Federal Judge Just Dropped The Hammer On Hillary – Case Blown Wide Open

Hillary Clinton is still free to do whatever pleases her, and she even tried to become a president. But, her time has come to an end, and President Donald Trump will not let her get away with everything she has done.

The Clintons will have to answer a few questions about their past activities.

Judicial Watch  revealed that a federal judge has dropped a discovery into Hillary’s shady activities regarding her email:

Court Excoriates Obama State Department/Justice Department for Possibly Acting in “Bad Faith” and Colluding “to Scuttle Public Scrutiny” of Clinton Private Email Server

Court Criticizes Current Justice Department for “Chicanery”

District Court Judge Lamberth Orders “Proposed Plan and Schedule for Discovery Within Ten Days”

Discovery Must Also Explore Whether Clinton Intentionally Used Private Email Server to “skirt FOIA”

U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth issued a new order according to which both agencies will have to join Judicial Watch in providing a schedule for determining whether Hillary tried to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) through her private email system. We will also get the opportunity to learn whether the State Department worked in “bad faith.”

This new investigation stems from the FOIA lawsuit that links Hillary and the Benghazi manslaughter.

… 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,” the ruling reads.

The judge spoke about the lack of accountability and the severity of the scandal.

“… his [President Barack Obama’s] State and Justice Departments fell far short. So far short that the court questions, even now, whether they are acting in good faith. Did Hillary Clinton use her private email as Secretary of State to thwart this lofty goal [Obama announced a standard for transparency]? Was the State Department’s attempt to settle this FOIA case in 2014 an effort to avoid searching – and disclosing the existence of – Clinton’s missing emails? And has State ever adequately searched for records in this case?

At best, State’s attempt to pass-off its deficient search as legally adequate during settlement negotiations was negligence born out of incompetence, Lamberth added. At worst, career employees in the State and Justice Departments colluded to scuttle public scrutiny of Clinton, skirt FOIA, and hoodwink this Court.”

The judge then focused on the Department of Justice:

“The current Justice Department made things worse. When the government last appeared before the Court, counsel claimed, ‘it is not true to say we misled either Judicial Watch or the Court.’ When accused of ‘doublespeak,’ counsel denied vehemently, feigned offense, and averred complete candor. When asked why State masked the inadequacy of its initial search, counsel claimed that the officials who initially responded to Judicial Watch’s request didn’t realize Clinton’s emails were missing and that it took them two months to ‘figure [] out what was going on’… Counsel’s responses strain credulity.”

Judge Lamberth asked:

“Did State know Clinton deemed the Benghazi attack terrorism hours after it happened, contradicting the Obama Administration’s subsequent claim of a protest-gone-awry?

Did the Department merely fear what might be found? Or was State’s bungling just the unfortunate result of bureaucratic redtape and a failure to communicate? To preserve the Department’s integrity, and to reassure the American people their government remains committed to transparency and the rule of law, this suspicion cannot be allowed to fester.”

“The historic court ruling raises concerns about the Hillary Clinton email scandal and government corruption that millions of Americans share. Judicial Watch looks forward to conducting careful discovery into the Clinton email issue and we hope the Justice Department and State Department recognize Judge Lamberth’s criticism and help, rather than obstruct, this court-ordered discovery,” said Judicial Watch Tom Fitton.
