All the time, judges recuse themselves, prosecutors step down from cases, and attorneys refuse clients, all for what is called "conflict of interest."
Clinton alleges that his conversation with Lynch was "casual," (as if anyone believes that) including subjects like children, grand-parenting, and other things that you would expect friends to talk about. This relationship clearly outlines what in any other situation would be labeled a conflict of interest.
Clinton was exonerated of perjury by the senate. He was exonerated of something that the entire nation saw him do. I think he believes he is truly untouchable.
Inasmuch as Attorney General Loretta Lynch is directly involved in investigating Hillary Clinton on serious charges, any private conference with Mr. Clinton is unethical, whether planned or coincidental. To shun the appearance of unethical conduct, the pair could have chosen to meet and speak only in the presence of the media, who were apparently present at the airport. Mr. Clinton obviously does not want to see his wife convicted of any wrongdoing, which is natural. However, I believe he would use any influence he may have to privately prevent that. In that light, his actions were unethical. AG Lynch should not entertain any personal, private meetings with either Clinton off-the-record.
Given Loretta Lynch's involvement in the investigation of Hillary Clinton, it appears a potential conflict of interest for Bill Clinton to meet with Loretta Lynch. Even if there was no discussion regarding the case, it raises the question whether her investigation will be fair and unbiased. It would be best to avoid meeting with her until the investigation is over. This would remove speculation of biased opinions in the case.
Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch should not be in contact with each other unless it has to do with the investigation of Hillary Clinton. It is a conflict of interest. Bill Clinton is too close to Hillary to be meeting with a highly ranked public official who is looking into his wife's life. If he becomes friendly with Lynch, it could cause her to lose focus on the investigation, possibly swaying the outcome.
All he was doing was asking is she smoked cigars. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
There are a limited number of people in the circle within which people such as the attorney general and Mr. Clinton run. If a tarmac meeting was the best they could do, so be it. Both parties are wise and savvy enough to know that nothing they did would go unnoticed, and the any fallout directly traceable to that meeting would negatively impact both.
