A federal judge this week shredded the Obama administration in court, suggesting the State Department was deliberately covering up evidence of illegal activity by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Where there is evidence of government wrongdoing and bad faith, as here, limited discovery is appropriate,” U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth wrote as part of a ruling that a watchdog group could proceed with discovery related to Clinton’s server…
… “Plaintiff is not relying on ‘speculation’ or ‘surmise’ as the State Department claims,” he added. “Plaintiff is relying on constantly shifting admissions by the government and the former government officials.”
Lamberth then unloaded on the Obama administration, accusing them of possible wrongdoing.
“Where there is evidence of government wrong-doing and bad faith, as here, limited discovery is appropriate, even though it is exceedingly rare in FOIA (freedom-of-information) cases,” Lamberth’s order declared.
