Real News About a Fake Name

Former AG Loretta Lynch used an alias to send official email, and reporters offered to help spin that tarmac meeting.

We’re shocked — shocked — to report that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used an alias to send official email. This was a common practice in Barack Obama’s administration. Lois Lerner, Eric Holder and even Obama himself used pseudonyms in official emails. Lynch’s attorney, Robert Raben, swears her practice was totally innocuous — to avoid “inundation of mailboxes” with spam and such — and that Justice Department staffers processing Freedom of Information Act requests were aware of Lynch’s alias. Of course we all know that the Most Transparent Administration in History™ wasn’t, as its members insist, “scandal free,” but used aliases and other obstruction tactics to hide all sorts of unsavory and politically inconvenient things from the public. The most guilty of all was Hillary Clinton and her infamous private email server.

In Lynch’s case, the alias was revealed after Judicial Watch and the American Center for Law and Justice, two conservative watchdogs, obtained 413 pages of DOJ documents. Those documents revealed Lynch’s Elizabeth Carlisle’s coordination with other DOJ officials about how to spin her clandestine tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton in June 2016 — at the height of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary’s emails. Just days after the meeting in which Clinton and Lynch insisted they discussed their grandchildren, Lynch’s subordinate, FBI Director James Comey, announced that the agency had plenty of evidence to pursue Hillary Clinton but would not do so. One of the main reasons was that pseudonymous Obama was guilty too. Shortly thereafter, Lynch also announced the DOJ wouldn’t pursue the Clinton Foundation for its shady relationship with the Clinton State Department, despite FBI recommendations.

Another part of the story here is the Leftmedia. Reporters for The New York Times, The Washington Post and ABC News all emailed Lynch to explain that tarmac meeting. In the words of Post reporter Matt Zapotosky, he was “hoping to put it to rest.” It’s not a stretch to read that as an offer to assist in the cover-up. What was that about the Post’s new motto, “Democracy Dies in Darkness”? And can anyone imagine the media ever putting the phony Trump/Russia collusion “to rest”?
