Judicial Watch: Court Orders State Department to Report on Clinton Server Search.
Judicial Watch: Court Orders State Department to Report on Clinton Server Search.HT: JudicialWatch.
Judicial Watch announced that Judge Emmet Sullivan today ordered the State Department to file by noon, Friday information about what it is doing to search Hillary Clinton’s email server now in the custody of the Justice Department and FBI.
The court also reiterated its directive that the State Department disclose additional information about where government records may reside.
The order is the result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that seeks records about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)).
This latest order shows the courts are expecting quick action on Mrs. Clinton’s email system and that the Justice Department won’t be able to bury her emails,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“And her lawyer’s letter in response to the court’s orders shows Mrs. Clinton continues to withhold material information from the court. It also looks as if Mrs. Clinton is still withholding emails from the FBI and Justice Department.”
The lawsuit was reopened because of revelations about Hillary Clinton’s email records. Read the full story here.
