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.DONATE
