Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has just been BUSTED in a desperate attempt to cover-up a highly unethical and legally questionable meeting last year.
During the height of the 2016 campaign, as her Justice Department investigated criminal allegations against failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Lynch had a secret tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton at an airport in Phoenix.
Naturally, they insist they didn't talk about the investigation.
Yet they suspiciously went through a lot of effort to try to hide the whole thing — and the meeting itself was only revealed thanks to a sharp-eyed local reporter at the scene.
Now, internal emails newly obtained by a watchdog organization reveal the extent to which the feds tried to cover up this mess after it was exposed… including messages sent by the attorney general herself under a SECRET name!
The emails obtained by the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) through a Freedom of Information Act request turned up messages to and from someone named "Elizabeth Carlisle" as higher-ups tried to manipulate talking points around this shady story.
The heavily redacted emails show panic at the highest levels when they realize the story of the secret meeting was going to break, and eventually "Elizabeth Carlisle" is looped into the chain.
There was no one in the department with that name, but The Daily Caller has confirmed that Elizabeth Carlisle was secretly Loretta Lynch.
In case there were any doubts, however, one email practically spills the beans.
"Thanks to all who worked on this," said a reply from the Elizabeth Carlisle account.
But the email wasn't signed "Elizabeth," "Liz" or "Beth."
It was signed "AG" — as in attorney general.
