Judicial Watch Says 'Significant' Legal Win Shows We Are 'Only in the Middle' of Clinton Email Scandal

The State Department has been ordered by a federal court to turn over 30 “Clinton email-related documents” that were previously withheld on multiple privilege claims, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Friday.

The newest development could potentially reignite the Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal, which seemed to be all but over after the 2016 presidential election.

In its motion, Judicial Watch asked the court to order the release of the materials because they relate to government misconduct:

The U.S. federal government has produced two State Department Inspector General reports and a report following an FBI investigation, which collectively support the conclusion that, at a minimum, the unofficial server arrangement was misconduct even if it was not a prosecutable violation of criminal law or one that will necessarily result in civil liability.  Secretary Clinton herself has called the unofficial server arrangement a ‘mistake’ …

The 30 emails were previously withheld under “deliberative process,” “attorney client,” and “attorney work product” privileges, according to Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch also alleged the State Department may have misled the public about the Clinton email scandal:

The Vaughn [withholding index] description of these records appears to show, at least in part, a public relations campaign orchestrated by Defendant to create a false equivalence between Secretary Clinton’s unofficial server and the records management practices of former Secretaries Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, and Madeleine Albright.  No one believes that Madeleine Albright used an unofficial server located at her residence for government communications.  Nor did Colin Powell hold 30,000 government records in his possession for two years after he left the State Department.  Accordingly, it would appear that one purpose of the withheld discussions in this case was to manage the public messaging about government misconduct so as to mislead the public as to its severity.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement it is “significant that federal court will review these Clinton email documents for evidence of government misconduct.”

Hillary knew exactly what she was doing from the get go. She is a dedicated career criminal and plays everyone and the law, for fools. She needs to be prosecuted to the full letter of the law. She would be an excellent example, if she spent many years behind bars.
