Judicial Watch will receive the documents and hope to release them by early October.
Whoops! Judicial Watch’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal continues as a federal judge told the State Department to expedite the release of 15,000 emails the FBI discovered that her attorneys did not turn over.
The watchdog group has kept a close eye on the scandal, at first questioning Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s jobs before she went to the State Department. It unraveled to show that Hillary used an unsecure server and that many of her foundation’s donors asked her for special favors when she served as Secretary of State.
The State Department attorney would not tell Judge James Boasberg exactly how many emails “Disc 1” holds, which led the judge to tell them to release them as soon as possible:
“It looks like the State Department is trying to slow-roll the release of the records,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in an interview Monday morning. “They’ve had them for at least a month, and we still don’t know when we’re going to get them.”
Judicial Watch hopes to release the documents in early October.
The disc contains emails Hillary “sent or received during her tenure as secretary of state, and they were not among the 55,000 documents turned over by her lawyers last year.”
The announcement comes days after Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of Federal District Court in Washington put Judicial Watch a step closer by telling Hillary she must provide written testimony under oath, also known as interrogatories, about her private email server in connection to Judicial Watch’s lawsuit.
The watchdog group asked “permission to depose Clinton; the Director of Office of Correspondence and Records of the Executive Secretariat (“S/ES-CRM”) Clarence Finney; and [former Director of Informatio Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat (“S/ES-IRM”) John] Bentel.”
Judicial Watch kept their investigation going after FBI James Comey said he would not recommend the Depart of Justice press charges against Hillary, even though he admitted she and her staff were “extremely careless” using her private server.DONATE
