Following Attorney General Loretta Lynch‘s “chance” meeting with Bill Clinton at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International airport in late June, FBI agents involved with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server are said to have been required to sign a special security form which prohibits agents from discussing the matter publicly.
The new form is designated a “Case Briefing Acknowledgment.”
Lynch and Clinton’s “chance” meeting took place days before FBI Director James Comey announced the Bureau would not recommend indicting the former Secretary and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee for mishandling classified information.
“I have never heard of such a form. Sounds strange,” says one FBI agent.
Agents consider the procedure nothing more than a gag order.
“This is very, very unusual. I’ve never signed one, never circulated one to others,” one retired FBI chief admitted.
The emergence of the new form and its use immediately after both the “chance” meeting between Lynch and President Clinton and Secretary Clinton escaping indictment for her use of multiple private servers and mishandling of classified information has led many FBI agents to believe the “chance” tarmac meeting between the Attorney General and Bill Clinton produced an inside deal to protect Mrs. Clinton and to silence agents familiar with the investigation.
“FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting,” said one DOJ source.
Although all FBI agents are obligated to sign nondisclosure agreement forms prior to employment to meet security requirements, this is the first time a Case Briefing Acknowledgement has been used.
