Judicial Watch recently filed a FOIA lawsuit against the State Department to obtain email correspondence between Huma Abedin, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Nagla Mahmoud, wife of former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi. This lawsuit comes as a result of the State Department not responding to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on the same matter. In addition, this lawsuit seeks to expose the truth surrounding Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, which involves Clinton using a personal email account to conduct official State Department business.

“Now we know why the State Department didn’t want to respond to our specific request for Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s communications,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “The State Department violated FOIA law rather than admit that it couldn’t and wouldn’t search the secret accounts that the agency has known about for years. This lawsuit shows how the latest Obama administration cover-up isn’t just about domestic politics but has significant foreign policy implications.”
