Ready for some jaw-dropping lawsuit announcement? Get ready to pop that bottle of champagne!
Hillary Clinton is in trouble up to her neck after latest lawsuit brings her closer to prison than ever!
Thank God for the Judicial Watch who are perseverant and professional in doing their job. They have recently filed a lawsuit against the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the State Department. They need to review and report regarding how damaging Hillary Clinton’s practices regarding the use of her private email were. The lawsuit goes straight to FBI Director James Comey and his conclusion that Hillary used an unprotected email while Secretary of State.
Despite the FBI’s claims regarding what they did or did not find in their investigation, the lawsuit states: “On or about September 14, 2016, ODNI announced that no Intelligence Community-wide damage assessment into Secretary Clinton’s email practices would be conducted and that no individual Intelligence Community member would conduct such an assessment.” This a direct violation of Intelligence Community Directive (“ICD”) 732.
Here’s more from the Judicial Watch:
Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today filed suit against the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Department of State to require them to conduct, as required by law, an assessment and prepare a report on how and whether Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email practices as U.S. Secretary of State damaged national security.
The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, cites the requirement in Intelligence Community Directive (“ICD”) 732, issued on June 27, 2014, that a damage assessment be conducted whenever there is “an actual or suspected unauthorized disclosure or compromise of classified national intelligence that may cause damage to U.S. national security” ICD 732(D)(2) (Judicial Watch v. Office of the Director of National Intelligence et al. (No. 1:17-cv-00508)).
The suit specifically refers to FBI Director James Comey’s statement on July 5, 2016, concerning Clinton’s use of an unsecure email account while conducting official State Department business:
From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 emails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification.
Along with the ODNI and the Department of State, the lawsuit picks Michael Dempsey as the acting head of the national intelligence, William Evanina as the national counterintelligence executive and Rex Tillerson as the U.S. Secretary of State. Speak about impartiality. The members of the Judicial Watch are after all who had a hand in this scandal.
By means of the Judicial Watch, they have frequently made requests regarding info about any ODNI probe of Hillary’s illegal email activities:
- On September 16, 2016, Judicial Watch sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to ODNI seeking access to records about the decision not to conduct the required assessment.
- When ODNI failed to respond to the request within the time required by FOIA, Judicial Watch filed suit. As of the date of this complaint, ODNI still has not produced any responsive records.
- On January 10, 2017, Judicial Watch sent a letter to then-Director Clapper, National Counterintelligence Executive Evanina, and then-Secretary John Kerry formally requesting that “the damage assessment required by ICD 732 be commenced without further delay.”
They have not received any reply so far regarding this scandal. “The Obama administration conspired with Hillary Clinton regarding her emails, so it is no surprise that Obama officials wouldn’t want to hold her to account for her mishandling of classified materials,” said the president of the Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton. “This lawsuit is an opportunity for the Trump administration to get back to basics on the Clinton email scandal and find out what damage was done to our national security as a result of her illicit email practices.”
We can just hope that President Trump and Tillerson will do what they promised and actually investigate Hillary’s scandal in-depth!
