Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch’s secret meeting is still under fire — and now a source who was there is revealing what they don’t want the public to know.
The meeting between Clinton and Lynch took place on the runway at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport last Monday. According to a highly-vetted source that was present the entire time, the former president allegedly delayed his departure in order to create the run-in.
The source told the New York Observer in an exclusive interview published on Friday:
“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 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 h*ll’.”
