Right when Hillary thought she slipped her way out of the illegal email server trouble, she was told “not so fast”.
Judge Stephen Williams, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, reversed a lower court decision while chastising two government agencies which investigated the case for not lasting as long as it should have.
Williams said in his ruling that the National Archives and the Statement Department should’ve gone a step further in the investigation:
“The Department has not explained why shaking the tree harder – e.g., by following the statutory mandate to seek action by the Attorney General – might not bear more still,” wrote Williams.
“Absent a showing that the requested enforcement action could not shake loose a few more emails, the case is not moot.”
Two groups were suing, from which one of them responded to the ruling by saying:
“The courts seem to be fed up with the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce the rule of law on the Clinton emails. Today’s appeals court ruling rejects the Obama State Department’s excuses justifying its failure to ask the attorney general, as the law requires, to pursue the recovery of the Clinton emails. This ruling means that the Trump Justice Department will have to decide if it wants to finally enforce the rule of law and try to retrieve all the emails Clinton and her aides unlawfully took with them when they left the State Department.”
William in his ruling referred to the fact that neither of the two agencies recovering Clinton’s emails asked for the assistance of the US attorney general Loretta Lynch, which has ties to the Clinton’s from the infamous Whitewater investigation. One of the attorneys which represented Clinton in that case was Lynch, who also met privately with Bill Clinton on his private jets, right before the FBI announced that no charges are going to be pressed against Hillary.
“Cause for Action” was the other conservative group which joined Judicial Watch in the lawsuit. The suit was filed in order to force the agencies to dig deeper with a goal to recover ALL of Clinton’s emails. But thanks to a district judge that ruled the National Archives and the State Department and made a “sustained effort” to recover and maintain Hillary’s emails un-found, the lawsuit was dismissed.
But Williams ruled in favor of the complainants this time, so the lawsuit is cleared to be reopened.
Hillary Clinton used an illegal private email server to handle official classified government emails during her tenure as the respected Secretary of State. She then defied both FBI and Congress officials investigating, by refusing to hand over the 30,000 emails which she claimed to be personal. Those emails are still on the hunt for.
Although Hillary lied repeatedly to Congress and FBI about the server and the emails, the FBI found strong evidence that the emails on her private server were classified. Clinton also claimed that she didn’t understand the “meaning of classified” stamped on the documents, during one of the hearings.
