You’re reading this, so I assume you don’t like Hillary Clinton either. Speaking as a cuck RINO traitor who didn’t vote for Trump because I probably wanted Hillary back in the White House, I’m glad Hillary isn’t back in the White House. The 2016 election had only the second-worst possible result.

And during the campaign, there were times when I could swear Bill Clinton felt the same way. He really didn’t seem happy about the whole thing, and he kept undermining his ostensible partner and ally in weird ways. He called Obamacare a “crazy system.” He mixed it up with a Black Lives Matter protester. At one point he even said: “Sometimes when I am on a stage like this, I wish that we weren’t married, then I could say what I really think.” But he meant it in a good way, wink wink.

All that stuff came back to me as I read the latest news about that infamous June 2016 tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, right in the middle of the whole mess with Hillary’s emails. Granted, there are so many things wrong with Hillary, you can’t really point to any one fiasco as the cause of her stunning defeat. But that meeting certainly didn’t help. So, what really happened?

Eric Felten, Real Clear Investigations:

What happened when Bill Clinton met then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the west side of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport between 7 and 8 PM on June 27, 2016? Just days before Hillary Rodham Clinton was to be interviewed by the FBI about her mishandling of classified emails, the former president intercepted the AG on her plane…

We have a new window on what may have gone on inside Lynch’s FBI jet after it landed — the story as told by the former attorney general to lawmakers and staff of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Her account could easily be seen as self-serving, but it was given under penalty of perjury.

Lynch was questioned behind closed doors on Dec. 19, 2018 in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2131. The interview has remained private; no transcript of it has been released. But RealClearInvestigations has obtained a copy. In it, Lynch describes an encounter with Bill Clinton that is both perplexing and preposterous, a story that defies innocent explanation.

You should read the whole thing, but in summary: According to Lynch, the conversation was indeed innocuous. They really did just talk about their grandchildren and his golfing and other harmless topics, she claims.

But according to her, Bill basically barged onto her plane before she even knew what was happening. And according to her, he just kept talking and talking and talking, about nothing in particular, even after she gave him several clear indications that she needed to get going. He stayed so long, she started to worry about how it would appear to the public if word got out.

So here’s my crazy idea. Just bear with me for a minute:

What if Loretta Lynch is telling the truth?

I know, I know. It’s insane. But listen: What if Bill only wanted to give the impression that he was inappropriately intervening? What if he knew exactly how it would look, and wanted it to look that way? What if he knew everybody would assume he was lying, because he usually is? What if he knew a lot of people will never, ever trust the guy who said this?

What if Bill used that? What if he hates Hillary as much as we do, and he figured out a way to destroy her one big dream without even needing to lie? As a famous exorcist once said, the Devil will mix truth with lies to attack us.

And let’s face it, Bill Clinton disregarding clear signals from an uncooperative woman seems very, very plausible.

Like I said, it’s crazy. But wouldn’t it be great if Bill got tired of that shrieking harridan riding his coat-tails, and showed her how a real Machiavellian operates? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if her stepping stone to power was just a little too, ahem, slick for her? Wouldn’t it be absolutely perfect if her biggest enemy wasn’t Putin, but the guy who kept puttin’ his cigar in places he shouldn’t?

Good work, Bill. Your secret is safe with us. Enjoy your well-earned retirement!
