If Robert Mueller were serious about finding collusion to affect the 2016 election, he might try looking at the collusion between the Obama Justice Department and some major media outlets to ignore the clearly inappropriate private tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who was overseeing the “investigation” of his wife Hillary’s email server scandal.

Through a FOIA lawsuit, the American Center for Law and Justice obtained multiple documents from the DOJ and FBI (despite former FBI Director James Comey’s claims that they didn’t exist) showing that the DOJ went into crisis/spin mode over news of the meeting. Lynch’s spin team immediately began crafting talking points to deflect suspicion, and luckily, media outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post and ABC were remarkably incurious about the story and seemingly willing to collude with the DOJ to make it go away, even to the point of taking suggestions from the DOJ on how to change their stories to put Lynch in the best light.

It’s not a surprise to hear that these outlets were colluding with the Obama Administration to help sweep Hillary’s dirt under the rug, since that’s one of the reasons why so many Americans no long trust their reporting. They now claim to be intrepid diggers of the truth who are holding the powerful to account, but that’s only happened since Trump was elected. You can change your business card to read “crusading journalist,” but when you just came off eight years as the DNC’s stenographers, don’t expect many people to buy it.
