Judicial Watch isn’t playing anymore. They are directly taking on the Deep State at the State Department, head on, in court. The Deep State Department has been withholding evidence against Hillary for the past five years and it’s time to root them out and send them packing.
You would have to be a damn fool or a Democrat (Sorry, that’s redundant) to believe that the Clinton Foundation received $245 million dollars from entities who got favors from Hillary is a mere coincidence.
Judicial Watch wants those documents so that they can expose Hillary’s crimes. It seems like Judicial Watch is able to get documents easier than Congress can.
Judicial Watch reported:
Judicial Watch announced today that it sued the U.S. Department of State for emails, calendar entries and other information in the electronic file of Dennis Cheng, who was Deputy Chief of Protocol for two years under former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (Judicial Watch v U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-00221)).
Cheng was deputy chief of protocol of the United States from July 2009-July 2011. Following his tenure at the State Department, Cheng joined the Clinton Family Foundation as director of development, and then in April 2015 became finance director of the Hillary for America presidential campaign.
Prior to joining the Clinton State Department, Cheng was finance director in New York for Mrs. Clinton’s successful campaign for Senate.
Judicial Watch filed the complaint after the State Department failed to respond to a December 21, 2017, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for:
[T]he PST file of Dennis Cheng. Mr. Cheng served as Deputy Chief of Protocol of the United States from July 20, 2009 to July 2011. A PST file is a Personal Storage Table, an open proprietary file format used to store copies of messages, calendar events, and other items within Microsoft software such as Microsoft Exchange Client, Windows Messaging, and Microsoft Outlook.
While at the Clinton Foundation, Cheng raised $246 million in just over three-and-a-half years, July 2011-February 2015. A separate FOIA lawsuit by Citizens United found that Cheng communicated with Huma Abedin about a major Clinton Foundation dinner and other issues.
Previous Judicial Watch FOIA litigation uncovered the Clinton email scandal and ethics scandal, Bill Clinton’s conflicts of interest issues, and the pay-to-play scandal involving the Clinton State Department and donors to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton campaigns.
Judicial Watch points out that Bill Clinton gave speeches in foreign countries including Russia totaling $48 million while Hillary was Secretary of State. That makes nearly $300 million total not counting whatever cash payments under the table they might have received.
One speech Bill Clinton made was to Kremlin linked Renaissance Capital for which he was paid a cool half a million dollars for a 20-minute speech.
Tom Fitton, head of Judicial Watch says he plans to take the lead in draining the swamp.
