In a bombshell ruling certain to have both scandal-plagued presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama squirming, a federal judge has ordered the administration to hand over a selection of Clinton’s email exchanges with a federal agency to the Republican National Committee.
According to The Hill, the ruling from Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of the D.C. Circuit Court was in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by the RNC that sought communications between the U.S. Agency for International Development and those affiliated with the Clinton Family Foundation.
Jackson, incidentally, was nominated to her current position by President Barack Obama, and some reports earlier this year said she was under review for a possible Supreme Court nomination. Good luck trying to paint this as a partisan witch hunt, liberals.
The open records lawsuit specifically sought communications between USAID and Clintons top staffers during her tenure at the State Department, as well as certain individuals tied to the Clinton Foundation. At issue were allegations that the foundation exerted undue influence on the federal agency whose sole purpose is todisperse U.S. taxpayer funds to various recipients around the globe for “international development.”
The judge gave the agency until July 11 to begin releasing the communications, along with an order to set a schedule for the release of all additional communications after that.
This will not be good for Clinton, as the release date of the potentially damaging and incriminating emails exposing her corruption will be made public a mere two weeks before the Democrat National Convention kicks off in Philadelphia, where it is presumed that she will receive the party’s nomination.
In a separate but related story, The Hill also reported that the administration had filed a motion to try to kill another open records lawsuit filed by the RNC against Clinton regarding her email, essentially claiming that it would take too long for them to comply.
The Justice Department stated that complying with the FOIA request would require them to search through more than 1.5 million pages of documents. It called the request “unreasonable” because, “(c)ompiling, reviewing, and redacting documents responsive to these requests would take the State Department decades.” READ MORE
