(Fox News) – Attorney General Loretta Lynch, stung by criticism over her secret meeting with Bill Clinton, said Friday she will accept the recommendations of the FBI on whether to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
“I don’t have a role in these findings,” Lynch said at a summit in Colorado. “They are acting independently.”
Lynch acknowledged an impromptu meeting with former President Bill Clinton earlier this week “cast a shadow” on public perception of the email investigation into his wife.
“I certainly wouldn’t do it again,” Lynch said. “It has cast a shadow over this.”
Lynch’s comments highlight the intense scrutiny surrounding the probe into the past use of an exclusive email server by Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
The move to defer action to the findings of career prosecutors and investigators comes amid an uproar over Lynch’s meeting this week with the former president.
