After obtaining new evidence, the public-interest group Judicial Watch is pushing the Justice Department to move forward with a probe into the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes government corruption, has obtained a new Hillary Clinton email in which she admitted that she knowingly used an unsecure BlackBerry device despite being warned by "security hawks" against doing so. Other new emails, according to the group, reveal that the former secretary of state arranged for her daughter, Chelsea, to fly to Germany on the taxpayers' dollars to watch a soccer game; and more dealings with the corrupt Clinton Foundation.
In comments posted on the organization's Facebook page, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton says the DOJ shouldn't abandon the investigation into the Clinton email scandal.
"I don't know how much more classified information has to come out – or more information that Hillary Clinton didn't tell the truth about turning the emails over, or more information about the 'pay to play' – before the Justice Department re-evaluates, re-opens, and reinvigorates any of these Clinton Inc. or Clinton email or Clinton classified mishandling investigations," he states.
"This is something that needs to be done," Fitton continues. "And now we know that again the Clinton email scandal shows, the documents there [show] that the Clinton State Department really was 'corruption central' in the Obama administration – and that's saying a lot."
Fitton argues that Mrs. Clinton must be held accountable. "[She is] still a public figure, she is still accountable to the rule of law," he states. "And should she get away with everything? The Justice Department, I hope, is paying attention as well and they're not cowed by the establishment."
Judicial Watch is urging the Justice Department to accelerate these Clinton email and corruption investigations.
