ACLJ FOIA Unmasks Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Secret Email Alias – “Elizabeth Carlisle”
The ACLJ has unmasked former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s secret email alias.
The ACLJ’s FOIA lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) into the clandestine meeting between former AG Lynch and former President Bill Clinton has uncovered the secret email account used by former Attorney General Lynch to conduct official DOJ business.
Late last week we obtained and published more than 400 pages of documents from the DOJ, including redacted talking points on the Clinton-Lynch meeting that the DOJ bureaucracy still refuses to allow the public to see – redacting numerous pages of draft and final talking points and statements developed for the Attorney General.
Now we’ve learned that less than an hour and a half after the first press inquiry into the secret meeting, AG Lynch herself was actually added into the discussion about the draft talking points under the alias “Elizabeth Carlisle, firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The Daily Caller, investigating the emails we received, confirmed over the weekend:
Lynch, using the Elizabeth Carlisle account, which was hosted on the Justice Department’s system, was also involved in those discussions.
Lynch’s attorney, Robert Raben, confirmed to TheDC on Monday that Lynch emailed under that pseudonym. He pointed to an article published in The Hill last February in which the Justice Department acknowledged that Lynch was using an email handle that was not her given name.
Now we know what her hidden email account was: “Elizabeth Carlisle.” We also know she was using this secret email account to conduct official DOJ business. Finally, we know she was directly involved in developing the still hidden talking points and statement, which was apparently never released, on her surreptitious meeting with former President Clinton while her DOJ was still overseeing the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton and her own secret email account.
The Obama-Lynch DOJ is still hiding the truth from the public. But we’re cutting through the deceit and deception. We will get to the bottom of the unethical corrupt actions of former Attorney General Lynch. We will hold those responsible for the lawless Obama DOJ accountable.
We will be back in federal court to force the release of the wrongfully redacted talking points in the coming weeks. We will keep you up to date as this crucial case progresses.
