Loretta Lynch is beholden to the Clintons. Bill Clinton appointed Ms. Lynch to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York in 1999, jump-starting her career with the White House. It isn’t a well-known fact Loretta Lynch was a litigation partner for eight years at a Washington law firm that served the Clintons. Loretta Lynch was with the international law firm Hogan & Hartson LLP from March of 2002 to April of 2010. Lynch has refused to suggest her relations with the Clinton’s is a conflict of interest. (The average person would think there is a conflict.)

Last Monday Ms. Lynch sat with the Bill Clinton, inside her plane, for half an hour, and stated they discussed children, golf and Janet Reno. According to one source, the FBI was on the tarmac just outside Lynch’s plane, telling everyone, including journalists, “No photos, no pictures, no cell phones.” (Does Loretta Lynch really get her own private plane as a government employee? There is some confusion as to who owns the plane she was flying on and used as a meeting place with Bill Clinton.)

Attorney General Lynch is currently in the position of determining what needs to be done about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. If she blows the investigation off, it will be seen as loyalty to the Clintons at the expense of the American justice system. Both Bill and Hillary stand are involved with several criminal and corruption probes, Former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova stated,

the former President “is at least a witness in two criminal investigations, probably a subject in two criminal investigations. He is a person of interest officially to the Department of Justice.” 

It should come as no surprise many of Hillary Clinton’s closest associates are being investigated for ethics violations. While Hillary Clinton has publicly supported campaign finance reform, much of her success in the primaries is due to a corrupt system, enabling her to raise funds without concern for ethics. For example, the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint committee supported by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, was recently revealed to be laundering money to the Clinton campaign to circumvent campaign finance laws. Bernie Sanders’ campaign has also highlighted additional violations and ethical breaches made by the Hillary Victory Fund.

The question becomes, is Loretta Lynch acting in any way to prevent the Clintons from being damaged by the investigation? Is her loyalty to the Clintons, or to the American people. The idea there is no conflict of interest in Loretta Lynch overseeing the Clinton investigation is essentially a polite fiction no one in a position of authority, or in the major news outlets, is willing to question.
