
First, any would-be whistleblowers in her department forwarding her messages wouldn’t be able to “prove” that the emails came from Lynch, since the digital trail would point to someone named Elizabeth Carlisle.
And second, the phony name masks her involvement, making it harder for watchdogs such as the ACLJ to obtain key documents.
Filing a Freedom of Information Act request for “Loretta Lynch” communications on a certain topic – including this one – could mean that “Elizabeth Carlisle” documents wouldn’t be turned over.
This seems to have been a habit in the Barack Obama administration. Her predecessor, Eric Holder, used the alias “Lew Alcinder.” Former EPA administrator Lisa Jackson liked to masquerade digitally as “Richard Windsor,” while scandal-plagued IRS official Lois Lerner used her dog’s name, “Toby Miles,” for email.
Even those just outside the administration made up fantasy names for communications.
Chelsea Clinton sent emails as “Diane Reynolds” when writing to her mother, perhaps to cover up her role as an unofficial and unapproved informal “advisor” outside the oversight of Congress.
Even Obama himself was busted using a phony name, according to a 2016 report in Politico!
The ACLJ has hinted that there could be more explosive revelations still to come.
“The Obama-Lynch DOJ is still hiding the truth from the public. But we’re cutting through the deceit and deception. We will get to the bottom of the unethical corrupt actions of former Attorney General Lynch,” the organization vowed. “We will hold those responsible for the lawless Obama DOJ accountable.”

Department of Justice had Panicked
I had this yesterday. We found there were 413 pages of emails associated with it. Bill Clinton met Loretta Lynch for a half hour in the airport tarmac in Phoenix, and James Comey lied to news agencies seeking Freedom of Information Act requests — or making those requests — for any evidence, any documents surrounding the meeting.
Comey said: There aren’t any. There’s no paperwork. There was a meeting on the tarmac. Four-hundred and thirteen emails — well, 413 pages. Don’t know how many emails. And it turns out these people are using aliases, fake names so that they would not be discovered.
“When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Bill Clinton were busted secretly meeting aboard Lynch’s private plane last summer by a local television reporter, a number of government watchdog groups filed lawsuits for documents surrounding the meeting.” The FBI, under James Comey, denied any such documents existed.
“Fast forward more than a year and it turns out hundreds of documents related to the meeting do exist and show the Department was in a panic over how to respond to inquiries about why the meeting took place. … At least one reporter from the Washington Post expressed interested in putting the story to ‘rest.'”
The Drive-By Media was calling the DOJ asking how can we help you suppress this. I kid you not. How can we help you put this story aside? How can we help you bury it, essentially?
“The talking points used to defend the meeting have been fully redacted, even with Attorney General Jeff Sessions in charge.”
Why? Were they discussing matters of national security? Why are the things Loretta Lynch and Clinton were saying to each other redacted in these documents? Why redact a discussion about grandchildren? That’s what Lynch said they were talking about. She doesn’t have any, but Clinton does. He has at least two that we know about. Why redact that?
“Just days after the meeting took place; former FBI Director James Comey announced Hillary Clinton would not be referred for charges because prosecutors at the Department of Justice were highly unlikely to take on the case.” Nobody would bring charges, he said, ’cause she didn’t intend to do anything wrong. We come to find out that these emails; the people involved were using fake names to disguise themselves. That happened a lot, by the way, in the Obama administration.
It was Matt Zapotosky at the Washington Post who asked for a few more details about the meeting because he was hoping to put the story to rest. He said, look, I want to help you put this to rest, but my editors are still pretty interested in it. So the media was trying to help Loretta Lynch bury this, and they were asking for any support they could get to help put this thing to rest.
I still can’t get over this many pages. What in the name of Sam Hill was being talked about here? And why all of that paper to document it? It’s not the kind of stuff that we’re gonna see in a presidential library someday. I just can’t imagine generating that kind of paper. There’s not a single person with whom I communicate email-wise or otherwise over the course of my life about which there would be 413 pages of it. And yet one 30-minute meeting generates all that?
I know I’m naive, but that to me is incomprehensible. And if a 30-minute meeting on the tarmac generates this kind of paperwork, can you imagine the paperwork a normal presidential day, a Department of Justice day generates? No wonder these presidential libraries have to be so damn huge. This is still astounding to me.
