WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — Attorney General Loretta Lynch says she won’t overrule the findings of an FBI-led investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
She also acknowledged that an impromptu meeting this week with Bill Clinton that caused a political firestorm is not something she would do again.
“I certainly wouldn’t do it again,” she said.

Lynch addressed her part in the investigation at a conference in Colorado.
At one point, Lynch was asked by the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart, “What on earth were you thinking?”
Lynch claimed they only spoke about Clinton’s grandkids and the former president’s travel.

She said she understood that her private meeting with Clinton aboard her plane in Phoenix “cast a shadow” over the public perception of the neutrality of the investigation.
“No matter how I viewed it, I understand how other people view it,” she said.
Her pledge seems aimed at tamping down criticism that the investigation is politically tainted.
