Hillary Clinton is once again the subject of an intense search for information regarding one of the most devastating overseas losses in modern history.
Following the September 11th Benghazi attacks in 2012, Clinton received major backlash for her lack of support of the soldiers involved and was the subject of intense scrutiny due to evidence she knew about the attack beforehand.
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton had the power to save many lives that day and did not. Now, her actions from 2012 are bringing her back under fire, as a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch is determined to see she is held responsible.
The search for State Department emails regarding the attack was back in full swing this week, as the lawsuit is initiating extra search efforts.
The Daily Caller reported:
Washington D.C. District Court Judge Amit Mehta, an Obama appointee, ordered State to search the accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s top aides at the State Department, in response to a lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Mehta said that the State Department did not do enough to search for all emails it has on its computer systems regarding the Benghazi attacks, which left four Americans dead.
The State Department reviewed the 30,000-plus emails that Clinton returned to the agency in Dec. 2014. It has also searched emails that Abedin, Mills and Sullivan sent and received on personal accounts.
Previously, private email servers were searched to gain information about the fateful events of that day.
But the State Department dismissed looking at one very important server they had access to the entire time: the state.gov email server.
Judge Mehta initiated the intense search, and while he was unsure in the potential results, he remained diligent in his efforts to find evidence against Clinton.
The Daily Caller continued:
Mehta said that the State Department “has offered no assurance” that the records it has received so far from Clinton and the trio of aides “constitute the entirely of Secretary Clinton’s emails during the time period relevant to Plaintiff’s FOIA request.”
Judicial Watch, which has pursued several lawsuits related to Clinton emails despite her election loss, celebrated Mehta’s order.
Though Judicial Watch celebrated the court’s pursuit, they were still concerned certain individuals in the government were not diligent enough in their efforts to bring Hillary Clinton’s crimes to attention.
The Daily Caller reported:
“This major court ruling may finally result in more answers about the Benghazi scandal — and Hillary Clinton’s involvement in it — as we approach the attack’s fifth anniversary,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement.
“It is remarkable that we had to battle both the Obama and Trump administrations to break through the State Department’s Benghazi stonewall. Why are Secretary Tillerson and Attorney General Sessions wasting taxpayer dollars protecting Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration?”
Do you think evidence against Hillary Clinton may be found in the State Department’s own email server?
