Lynch: I Regret Meeting With Bill Clinton

During Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s exit interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, she was asked about her meeting with former President Bill Clinton over the summer. The meeting happened while the FBI was still investigating Hillary Clinton’s email practices.

Tapper asked Lynch if she regretted meeting with the former president, because it gave the appearance that the Clintons were above the law to some voters.

“I do regret sitting down and having a conversation with him, because it did give people concern,” Lynch told Tapper.

“I wish I had seen around that corner and not had that discussion with the former president – as innocuous as it was – because it did give people concern,” Lynch went on to say. “It did make people wonder: is it going to affect the investigation that’s going on? And that’s not something that was an unreasonable question for anyone to ask.”
