Judicial Watch File New Clinton Email Lawsuit

Judicial Watch file new Hillary Clinton email lawsuit

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a new Hillary Clinton email lawsuit in the wake of the Obama administration covering up her crimes.

According to the lawsuit, Hillary Clinton’s illegal email practises were wilfully ignored by the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of State.

Judicial Watch reports:

So we have filed suit against the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Department of State to require them to conduct, as required by law, an assessment and prepare a report on how and whether Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email practices as U.S. secretary of state damaged national security.

The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, cites the requirement in Intelligence Community Directive (“ICD”) 732, issued on June 27, 2014, that a damage assessment be conducted whenever there is “an actual or suspected unauthorized disclosure or compromise of classified national intelligence that may cause damage to U.S. national security” ICD 732(D)(2) (Judicial Watch v. Office of the Director of National Intelligence et al. (No. 1:17-cv-00508)).

The suit specifically refers to FBI Director James Comey’s devastating statement on July 5, 2016, concerning Clinton’s use of an unsecure email account while conducting official State Department business:

From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 emails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification.

Despite the FBI findings and the requirements of Intelligence Community Directive 732, however, the suit argues that: “On or about September 14, 2016, ODNI announced that no Intelligence Community-wide damage assessment into Secretary Clinton’s email practices would be conducted and that no individual Intelligence Community member would conduct such an assessment.”

In addition to the ODNI and the State Department, the suit names Michael Dempsey in his official capacity as acting director of national intelligence, William Evanina in his official capacity as national counterintelligence executive, and Rex W. Tillerson in his official capacity as U.S. secretary of state.

Judicial Watch has made repeated requests for information concerning any intelligence investigation of Clinton’s email practices:

  • On September 16, 2016, Judicial Watch sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to ODNI seeking access to records about the decision not to conduct the required assessment.
  • When ODNI failed to respond to the request within the time required by FOIA, Judicial Watch filed suit. As of the date of this complaint, ODNI still has not produced any responsive records.
  • On January 10, 2017, Judicial Watch sent a letter to then-Director Clapper, National Counterintelligence Executive Evanina, and then-Secretary John Kerry formally requesting that “the damage assessment required by ICD 732 be commenced without further delay.”

We have received no response to our January request for a damage assessment, and we’re not aware of any report or announcement indicating that the assessment and resulting report required by ICD 732 has been conducted or prepared.  Judicial Watch is therefore asking the court to:

[O]rder Defendants to conduct the required damage assessment and prepare a report in accordance with ICD 732 …

The Obama administration conspired with Hillary Clinton regarding her emails, so it is no surprise that Obama officials wouldn’t want to hold her to account for her mishandling of classified materials. This new JW lawsuit is an opportunity for the Trump administration to get back to basics on the Clinton email scandal and find out what damage was done to our national security as a result of her illicit email practices.

          Ain’t no child your the one who doesnt have a clue

          • Brent Lutz

            So your claim is that Trump pays a higher tax rate than Buffett then? Would love to see the ten year record that proves that … oh right, doesn’t exist. Congrats.

          • mike bolen

            Hey moron in 2005 trump paid a larger rate than buffet Google it buffet brags about rich people should be paying more in taxes everyone but him he is a loser who took advantage of him partner and fired him a nice guy

          • Brent Lutz

            Uh ok. There is no one that would support these statements because they’re completely untrue (including the utter lack in logic of isolating 1 year out of decades of relevant info). I’ve already confused you now though, haven’t I? Sorry for your spelling and grammar trouble. I’ll chalk it up to you being a paid troll. Congrats on being the dregs of society. “him partner”. Really? Christ. It’s honestly astonishing that losers like you can possibly exist.

