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

Published

on

Hillary Clinton has enjoyed years of protection from her more numerous to count crimes, becoming exceptionally arrogant along the way. She fought so desperately to become president so that she could carry on this corruption and continue to get away with it, but since she lost that majorly expensive battle, she’s paying a major price for it now.

Hillary knew that Donald Trump wasn’t just going to ignore her years of crimes and let her deepest political scandals go without investigation. Proving he’s true to his word, karma is coming about now and the Clintons are about to be held accountable.

It’s long overdue and there’s no way they’re going to be able to snake their way out of this one.

According to Judicial Watch, a  federal judge has just opened a discovery into Hillary’s infamous email usage:

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”

Judicial Watch announced today that, in a ruling excoriating both the U.S. Departments of State and Justice, U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth has ordered both agencies to join Judicial Watch in submitting a proposed schedule for discovery into whether Hillary Clinton sought to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a private email system and whether the State Department acted in “bad faith” by failing to disclose knowledge of the email system.

This new investigation comes as the result of an FOIA lawsuit related to the Benghazi terrorist attack, when she went back to bed, leaving some of our nation’s greatest heroes fighting for our country to die.

Judge Lamberth laid it out in his ruling on the matter that was not at all what Clinton was expecting:

… 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.

Lamberth even went as far as to refer to Hillary’s use of her private email system as “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” It’s refreshing to see a justice actually take this case seriously and give it the investigation it deserves, rather than ignoring it.

In his MEMORANDUM OPINION, Lamberth explained his outrage about the total lack of accountability:

… 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.

Once Lamberth had finished excoriating Hillary, he directed his next verbal outrage at the Department of Justice, writing the following:

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. [citations omitted]

Judicial Watch had filed a request for Benghazi FOIA, specifically regarding Hillary emails as “smacks of outrageous conduct.” The court followed through on that by granting this discovery now.

Judicial Watch had obtained one of Hillary’s emails in their lawsuit on the matter which Lamberth cited when announcing that there will be a much deeper discovery into her correspondence. This particularly incriminating email proved that  Hillary had acknowledged that Benghazi was a terrorist attack immediately after it happened.

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,” stated Judicial Watch Tom Fitton. “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.”
