The government watchdog organization Judicial Watch has worked to get more information from the federal government about Bill Clinton’s shady meeting with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on an airport tarmac in Arizona. The Justice Department has released talking points developed by the Obama administration, except much of the material is redacted:

Via Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch today announced that the Justice Department refuses to disclose the talking points developed by the Obama Justice Department to help it respond to press inquiries about the controversial June 27, 2016, tarmac meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
The Justice Department heavily redacted the documents under Exemption b (5), which allows agencies to withhold draft or deliberative process material. The blacked-out material centers around talking points drafted and used by Justice to respond to press inquiries about the Lynch-Clinton meeting.
If everybody is to believe the Team Clinton and Loretta Lynch explanation, what would there be to redact?
How can talking about grandchildren count as "deliberative process?" And Bill Clinton wasn't a government employee. https://t.co/sLDLTYEyYX
