Video Appears to Show the Day Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch Met on Tarmac

Encounter between attorney general and former president sparked controversy.

The pair merely exchanged social pleasantries and didn’t discuss the email probe, according to both Lynch and Bill Clinton. The conversation, which lasted around 20 minutes, was “primarily social,” Lynch said.

The video was obtained from the Phoenix Aviation Department through a public records request seeking "all video of the meeting between President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport on June 27, including any surveillance footage of the plane(s) on the tarmac."

It shows a white-haired figure who appears to be the former president emerging from a black SUV and then walking toward a plane, eventually disappearing behind the aircraft.

Airport authorities said they could not confirm the identities of the people nor the plane in the video, and the Secret Service referred ABC News to Bill Clinton’s staff, who has not responded to a request for comment.

ABC News' Mike Levine, Geneva Sands and Matthew Claiborne contributed to this report.
