Citing a “well-placed source in the FBI,” Fox News anchor Bret Baier reported Friday that FBI agents are “livid” over Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s private meeting with former President Bill Clinton.
However, it’s not just because of how bad it looks amid the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email use.
“Not just because of the optics and the bad appearance, but also because Bill Clinton is a potential target, a potential witness intricately involved in the second part of the investigation,” Baier said. “And that is the corruption investigation into the possible mishandling, misdealings with the Clinton Foundation.”
Though Lynch claimed she and Clinton only talked about “grandchildren,” Baier said “you don’t have to be talking about the substance of investigations to have influence on somebody who is going to make a decision about the end result.”
“It’s a real problem,” he added.
Baier also noted that FBI agents were not please when President Barack Obama prematurely proclaimed there would not be any national security implications related to Clinton’s use of a private email server.