          • katherine cassell harvey

            Lets see your taxes and see how much money you paid. I know exactly how much i paid

          • katherine cassell harvey

            And that is why if you are a business man you hire the best accountant you can. And not turbo tax

          • LogicBomb

            You are an idiot Buffet donated 30 billion dollars. There is only one person on this planet who has donated more and that is Bill Gates. Learn to do some resesrch for gods sake. Please send your children to different schools than you attended to af least give them a chance in the real world.

          • eric

            Wow 30 million and Clinton’s still not able to buy the presidency. What a waste.

          • mike bolen

            Buffet takes a low salary so his tax rate is low but wants others to pay there fair share give me a break he is a sleezy why else would he support obammy

          • Shel

            #1 you have no right to see them #2 you wouldn’t understand them. #3 still butthurt about the CRIMINALS loss ? Move to North Korea

          • Chris

            Actually the American people have every right to see them. Considering we handle taxes on a yearly basis, I’m sure we can understand Agent Orange’s taxes. Keep diverting attention from the fact that your candidate is going down in flames. He only gets louder as more info comes to the surface.

          • joe owens

            Actually, unless you do taxes for a living, and we’re hired by President Trump, his taxes are none of your business.

          • katherine cassell harvey

            Joe you are so right the very ones that are complaining probably have no job. Accounts are the ones that gi to.the audits. Snd most accounts are retired from the irs

          • katherine cassell harvey

            You are so right Joe. Thesenpeople would not even know what they are looking at if they had his tax return

          • katherine cassell harvey

            How much have you paid in taxes and do you even work?

          • LogicBomb

            How is that question Even relevant what if somebody is 25 and the other person 60 then obviously their tax burdens have been different your questionis just absurd. We have a right to see tax returns because our president is s publicfigure and all public figures are open to scrutuny.

          • Florence Sciara Simpson

            You have no right at all to see his tax returns. Not a requirement to running for our being elected as POTUS, just like separating oneself from their businesses isn’t a requirement either.

          • katherine cassell harvey

            Just like we have the right to see all of Clintons emails. I bet her emails are alot worse than anything Trump could have in his taxes. My husband has a business and the accountant does everything. All he has to do is sign them. A good accountant is like money in the bank. All deductions and losses from business and clothing food and hotels that you stay at on business..in Trumps case fuel for his aircraft dinners. Should i get the tax codes and deduction books out for you.

          • Florence Sciara Simpson

            Chris, please provide information where it states that you have a right to see President Trumps tax returns. Now, I can show you why we have a right to know where 30,000 publicly owned emails were deleted after be subpoenaed. I will show you where it states what should happen to anyone who lies under oath. I will show you what should happen to anyone who commits illegal activity , especially felonies. Please, show me where you have the right to see his tax returns. Is it the same right that I have to demand knowing specifically where the money is being spent on PPH?

          • katherine cassell harvey

            Florence we have the right to see all 650,000 thatbwas on Weiners computer. We need to see them asap so we can know where to start looking for our missing children. And all these people harp about is Teumps taxes and the stupid Russian story we now find out that Obama and hrc was spying on the whole family for 8 years. You can bet if the dems ate blaming someone for corruption they are the very ones you want to kerp and eye.on like Obama and Clinton

          • katherine cassell harvey

            Why don’t you get a life and help find the 14 kids that are missing in DC

          • Shel

            The American people have absolutely no right to see the president’s taxes they are truly important there is an investigation on Clinton in fact on the entire Clinton crime syndicate unless you file taxes on multiple businesses you will never understand them have a good life

          • Brent Lutz

            #1 I didn’t claim I had the right to see them; someone else is claiming that he pays a higher tax rate than Buffett and others though, and the only way to say know that is to see his taxes over a significant time period. If his taxes aren’t important, why make that statement?

            2# why not?

            3# If it’s Hillary your talking about, why isn’t there a trial, an investigation, or anything against her? Trump promised one, but then says she’s a great person. Which is it?

          • Dreamweaver1957

            Once again, you’re still a fool. You have plenty to say about nothing. Cut with tax returns. The POTUS is NOT required to disclose his tax returns. So get over it. And you should hold onto your ass fred. Hillary’s time is coming. And in your own words: it’s astonishing that a moron like you exist.

