Hillary: Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton Meeting ‘Purely Social’ — Talked About Grandkids, Golf

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said the controversial meeting between her husband former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch at a Arizona airport last week was “purely social.”

Clinton said, “Well, I learned about it in the news and it was a short chance meeting at an airport tarmac and both of their planes. As I understand it, were landing on the same tarmac at about the same time. The attorney general’s husband was there. They said hello. their talked about grand-kids, which is very much on our minds these days, golf, their mutual friend, former attorney general Janet Reno. It was purely social. They did not veer off of speaking about those kinds of, you know, very common exchanges.”

She added, “Hindsight is 20/20. Both the attorney general and my husband have said that they wouldn’t do it again, even though it was from all accounts that I have heard and seen, an exchange of pleasantries but nobody wants to see the conclusions drawn and they said they would not do it again.”
