Bill Clinton, Lynch met privately in Arizona

Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton on Monday night at the Phoenix international airport, ABC 15 reported.

{mosads}The meeting came hours before the House Benghazi Committee on Tuesday released a report on the 2012 terror attacks in Libya. Lynch told reporters the two did not discuss the issue.

“Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels, and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix,” Lynch said.

“There was no discussion on any matter pending before the Department or any matter pending with any other body, there was no discussion of Benghazi, no discussion of State Department emails, by way of example I would say it was current news of the day, the Brexit decision and what it would mean.”

Sources told ABC 15 that the meeting lasted about 30 minutes.

The Department of Justice is conducting an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of State, which was revealed as part of the House investigation into the Benghazi attacks.
