Judge Orders State Dept to Release More Hillary Emails by Sept 13

Judge Orders State Dept to Release More Hillary Emails by Sept 13

State will need to cough up any emails between Hillary and the White House from the week of the Benghazi attack

A federal judge in Florida ordered the State Department turn over any emails between Hillary Clinton and the White House that were sent or received during the week of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack by September 13, only three days after a federal judge in DC gave officials a September 23 deadline.

Judicial Watch has been investigating Clinton’s emails for months, discovering that she did not use a secure private email server and that Clinton Foundation donors asked her for special favors when she served as Secretary of State.

The State Department claimed they needed until October 14 to filter through the emails, but Judge James Boasberg told the State Department to release the documents to Judicial Watch by September 23. Judge William Dimitrouleas, who is overseeing another Judicial Watch complaint, demanded the department release the emails 10 days earlier:

“It is astonishing that Hillary Clinton tried to delete and hide Benghazi emails and documents. No wonder federal courts in Florida and DC are ordering the State Department to stop stalling and begin releasing the 14,900 new Clinton emails,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

The State Department is only required to give Judicial Watch emails that fit with its Freedom of Information Act request:

The first batch of new emails comes in response to a court order issued today in a November 13, 2015, Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit filed against the Department of State seeking all communications between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama White House from the day of the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi and throughout the following week.

In a separate case, Judicial Watch has been seeking Clinton’s communications about the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, during which U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith were killed. A second assault targeted a nearby compound, killing two government contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00692)).

Judicial Watch is also scheduled to receive documents from the State Department in a case arising out of FOIA lawsuit before Judge Emmet G. Sullivan that seeks records about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, former Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton. The lawsuit was reopened because of revelations about the clintonemail.com system.

Last week, 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, concerning 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 its investigation going after FBI James Comey said he would not recommend the Department of Justice press charges against Hillary, even though Comey admitted Hillary and her staff were “extremely careless” using a private email server.

    “Let no one be mistaken Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded,” Perry said during a speech in Washington, D.C.

    “It cannot be pacified or ignored for it will destroy a set of principles that has lifted more people out of poverty than any force in the history of the civilized world and that is the cause of conservatism.”
    –Rick Perry, July 2015

    And nobody forgets you hate/hold in contempt conservatives, and seek to “discredit” us. Which at least at one point, included Mr. Perry. That is now very much in doubt.

      BreakWind doesn’t care about the merits of what you are saying Rags.

      Nor does BreakWind really care about Trump or getting him elected.

      BreakWind is simply obsessed with attacking you because he likes smelling his own BreakWind posts.

        Ragspierre in reply to legacyrepublican. | August 26, 2016 at 2:30 pm

        If we take him at his word (HA!), this is the grand zenith of his years-long “project” to destroy the GOP and “discredit” conservatives.

        He’s a nutter. But I don’t doubt there’s some merit to your observation.

    Breakwind you have moved past the troll stage!
    Please go away!

Question for the legal beagles on here.
If Wickileaks has Hillary’s personal deleted emails and releases them , are they evidence that could be used
They were not obtained thru a warrant and there would be no chain of custody.
Can anyone answer that?

    Ragspierre in reply to dmi60ex. | August 26, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    Evidence is always a big issue, regardless of from where it derives. It’s just a matter of relative difficulty.

    In the case of Wiki stuff, without a sponsor who can testify, I would think its admission would be very hard over well-founded objections to authenticity. One reason we do discovery and ask the other side for documents we may already have is that under the rules, the presumption is that material that comes from the other side is authentic.

    OTOH, they could…conceivably…be used to provide the basis for a LOT of really hard interrogations IF used very skillfully.

    I am afraid that you are using logic again when talking about the law and hillary. Like Trey Gowdy pointed out yesterday, FBI director Comey said he could not find any “Intent” for hillary’s misconduct. The very first thing Gowdy found was the program she used to delete her 30,000+ e-mails which is used by people who not only want to delete e-mails but to make them unrecoverable. Does that sound like Comey may be now trying to cover his own a$$? 1/3 of Abedin’s e-mails were TOTALLY blacked out! Guess who gets to black them out? Comey and his boys. Can it be that intent was in many of them? I do not believe that any e-mail discovered will cause the hillary supporters to abandon her nor will it make an investigation of her likely from the FBI or DoJ.

She’s like a turd that won’t flush. She’s also teflon, it’s impossible to get things to stick to her. I’m glad emails have been ordered to be released next month. However, you know and I know nothing damning will be found. Even if it were, the media will on cheer her on even stronger. Nothing short of an aneurysm or stroke is going to keep her from winning in November.

You know what I haven’t seen in all these “recovered emails”….. emails about yoga routines and bridesmaids!

I just love the way these Hillary supporters tell you what I & others that disagree with them have said. They must think you’re stupid.
Trump~Pence 2016 ; Perry 4 senate,2018.

And the penalty that the State Department will pay for not releasing these documents is…

Nothing.

    As Stalin said, when informed that the Pope objected to his occupation of Poland, “How many tank divisions does the Pope command?”

    When the DOJ is corrupt, and the current administration doesn’t care about appearances because a) it’s done [hopefully] in five months and b) the MSM will lie, censor, and character assassinate to cover for the Dems, the Judicial system indeed has no tank divisions to command.

      Under clinton the first and obama, we have seen the total corruption of our government and the agencies therein. Both have used every agency they could to further their liberal and corrupt agendas. What baffles me is the msm protecting not only their corrupt ways but also protecting the most evil organization on earth, islam. In other words, our own government and the msm are both so corrupt that to expect any action against what they stand for is foolish.
