Why Did Bill Clinton Meet With Attorney General Loretta Lynch?

On June 30, 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with President Bill Clinton at an airport in Phoenix, AZ. The meeting has caused a stir since the Justice Department is investigating Hillary Clinton's private email server. The meeting gives the appearance that the Justice Department's investigation may have been compromised.

The Attorney General reassured reporters there were no improprieties stating, "It was primarily social and about our travels." The word "primarily" tells us that it was more than social and about their travels. This does not mean they discussed the investigation into Hillary's email sever but they did discuss something she had not shared with the public.
