Fitton Praises Court Order to Probe Whether Hillary Tried to Thwart FOIA With Private Email Server
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton praised a federal judge who ordered an additional fact-finding mission into whether Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server was a deliberate effort to thwart the Freedom of Information Act of 1967.
District of Columbia Federal Judge Royce Lamberth, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, ruled that despite previous investigations, Fitton's organization should be allowed to subpoena documents and individuals in the matter.
Fitton said that Lamberth didn't just criticize the Obama State Department and Justice Department, but "highlighted the problems" of the Trump DOJ continuing to "defend the indefensible."
He said the court was "not terribly convinced" that then-FBI Director Jim Comey executed a thorough enough investigation of Clinton.
"The courts had been hoodwinked here," he said. "Some people like Mrs. Clinton potentially will have to answer further questions."
Fitton also dismissed the notion by Democrats that first daughter Ivanka Trump's initial use of private email had anything near the scope of Clinton's.
