A federal judge ruled ruled this week that the State Department turn over emails that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent on Sept. 13, two days after Benghazi happened.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued the order, signaling that Clinton is still very much in the spotlight.
According to reports, these emails contain details about “phone calls made by President Barack Obama to Egyptian and Libyan leaders immediately following the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi.”
“The two records, even if just barely pre-decisional, are not deliberative. (The State Department) has pointed to very little to support its characterization of these two records as deliberative, and the Court’s in-camera review of the documents reveals that they do not fall within that category,” Jackson wrote in her ruling.
Conservative Tribune reports:
A pre-decisional document is compiled in order to help a decision-maker arrive a decision — something these documents most likely weren’t. The deliberative process refers to a process in which a document can be exempted from being released under the Freedom of Information Act.
Clinton probably isn’t going to be too happy to hear about this. She is just starting to worm her way back into the political arena, and now more information about Benghazi might be coming to light.
Interestingly, even though the Trump administration is in power, the State Department is still trying to prevent these emails from becoming public record.
If true, this means that there are individuals still working for Clinton within the State Department.
“Does President Trump know his State and Justice Departments are still trying to provide cover for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama?” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton asked.
Does Clinton deserve to go to jail over the way she handled and tried to hide the Benghazi scandal? Share this story on social media and leave a comment below.
