Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today commented on the recent meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, in an interview with WIOD Miami’s Jimmy Cefalo.

“Loretta Lynch is the attorney general and her Justice Department is investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of her private e-mail while at the State Department,” said Rubio. “She now, yesterday, met with Hillary Clinton’s husband, and basically he could even himself be a person of interest in all of this as the investigation is broadened beyond just the emails. It in fact includes the Clinton Foundation and links between donations to the foundation and initiatives that supported the State Department during Hillary Clinton’s watch.

“And so the notion that the prosecutor, the person who runs the Justice Department, would spend 30 minutes in a private conversation with the spouse of someone her Department is investigating raises all sorts of red flags and even Democrats have admitted it,” Rubio added. “Obviously, they’re not going to say terrible things about her, but even they’ve admitted that it looks bad.

“But I’ll just say it’s a real lack of judgement on both parts. A sitting attorney general, former U.S. President, who by the way is an attorney himself, they knew, or should have known that it looked terrible and it shouldn’t have happened. I think it testifies to something broader, which is total arrogance that they can do whatever they want, that the rules don’t apply to them. This has been par for the course for the Clinton’s for thirty years and whether it’s the email usage or Bill Clinton’s time in the White House, or that meeting in the airport the other day,” Rubio concluded.
