Republicans are finally getting around to questioning former attorney general Loretta Lynch about her strange tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton before the 2016 election. They should have started this earlier but better late than never, right?

GOP grills Loretta Lynch over tarmac meeting, Comey’s conduct
Republicans grilled former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for hours Wednesday over her 2016 airport tarmac meeting with President Clinton at a time when her department was investigating his wife for mishandling top-secret emails.
GOP lawmakers emerged to say they had learned new information about the dissonance between Ms. Lynch and then-FBI Director James Comey, who cut Ms. Lynch out of some decisions and very publicly exonerated Hillary Clinton soon after the tarmac meeting.
“We are finding some very interesting things about his feeling he didn’t have to inform her before, during, or after he made the decision not to prosecute,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, California Democrat.
Republicans have hinted the impromptu meeting during a layover in the summer of 2016 cast a cloud over the investigation and presented the then-attorney general with a conflict of interest.
But Democrats said the meeting lasted only eight or nine minutes and other people were present, suggesting there was nothing nefarious.
Once Democrats take control of the House in January, this will become history. Dems will never allow anything to happen to Lynch.
