Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton has been discussing the latest developments in the efforts to shed some more light on the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
This week Fitton explained his organization is moving forward after a federal judge approved discovery into the former secretary of state’s use of private emails for official business. However, Judicial Watch is facing resistance from the government and has made a request to President Trump.
“Outrageously, this Justice Department is colluding with Clinton email witnesses to stop our efforts to gather evidence in federal court,” stated Fitton. “President Trump should ask this Justice Department why they are still protecting Hillary Clinton.”
This comes after a hearing earlier this month, when a judge questioned whether or not the government acted in good faith while investigating the email scandal.
He described the private server as one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency, and granted Judicial Watch’s request to gather more information in the case.
