Judicial Watch sues DOJ for Anthony Weiner emails
SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against the Justice Department to recover all of the materials found on the laptop of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, the conservative watchdog group said Tuesday.
The lawsuit claims the Justice Department denied two Freedom of Information Act requests for the emails, seized by the FBI in September 2016.
Judicial Watch is seeking all records retrieved from the laptop search along with any communication among FBIofficials related to the investigation.
Last month, RealClearInvestigations reported that the FBI reviewed only 3,077 of the nearly 700,000 emails found on the laptop as it sought evidence that Weiner had lewd exchanges with a 15-year old girl.
