(READ) Judicial Watch wins $97k in State Dept. lawsuit re: Hillary Clinton’s unsecured emails

Judicial Watch has settled its 2014 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit which sought the emails of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding the Benghazi, Libya attacks by Islamic extremist terrorists. The lawsuit exposed Clinton’s unlawful use of a nongovernment email server to conduct government business.

This FOIA lawsuit forced the Obama administration to admit to Hillary Clinton’s hidden classified and other government emails in 2015.

Judicial Watch also uncovered “talking points” created by the Obama White House and other documents showing that then-National Security Advisor Susan Rice and others made false statements about the attacks on the eve of the 2012 elections. The Obama administration feared that if it was revealed that its poor security resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including a US ambassador, at the hands of Islamic extremist terrorists who’d warned of the attacks in advance, that it could jeopardize Obama’s re-election.

On December 6, 2018, US District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Susan Rice, to be deposed or answer written questions under oath. Judge Lamberth called the Clinton email system “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” 

On March 2, 2020, Lamberth authorized Judicial Watch to depose Clinton about her emails and the existence of relevant Benghazi attack documents. The court also ordered the deposition of Clinton’s former Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills, and two other State Department officials. Mills has repeatedly been caught or accused of destroying government documents.

The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, in an extraordinary intervention, exempted Clinton and Mills from testifying under oath. They had been given great, unprecedented latitude by the Dept. of Justice during Clinton’s run for president even after Clinton destroyed thousands of subpoenaed documents.

“The Clinton email scandal uncovered by Judicial Watch’s simple FOIA lawsuit changed the course of American history and led to Hillary Clinton’s defeat in 2016. Our historic lawsuit is now officially over and settled through a remarkable payment of $97,000 by the corrupt State Department. Hillary Clinton ignored the law but received special protection from both the courts and law enforcement.

For countless Americans, this double standard of justice destroyed their confidence in the fair administration of justice. Americans would never have known about Hillary Clinton’s classified email and related pay-for-play criminality but for Judicial Watch’s diligence.

We expect that the Biden State and Justice Departments will continue to protect her and cover up their own misconduct as we press for additional accountability through the courts.”

Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch President

  1. Talk about the wheels of justice turning slowly. Hillary’s email CRIMES ]the stuff of front-page news — followed on a daily basis by many millions of people (including me) — and have long since been buried in history by a plethora of stories concocted for the purpose of burying Hillary’s email CRIMES.

    In a society with a functioning justice system, Hillary would have gone to prison and still be in prison for her email CRIMES and for all of the fabrications (Russiagate, etc.) invented to shift attention away from her crimes.

  2. Why this information isn’t article worthy (and commentary worthy), implicitly reveals both the skullduggery and biased reportage of our Main Stream Media (MSM).
    It should be devastating to them and they should be hanging their head in shame. But they won’t. And why won’t they? Because they are the MSM-the champions of Progressive destructions everywhere.
    Thus,, since it won’t be reported (except at Attkisson’s site), their one-sidedness not only won’t be discovered, it will be nudged into the Orwellian memory-hole.
    The info NOT disclosed by the MSM is breathtaking.
    If in someway the non-reportage could have switched the Hillary and Obama names to Trump and his previous administration, then there would have been articles in all MSM and the headlines would have blared forth.
    It is to bad that by the time the MSM is held accountable-for reporting what isn’t true and for not reporting what is true-the country will be gone. And one of the leading contenders for the downfall of this country will be the MSM.
    If the participants of the MSM weren’t so arrogant and had any conscience at all they would hang their heads in shame (but then if they had any heads at all they wouldn’t work for the MSM)!

  3. You should incorporate a “thumps up” feature into your comment section Sharyl. I would like to give a positive review to each comment above. I agree with both. The only thing I hold out hope on is that someday unbiased historians will revisit this time in America’s history and will find people accountable. At that time Obama will be shown in school texts to be the most corrupt President in our history. As we learned about “Tammany Hall” and the “Tea-pot Dome” scandal in high school, they will learn about “Benghazi” and “Russia Collusion”.

  4. We expect that the Biden State and Justice Departments will continue to protect her and cover up their own misconduct as we press for additional accountability through the courts.”

    Tom Fitton, I suspect you are 100% correct in that assessment. A sad commentary about the state of affairs in USA. Declining into the world of China, Russia, Iran, N.Korea.

  5. Only $97k? JW is clearly a victim with damage, legal costs and defamation. Trump is being forced to pay $350m to the gov’t for taking out a loan. Agree upon terms were paid back with interest to a company that testified they were not a victim in any way. Hard to convince me there are no politics in our judicial system!

  6. I remember this crap-show. The ambassador was supposed to get kidnapped at this undefended outpost to allow them to trade the imprisoned Blind Shiek,for his freedom. Those pesky SEALs ruined their plans. Then Obama and hiLIARys terrorist friends raped and murdered the ambassador but then again ,it was so long ago what does it matter…