          • Brent Lutz

            And yet you clearly care about what I have to say. You’re the one that brought up claims about tax rate, which is actually impossible to know without having all the tax returns. I never said anything about POTUS being required to show tax returns. So why do you keep bringing it up? And that’s convenient on Hillary … “her time is coming, coming …”. You can keep on saying that forever, and so never own up the fact that it’s idiotic to think she ever should/would go to jail … again, pure cowardice.

            Also, can you actually not write proper grammar, or is it just pure laziness you can tack on to the cowardice as well?

          • Shel

            Taxes are private multiple forms on multiple types of businesses extremely difficult to understand and number three there is an ongoing investigation into Hillary and the entire Clinton crime syndicate

          • Nancy Walters

            hello, get real, Brent…We the People would have liked to seen the Records Sealed by the muslim himself..BHO. Explain that one that the so called president of our country would be allowed to hide everything about himself. you lefties are totally delusional.

        • Florence Sciara Simpson

          No too concerned with the Felonies Hillary committed while being paid with our tax money? Not concerned with her destruction of public property? Not concerned with WHO GAVE THE ORDER FOR OUR SOLDIERS TO “STAND DOWN” IN BENGAHZI ?? Showing tax returns is not a requirement for being elected POTUS. Therefore, non of anyone’s damn business.

      • katherine cassell harvey

        Why did Obama give 100,000 to the brotherhood of muslims explain that one. And yes the check was real. Stop taking up for these cruds

        • mike bolen

          What are you talking about trump pays more on taxes than obammy and bernie and buffet pays a lower rate

        • Florence Sciara Simpson

          Yes, of OUR money! I didn’t give him permission to use my money for that reason

    • joe owens

      You are truly stupid.

    • Florence Sciara Simpson

      Showing tax returns is not a requirement to being elected POTUS. None of our business. Only those jealous of the lifestyle he has lived are interested in the tax returns. If you and every other person wanting to see his tax returns, then why don’t you want to see Hillary punished for her Factual Felonies committed?

      • LogicBomb

        Because 1st to prosecute Hillary for having a private email server you would have to explain why the law Mnot applied to previous Presidents and staff and members of Congress. In criminal law, lack of enforcement can be used as a defense. The counter would be to arrest Paul Ryan and our current President who for the last 65 days has been using unsecured servers with both his private phone emails. and his personal computers at Trump Tower and Marilago. It’s a kettle of worms no Republican can afford to open. As for the situation, there was no consequence to her mistake/or blatant use of the private server. Can you discern what consequence occurred from its use? Remember too Comey said since their was no “the act is not culpable unless the mind is guilty”. In jurisdictions with due process, there must be both actus reus (“guilty act”) and mens rea for a defendant to be guilty of a crime. Hillary Clinton might be guilty of purposefully ignoring the rule but since their was no intent to defraud or damage the country by the act it lacked criminal prosecutorial weight and no judge would go beyond arraignment. I think you need to stick to whatever field of study you are more adept at since criminal law seems to not be fully understood by you.

    • katherine cassell harvey

      Trump is not anynway like hrc. That witch has been doing evil long before she and Bill got to Washington. She got taibted blood grom the prisons and sold it to hospitals and blood banks. And alot of people died from hep and aids from her money hungry power play. Numerous people just go to Haiti and talk to the the poor people who waited for the Clintons to come and rebuild there cities and neighborhoods and all the billions Clinton got from donations all over the world. She gave there friends the goverment contracts so they could make a killing also. And her very dear friend was caught child trafficing and locked up. But don’t worry Clinton got her off. And now she is one of the heads of the Amber alert. You better hope none of your children or grand children go missing. You people do not want to know how evil hrc is. All you can harp on is Trumps tax return and the stupid fictitious Russian story. Mean while there are children who need help in being found. So excuse me if i do not care about the silly taxes of Trump or the Russians. There are real things that should come before that nonsense

      • LogicBomb

        Katherine Cassell Harvey what contrived drivel are you spouting? Nothing of the sort ever happened exactly where did you get your information? Brietbart or the Russians?

