Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch was on The Kelly File, Thursday night, to talk about his group’s years-long efforts to get Hillary Clinton’s emails from the State Department. Six+ years of document requests had turned up nothing.
“It was notable,” Fitton said. “So notable that we filed additional lawsuits just to make sure they didn’t have an out not to give us the material.”
He said they ended up dismissing one lawsuit after the State Dept told them that they had searched her office and didn’t find anything.
“They had an obligation to tell us,” Fitton declared. “They’re not only lying to us, they’re messing with the courts – and this is a seven year cover-up. The administration knew this from the beginning. As soon as she began using this email account – and it’s not a private email account. It was a government account that was disguised and hidden from the American people.”
He said that Clinton’t lawyer’s should no longer have access to the emails because “there’s a criminal violation potential, here.”
“You can go to jail for mishandling classified information,” Fitton noted.
