Last week, the State Department’s Inspector General released their report after a three-year investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a homebrew email server, and it found that she violated numerous federal regulations in doing so. Immediately after, Barack Obama made an utterly enraging move that reeks of him trying to protect the eventual Democrat nominee for president.
Apparently, Obama is willing to do anything to protect his pal Hillary from ever being held responsible for her numerous misdeed while serving as secretary, including using his Justice Department as a political weapon. After it was determined that Hillary was guilty of violating numerous regulations, which are created to ensure compliance with federal law surrounding classified information, Loretta Lynch moved to bock her from being deposed in a related lawsuit from Judicial Watch.
The lawlessness never seems to end with this corrupt group.
Here’s more on what happened, courtesy of The Hill:
The Obama administration is trying to prevent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from being deposed in an ongoing open records case connected to her use of a private email server.
Late Thursday evening, the Justice Department filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.
Judicial Watch is “seeking instead to transform these proceedings into a wide-ranging inquiry into matters beyond the scope of the court’s order and unrelated to the FOIA request at issue in this case,” government lawyers wrote in their filing, referring to the Freedom of Information Act.
The lawyers wrote that the request to interview Clinton “is wholly inappropriate” before depositions are finished in a separate case also concerning the email server.
Judicial Watch’s FOIA case began as a way to seek documents about talking points related to the 2012 terror attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, but has since grown to encompass wider questions about Clinton’s use of a personal server while working as secretary of State.
Last week, Judicial Watch asked the court to interview Clinton and five other current and former State Department officials about the server, after it received a judge’s permission to move ahead with the process.
Isn’t that lovely? It must be nice for corrupt government officials to have a corrupt president and attorney general on their side, wouldn’t you say?
For those unaware, here’s some more on the Inspector General’s report regarding Hillary’s homebrew server:
“Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary,” the report states. “At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”
Additionally, the report slammed Clinton for not getting permission for the server from the people who would have had to approve the technology, despite having an “obligation to discuss using her personal email account” with them.
“However, according to these officials, [the relevant people] did not — and would not — approve her exclusive reliance on a personal email,” the report said, which is likely why the watchdog also “found no evidence that the Secretary requested or obtained guidance or approval to conduct official business via a personal email account on her private server.”
That all seems rather relevant to Judicial Watch’s suit, wouldn’t you say? With any kind of luck, a President Trump will hold these miscreants responsible for their unlawful actions to set an example after they hijacked our government and used it for nothing more than personal gain.
