Federal Court Demands Release Of Hillary's State Dept Emails On Benghazi Attack

A Washington DC federal court judge has ordered the State Department to turn over Hillary Clinton’s emails that immediately followed the terrorist attack in Benghazi to the conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch.

As RT reports, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson reviewed the documents and rejected the government’s contention that the records had been properly withheld under FOIA exemption.

The “Defendant contends that it properly withheld eight identical paragraphs in two different emails, which were summaries of calls between the President of the United States and the Presidents of Libya and Egypt in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack,” wrote Judge Jackson in her memorandum opinion on March 20.

The State Department argued the summaries were meant to provide information to senior officials to be used in their decision making on how to respond to a national security crisis.

Plaintiffs argued the subject line of the email “Quick Summary of POTUS Calls to Presidents of Libya and Egypt," and the FYSA annotation, a common acronym for 'For Your Situational Awareness' “refute any suggestion of careful analysis, deliberation or judgment.

“The Court finds that the two records, even if just barely pre-decisional, are not deliberative,” and “the Court finds that the misconduct exception cannot be evoked in this FOIA action…and defendant’s motion for summary judgment be granted in part and denied in part… Defendant is instructed to produce documents C05739592 and CO5739595 to plaintiff,” wrote Judge Jackson.

Judicial Watch hopes the emails will reveal what Obama and Clinton knew following the attack.

“Does President Trump know his State and Justice Departments are still trying to provide cover for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama?” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

 

“An extraordinary court ruling that could result in key answers about the Benghazi outrage is being opposed by the Trump administration. This may well be an example of the ‘deep state’ trying to get away with a cover up – if so then the Trump administration must put a stop to it.

Perhaps it "does make a difference" after all...

When the news originally broke blaming the "disturbance" on a video, I found the video and guess what?
At that time there had only been about 4,000 hits on it.
Had it fueled the revolution, it would have had millions in raised adoration and praise as the martyr of the cause.
Not.

All fake. 
Everything is fake.

The funniest thing was during the first 24hrs they tried to frame it as a "protest" over the video.

I'm like..."Yes! Of course! Everybody turns up to protest with RPG's & AK's!"...lol.

you may be more prescient than you think.

"I showed up to a protest and a firefight broke out."

Maybe, but damn sure everything, and I mean everything, is a fucking lie. Every single word out of their filthy sewers is a lie. Liars lying to liars who lie to themselves. Fuck. Them.

And wtf with the clear text login Tylers? Stop being fucking jews - SSL offload is cheap - who you helping out anyway? Storing password in the clear on the backend too?

I remember very well, that while for a week Americans where being lied to like sheep, the rest of the world knew the truth.  It was embarrassing. 

I remember reading on a north African English language news site about the organized attack.  My Dutch Father in-law, who still reads the foreign press, knew the first day what was going on.  The truth was out there for the world to see, day one, and yet for a week America was led down the path of Propaganda, and hardly anyone batted an eye, we reelected Bozo anyway!

We're THE MOST propagandized nation in the history of the world, and yet the information highway is wide open for any of us to see.  The land of the free has become the land that loves being a slave, loves their ignorance, loves their fat happy entertained bliss, and will beat you up if you try to awake them.

It's pathetic!

WTF!!   Trump gets that the MEDIA is his enemy.  He understands media.  He understands PR.

He still doesn't seem to get that the State Depart, DOJ, are still his enemy!!  An enemy HE actually has some control OVER!!!  Unlike the media.

What's he waiting for!!

His butterflies would agree.

Maybe he has less control over them than we think. Or, more likely, maybe Trump has discovered they have a way to control HIM.

I am trying very hard not to down-vote you just for your avatar.

(Your name does make up for it, somewhat. Still... I don't know how long I can hold out.)

Someone beat me to it.

CNN peddles fiction. There, is that better?

I get that, but it's just so damn tempting; it's a knee-jerk thing, I suppose. I'll get over it.

It sure is an eye-catcher.

Read into my comments though.

My first two comments are not very friendly with TPTB and their current stooge.

You've got some research to do. Not speed reading.

So far it seems the swamp is draining Trump.

I also want to see Webb Hubbell's kid do some time too.   Otherwise she will be flying around the country using CGI money to become Senator Somewhere in a state she has never lived it.

MoreFreedom's picture

I think the result will simply be to further validate that Clinton and Obama are big time liars who put themselves and their power before the country.

I don't believe any of their comments that "it was caused by a video" were made under oath.

Abe Lincoln's observations about fools still apply.

Jeff Sessions, you're at bat.

chubbar's picture

If I were Sessions I'd hire a few top notch loyalists to go through every fucking person working at state and vet them. Fire every little cocksucker that is loyal to the DEMs or Obama ASAP. The state dept needs to be up and running hard with all the shit they have to clean up from the last 8 years.

chunga's picture

I'd seriously nominate you to take his place. Sessions reminds me of Mike Pence...I don't like or trust him to do anything good.

They don't make brooms that big and even IF they did, there's no one there willing or capable to use it. They all have dirt on each other. This is another distraction to get people's hopes up. Killary nailed it in her testimony "what difference does it make"? A lot to the victims families and for us who cry out for justice but nothing to these blood thirsty satanic worshippers.

K. So, after the Headline was changed up, I did say it and I mean it. However, given the facts that some people in D.C. have a potential row, I still don't give a fuck.

Since Trump is in office there is no threat to US sovereignty based on the facts. Even though Hillary may be charged with espionage. I'd wager that whatever happens in D.C. has zero interest to the States. Should not, and ought not. As a matter of fact, whatever D.C. decides to do should have no effect or interest to anyone outside D.C. or the American protectorates or the military and federal employees, judges, lawyers, patent clerks, epa staff or the NEA.

So Fuck the Government. Long live the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and Washington DC can fuck itself. I'm proud of Trump but I don't give a fuck what happens in San Francisco either.

God dammit, this is Washington, D.C. This is important!

No. No it's not.

Hillary should be indicted with extreme prejudice. Nafta should be given the finger. Nato should be told to fuck off. States Rights should stand. Sherriffs should arrest ICE and Border Patrol if states have a beef. Federal funding should be cut. The EPA, NEA, PBS, NPR, and every other tax funded propaganda arm of the Federal government should be ditched. That's where I'm going.

Hopefully it will go somewhere, but, um, that's like saying we'll hit on the gold standard again.

Anyhow, have a nice day.

The Clinton's are the cancer which brought the Democrat Party into near-death, the only way to restart the party is by taking the Clinton's out of it.