  • Brent Lutz

    This is such stupid shite. If you buy into any part of this you’re a friggin’ idiot. And who the hell cares about Hillary at this point? Certainly not Trump …

    campaign of Donald Trump — or at least during the latter stages, as revelation after revelation about the Democrats was dumped by WikiLeaks — there was a steady drumbeat from the media, from the team working for Hillary Clinton and others that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia.

    That is, that Russian hackers were responsible for the leaks ravaging the Democratic Party and Clinton, and WikiLeaks was merely the conduit the Russians were using to publish the information. There was even talk that the Russians were going to hack the election itself and affect the outcome.

    In the end, ex-President Obama ended up denying there was any tampering with the election results by Russians, and now, finally, it appears the Democrats have all but conceded that media hype about Russian collusion with the Trump campaign isn’t backed up by even an ounce of truth.

    An article on political website The Intercept by award-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald was quoted widely in the media recently wherein Greenwald stated that “key Democratic officials are clearly worried about the expectations [regarding Trump-Russia collusion] that have been purposely stoked and are now trying to tamp them down. Many of them tried to signal that the beliefs the base has been led to adopt have no basis in reason or evidence.”

    Greenwald went on to call the Trump-Russia story a “fact-free conspiracy” and quoted at length globalist cheerleader Michael Morell, former acting head of the CIA for President Obama and one of the most prominent public officials to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. (Political watchers may remember Morell loudly calling for the death of aides to Vladimir Putin in an interview last August with PBS’ Charlie Rose.)

    “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there’s smoke, but there’s no fire at all,” Morell admitted, adding, “There’s no little campfire; there’s no little candle; there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”

    Regarding the so-called ‘Dirty Dossier’ on Trump produced by British intelligence veteran Christopher Steele that was published by Buzzfeed and CNN in December last year, Morell admitted that Steele had paid his sources, which probably meant they were compromised or exaggerated.

    The dossier “doesn’t take you anywhere, I don’t think,” he frankly confessed. Of course, last August, Morell was much more accusatory toward then-candidate Trump, saying then, “In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”

    But perhaps Morell is taking a new cue from his former boss, ex-Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper, who declared on NBC’s Meet the Press that regarding Trump and Russia, “we had no evidence of such collusion.”

    This statement is all the more remarkable coming from a man who’s known for prevarication if it can politically benefit him. It should be noted that Morell left the CIA in 2013 (despite remaining very tightly connected to it), while Clapper was Obama’s DNI until January 20 of this year.

    Officially, the Senate is still conducting an inquiry into Trump’s possible ties to Russia, and an article in Buzzfeed observed, “There’s a tangible frustration over what one official called ‘wildly inflated’ expectations surrounding the panel’s fledgling investigation… Several committee sources grudgingly say, it feels as though the investigation will be seen as a sham if the Senate doesn’t find a silver bullet connecting Trump and Russian intelligence operatives.”

    One Democratic committee member confessed to Buzzfeed, “I don’t think the [committee’s] conclusions are going to meet people’s expectations.” Yet, those expectations are still incredibly desirous that something significant will be found.

    Ben Smith, Buzzfeed’s editor-in-chief stated that the demand for incriminating evidence “is so strong that Twitter and cable news are full of the theories of what my colleague Charlie Warzel calls the Blue Detectives — the Left’s new version of Glenn Beck, digital blackboards full of lines and arrows. It’s a simple fact that while news of Russian actions on Trump’s behalf is clear, hard details of coordination between his aides and Putin’s haven’t emerged.”

