Attorney General Loretta Lynch wishes have never had a private meeting with former President Bill Clinton at a Phoenix airport this week because people have called into question the fairness and impartiality of Justice Department.
At the annual Ideas, Festival in Colorado, Lynch said she would accept whatever recommendations were handed to her by career prosecutors and FBI investigators on whether to charge Hilary Clinton for using private email server for government business while she was secretary of state.
She said she certainly would not do it again because the controversial event has cast this shadow over “what if should not over what it will not touch.”
“It is important to remark that the meeting with former President Clinton does not have a bearing on have this matter will be reviewed and resolved,” said Lynch.
Nevertheless, according to a campaign source, former President Clinton had been in Phoenix for a fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign when he ran into Attorney General Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
Since her meeting with Clinton on Monday, Republicans have citizen this action as something that should not have taken place, especially when Justice Department is conducting an investigation on the presumptive presidential nominee Hilary Clinton.
Judicial Watch- a conservative legal watchdog group- has highly criticized Attorney General’s meeting with Bill Clinton as an offense of ethical standards, sound judgment, and law.
Although Attorney General said that the meeting with Clinton was merely social. She stated that they just talked about grandchildren and golf, she understands people`s reaction towards this meeting, as she says she would not ever do it again.
In response to the polemic reactions, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, Texas Sen. John Corny, has called for a special counsel to talk about Hilary Clinton’s accusations and the incident with Lynch and former president Clinton.
“This incident does nothing to instill confidence in the American people that her department can fully and fairly conduct this investigation, and that’s why a special counsel is needed now more than ever,” Corny said in a statement.
As for White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, the private email server issue is an independent investigation that has nothing to do with politics. He said that the investigations that are being carried out by federal officers have not had political interference.
Democratic Sen. Chris Coons told CNN that he is confident about Lynch impartiality and objectivity although the meeting has sent the wrong signal. He believes Lynch might have some something like “this is not the time” when talking to Bill Clinton regarding what is going on the Justice Department.
Hilary Clinton might be interviewed by federal officers next weekend
— Fox News (@FoxNews) July 1, 2016
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hilary Clinton might be interviewed in the following days for accusations of using her private email for government business when she was secretary of state.
It is rumored that the FBI might be finishing the investigations about Hilary Clinton’s issue. According to The Daily Caller, Clinton will meet the FBI on Saturday. They say that this event could take place at Clinton’s home in Washington, D.C.
Since there are not any campaign events scheduled on Clinton’s agenda for this weekend, it is expected that the FBI visits Mrs. Clinton.
With this interview, federal officials will be able to decide whether to file Hilary Clinton for the private server email issue. In case Hillary will be charged, this will have a significant impact on her political career.
It is said that Clinton gave to federal government 30,000 emails from her private server, in which roughly 1 in 15 of them have been classified as the highest level of sensitive.
Federals have given some sort of immunity to Bryan Pagano, the former State Department information technology specialist who it is believed to have created and minted Clinton-1s private server in her basement located in New York, for helping with the investigation.
Donald Trump does not believe in Clinton and Lynch’s social meeting.

Although Lynch has denied any conversation about the email case of Hillary Clinton with former president Bill Clinton, for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, the social meeting about golf and grandchildren former president Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch just seems unrealistic.
Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit Donald Trump said that the first time he heard about this polemic incident he thought it was just a joke.
“I love my grandchildren, but if I talk about them for more than nine or 10 seconds, after that, what are you going to say?,” he added.
He also stated that even though he loved golf talking about it for a long time would be tough.
Also, Trump wrote on a tweet Friday that the system was totally rigged as he wondered if there was anybody that really believed the meeting was just a coincidence.
