Phoenix may indeed be the key to the election, but not in the way of votes for either candidate, no Phoenix may just be the location that shows us how corrupt politics in America really are.
Phoenix also shows us how corrupt our news can be with omissions, outright lies and misleading comments that make criminal actions into simple mistakes that are easily dismissed by the news, the candidates and even our lawmakers and enforcers.
Bill Clinton was in Phoenix on June 27, 2016, where he met with Latino leaders and participated in a roundtable discussion according to sources. The former president made opening remarks and then mostly listened for the 45-minute meeting. John Gomez, deputy chief of staff to Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Gallardo, posted a picture on Twitter with Bill Clinton of that event.
Gomez said U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, former Congressman Ed Pastor, Supervisor Steve Gallardo and former County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox were at the meeting.
Clinton also attended a fundraiser for his wife’s presidential campaign in the Phoenix area that day hosted by prominent real estate developer and businessman Jim Pederson.
Pederson confirmed the fundraiser and Clinton visit. “It went very well,” said Pederson, the chairman of Phoenix-based Pederson Group. Pederson is one of Arizona’s top Democrats and a longtime friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch came to Phoenix to meet with police officers and top officials the following day as part of a nationwide tour to promote community policing at its best.
Lynch was there to praise the agency’s broad approach to de-escalation training as a model for law-enforcement around the country. The techniques are designed to calm down potentially violent situations and prevent the need for lethal force.
Lynch also wanted to acknowledge Phoenix’s Crisis Intervention Team, a new squad created to diffuse potentially volatile situations with mentally ill individuals which have been increasing over the last several years.
Sky Harbor Airport, Phoenix
The executive terminal at Sky Harbor can often be a busy place, especially on a day when you have the former president and his Secret Service detail leaving, the U.S. Attorney General and her FBI protection detail arriving as well as other high profile executive’s coming and going.
But these things are always well coordinated and people in power are ushered around by assistants that keep the timing down to the minute in order to accomplish their complicated schedules. A 75-yard clearance between the planes was required by security to ensure a smooth transition from motorcade to plane and visa-versa.
None of this was to be an issue this day because Bill Clinton’s schedule had his plane departing before Lynch’s plane was to touch down. As the traveling Secret Service and FBI agents always do, they shared their schedules with the agents of the host city, this got to Bill Clinton who apparently delayed his departure in order to “accidentally” run into each other at the airport.
CNN reported that: “According to a law enforcement official familiar with the matter, the former president saw Lynch’s plane on the tarmac and walked onto her aircraft. Lynch’s FBI security detail did not stop Clinton and he proceeded to initiate an extended conversation that included discussion of grandchildren. Lynch was surprised to see Clinton walking onto her plane, the official said, and no Justice Department business was discussed.”
This gives the impression of two people bumping into each other in the store, not a schedule delay for Mr. Clinton to surprise the AG and have a random talk about golf and grandkids.
Yet we know that Bill Clinton did not leave as scheduled and when he arrived on the tarmac, he left his motorcade and went directly to Lynch’s plane. The FBI agents did not stop him (they know better), and after a brief chat with the airman at the ramp, he went up the stairs and talked to Lynch and her husband for about 30 minutes.
The Clintons and Lynch and Hogan & Hartson
Obviously the Bill Clinton and Lynch do have a relationship because it was Bill Clinton who nominated Lynch for the first of her two terms as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York in 1999, a position she held until she joined the Hogan & Hartson law firm in March 2002.
Hogan & Hartson’s New York-based partner Howard Topaz was the tax lawyer who filed income tax returns for Bill and Hillary Clinton beginning in 2004. Hogan & Hartson were among Hillary Clinton’s biggest financial supporters in the legal industry during her first run at the White House.
In yet another strange twist, Hogan & Hartson in Virginia filed a patent trademark request in 2004, for Denver-based MX Logic Inc., the computer software firm that created the email encryption system used to manage the Clinton’s private email server beginning in July 2013.
A tech expert has observed that based on that software, employees of MX Logic could have had access to all the emails that went through her account and read, copied and/or sent them anywhere in the world without anyone knowing.
It is unknown if Lynch had any contact with the MX Logic account while at Hogan & Hartson or if she ever worked on the Clinton’s taxes or any other business dealing with the Clintons.
Lynch is such a close friend of the Clintons that she wasn’t even one of the 500 guests invited to Chelsea’s 3-million-dollar wedding to hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky? Even Ted Danson made that list!
What Really Happened in Phoenix?
Only 2 or 3 people really know what happened word for word and obviously they are not talking about it other than the it was just a social conversation stuff that CNN and other media outlets have been repeating.
Lynch has repeatedly said that they talked about grandchildren and a little golf. “It really was a social meeting, and it was, it really was in that regard,” she said, “He spoke to me, he spoke to my husband for some time on the plane, and then we moved on.”
Strange that he would talk about golf on a day that was 100 degrees and he did not golf since he arrived in the afternoon and left in the evening with two events in between.
Maybe it was more like… If you don’t want to be buried on a golf course in Phoenix and be able to see your grandchildren, you will make all this go away for my wife? Only they know for sure.
We do know that even though the FBI found Hillary Clinton guilty of gross negligence in her handling of classified information, FBI Director James Comey decided not to recommend charges be filed against her because he did not believe it was her intent to share such information.
It should be noted that the law says that intent is not required and that negligence alone is all that is required to convict someone of violating the law. Director Comey also added that no prosecutor would be likely to take the case had he recommended charges, this is way outside the bounds of the FBI to even suggest and is clearly wrong as several prosecutors have said they would have taken the case.
This of course took a lot of the heat off of AG Lynch as the decision had basically been taken out of her hands by someone who reports to her, how convenient!
That 30 minutes could go down as one of the most important 30 minutes in American history if Hillary Clinton is elected.
