Judicial Watch vs Clinton

"The Clinton email scandal needs to be reviewed again and immediately by the Justice Department.”
“The Clinton email scandal needs to be reviewed again and immediately by the Justice Department.”

(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced today that it has received 45 pages of FBI documents that reveal a “significant number” of 340,000 emails on the laptop of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner were between the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents as the result of a September 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department did not act on two FOIA requests for Anthony Weiner laptop investigation documents, including any Clinton emails found on the laptop (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No.1:18-cv-02105)).

The new documents include an October 3, 2016, email to a FBI official in New York that reads:

Just putting this on the record because of the optics of this case.

During the course of my review of a computer seized from Anthony Weiner, a seizure and search of which was authorized by an SDNY [Southern District of New York] Search Warrant, I encountered approximately/at least 340,000 emails stored on the computer. The large number of emails appears to be a result of a mail client program installed on that computer (such as Outlook) that pulled emails from servers belonging to both Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin.

A significant number of these 340,000 emails appeared to be between Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton (the latter who appears to have used a number of different email addresses). This is based simply a review of the header information. I did not review content of these emails, as the warrant only authorized me to view items that would give me probable cause to believe that CP [child pornography] evidence may reside therein.

SDNY is comfortable with me continuing my review as I have, which is to NOT read any emails to/from Anthony Weiner to which his wife, or a possible attorney is a party. Even if there is a third party on those emails, I will not review their content out of an abundance of caution. Obviously, I will not review any emails to which Anthony Weiner is not a party (such as emails between Ms. Abedin and Mrs. Clinton). I just wanted to formally bring this to your attention due to the pending election, the ongoing Congressional investigation into the FBI’s own investigation into Ms. Clinton’s email activities, etc.

The documents also include a September 29, 2016, FBI report indicating that after agents served unidentified persons with a grand jury subpoena on September 22, “Discussions immediately ensued between the US Attorneys’ Offices in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) and [redacted], as well as the Department of Justice in Washington, DC.”

RealClear Investigations’ reporter Paul Sperry reported that only 3,077 of the emails found on the Weiner laptop “were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.”

The Deep State continues to this day to very actively defend Hillary (and therefore also Obama and company). House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes blasted the Justice Department and the FBI for having “actively obstructed a congressional investigation” with what he sees as a political goal of waiting out Republican investigators. In an interview with fellow Republican Rep. Sean Duffy, Nunes warned the Justice Department and FBI “are putting all their chips in on that the Republicans will lose the House and all of these investigations will shut down.” The request is substantially narrower than what GOP lawmakers initially wanted President… Read more »


Not just Clinton. Clean’em all out. Drain the swamp. Perp walk them alone or in groups but perp every single one of them. Calling AG Sessions. Calling FBI Director Wray. Calling calling calling…… Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson plead the fifth amendment before the House of Representatives this week, and if he knew what was good for him, he would’ve pleaded the fifth when he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last year too. Last week we argued that Simpson lied to the Senate when he answered questions about a conspiracy surrounding the Russian “Alfa Bank” and their alleged connection… Read more »


Yet more evidence of massive corruption so where is American justice? More evidence of deliberate malfeasance on the part of the DOJ/FBI. From the destruction of evidence, to the returning (laptops etc.) containing evidence of criminality to suspects. Withholding evidence already in the hands of law enforcement to the inexplicable immunity given to major co-conspirators/suspects. Evidence of a level of damage done to America’s national security that likely will never be fully understood. So where is American justice today? If this does not cry out for a Special Prosecutor than whatever in the future will? AG Sessions serves at the… Read more »
