According to a new report on Monday, former President Barack Obama’s administration improperly denied an FOIA request on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
A shocking new report reveals that the Obama White House tracked and improperly denied a FOIA request for additional information on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
Judicial Watch reported that it obtained 44 pages of records from the State Department through court-ordered discovery revealing that the Obama White House was tracking a December 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking records concerning then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. Months after the Obama White House involvement, the State Department responded to the requestor, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), falsely stating that no such records existed.
Judicial Watch’s discovery is centered upon whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a non-government email system and whether the State Department acted in bad faith in processing Judicial Watch’s FOIA request for communications from Clinton’s office. U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as E.W. Priestap, to be deposed or answer written questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
You’ll recall, Obama lied to the American people when he said that he discovered Hillary Clinton was using a private email server when we did…on the news.
