Lynch the sheriff

"EXCLUSIVE: Security Source Details Bill Clinton Maneuver to Meet Loretta Lynch" (my emphasis in red on how Clinton ambushed Lynch, albeit sourced from Trump's son-in-law's organ):
"According to the source, the FBI agents protecting Lynch “knew former POTUS was in town and another executive was coming and knew Lynch was coming so we knew there’d be congestion. We were waiting for her plane to touch down at the executive terminal area of Phoenix’s Sky Harbor where it’s best suited to control. Clinton’s plane was on the ground already. But he wasn’t there. We had been hoping to get him out before she arrived, just to avoid too much traffic. They [their planes] were 75 yards apart. We have a procedure we do to clear [space for] a motorcade. As we were ready to receive her, I saw the other motorcade coming in—we were like, ‘great timing.’ ”
The source was being sarcastic in saying “great timing,” indicating that it would have been better logistically for Clinton’s plane to take off before Lynch’s arrived, to avoid the congestion of two motorcades on the tarmac at once. The source indicated that Clinton’s people at the airport didn’t know what was taking Clinton’s motorcade so long to arrive and speculated that the delay was engineered specifically so that Clinton would not have left before Lynch arrived.
“Then I see Clinton walking over. His detail guys ran over to hers and said he’s coming. ‘He’s closing.’ He walked straight there to the Air Force guy at the door and next thing I know he’s going up the steps [of her plane].” Asked about the Air Force detail, the source later clarified to the Observer that “There was an Air Force airman at the base of the stairs of the [Lynch] aircraft, as you always see on TV with POTUS.”
According to the source, “Nobody knew this was coming. We just knew to be aware there were other events going on. There was no planned meeting. It was just chance contact. The fact is, he just started walking over. I don’t think it was pre-arranged. He just started walking over and [even her security] can’t tell him, ‘you can’t do that.’ He walked in her plane for at least 20 to 25 minutes and the FBI is standing face to face with the Secret Service and just chatting on the hot tarmac like, ‘what the hell.’”
Regarding the reaction and its aftermath, the source told the Observer, “I didn’t think of the political ramifications, just the timing, ’cause we had other things to do. He [Clinton] came off and shook the hands of the heads of Lynch’s detail. Then her detail finally got her off the plane, now much delayed, and departed for her day’s events. She had a series of visits planned for Tuesday.”
The source said that the impromptu visit made an immediate impression upon Lynch’s staff (meaning her non-security personnel).
“I don’t agree with her politics and all that, but I knew from the beginning that she got caught off guard and her staff was already talking about it that it’s going to be a political problem for her. Her staff was flipping out. We didn’t think about the political part until we saw her staff flipping out. For the security guys, it was more of a ‘I’ve got armed guys coming into my perimeter’ problem. But the staff guys saw right away that it was a political problem. After Clinton got off, they were like, ‘that wasn’t good.’ And I know from others who were in the actual car with her that her people knew immediately the political ramifications of it and were very upset.”"
Tweet (Donald J. Trump) (unconfirmed, but a likely scenario, with the leak coming from the FBI):
"Bill Clinton's meeting was a total secret. Nobody was to know about it but he was caught by a local reporter."
Bill's rather clever plan, to get Lynch in private - a phone call could be taped - where he could promise her a big future in the Clinton administration, and a ruined life if she defied them, seems to have backfired badly, as it forced Lynch to react immediately in a failed attempt at proving she was not completely corrupt (although I'm confident Lynch hasn't forgotten Bill's threats and promises).

Tweet (Bret Baier):
"FBI source to Fox: Agents are "livid" about plane meeting-not just optics, but BCltn is possible target-witness in Foundation investigation"

Tweet (Michael Tracey):
 "Presumptive nominee grilled by the FBI for 3.5 hours a few weeks before the convention. Normally you'd expect this to be cause for concern."
To hide the story, and the embarrassment of the Clinton questioning, the (((media))) immediately turned a sheriff's badge - an American hint at corruption - into a Star of David. The stark irony, of course, is that a Star of David would have been completely appropriate given the fact that Hillary's donors are predominantly Jews who donate massive amounts of  money to Hillary expecting Wars For The Jews in return.
