Another theory on the Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton meeting fiasco: Bill doesn’t want to be in charge of replacing the East Room draperies, so he’s sabotaging his wife’s campaign. The psychology may go a lot deeper than that (husband can’t handle wife in the spotlight), but the idea that Bill’s deliberately undermining Hillary’s campaign can’t be dismissed out of hand. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:
The mighty Shakespeare in his direst night sweats could not have conjured up the Clinton family in all their sharp angles and dark corners, but we can try to reconstruct the scene last week on Loretta Lynch’s plane out on the Phoenix airport tarmac. Former president Bill steps aboard:
Loretta: What the fuck are you doing here?
Bill: I just had to tell you what Charlotte did last week.
Loretta: Who the fuck is Charlotte?
Bill: Our grand-kid. She’s turning into a good little earner.
Loretta: We can’t meet like this. We’re about to depose your wife.
Bill: Charlotte gave a speech to the whole Citibank C-suite.
Loretta: I don’t give a fuck. Get off my plane right now!
Bill: Well, I don’t know if ‘speech’ is the right word. She gurgles nice.
Loretta: I guess you didn’t hear me.
Bill: She pulled in fifty grand for that. Of course it was a hundred percent remitted to the foundation. Well, bye now. (Exits plane).
I have a theory about the Clinton family dynamic. Bill does not want Hillary to win because he doesn’t want to live in the White House again. For sure he does not want to live with The Flying Reptile, but he especially doesn’t want to be on display in that fishbowl where folks pretty much can see what you’re up to 24/7. For one thing, “The Energizer” can’t discreetly come and go. But he certainly doesn’t want to concern himself as “First Husband” or “First Gentleman” (title TBD) with deciding which fabric to choose in replacing the East Room draperies. So Bill decided to fix things for sure with that innocent visit to the US Attorney General’s airplane to talk about grand-kids.
It seems to be working. If there was any question that Loretta Lynch could just sit on her hands about Hillary’s email investigation through the November election, it went up in a vapor last week. It also left FBI director on the hot seat because now he will have to either cough up a referral to Justice Department prosecutors, or he’ll have some ‘splainin to do in the heat of a presidential election campaign. If you thought Watergate was a ripe peach, this one is beginning to look like a stinking durian (Durio zibethinus).

I hadn’t considered that. I figured they were just above the law and complacent. That’s really hilarious. Go Bill! (you sack of shite.)
