Liberals cribbing from conservatives’ playbook to attack Trump
“The post-election scramble to build a liberal version of Judicial Watch is underway. The working theory: if you can’t beat ’em, copy ’em.
Activists and donors on the left looking to avenge Hillary Clinton’s loss have zeroed in on how the conservative watchdog peppered the Democratic nominee with lawsuits over her use of a private email server and managed to drag out the damaging story through much of the election year. Some are eager to create a similar organization to try to take a pound of political flesh out of incoming President Donald Trump.”
Below is a tweet from Judicial Watch President, Tom Fitton, on the first few reports of liberal groups forming their equivalent of Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch is a leader in FOIA litigation, yet many liberal groups deny our existence. Below is another tweet by Chris Farrell, this time highlighting the liberal media recognizing the New York Times as one of the the largest FOIA litigators since 2001, and completely ignoring Judicial Watch (who has files dozens more FOIA requests since 2001).

Judicial Watch will continue their investigations into corrupt government officials and bureaucrats. And Judicial Watch will continue being a leading force in bringing the truth to light through our FOIA investigations.
