As today’s front page story in the New York Times reports, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton yesterday took his strong government transparency message directly to the White House:
Thomas Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch — a conservative legal advocacy group that successfully sued the Obama administration for the release of Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails — made a pointed pitch for the release of all documents pertaining to the Russia controversy, according to people who attended the session in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House.
Mr. Fitton, the participants said, told Mr. Teller that Mr. Trump needed to be committed to a policy of extreme transparency about contacts between Russian government officials and Trump associates during the 2016 campaign, including Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser, and Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law.
That the Fitton transparency message resonating at the highest possible levels – and throughout the land – is nothing new. Over the past two decades, Judicial Watch’s insistence upon full disclosure – and its relentless fight against government corruption – has earned it the sobriquet “The Peoples Department of Justice.”
And just last week, Fitton took JW’s strong transparency message to the House Committee on Government Oversight (testimony here).
