Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Friday speculated that Hillary Clinton wanted her husband to meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Trump claimed in a tweet that former President Bill Clinton’s unplanned meeting with Lynch on the Phoenix airport tarmac Monday night was “probably initiated and demanded by Hillary.”
As Bernie Sanders said, Hillary Clinton has bad judgement. Bill’s meeting was probably initiated and demanded by Hillary!

Trump said in another tweet that Bill Clinton “was caught by a local reporter,” echoing his remarks Thursday that the meeting was a “sneak” and exemplified a “totally rigged” system.
“Does anybody really believe that meeting was just a coincidence?” Trump asked in a third tweet.
Lynch is slated to announce Friday that she will accept the recommendation from career prosecutors investigating Hillary Clinton’s email case, according to reports.
Republicans have called on the attorney general to recuse herself amid a political firestorm after her meeting with Bill Clinton, essentially sidelining the Democratic presidential appointee.
Clinton reportedly delayed his departure from the Phoenix airport Monday night when he heard Lynch would be at the airport. He then boarded her plane.
Lynch described the meeting to reporters as “primarily social,” centering around talk about his grandchildren. She said the pair did not discuss the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email address and server while secretary of State.
