One of the attorneys that is working for Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, a group trying to cover up Loretta Lynch’s conspiracy and criminal actions in concert with James Comey and others, was also involved in attempting to conceal her crimes at DOJ.
She was working directly for Lynch at the time everything came to a head around the Clinton sham investigation and the tarmac rendezvous with Bill Clinton. Her firsthand knowledge of everything that needs to be obstructed and hidden from the American people must be very useful in their efforts.
Paige Herwig was then Counselor to the Attorney General and is now the Deputy General Counsel for Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats. That committee is currently investigating, or, more accurately, from the Democrat perspective, engaged in covering up, the effort to quash the prosecution of Hillary Clinton by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then-FBI Director James Comey.
When news broke of the runway rendezvous between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch, Herwig was one of those involved in the crafting and editing of the talking points used to hide what they had been up to from the public. Now she’s progressed to helping to steer those “considering” whether Lynch should be investigated.
Even more indicative of how deeply entrenched in the deep state syndicate Herwig is, prior to going to work for Lynch at the Justice Department she was a special assistant and associate counsel to Hussein Obama.
Director of public affairs at DOJ, emailed her FBI counterpart to ‘flag’ the media stories
The Free Beacon reports that emails, where they are readable in the few non-redacted portions, “show that on June 29, 2016, two days after the Clinton-Lynch meeting, when the national news media was first learning of the tarmac one-on-one, Melanie Newman, the then-director of public affairs at the Justice Department, emailed her FBI counterpart to ‘flag’ the media stories about the tarmac meeting that she noted were ‘gaining traction tonight.’
Conspiracy in the cover up between the FBI and DOJ is likely proven in the emails, which were released in largely unusable, redacted form. They are currently being sought through legal action in their complete form and have created consternation among Trump supporters who don’t understand why the Sessions DOJ is covering up for the crimes of his predecessor.
Even in the redacted form, conspiracy and obstruction is evident as Newman included a transcript of a question Lynch answered about the meeting the following day, as well as Justice Department talking points on the topic. She stated, “Our talkers on this are below, along with the transcript of the Phoenix presser, where she was asked about this. Happy to discuss further by phone. Please let me know if you get any questions about this. Thanks.”
She clearly knew that email would be too incriminating and hard to control beyond whatever she had already stated. Nineteen minutes earlier, Newman had also mailed the same Lynch transcript to an assistant press secretary at the White House.
The Free Beacon also reports that, “Additionally, Lynch’s deputy chief of staff contacted Comey’s chief of staff and counselor, Jim Rybicki, July 1, but the email string noting that contact is heavily redacted. The email string originates with a query about the tarmac meeting from Fox News’s Mike Levine asking for Newman and Lewis in the Justice Department’s press office to address his questions ‘ASAP’ because a Fox News affiliate in Phoenix ‘is hearing that the AG met with Bill Clinton on a plane last night for close to an hour.'”
They also reveal that “Within one minute of receipt of the Levine email with the subject line ‘Bill Clinton meeting?’ Newman looped in Pokorny and Lewis, with a terse directive, ‘We need to talk. I’m on cell [redacted].’ A minute later, Axelrod was added to the chain, saying he was free and would set up a conference call line.”
Clearly joint damage control operations were underway in a form that was, to the degree possible, attempting to minimize the paper trail. That cover continues to this date, even at the Senate Judiciary Committee, the supposed guardians of America’s judicial integrity.
