BOOM! Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records Relating to the Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting 

Government watchdog Judicial Watch powered by the voice of Tom Fitton have not forgotten about the meeting on the tarmac before the presidential election between former President Bill Clinton and then Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Fitton and the team at JW have announced today that they will be suing the Department of Justice for all the records on the meeting that angered conservatives around the nation.
