Judge Royce Lambert also RAILED at the DOJ and State Dept., and the glaringly obvious attempts to cover for Clinton, destroy evidence, and obfuscate the Truth, deliberately thwarting the investigation(s) into her actions.

Hopefully we will FIINALLY GET SOME CRUCIAL QUESTIONS ANSWERED, instead of STONEWALLED.

The current Justice Department made things worse,” the judge said, referring to an October hearing in which he initially flatly accused Justice lawyers of lying, then retreated a bit.

In the 11-page order issued on Thursday, Lamberth stopped short of alleging outright dishonesty, but he came close.

“Counsel’s responses strain credulity,” he wrote. “To preserve the Department’s integrity, and to reassure the American people their government remains committed to transparency and the rule of law, this suspicion cannot be allowed to fester.”

Judge orders more fact-finding in Clinton email case

The email controversy that dogged Hillary Clinton through much of the 2016 presidential race could well be kicking around through the 2020 contest after a federal judge ordered additional fact-finding into whether Clinton’s use of the private email system was a deliberate effort to thwart the Freedom of Information Act.

In a scathing opinion issued Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said that despite FBI, inspector general and congressional investigations into Clinton’s use of a private account for all her email traffic during her four years as secretary of state, the conservative group Judicial Watch should be permitted to demand documents and additional testimony about the practice.



Lamberth also again expressed concerns that lawyers at the Justice Department and the State Department misled the court when they tried at the end of 2014 to wrap up Judicial Watch’s FOIA suit about Benghazi talking points even though some officials were aware months earlier that Clinton had tens of thousands of emails on a private system and had agreed to turn many of them over to State at its request.

“State played this card close to its chest,” the judge complained. “At best, State’s attempts to pass-off its deficient search as legally adequate during settlement negotiations was negligence born out of incompetence. At worst, career employees in the State and Justice Departments colluded to scuttle public scrutiny of Clinton, skirt FOIA and hoodwink this court.”

Have Barr open yet another Clinton investigation. The Trumpers have until 2020 to get the results they want.

Let them. Personally I could give a flying "you know what" what happens to Hillary if they can make a case for her guilt and prosecute her. Frankly I don't think they can. But if they do, such is life.

But let me remind you folks on the Right that are drooling over the idea of prosecuting Hilary there is far more sludge on your side of the aisle than mine. Once you start prosecuting political adversaries good luck stopping and that works both ways!

As long as NO MORE OF THE FACTS are blocked...fine. What do you suggest we do about the WILLFULLY DESTROYED EVIDENCE?

No one held accountable?

You have:

1. A Republican Senate

2. A Republican House

3. A Republican DOJ

Why hasn't Hillary been investigated in the past 2 years? You blame Obama's DOJ but Republicans had the House and Senate. They opened plenty of investigations. It seems irrational for you to blame Obama considering Republicans are fully in power now and had the House and Senate when Obama was in office.

More irrational nonsense from you. Are you really a T-Rex typing away with your little arms?

It's amazing considering all the bad news surrounding Trump that you go to your happy place complaining about a woman who is no longer in office.

If there is proof of the law being broken..such as WIILLFULLY DESTROYING EVIDENCE...oh wait...that's not even in dispute..but "not prosecuted" under the Obama Swamp KGB-FBI/DOJ.

An ACTUAL INVESTIGTION w/o the previous administration RUNNING INTERFERENCE would be a nice change.
