The world only knows that recently Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton had a private conversation in a parked private plane at the Phoenix airport because a local ABC affiliate found out about it. Lynch assured one and all that the conversation was “primarily” about grandchildren. Few if any people believe that and the White House has been handed another headache. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Clinton, who is running for president, is also under investigation for her use of a private email server to store top secret messages.

Lynch meeting with Clinton was, at best, highly inappropriate, at worst a criminal offense.

The furor has resulted in a twist in the case that could be fatal for Clinton’s political prospects. The New York Time reports that Lynch will not accept any recommendation about Hillary Clinton that comes from career prosecutors at Justice and FBI Director James Comey. In effect, that means that Lynch has promised not to block a recommend for an indictment should it hit her desk.

Two theories exist about what was really talked about.

Either Clinton was lobbying Lynch not to have his wife indicted, or Lynch was giving Clinton a heads up that his wife was about to be indicted.

In the meantime, Donald Trump is taking full advantage of the dustup, claiming that the meeting is proof that the game is “rigged” for elites such as the Clintons. The theme is likely to be potent as it fits neatly with Trump’s overall strategy of whipping up working-class and middle-class voters who have been hammered by the current economic malaise.

The decision by Lynch, under pressure thanks to her ill-considered meeting with Bill Clinton, to accept whatever recommendation comes her way concerning an indictment of Hillary Clinton is a potential game changer for Election 2016. Comey and the career prosecutors who are working on the email server case are considered fiercely non-political. Clinton would not get any consideration just because she is a Democrat and is running for the first woman president of the United States.

The development means that Clinton is more likely to go to federal prison than to the White House.
