WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement on the dubious meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton:

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Lynch described her highly unorthodox meeting with Bill Clinton as ‘primarily social.’ As someone with a long history investigating Bill Clinton, I know that almost everything he does is “primarily social,” but with Clinton, you always have to wonder, ‘what were his ulterior motives?’

“Bill Clinton should not be soliciting a conversation with the Attorney General while her Department is investigating his wife. And the Attorney General should not be engaging him in conversation. What did they talk about? We’ll likely never know for sure, but this is precisely why prosecutors must avoid even an appearance of impropriety. This is a case of, at best, extremely poor judgment and it absolutely taints the Department’s investigation of Hillary Clinton.”
