Judge Nap on Clinton-Lynch Meeting: 'Profound' Appearance of Impropriety
Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted with disbelief on Fox Business Network to the meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton.
The two spoke aboard Lynch's plane shortly after the two crossed paths at Phoenix airport in an allegedly impromptu meeting.
Lynch told reporters Tuesday afternoon that their conversation was "primarily social and about our travels" and that "there was no discussion of any matter pending before the department or any matter pending before any other body," including Benghazi or State Department emails.
Though he's on vacation, the Fox News senior judicial analyst spoke by phone to Stuart Varney, who called on Lynch to recuse herself from the case involving Hillary Clinton's private email server.
Napolitano emphasized that Lynch is the top law enforcement officer in the country and that the FBI is also investigating the Clinton Foundation.
He questioned how anyone could believe this was just a "coincidence" for the former president and Lynch to speak in this manner.
"Her agents and lawyers, more than 100 of them, are engaged in two serious criminal investigations of Bill Clinton's wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton. It is inconceivable that she would permit herself to have any kind of contact with the husband of the target of a criminal investigation. The appearance of impropriety is so profound, no one could accept that she is now neutral in this case," he said.
