A watchdog group contends that even though former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost the election, the American public still has a right to know the contents of her official emails from her time as secretary of state under President Barack Obama’s first term.
Judicial Watch maintains that it has won a major court ruling from the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in a case that would require Secretary of State John Kerry to seek the help of the Attorney General in recovering Clinton’s additional emails.
Chris Farrell, who serves as director of Research and Investigation at Judicial Watch, is confident that the email scandal is not going away anytime soon.
"We're going to get to the bottom of this,” Farrell assured. “It doesn't matter whether the public's attention has shifted to something else, [and] it doesn't matter because Mrs. Clinton wasn't elected. That's not what we're asking about. Those records belong to the American public – and we're going to fight to get them back."
Farrell also insists that all of these questions that are being asked in this civil proceeding could reveal information that incoming Attorney General Jeff Sessions may be compelled to act on.
"The national security crimes that Mrs. Clinton committed, those of the circle around her people – like Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills – there's a national security crime involved,” Farrell argued “There [are] serious fundraising questions concerning the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative – their supposed charities which are really just money-laundering operations and influence-buying rackets."
Furthermore, Farrell points out that it is quite possible that once they take office, incoming President Donald Trump and Attorney General Sessions could expedite the release of many government documents being sought by Judicial Watch.
