Even though Hillary Clinton may not be our president, that doesn’t mean that her myriad problems are over. In fact, the ruling a judge just slammed her with over her Benghazi emails proves that even though she’s out of government, she still doesn’t have anywhere to hide.
A judge ruled Tuesday that the State Department must continue to search for emails related to the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that were sent by several top Clinton aides.
In a case brought by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, D.C. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered officials at the State Department “to search the state.gov e-mail accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jacob Sullivan,” three of Clinton’s closest aides during her time at Foggy Bottom.
“The court finds that State’s search was inadequate insofar as it did not search the official state.gov e-mail accounts of Secretary Clinton’s three aides, and orders State to conduct a supplemental search of those accounts,” the ruling read, according to The Hill.
The search is pursuant to a March 2015 Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a group which has been instrumental in obtaining many of the e-mails from Clinton’s tenure as the secretary of state.
“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 the 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?”
The group has also filed motions asking the courts to compel the State Department to thoroughly search Clinton’s email account for any and all Benghazi emails, as well as requiring them “to produce all records of communications between Clinton and top aide Jake Sullivan” in regards to Susan Rice’s appearance on “Meet the Press” on the Sunday following the attack.
Of course, this wouldn’t be necessary had Hillary been upfront with the American people from the get-go regarding Benghazi. Five years later, we’re still sorting through the mess that she left behind. One thing has become clear, though: the more she tries to hide, the more conservatives are going to push back.
