Judicial Watch claims the Obama administration deceived it by denying that Hillary Clinton was using a personal email account to conduct official State Department business as Secretary of State. As Judicial Watch’s president Tom Fitton notes, this scandal may have an impact on JW’s pending FOIA requests and lawsuits in relation to Hillary Clinton and the Benghazi scandal. In response to this scandal, Judicial Watch has filed new FOIA litigation to get to the bottom of it. You can read more about this litigation here and here.
Here is a quote from Tom Fitton, found in the article, elaborating on this scandal’s impact on JW’s pending FOIA litigation:
“We are concerned that the Obama administration may have withheld material information and may have purposely misled and lied to Judicial Watch, as well as at least one federal court about these emails, “said Fitton. “One key concern is that these emails must be immediately secured so that they can be searched in response to our lawful FOIA requests. In addition to violations of the Freedom of Information Act, laws governing the preservation of federal records and the handling of classified information also may be implicated in this latest Clinton scandal.”
