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.

This project aimed at shedding light on burgeoning corruption in the bureaucracy that controls our government agencies and implements our laws. We are fighting to hold this...
The Department of Justice’s Inspector General (IG), the DOJ’s internal watchdog, just released a scathing 568-page report condemning the actions of senior FBI officials during the height of the 2016 election, including their handling of the Clinton Email Investigation. The report rebukes the...
It has long been apparent that the Obama Administration was so intent on brokering a nuclear deal with Iran that it was willing to accept almost any terms to close the deal. Now it has become clear that even the terms that were ultimately agreed to were not honored by the Obama Administration. This...
It’s a shocking investigatory misstep. We’ve just obtained new FOIA documents showing that the Comey-led FBI lost the chain of custody for one of Hillary Clinton’s email servers during its supposed investigation. In September of last year, the ACLJ issued a FOIA request to the FBI seeking, among...
