As the final days of the Republican-controlled House came to an end, former Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch came to the Capitol under a subpoena and promptly got grilled by lawmakers about her infamous tarmac meeting with President Bill Clinton.

Lynch was in the Capitol complex under a subpoena, just days after former FBI Director James Comey gave a second interview to two GOP-run committees.

Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland told DailyMail.com that lawmakers did quiz Lynch about the tarmac meeting, but didn’t provide any details.

The behind-closed doors meeting was expected to last hours Wednesday. After arriving on Capitol Hill, she didn’t address reporters and immediately met with members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees.

During the meeting on a Pheonix airport tarmac, Lynch, who had arrived on her own plane, met with President Bill Clinton during the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Under fire afterward, she said the two did not discuss the status of the FBI’s email investigation of Hillary Clinton, which Comey announced in July 2016 did not meet the bar for prosecution.

Pressure on Lynch during the campaign ultimately persuaded Comey to on his own announce the decision not to prosecutor Clinton, rather than having the attorney general put out a statement.

He was later slammed by members of both parties for his public handling of the matter.
