Federal Judge “Shocked” To Find Obama State Dept Lied To Protect Hillary From Email Server Lawsuits

The noose appears to be tightening further around the lawless behaviors of the Obama administration in their frantic efforts to protect former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

As Fox News reports, the transparency group Judicial Watch initially sued the State Department in 2014, seeking information about the response to the Benghazi attack after the government didn’t respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Other parallel lawsuits by Judicial Watch are probing issues like Clinton’s server, whose existence was revealed during the course of the litigation.

The State Department had immediately moved to dismiss Judicial Watch’s first lawsuit, but U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth (who was appointed to the bench by President Ronald Reagan) denied the request to dismiss the lawsuit at the time, and on Friday, he said he was happy he did, charging that State Department officials had intentionally misled him because other key documents, including those on Clinton’s email server, had not in fact been produced.

“It was clear to me that at the time that I ruled initially, that false statements were made to me by career State Department officials, and it became more clear through discovery that the information that I was provided was clearly false regarding the adequacy of the search and this – what we now know turned out to be the Secretary’s email system.”

“I don’t know the details of what kind of IG inquiry there was into why these career officials at the State Department would have filed false affidavits with me. I don’t know the details of why the Justice Department lawyers did not know false affidavits were being filed with me, but I was very relieved that I did not accept them and that I allowed limited discovery into what had happened.”

In a somewhat stunningly frank exchange with Justice Department lawyer Robert Prince, the judge pressed the issue, accusing Prince of using “doublespeak” and “playing the same word games [Clinton] played.”

That “was not true,” the judge said, referring to the State Department’s assurances in a sworn declaration that it had searched all relevant documents.

“It was a lie.”

Additionally,  Fox notes that Judge Lamberth said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton’s server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

“I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case.”

On Friday, Lamberth said he did not know Mills had been granted immunity until he “read the IG report and learned that and that she had accompanied [Clinton] to her interview.”

We give the last word to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, who was present at the hearing, as he pushed the White House for answers.

“President Trump should ask why his State Department is still refusing to answer basic questions about the Clinton email scandal,” Fitton said.

“Hillary Clinton’s and the State Department’s email cover up abused the FOIA, the courts, and the American people’s right to know.”

Perhaps the deep state remains in control behind the scenes after all (consider the recent back-pedal on declassifying the Russian probe documents)?

        Isn’t there a law about lying to a judge and making a false report?????

          Yes there is, funny how NO ONE has been charged with perjury yet!

          I am so sick of all this supposed evidence of wrong doing but no prosecutions to date!

            All part of the act to give people false hope and prolong this farce. They, Deep State, know no one will buck up. Business as usual. The real test comes when confiscation of citizens guns takes place. Then I hope the people of this Constitutional Republic will finally make a stand together.

              It’ll never happen. They’ll continue to pass “common sense” laws until you just can’t own one, so the future residents of the country will not have access to it little by little.

              They know they can’t just jump in and take them. They’re aren’t that stupid.

        Remember when she had the FBI agree to destroy her laptop after the interview?

        Destroying evidence? Thats fucked up.

        They did that so the next administration could not go back and prosecute.

        The FBI is guilty of conspiracy for tampering with evidence.

        • Plan twice, prep once

          Yes the FBI destroyed Hillary’s lap top, but then there was Anthony Weiners laptop, with the in case I die files…. including a file that reportedly shows Hillary and Amidina killing and sacrificing a child, with Hillary cutting off her face and wearing it as a mask, while having sex.

          These files are in the hands of two different LEO systems. The FBI and NY PD. Can both be erased without a trace?

          Hillary is going down for murder, child prostitution, etc.

            Plan twice:

            Wow! That explains the masks worn at those elite parties like in Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut”, which is said to be a Rothschild party. The English Royals wear those masks, too. And there are stories of children missing after the queen visited with some orphans. All about Haiti and the Clinton Foundation pedo rings so goes the rumor mill. The middle class is the most moral class. Those at the bottom are too apathetic to care about morals, and those at the top are too arrogant to care about morals.

      Hillary Clinton is never going to be brought to justice. The only hope we have for justice is that she kicks the bucket soon. Same for Slick Willy and Podesta and all their cronies.

      How do you hang a snake?? or in this case snakes!!!
      Hell will freeze over before we see any justice and
      charges of treason placed on Obumhole-Davis and Hitlery.

      Didn’t they both lose their law licenses once already for
      PERJURING themselves years ago?? Yet they were
      allowed to run for the highesr office in the USA.

      There is not enough space here to list all the treasonous
      things they have done. Oh right…. I forgot they are special!

      Stealing someone’s identity, SS#, foreign exchange, lying to
      Congress….metteling in other countries elections, everything the
      demoncraps rail against conservatives for…..they are guilty of
      themselves. This is just the tip of the iceberg….watch them.

      Just like the Saudi’s….If you are a useful tool with deep pockets
      you don’t have to answer to anybody for anything.

      Crime is growing more deadly everyday. WHY? Because they
      know the only punishment for the elite law breakers is a
      “shame on you”….and a tap on the wrist….if even that.


      Obumhole-Davis appointed offices to as many criminals
      as he could find to build a protective shield around himself
      and every traitorous, communistic, billionaire he could
      find to finance him.
      This is not going to end well.

      The Deep State doesn’t go away easily by knocking off a few of its members anymore than a dandelion filled yard is weeded by picking a few of them.

      It is going to take a concerted effort over a long period of time.

      That’s if we have more resolve to get rid of them than they have to remain in place and can sustain the effort to get rid of them that long. Seems like I see more people giving up on it, surrendering to the deep state resistance instead of maintaining the effort to rid ourselves of it, something that needs a turn around real quick like.

        Unfortunately, their “ace in the hole” is that they control the supply and hence value of money. This yields enormous power and with it the economy can be manipulated. The public is largely ignorant of this power in few hands. Media ownership multiplies its effect to mold public opinion and the sheep “willingly” lead themselves to slaughter.

      When black people are in charge everything turns to crap. Obama and Holder ruined the FBI and the Justice Department. The CIA has been out of control at least since the Nam. We all know who the outlaws are and yet they are investigating us. That just tears it. Get out and vote.

      Who goes to prison and when? I’m not holding my breath for it!

      The “elite” globalists will likely never go though a trial. IF they are prosecuted they have enough cronies on the inside to inform them of their fate and will likely commit suicide instead of giving the people the satisfaction of punishing them. They NEED to be prosecuted if the “rule of law” is to remain, and let the chips fall where they may.

      What ?

      Of course the Deep State’s still in power–even under Trump’s nose. That’s why they’ve incessantly pommeled him in the media–to keep him dizzy as they spin him around so he won’t delve into their agencies and fire them pell-mell.
