Want To See The Hillary E-mails? There’s A Potential Lawsuit For That

Hillary Clinton has been busted using a private e-mail address, in violation of Federal law, during her time as Secretary of State. Many people are wondering what does she have to hide. Hillary tweeted this out today.

What Hillary forgets to tell you is that the e-mails are on a private server. The State Department can’t release what they don’t have.

Along comes Judicial Watch, who are ready to make Hillary eat her words. Judicial Watch filed a few Freedom of Information Act requests with the State Department demanding access to Hillary’s e-mails. Here’s what they had to say in a press release:

Judicial Watch submitted the FOIA requests on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 seeking:

The 55,000 pages of emails received by the Department of State from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton: from October 1, 2014, to present.
Any and all emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State during her tenure: from February 2, 2009, to January 31, 2013.
Any and all emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton concerning, regarding or relating to the September 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya: from September 11, 2012, to January 31, 2013
The State Department lawfully must provide these documents, or a justification for withholding them, to Judicial Watch within 20 working days, or be subject to federal lawsuits under FOIA.

“There are nearly 20 lawsuits and dozens of other FOIA requests that may have been compromised by Mrs. Clinton’s secret email accounts,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We are tired of the Obama/Clinton shell games and will sue as soon as the law allows if this administration continues to unlawfully withhold this material from the American people. In the meantime, we have placed the Department of Justice and the State Department on notice that we expect all secret State Department email accounts, including those of Hillary Clinton, to be secured and searched as the law requires.

“We have no doubt that our 20 Freedom of Information lawsuits against the State Department, one of which led to the creation of the House Select Committee on Benghazi last year, forced the State Department to finally admit to Hillary Clinton’s illicit concealment of government records.”

I don’t know about you, but I want to see what Hillary has been hiding from us on her private e-mail. The American people have a right to know what kind of decisions were made and how those decisions were made.

This is another reason I don’t think Hillary Clinton is as inevitable as many people believe she is. Ultimately, there’s a stench and slime around the Clintons that is so repellant to so many people. Bill charms through it in a glib way, much like Edwin Edwards does here in Louisiana, but Hillary possesses none of her husband’s charm. The biggest reason Hillary is going nowhere near reporters is that the more people see her, the less people like her.

The way Republicans defeat Hillary Clinton is by reminding the country how much of a scumbag she is. Hillary will do enough on her end to help remind the American people of that. Once the American people realize how much they hate Hillary, all the Republican has to do is just not screw up.

Democrats can ruin this scenario though by not nominating Hillary.
