The FBI has revealed 30 pages of documents connected to the infamous June 2016 airport tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The Bureau released the information only after tremendous pressure, and after lying about it for several months.
The move comes in response to a Freedom of Information Act suit, filed by investigators from Judicial Watch.
FBI officials lied to Judicial Watch last October, saying that the bureau did not have any records related to the June 27, 2016 meeting between Clinton and Lynch.
That meeting is widely thought to have been part of an attempted cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Lynch later told agents to refer to it as “a matter” and not a criminal investigation.

In August, the Justice Department released emails showing some of its officials exchanging emails with the FBI regarding the meeting. And in a July 1, 2016, email, Justice Department official Caroline Pokomy told colleagues that “FBI is asking for guidance” on the controversy.
After the release of those documents, the FBI acknowledged that it had possession of some records related to the meeting. The bureau’s attorneys informed Judicial Watch that, “Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist.”
It is unclear what documents about the tarmac meeting the FBI has in its possession, but Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton calls the FBI’s new disclosure “stunning.”
“The FBI is out of control,” Fitton said in a statement.
“It is stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit.”
“Judicial Watch will continue to press for answers about the FBI’s document games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately,” he added.
The FBI has until Nov. 30 to hand the newly discovered documents over to Judicial Watch.
