State Dept. Brings New Benghazi Emails To The Table!
A federal judge instructed the Department of State to discharge new emails stashed on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server concerning the 2012 Benghazi attack, a nonprofit government watchdog group declared on Friday.
A couple of formerly unexoposed emails are titled “Quick Summary of POTUS Calls to Presidents of Libya and Egypt” and were sent two days after the U.S. Embassy’s terrorist attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, reported Judicial Watch.
“The full emails may reveal what former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama knew about the Sept. 11, 2012, terror attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi,” mentioned the nonprofit in a statement.
The files were discharged after Judicial Watch filed a suit against the State Department following its claim the “deliberative process” exemption under the Freedom of Information Act validated redaction.
The Department of Justice requested the court to keep the emails hidden and argued that they unintentionally failed to retain the material since it contains confidential material, however U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Amy Berman Jackson instructed the release after assessing the records.
Judicial Watch suggested the malfunction “was part of a deliberate effort by the State Department to protect Clinton and the agency by avoiding identifying emails on Clinton’s unofficial, non-secure email server as classified.”
Tom Fitton, the Judicial Watch President, asked the following question “does President Trump know his State and Justice Departments are still trying to provide cover for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama?”
Fitton said this in addition “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.”
