Breaking: Fed court excoriates State and DOJ on Clinton email, orders discovery plan in 10 days as to whether Hillary Clinton email system an intentional attempt to evade FOIA. "One of the gravest modern offenses to gov't transparency..."
BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (#FOIA) lawsuit against the #JusticeDepartment for all records of communications involving any investigation by the #FBI into the #ClintonFoundation.
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the agency failed to respond to our May 4th, 2018 #FOIA request for: All records of communication – including but not limited to e-mails, text messages, or instant chats – sent between officials in the offices of the FBI Director, Deputy Director, and General Counsel on the one hand and officials in the offices of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, and or Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General on the other hand regarding the closure or possible closure of an investigation into the #ClintonFoundation.
In January 2016, the FBI reportedly began investigating the Clinton Foundation, as it expanded from the email probe. In October 2016, FBI agents were told they did not have “enough evidence to move forward” with their investigation of the Foundation. Earlier this year, a DOJ Inspector General report detailed evidence that the Obama DOJ sought to shut down the FBI investigation of Clinton Foundation.
It was a Judicial Watch #FOIA lawsuit led directly to the disclosure of the illicit #Clinton email system in 2015. And this is part of Judicial Watch’s ongoing investigation into the #ClintonFoundation’s pay-to-play politics that involves multiple #FOIA lawsuits seeking government documents from #HillaryClinton’s illicit email system, as well as records related to the intersection of the #StateDepartment and the #ClintonFoundation.
Judicial Watch President @TomFitton: “The record shows the #Obama#JusticeDepartment suppressed a public corruption investigation into the #ClintonFoundation. It’s time for the #DOJ to stop shielding the #Clintons and produce records on this miscarriage of justice.” Learn more by following the link in our bio!
