Sincerest Liberal Flattery for a Conservative Watchdog
DECEMBER 08, 2016
“Nobody on the conservative side has hounded Democrats, especially the Clintons, as relentlessly as the self-styled anti-corruption watchdog group Judicial Watch. It has loosed avalanches of lawsuitssince its founding in 1994, most recently playing a major role in Hillary Clinton’s e-mail controversy. Even its enemies acknowledge its effectiveness; one Clinton-supporting group has charged that Judicial Watch owes its impact to “a history of dishonest activism, promoting conspiracy theories.”
So guess what Democratic activists, led by a prominent Clintonite, are doing? Creating their own version of Judicial Watch to take on Donald Trump.
“There is a dramatic public interest in stopping government corruption and demanding more transparency,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “If they want to join, good.”
Judicial Watch will continue working on behalf of the millions of Americans who demand answers from our government. Our hope is that Donald Trump, and the rest of his administration, will adhere to an anti-corruption agenda and promote transparency during his presidency.
