Obama Appointed Judge Dismisses Case that Aimed to Keep Search for Hillary’s Missing Emails Alive

A case that would have compelled the State Department to keep searching for Hillary’s missing emails has been dismissed by an Obama appointed judge. 

As reported by the WashingtonExaminer

A federal judge in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed a case Thursday which would have compelled the State Department and the U.S. archivist to continue searching for emails from Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state in which she used a private email server and address.The case, brought by Cause of Action and Judicial Watch, didn’t stem from a Freedom of Information Act request, as is usually the case with those watchdog groups. Instead, the two groups were pressing the court to rely on a line from the Federal Records Act, which commands the archivist team up with the U.S. Attorney General’s office to recover documents which may have been “unlawfully removed from that agency[.]”

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg dismissed the case, essentially ruling that previous efforts to track down Clinton emails by the Federal Bureau of Intelligence left little else to be done, arguing in his ruling that Cause of Action and Judicial Watch, “cast no real doubt on that conclusion.”

“The fact that this case was dismissed does not absolve Secretary Clinton or show that all of her unlawfully removed email records have been recovered,” Cause of Action President John Vecchione said in a press release. “In fact, the Court’s decision shows that Secretary Clinton violated the Federal Records Act and that a subset of her work-related emails remains missing. Unfortunately, the Court concluded that efforts by the FBI in its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material, which resulted in the recovery of numerous emails that Clinton had not previously turned over, left nothing further for the Attorney General to do.”
