Those Damn E-mails That Come Back To Haunt Just Like Benghazi!

Since the US media does such a swell job of ignoring the criminality of Hillary, the DNC, The Obama DOJ, and FBI we are lucky to have Judicial Watch in there holding them accountable!

Judicial Watch Goes to Court for Hillary Clinton Testimony

We were in federal court this week at a hearing regarding our request for testimony under oath from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Cheryl Mills and several other State Department officials about Clinton email searches. We requested these searches in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit about the Benghazi terrorist attack. U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth set the hearing.

In his October 4, 2018, order setting the hearing date, Judge Lamberth said:


Two and a half years ago, the Court granted plaintiff’s request for limited discovery, mindful of parallel proceeding before Judge Sullivan and the ongoing inquiries by the State Department’s Inspector General, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Since those proceeding have concluded, it is time to set a plan for further proceedings in this case.

The development comes in our July 2014 FOIA lawsuit filed after the U.S. Department of State failed to respond to a May 13, 2014 FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). We seek:

  • Copies of any updates and/or talking points given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency concerning, regarding, or related to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
  • Any and all records or communications concerning, regarding, or relating to talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency.This is the lawsuit that forced the Clinton email system issue into the public eye in early 2015.

In 2014, a related Judicial Watch case brought to light the fact that the “Internet video” talking points regarding the Benghazi attack were orchestrated in the Obama White House.

In March 2016, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth granted us “limited discovery,” ruling that “where there is evidence of government wrong-doing and bad faith, as here, limited discovery is appropriate, even though it is exceedingly rare in FOIA cases.” In May 2016, we filed an initial Proposed Order for Discovery seeking additional information. The State Department opposed Judicial Watch’s proposal, and in December 2016 Judge Lamberth requested both parties file new proposed orders in light of information discovered in various venues since the previous May.

In our filing, we informed the court that, despite repeated conferences with the State Department, we had been “unable to reach agreement on a discovery proposal” and that “[the State Department] is unwilling to agree to any discovery at all in this action.” Our discovery proposal focuses on two main areas:

  • Evidence of wrongdoing or bad faith with respect to State Department’s response to Plaintiff’s FOIA request for records related to the talking points provided to U.S.Ambassador Susan Rice following the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack; and 
  • Potential remedies that may ensure a sufficient search for responsive records is undertaken.\

We seek both documents and depositions. The documents requested include:

  • All documents that concern or relate to the processing of any and all searches of the Office of the Secretary for emails relating to the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack and its aftermath …
  • All communications that concern or relate to the processing of all searches referenced in Document Request No. 1 above, including directions or guidance about how and where to conduct the searches …
  • All records that concern or relate to the State Department’s policies, practices, procedures and/or actions (or lack thereof) to secure, inventory, and/or account for all records…
  • Plaintiff requests copies of the attached records [previously obtained by Judicial Watch] with the Exemption 5 redactions removed …

In addition to documents, we seek depositions, including a deposition of Hillary Clinton that would include Mrs. Clinton’s testimony on:


[the] identification of individuals (whether State Department officials, other government officials, or third-parties, including but not limited to Sidney Blumenthal) with whom Secretary Clinton may have communicated by email.
 

It is frankly unbelievable that the State Department is still protecting Hillary Clinton and her aides from being asked basic questions about her illicit email system. The courts were misled and obstructed by Hillary Clinton’s email scheme and we hope to get some more answers about this scandal.

At the hearing this morning, Judge Lamberth excoriated the Justice Department and FBI for false statements about the Clinton email issue. He also said he was “dumbfounded” by the Justice Department for granting immunity to Cheryl Mills, a top Clinton aide. Judge Lamberth noted he had found Mills to have committed perjury in another Judicial Watch lawsuit. In an April 28, 2008, ruling relating to Ms. Mills conduct as a White House official in responding to concerns about lost White House email records, Judge Lamberth called Cheryl Mills’ participation in the matter “loathsome.” He further stated Mills was responsible for “the most critical error made in this entire fiasco… Mills’ actions were totally inadequate to address the problem.”

Judge Lamberth made no ruling today but one is expected soon.

Are you haunted by the hundreds lost in Lebanon by St. Reagan?

Comment by Doc Vega on Sunday

Maui typically of a propagandist you love to make irrelevant comparisons. 1) The Marines were in Lebanon as a peacekeeping force there was no clandestine purpose. The commander on post obviously was responsible for failing to properly secure the base. 2) As opposed to Libya which the Obama State Department was subverting the Libyan government for overthrow, our Ambassador was acting as a regional arms dealer and facilitating illegal travel across Turkey to provide arms for Syrian rebels.3) That Ambassador Stevens had made repeated pleas for help from Hillary who completely ignored his cries for help for weeks even after there had been explosion in the parking lot and the outer wall had been breached by a terrorist explosive! 4) That all rescue attempts during an attack that lasted 13 hours were ordered to stand down! 5) That General Carter Ham was ordered to resign after ignoring the stand down orders and was going to mobilize his AFRICOM command until he was arrested by a junior officer 5) After Obama lied to the American people along with Hillary and used 70 thousand in US taxpayers funds to appear on Arab TV denouncing some obscure unseen film that supposedly angered Muslims who supposedly got out of control during a protest 6) With a DIA intelligence report sitting on his desk the next day proving the attack on Benghazi was a heavily coordinated military assault that had been planned for weeks! 7) That Hillary had admitted the next day on an e-mail to the Saudi's that the attack had been a terrorist operation 8) That the survivors who were wounded Diplomatic Dept. employees who were then sequestered from the public gag ordered not to speak about their experiences! 9) The only resistance to the attack was elite US mercenaries who ran several blocks from the neighboring CIA annex although ordered by the chickenshit mother fucker on duty to stand down but they refused to and fought for hours until dawn under heavy assault by hired Muslim gunmen and mortar bombardment that they were sure had been researched for weeks due to the accuracy of the grid style mortar round accuracy 10) While F-16's were on the flight line awaiting takeoff orders and told over and over again to stand down from Sigonella Italy! 11) As Obama and his administration typically operated under a veil of lies and obfuscation! 12) The fact that Hillary had hired Al Qaida for security contracts on all US facilities in Libya they every bastards that opened the gates and allowed insurgents into the compound! The bitch along with Obama should have been charged with TREASON! and this is typically how you choose to argue with fact!

There is absolutely no similarity between what happened to the US Marines at Lebanon and the US Consulate at Benghazi!
