Judicial Watch Sues Justice, State Departments Seeking Uranium One Docs
APRIL 11, 2018
Judicial Watch announced Tuesday it is suing the Justice and State departments to force release of documents on the controversial Obama-era Uranium One deal, which gave Russia control over roughly 20 percent of all U.S. supplies of a resource essential to the nation’s defense.
“It is simply remarkable that Judicial Watch had to sue the State and Justice departments in federal court for basic information about the shady Uranium One deal,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement announcing the suit, which was filed March 29.
Judicial Watch is a nonprofit government watchdog that has filed hundreds of lawsuits under the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which guarantees public access to all government documents not covered under a handful of specific exemptions.
