Meeting occurred days before Clinton was interviewed about her private email serverJudicial Watch, a government watchdog group, has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice after the agency failed to respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request related to the infamous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton just days before Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI about her private email server.
The lawsuit was filed in the United States Court for the District of Columbia and seeks to retrieve records the group attempted to gather through a June 2016 FOIA request. According to U.S. Postal Service records, the agency received the request in early July. In December, request numbers were assigned to the FOIA. However, the agency did not determine if they would accept or deny the request within the allotted amount of time applicable under FOIA.
