The highly suspicious and often questioned meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton “on the tarmac” had resulted in the FBI conducting a “mole hunt” — attempting to find the source of the controversial meeting between the two.
According to emails released by Judicial Watch, agents within the FBI were not happy about the revealing article via the New York Observer which contained the details of the meeting.
So their consider was more-so about how it was leaked and not the unwarranted meeting in the first place?
The internal FBI emails show that an FBI official in the security division was forwarded the Observer article on July 2, 2016, the same day that Hillary Clinton was interviewed by FBI agents.
The emails show that FBI agents believed that the source for the article was a Phoenix police officer who helped Lynch and Clinton’s motorcades.
“Needless to say that I have contacted the Phoenix office and will contact the local’s [sic] who assisted in an attempt to stem any further damage. This is exactly why our Discretion and Judgement are the foundation’ of the AG’s trust in our team, which is why we can never violate that trust, like the source did in this article,” wrote one FBI security division agent.
Other emails show frustration within the FBI over the article, which asserted that Clinton waited on the airport tarmac for Lynch to arrive at the Phoenix airport.
“We need to find that guy and bring him or her before a supervisor,” read one email.
“Hopefully we will find out and at the very minimum, make sure he never works on any detail,”
One agent asked if “there will be a need for non-disclosure agreements in the future?”
“That might not be a band idea, given the circumstances,” the official responded.
