Loretta says to Bill: "So - how's the wife and kids?"
Bill Says to Loretta: "I'm going to make you an offer you can't refuse"
It seems as though most media outlets and the cadre of news anchors, commentators, and other talking heads of that ilk are all expressing confusion and are unable to imagine why Bill Clinton, an acknowledged master at politics, could be so foolish as to goof up this badly.
Actually, it is simple. Bill Clinton knows the degree of guilt surrounding Hillary, and also knows that the investigation has uncovered far far more damaging evidence than has been made public. His meeting with Atty. Gen. Lynch is an act of desperation.
There is nothing to lose (except, of course, Bill Clinton's third term as President).
He probably is making very clear to Lynch what is expected, and probably has mentioned what good things may happen if Hillary is cleared. Or perhaps he has mentioned what has befallen many of the Clinton enemies in the past.
