SEPTEMBER 01, 2017
A federal judge has ordered the FBI to release new details regarding the subpoenas the bureau issued during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
On Thursday, James Boasberg, a judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, ruled in favor of watchdog groups Cause of Action and Judicial Watch, which are suing the government for failing to properly preserve the former secretary of state and failed presidential candidate’s emails.
Cause of Action and Judicial Watch are still seeking thousands of Clinton’s emails, but the order Thursday is a first step in revealing more information into how the FBI’s case was handled.
The lawsuit led to the discovery of additional classified emails by Clinton that were never disclosed by the State Department, in March.