    In their rush to smear Republicans, Democrats have been throwing mud at many Trump cabinet appointees and nominees by labeling them Putin lovers or Kremlin agents. Trump’s first National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn was forced to resign over phone contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions was accused of lying to Congress about meeting with Kislyak.

    Very recently, John Podesta’s Center for American Progress (CAP) think tank claimed there’s a “Fifth Column” of Russian operatives helping to organize sympathy for Russia in Europe via far-right political parties, and that in turn, this will help bring the Trump administration closer to Vladimir Putin’s regime.

    CAP wrote on its website that Trump or Flynn met with far-right European leaders such as France’s Marine Le Pen and Austria’s Heinz-Christian Strache in New York City, despite the Trump administration strongly denying any such meetings took place (Le Pen was filmed entering Trump Tower in January of this year, but there was no evidence of a meeting with Trump).

    CAP also has called out Trump’s Chief Strategist Steve Bannon’s former website Breitbart News as having promoted right-wing European nationalist parties such as France’s National Front, Austria’s FPO, Germany’s AfD, Britain’s UKIP, Italy’s Northern League and the Netherlands’ PVV. But as the CIA’s Morell says, this is just smoke, without any proof of a fire.

    As Glenn Greenwald writes, “Many Democrats have reached the classic stage of deranged conspiracists wherein evidence that disproves the theory is viewed as further proof of its existence, and those pointing to it are instantly deemed suspect.”

    In fact, even Buzzfeed compared Democratic conspiracy-seekers to the followers of Infowars’ Alex Jones and seemed to mock their theories with a flashy infographic showing ties between Trump, his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and people and organizations in Russia and Ukraine.

    In perhaps the ultimate admission that the collusion stories are based on whole cloth, on March 20, FBI Director James Comey testified to the House Intelligence Committee that as of August or September of last year, “[the Russians] concluded based on the polling that a lot of people were reading that Mr. Trump didn’t stand a chance [of winning the presidential election].”

    During the hearing, Trump himself tweeted that “The NSA and FBI tell Congress that Russia did not influence the electoral process.” When Democratic Representative Jim Hines of Connecticut brought up this tweet in near-real-time to Director Comey, Comey denied that the FBI was making a statement one way or the other regarding Russian influence on the election’s outcome and claimed his bureau’s investigation was still “ongoing,” despite no hard facts whatsoever being presented in the hearing.

    Later the same day, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh asserted that while no new information was presented, Comey’s “ongoing investigation” talk may be a pre-emptive notice to Trump to cease his efforts to “drain the bureaucratic swamp” in Washington, lest he tempt efforts by Congressional lawmakers — on both sides of the aisle — to impeach him. According to Limbaugh, a political message has been sent: “you either straighten up and fly right, or you’re gone.”

    It will be interesting to see how this game of Spy vs. Spy will play out in the coming months, but for now, it appears the Democrats are simply blowing smoke from their own .

    • Harry Wheeler

      I suspect that when the s**t starts to hit the fan, and it will, a lot of dems will start eating each other, figuratively speaking. The ones that get subpoenaed first will get immunity and the rest will topple like dominos. This is likely to go on for years with some moving to French Polynesia next door to Obummer to avoid prison. They should immediately revoke Hellery’s passport after an indictment is filed. (And a few others)

      • Brent Lutz

        Cool, so I assume you’re willing to back your words with some meaningful follow up? i.e. in a few years, when your “suspicions” may be proven wrong, you’ll show up again and say “gee, I’m sorry, that was way wrong if me to say”? Don’t worry, I already know the answer is no. Cowardice is a hallmark of your kind. ALSO, what happened to that special prosecutor Trump promised then? Oh yeah, total BS … and, of course, more cowardice …

        • Dreamweaver1957

          You’re such a fool. Obama stsrted the Russian BS long before the election. He tried to discredit Trump. He knew Clinton wasn’t going to win the election. You just acting like the moron you are. Nobody really gives a crap what you think anyway.

          • John Doe

            Ditto..

