Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president is accusing the DOJ (Department of Justice) of covering up on the private server/email scandal. A federal judge, Lamberth ordered Hillary Clinton to answer additional questions about her illegal server.
He also ordered the FBI and DOJ to determine if Hillary developed the private server to hide communications. It should come as no surprise that the FBI and DOJ are instead covering up for Hillary.
Judge Lamberth said Hillary Clinton’s private server was “One of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
Especially, Lamberth ruled:
… the Court ORDERS the parties to meet and confer to plan discovery into (a) whether Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email while Secretary of State was an intentional attempt to evade FOIA; (b) whether the State Department’s attempts to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and (c) whether State has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s requests.
Terming Clinton’s use of her private email system, “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency,” Lamberth wrote in his MEMORANDUM OPINION.
Although Judicial Watch refuses to back down, the Justice Department is actively working to stop the watchdog’s efforts to gather evidence in federal court.
Tom Fitton was furious that the DOJ is working to block their discovery efforts.
“Outrageously, this Justice Department is colluding with Clinton email scandal to stop our efforts to gather evidence in federal court. President Trump should ask this Justice Department why it’s still protecting Hillary Clinton,” Tom Fitton said Wednesday.
Via Judicial Watch:
In 2016, Hillary Clinton was required to submit, under oath, written answers to Judicial Watch’s questions. Clinton objected to and refused to answer questions about the creation of her email system; her decision to use the system despite warnings from State Department cybersecurity officials; and the basis for her claim that the State Department had “90-95%” of her emails. Judge Sullivan is considering Judicial Watch’s motion to compel answers to these questions.
In her responses sent to Judicial Watch and the court on October 13, 2016, Clinton refused to answer three questions and responded that she “does not recall” 20 times concerning her non-government clintonemail.com email system. She preceded her responses by eight “general objections” and two “objections to definitions.” The words “object” or “objection” appear 84 times throughout the 23-page document submitted to the court and Judicial Watch.
