    Fox News ^ | June 30, 2016
    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Thursday that reports of a private meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton left him "flabbergasted." Lynch and Clinton met on Lynch's plane after she landed at the Phoenix airport Monday evening. Lynch has denied that the two spoke about the ongoing FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state. However, Republicans and Democrats have criticized her for creating a possible conflict of interest, and some lawmakers have called for Lynch to recuse herself from the investigation.
  • ĎAssault Weaponsí Ban, Firearms Licensing Did Not Stop Terrorist with AK-47 in Istanbul(T)

    Turkey, which recently suffered an attack in the Istanbul airport by a terrorist with an AK-47, has a complete prohibition on private ownership of semiautomatic rifles, firearm licensing requirements, and background checks. In American leftist lingo, an AK-47, a type of semiautomatic rifle, is an ďassault weapon.Ē AK-47s are completely banned from private possession. That, however, did not keep a terrorist from getting one. And that alone highlights the foolishness of House Speaker Paul Ryanís (R-Wisc.) pursuit of more gun control following the June 12 Orlando terror attack. In fact, the gun controls in Turkey are so strict that a...

She said they talked about golf and grandchildren but not the looming criminal case against Hillary Clinton. The revelations about the meeting promptly triggered a groundswell of demands that Lynch recuse herself from any decision...

    On Tuesday Attorney General Loretta Lynch met former President Bill Clinton at a Phoenix airport where they held a discussion that lasted at least thirty minutes. Lynchís explanation for her meeting with Clinton was that it was entirely coincidental and they mainly discussed his two infant grandchildren. This is unconvincing if not preposterous. When Loretta Lynch opens her mouth to speak on a public policy issue, she, like her boss the president, is not likely to be telling the truth. So we can pretty confidently presume that something else topped the agenda, to wit: a forthcoming referral of criminal charges...
