Fitton: 'Deep State' Doesn't Want to Release Damaging Records on Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said he is skeptical the FBI has a good explanation for not previously releasing documents on the controversial tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and former attorney general Loretta Lynch.
"There may be an innocent explanation as to why these records were missing, but I find that to be a highly unlikely possibility," Fitton said on "Outnumbered Overtime" Monday.
The meeting came around when Hillary Clinton was investigated for her private email server use and raised questions of collusion between the Justice Department and the Clintons.
Judicial Watch sued the FBI and Justice Department for the records earlier this year and was told no such records existed.
This week the FBI said it found 30 new pages of records on the meeting, which the agency says it will release in November.
"We're not asking for state secrets. We want to know what the government was up to on this corruption issue," Fitton said.
"It's my view that the deep state doesn't want to release these records," he said. "You see it with the Clinton issues, you see it with the Obama issues, and you frankly see it with the Trump-Russia issues because I think they know releasing the records would hurt people they like, like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama."
Lynch will testify to Congress on the meeting this week.
