(ReliableNews.org) – Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog, has been trying to get to the bottom of the Hillary Clinton email scandal for years. The organization is the one that broke the story about the former secretary of state conducting work on a private server. For eight years, the organization has been moving forward with a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to get records related to then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice discussing the attack in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead.
In August, Clinton was supposed to attend a deposition to discuss details about her private server in the case. A three-judge panel with the DC Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously decided to throw the case out. Judicial Watch is now appealing the ruling.
Judicial Watch Appeals
On October 22, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton announced his organization has appealed to have the case reheard by the full court. In a statement published at Breitbart, Fitton said the watchdog still intends “to interview Hillary Clinton.”
Judicial Watch is arguing the appeals court panel “granted Clinton extraordinary relief” while denying the same relief to General Michael Flynn. The former national security advisor has been locked in a battle with the courts for months.
Fitton says the ruling in the case against Clinton is “at odds” with the ruling against Flynn. He also said the appeals panel undermined the Freedom of Information Act precedents set by the Supreme Court by denying them the ability to depose the former secretary of state.
Will Clinton Finally Have to Answer Questions?
Questions about Clinton’s email server have swirled for years. Many people believe the FBI was wrong for not bringing charges against her in 2016 when she was investigated. Although she went before Congress and answered questions, some Americans aren’t satisfied with the answers she’s given thus far. Is it possible Judicial Act will finally be able to get more out of her?
