Bill Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting 'Bothered' Comey, So He Turned a Blind Eye

James Comey admits he didn't ask Hillary about Bill Clinton's infamous meeting with Loretta Lynch

Former FBI Director James Comey admitted during his closed-door testimony that Bill Clinton's now-infamous tarmac meeting with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch "bothered" him, so he decided to turn a blind eye rather than question Hillary about it.

The transcript from last week's interview with Congressional lawmakers shows Comey admits that he "was very concerned" by Lynch's meet with the former president on an airport runway, yet, he still didn’t direct FBI agents interviewing Hillary Clinton to ask her about it.

Despite failing to quiz Hillary about the "unusual" rendezvous, Comey claims the incident did, in fact, bother him enough to make an insubordinate move to cut Lynch out of plans to clear Hillary.

Comey conceded that after learning of the “highly unusual” meeting, red flags were raised, saying: “I was very concerned.”

According to The Daily Caller, Comey mentioned Lynch with regard to the Clinton investigation in his book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” but said then that he had ultimately concluded that she had not interfered.

He appeared to contradict himself, however, when he referenced still classified information, which he said was unverified but “would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation.”

In addition to his comments about Lynch and Clinton’s meeting, Comey noted that he would not have allowed Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to continue with their role in the investigation.

“Based on what I saw,” he started, “—have seen in the media since I left the FBI — that unless there was some explanation for that that I was missing, in my judgment, they wouldn’t have remained part of the investigation.”

After the transcript of Comey's testimony was published on Saturday, the former FBI chief spoke out against the president, urging American voters to remove Donald Trump from the White House with a "landslide victory" for his opponent in 2020.

Comey, who was talking during a speech Sunday in New York City, begged Democrats to cast aside ideological differences in order to defeat Trump in the 2020 election.

"I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be," Comey told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, "but they have to win.

"They have to win."

Comey, who last week responded to key questions on the Russia probe with "I don't know" or "I don't remember" during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, decried Trump's character at every opportunity.

When asked if Robert Mueller has found evidence that Trump may be a co-conspirator in crimes described by the special counsel, Comey said he didn't know, "but if he's not there, he's certainly close."
