The former attorney general used the alias "Elizabeth Carlisle" to conduct government business at the Justice Department, which included emails related to a meeting with former President Bill Clinton on the tarmac of a Phoenix airport in June 2016 during the presidential campaign. Lynch's impartiality. Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton in the midst of last year's chaotic presidential election.

Brooke Singman is a Reporter for Fox News.

That private meeting sparked a wave of FOIA requests by Judicial Watch, the American Center for Law, and others - which produced 413 pages of documents, including email correspondence - released earlier this week.

President Donald Trump again raged at media outlets during the second day of his summer vacation, criticising The New York Times, The Washington Post, and pollsters that showed his approval rating at new lows.

Former DOJ public affairs director Melanie Newman sent her counterpart at the Federal Bureau of Investigation an e-Mail 2 days after the meeting, just as the media began to report on the story.

New York Times reporter Mark Landler sent an email to then-director of the Justice Department Public Affairs Office Melanie Newman reading: "I've been pressed into service to write about the questions being raised by the Attorney General's meeting with Bill Clinton".

ACLJ has turned over all uncovered documentation to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is formally investigating the meeting between Lynch and Clinton.

"My editors are still pretty interested in it and I'm hoping to put it to rest by answering just a few more questions about how the meeting came about-who approached who, how did they realize they were in the same place", Zapotosky wrote.

Newman also indicated in an email that she had spoken to an ABC producer, who decided not to run with the story.

"They knew they were caught in this in what was clearly not an appropriate meeting". "And as I said, my greatest concern has always been making sure that people understand that the Department of Justice works in a way that is independent and looks at everybody equally", Lynch told CNN.
