State Dept Says Latest Hillary Email Batch Contains 30 Deleted Benghazi Documents

State Dept Says Latest Hillary Email Batch Contains 30 Deleted Benghazi Documents

I thought Hillary didn’t delete Benghazi emails?

So remember how the State Department miraculously found a disc with 15,000 Hillary Clinton emails after the FBI finished their investigation? Yeah, now officials said at least 30 of those deleted emails are possibly about Benghazi. Wait. I thought Hillary only deleted personal emails about yoga classes?

The department must hand over those emails and documents to Judicial Watch by September 13 for its investigation into Hillary’s private email server.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

The State Department couldn’t say how many of the 30-odd emails previously have been made public, raising the possibility that some were among the 55,000 pages of emails already provided to the State Department by Mrs. Clinton’s attorneys and released to the public. The department also couldn’t say with any certainty that the identified messages were related to the Benghazi attacks.

“Using broad search terms, we have identified approximately 30 documents potentially responsive to a Benghazi-related request. At this time, we have not confirmed that the documents are, in fact, responsive, or whether they are duplicates of materials already provided to the Department by former Secretary Clinton in December 2014,” said State Department spokesman John Kirby.

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.

Judicial Watch kept its investigation going after FBI Director 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.

The department came under fire with that decision, especially when they revealed they did not even videotape its 3.5 hour interview with Hillary. The media immediately sent its own FOIA requests to the FBI for the documents and notes associated with the investigation.

The FBI announced it will release those papers on Wednesday. However, it will not release anything associated with interviews of her aides.

Come-on now! You are better than that!

Granny didn’t “do” anything…she has, in effect, been declared by the FBI as being not mentally competent to stand trial.

She didn’t personally delete those e-mails…her LAWYERS deleted the e-mails…

She didn’t ‘wipe’ the data off the server(s), she just wiped it down with a cloth or something while she was in the bathroom with it.

She will be the victim here…VRWC and all. Just wait…

She didn’t

If the federal judge who has said that the State dept is taking too long to release the new e-mails can enforce his ruling then things may heat up for hillary. Basically, she has been caught in another big lie but one in which she has made her last stand on and that is that she only deleted personal e-mails. If there are now Benghazi-related e-mails that have been deleted, then she has compounded her earlier lie. It looks like time will be the determining factor, along with redacting by Comey, in the success or failure of her run.

You misunderstand. Benjamin (Ben) Ghazi was Hillary’s yoga instructor, and was invited to Chelsea’s wedding. Nothing to see here.

    Thank you for explaining this. I was shocked to even suspect that Hillary might have lied about something. Now I can again believe she is the smartest woman to have ever lived (or whatever the claim was back 20+ years ago).

    Thanks for the laugh. But trust me, if her army of spinners & liars offered that up as an explanation her followers, and most of the MSM, would eat it up so they could remain comfortable in their delusions…

    Truth is the enemy for these people. I all its forms…..

four dead in Benghazi does not have the same ring as Four dead in O-HI-O

but the left wants to have the music

So they get released with everything redacted except for articles and pronouns. They will not give anything up other than by physical force. The DOJ, FBI and State are all in the tank for Grandma and the public is irrelevant.

State Department will come up with another excuse about not having the time or personnel.
What’s the court going to do – put Kerry in jail for contempt? Has anyone been put in jail for not producing documents on time?
The most open admin ever sure does seem to be real s l o o w at getting FOIA’s out.

Too bad this outrage won’t win a single vote in November. People love a winner, and if you can beat the system, you’re a winner. If even the FBI is afraid of you — dayum, that’s power. Sniveling about how the other side isn’t playing fair (a mainstay conservative plaint) just makes you look like a loser, no doubt part of the reason the GOP has been a loser party since Buckley…

“‘At this time, we have not confirmed that the documents are, in fact, responsive, or whether they are duplicates of materials already provided to the Department by former Secretary Clinton in December 2014,’ said State Department spokesman John Kirby.”

Does a federal judge really have to allow the DoS to determine whether or not the emails are responsive, given the fact they’ve amply demonstrated they can’t be trusted to comply with the law and any court’s orders? I would think, I would hope, the judge would be tired of their BS and could demand the DoS give him the documents yesterday and he’ll decide whether or not they’re responsive.

Or, at this point, what difference does it make?

Mary Chastain: So remember how the State Department miraculously found a disc with 15,000 Hillary Clinton emails after the FBI finished their investigation?

Um, no. Those are the emails that the FBI recovered from the server during the investigation, not something found after the investigation ended. The State Department now has to go through these emails to determine which are subject to freedom of information requests.

They can ask, but there is no evidence they were provided any special benefit.

Welcome to America!

There is close connection between money and politics. You will find this in every administration. For instance, during the Bush Administration, campaign donors often spent the night at the White House or Camp David, giving them intimate access to the ear of the President. Indeed, George Bush actually raised money for his library fund while he was still president, with donations being secret.

Maybe I’m too simple since I simply CANNOT understand how only a Conservative group like Judicial Watch has the motivation to file law suits / FOIA’s to investigate the government.

Has the disinterest of the Fourth Estate (save for occasionally Fox News) become terminal that the Democrats / Communists in office can do no wrong?

In a matter of hours, the media was the judge, jury and executioner when Dan Rather “obtained” a forged letter pertaining to George Bush’s Air National Guard Service. In our universe the media is tripping over themselves to avoid a year-long scandal that keeps regurgitating juicy bits every week.

Are the sheeple / low-information voters really that disinterested? Do cable companies block out Fox News in all large metropolis markets?

I can only imagine how the press will roast Trump immediately after the debates. He will be chastised for bringing up “settled” controversies regarding Hillary’s email server, Benghazi inaction, and Clinton Foundation bribes.

How can this get any worse?