          • Brent Lutz

            And conveniently you don’t address my point (because of cowardice) … where is that special prosecutor against Hillary? And also, for someone that doesn’t care what I think, you’re responding to my thoughts plenty (along with others). So, blatant proof that you are a liar, not that that bothers you, clearly.

      The Clinton Foundation is an operating foundation. 87% of our spending goes directly to programs that improve people’s lives around the world. Still collects money and helps the world with famine and aids resources. I would imagine you donate to a charity often and that your conscience is clear. As a Christian I donate both my time and money to helping the homeless and the poor. I lost my leg to diabetes and for the last 16 years have been both a teacher and an advocate for child issues.

    In their rush to smear Republicans, Democrats have been throwing mud at many Trump cabinet appointees and nominees by labeling them Putin lovers or Kremlin agents. Trump’s first National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn was forced to resign over phone contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions was accused of lying to Congress about meeting with Kislyak.

    Very recently, John Podesta’s Center for American Progress (CAP) think tank claimed there’s a “Fifth Column” of Russian operatives helping to organize sympathy for Russia in Europe via far-right political parties, and that in turn, this will help bring the Trump administration closer to Vladimir Putin’s regime.

    CAP wrote on its website that Trump or Flynn met with far-right European leaders such as France’s Marine Le Pen and Austria’s Heinz-Christian Strache in New York City, despite the Trump administration strongly denying any such meetings took place (Le Pen was filmed entering Trump Tower in January of this year, but there was no evidence of a meeting with Trump).

    CAP also has called out Trump’s Chief Strategist Steve Bannon’s former website Breitbart News as having promoted right-wing European nationalist parties such as France’s National Front, Austria’s FPO, Germany’s AfD, Britain’s UKIP, Italy’s Northern League and the Netherlands’ PVV. But as the CIA’s Morell says, this is just smoke, without any proof of a fire.

    As Glenn Greenwald writes, “Many Democrats have reached the classic stage of deranged conspiracists wherein evidence that disproves the theory is viewed as further proof of its existence, and those pointing to it are instantly deemed suspect.”

    In fact, even Buzzfeed compared Democratic conspiracy-seekers to the followers of Infowars’ Alex Jones and seemed to mock their theories with a flashy infographic showing ties between Trump, his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and people and organizations in Russia and Ukraine.

    In perhaps the ultimate admission that the collusion stories are based on whole cloth, on March 20, FBI Director James Comey testified to the House Intelligence Committee that as of August or September of last year, “[the Russians] concluded based on the polling that a lot of people were reading that Mr. Trump didn’t stand a chance [of winning the presidential election].”

    During the hearing, Trump himself tweeted that “The NSA and FBI tell Congress that Russia did not influence the electoral process.” When Democratic Representative Jim Hines of Connecticut brought up this tweet in near-real-time to Director Comey, Comey denied that the FBI was making a statement one way or the other regarding Russian influence on the election’s outcome and claimed his bureau’s investigation was still “ongoing,” despite no hard facts whatsoever being presented in the hearing.

    Later the same day, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh asserted that while no new information was presented, Comey’s “ongoing investigation” talk may be a pre-emptive notice to Trump to cease his efforts to “drain the bureaucratic swamp” in Washington, lest he tempt efforts by Congressional lawmakers — on both sides of the aisle — to impeach him. According to Limbaugh, a political message has been sent: “you either straighten up and fly right, or you’re gone.”

    It will be interesting to see how this game of Spy vs. Spy will play out in the coming months, but for now, it appears the Democrats are simply blowing smoke like you pukes who hate the truth.

    • LogicBomb

      Exactly why would this worry the public? Since successfully protected the rights of children in the 70s and 80s and has never been the subject of any malpractice in protecting children. Exactly what would the public be worried about Katherine or are you just ignorant of history or even facts about her life. I would imagine you ate up all the lies that the Russian’s fed the internet in the last two years.
